  1. For anyone who's keeping score here, Bose has responded by saying this suit is inflammatory and more: http://www.businessinsider.com/bose-response-spying-headphone-users-app-2017-4 -- interesting to see how many people (including the hosts) apparently pre-judged the allegations before hearing a peep from the other side. Does the wan show do follow-ups, or is that not a thing?
  2. I like providing updates so here's an update. I went with the 2GB 710 card and it's working nicely and silently. $30 after rebate card. Yes, I am a pussy for accepting such an offer but the retailers I frequent (#walmart) are able to do "split transactions" so I intend on using every penny on that $10 rewards card. Also, can I just say how weird it feels inserting a "half-length" PCIe card into a full-length PCIe x16 slot? It really feels weird but the proprietary nvidia driver and hdmi all seems to be working fine after updating the drivers from mesa. Clean, fresh, and new...almost like a lifestyle.
  3. I'm looking for nothing more than a simple display card on my backup Ubuntu box. AMD still has issues on the latest Ubuntu versions so I'll be buying Nvidia this time (which is quite rare for me.) Here's the specs: i7-920 6GB DD3-1600 tri-channel xfx 4890 (which makes a ton of blower noise -- which is why I want to replace it.) p5something deluxe mobo some random 1tb hitache hdd (probably a deathstar) requirements: hdmi but I can settle with a dvi adapter (as that's the way I'm doing it with the 4890.) no screen tearing (that's why nvidia not amd for linux) probably no gaming but at least the ability to playback 1080p at 30+ fps. Now I know I can probably buy a card that costs $10-15 on ebay that satisfies these requirements but I would rather buy from somewhere NOT shady, is new, and has a minimal warranty. So that brings me to the $30 category: 210 Passive or 8400 GS Passive or GT 610 LP or GT 710 LP (don't be fooled by the scam "rebate card" here.) I'm not even sure those LP cards are going to fit inside a standard case -- everyone asks if a "LP bracket" is included, but isn't that for LP cases? The "standard" versions appear to go for $40.
  4. When I was in high school I made $6.25 an hour. Worked for a year and asked for a raise, got a 10 cents added.
  5. Speaking of stuff for sale @nicklmg, are shirts no longer available in the store? P.S. If I were you, I would seriously make this item a custom order.
  6. Yeah I saw that, actually I found an easier read with basically the same information here. I wonder what the modem will report on the connected device address... Is there any need at all for v6, especially considering my situation?
  7. You might get an updated ifconfig be forcibly restarting the network manager service itself: sudo systemctl restart network-manager.service
  8. @Ronda I was able to produce an instance where the network manager's setting was on "ignored" and re-plugged back into the modem, enabled the wired connection, and no v6 address showed on the base connection just "v6: Ignored" -- I've been trying to replicate it since I'd rather not deal with v6 at all tbh, I don't know the technology enough and just the fact that a link-local address could still be communicating (who knows what) with the modem behind the VPN's back is weird to me.
  9. Hey guys I got a new cable modem/gateway from my isp and it seems like ipv6 is on by default as I'm issued both a v4 and v6 to my network adapter when connected. Now in my ubuntu network manager settings, I can select various options for ipv6 -- automatic, ignore, link-local only. The ignore option seems to still pull down a v6 address. Link-local pulls down an "fe80" address. There's an option to disable v6 globally by adding a grub option but I haven't tried that. The vpn settings seems to carry over v4 traffic over a default tunnel and ignores v6 entirely. test-ipv6.com doesn't show any active v6 address. When the VPN is terminated, I have iptable rules that block all traffic based on the v4 ip from the modem (which is dhcp-reserved.) I don't know what the v6 address would do in this situation...my understanding is that even a link-local address is able to talk with the modem and connected devices. Some guidance would be helpful...
  10. Hey guys, I've been through some grief trying to get these emails back into my inbox, I've hopefully found the solution and thought I would fish for additional insight or comments. I know Linus has complained about this in the past about you'll get less emails if you're less "engaged" in a subbed channel...I don't know if this is true since I haven't personally seen an instance of that (one exception below), but I pretty much watch every video I'm subbed to, including LTT. The one small exception is a gradeAunderA video criticizing runway fashion -- I'm subbed to a few "uppity" runway model fashion channels so Google probably figured I don't want to hear criticism about it -- regardless I still found the video hilarious. Now, for youtube live events (like exciting spacex webcasts or boring white house press briefings), try going into your notifications preferences on youtube, scroll down (and expand any controls) -- if you see "A YouTube Live Event is starting soon....resume", then click "resume." If you don't see this option, then I'm assuming you have that enabled by default. On twitch, in my case my twitch account is linked to a yahoo address and then forwarded to my gmail. Turns out the problem is that yahoo now considers these twitch notifications to be "spam" and will NOT forwarded them to external addresses like gmail (via pop3/imap.) I logged into my yahoo account manually and found a bunch of legit twitch notifications in the spam folder, marked them as "not spam" and then additionally added the sender address (I forgot the exact name, it's something like no-reply@twitch.tv or something) to my yahoo address book -- that theoretically forces yahoo to treat these as "important" inbox emails and will then forward them on to any external address you have setup your yahoo mail account settings. Hope this guide was informative. Comments appreciated.
