  1. Calls for Twitch to police 'sexual streaming'

    Or we just stop telling people what we can and can't do with their bodies? If you see something that violates Twitch's ToS then you report it and move on with your life.
  2. Hosting a VPN?

    Honestly just read the manual for your model as each are a little different. Basics are the same though: need either a static IP or dynamic DNS service (e.g. DYNDNS), create user accounts, enable VPN service
  3. Whats the best screwdriver?

    If it's for PC building, you'll want a couple of long shaft ones, I thnk in #4 and #5 sizes? If it's general electronics, the iFixIt toolkits are great: got one about 4 or so years ago when they were on Massdrop and still use it today. The one thing it doesn't do well for PC building is having a really long thin shaft: you may joke however I've run into issues a number of times where I can't get to motherboard or cooler bracket screws in some cases because the chassis gets in the way of my hand: 10-12" screw drivers make this easier. What the iFixIt tool kit does well is quite simple: decent quality bits that haven't yet lost their shape and fits the most common things you'll find.
  4. BitCoin Hits $13,000

  5. US lawmaker lays out plans for anti-loot box law

    Given that data from one of Melbourne's largest hospitals showed that gambling played the primary cause in approximately 1 in 5 suicidal patients who were being admitted. Australia pretty much has the biggest gambling addiction problem in the world and if banning loot crates stops the next wave of youth going down that same road, I'm okay with that.
  6. 4G internet using more data. Help

    Windows 10 updating? https://i.imgur.com/J1w0kOC.png
  7. Hosting a VPN?

    WINDSPEED!!! congrats on admin... was off for a year or so.... so much happened lol I've had it a lot longer than that
  8. Hosting a VPN?

    Most routers can host a VPN - shouldn't need a separate machine for it unless you've got something really basic.
  9. Windows 7 update broken on some systems

    In what sense does it bring nothing new to the table? Are you talking from a consumer standpoint or a business?
  10. Floatplane Doesnt Work On Filtered Network

    Chances are it'll be blocked based on the packet type via L7 DPI. Most enterprise firewalls do this sort of filtering.
  11. Servers for small-medium size company

    So that's an open ended question however you shouldn't be worried about it being unreliable. Microsoft have a 99.9% SLA (service availability agreement) between you and them: more can be found here; https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-trust-center-operations Also some helpful info on the locations of it; http://o365datacentermap.azurewebsites.net/ Millions upon millions of people use this infrastructure, yes it does have issues however all providers will have problems. More info on availibility can be found here: https://portal.office.com/servicestatus Note: there's a much more comprehensive health dashboard available once you login.
  12. I should elaborate more: OneDrive for Business gives you 1TB of file storage per month for about $5.10 per user AUD. Business Essentials is about $6.40 or thereabouts and also gives you quite a few other things including that 50GB mailbox with custom domain. Extra storage is available at a few cents per GB.
  13. So I'd recommend actually looking at Office 365 Business Essentials or Office 365 OneDrive for Business. Essentially OD4B is a component of Business Essentials: think of it as the fries in a cheeseburger meal. For an extra few dollars a month you'll also get a complete Exchange Online mail server, enabling you to do a custom domain (or multiple) for your personalized email addresses. I've pretty much done a similar thing as the data security laws (and information regarding where your data lives) is much much clearer with the enterprise / business versions of Microsoft products due to the compliance regulations they must meet to service government bodies (who use the very same product)
  14. Building School Compute Server

    Oh NVME was easy: Intel had their training thing each year here in Melbourne to which SuperMicro was at - all the help in the world was provided there
  15. Building School Compute Server

    Building servers is a pain - spent like 4 years doing it with SuperMicro and Asus systems and still didn’t know every gotcha with them
