  1. You could try disabling power-saving mode for WiFi in Device Manager and seeing if that helps. I've also seen some mentions that Receive Side Coalescing (RSC) with some Intel WiFi-chipset can do this, so if you've got Intel WiFi, you could try disabling RSC in Device Manager.
  2. Debian works fine without UEFI as well. You're doing something else wrong with your setup.
  3. Linus does not read every single post here on the forums. Also, no, Linus doesn't just give away PCs.
  4. Yes, I understood that already, but I can't help you.
  5. No idea, never heard of Simplecom.
  6. You just described a WiFi-repeater/WiFi-router/most WiFi-access points.
  7. Only you can answer that, really. It's not like everyone has the same tastes. I have a OnePlus 8 Pro that can do 120Hz refresh-rate, but I'm happily using 60Hz, because it consumes less battery and the difference between 60Hz and 120Hz is so small that it just doesn't matter, it's just meaningless to me.
  8. I don't have anything to recommend then. Perhaps someone else will chime in with something suitable for your needs.
  9. Alas, that would eat into the available screen-estate for people with small screens on their phones.
  10. Are you looking for a USB-adapter or a PCIe-one? The latter typically have far better performance and range. As for your Internet-connection: how much bandwidth are you paying for and how fast speeds can your access-point handle? Buying the fastest adapter in the world will do nothing, if the access-point isn't up to task. A very good and fast WiFi-adapter that goes in a PCIe-slot would be an Intel AX200NGW with a M.2 -> PCIe - adapter, like e.g. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-AX200NGW-Wi-Fi-6-2-4Gbps-Wireless-BT-5-0-Dual-band-Desktop-PCI-e-Card/254680891767
  11. That, in and of itself, doesn't make him a serial-killer. He just had a fetish towards his mum and attempted to emulate her presence with all that stuff. He did kill several people, yes, but the motivations are not entirely clear and he didn't dress up in anything while he killed them. No, he didn't.
  12. In your LAN, yes. Over the Internet, you'd need to install additional software, just like with a NAS. That's also not specifically a NAS-feature. They just typically run Plex for that and you can run Plex under Windows as well.
  13. If one were to go that far, they should choose an algorithm that's also resistant against quantum crypto - attacks as well, like e.g. one of the solutions mentioned at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-quantum_cryptography#Comparison
  14. Any time you reboot, the NAS goes down. Any time your PC crashes while gaming, your NAS goes down. Any time you have to reboot because of Windows-update or the likes, the NAS goes down. So on and so forth. Also, you don't need to run a NAS in a VM just to share files, since Windows already has the ability to share those over the network.
  15. I am not aware of such, no. Would be a fricking stupid serial-killer, if they did.
  16. Anyone other than Microsoft distributing the .iso-file would be a copyright violation and technically be piracy and, well, as per the forum-rules, we cannot help you with piracy. You're going to have to find that somewhere else, sorry.
  17. That'd be useless. When someone is cracking the encryption of something, they're not using the original software, so the original software having such an option wouldn't matter. Encryption is the algorithm, not the software that makes use of the algorithm and algorithms are just maths -- there is no counter for how many times one has failed to decrypt something.
  18. If you have a good router, yes, you can configure dual-WAN on it and you can route traffic to specific addresses over specific WAN-interface. The two WAN-interfaces don't have to both be physical ones; one of them can be a VPN-connection, yes. It's quite a lot of work to set up and you need to learn the basics of networking, routing and DNS, plus how to operate a proper router. To get started, install a proper router-OS like e.g. Opnsense or Pfsense on a box you want to use as the router, then learn how to use it. (No, I'm not going to hand-hold you through the whole thing, unless I get paid for it. It's too much work.)
  19. You're comparing apples to oranges. CPUs are for general-purpose code, whereas GPUs execute a very limited set of instructions specifically for maths -- you can't run general purpose code directly on a GPU. As such, comparing the clocks of one device to the other doesn't make sense.
  20. The Finnish retailer I typically buy my stuff from is listing the cheapest 3070 - models for 570€. That includes the Zotac GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge and Asus GeForce RTX 3070 DUAL. I'm so far eyeing the Asus-board for myself and the hubby.
  21. Aye, I know the CH340 as well; I've got a few of the bare chips in my parts-bin for projects. (Though I prefer Prolific's PL2303. It's a few pennies more expensive, but far better in all respects.) But yes, you probably confused the two. Not to worry, it happens!
  22. There's always the chance of them getting a heart-attack, so yes, it is possible. Since you mention that they are a drug-addict, there's no saying about the condition of their cardiovascular system and no, you cannot tell the condition just by looking at them.
  23. You've gotten confused about something. To the operating system, yes, it appears as a serial-port, but they read from/write to SPI-flash on the other end. I have a couple of CH341a-boards myself and yes, I have used them to flash various kinds of chips, including the BIOS on one old mobo I have.
  24. That's WAY overcomplicating the matter. A CH341a off of eBay or the likes is extremely cheap and one doesn't need to research any libraries or anything like that, since there are already a bajillion fully fleshed-out apps available. Flashrom, specifically, is the one that's used most often. A CH341a + clips to connect it to the chip off of eBay/Amazon/Aliexpress etc. and then using an app called Flashrom on your PC to upload/download the contents of the chip. You may need to desolder the chip off of your mobo/GPU in order to be able to flash, but you can just try with the clips first.
  25. That'd still be only ~17MB/s (30GB / 30 minutes = 1GB/min ~= 17MB/s), so not a terrible amount. 8K - resolution is 16 times 1080p, so with the above number in mind, 16 * 17MB/s = 272MB/s -- that's still easily handled by a SATA SSD. Obviously, it depends on the bitrate and codec you're using for recording, but no, SATA SSD is unlikely to be a bottleneck even for 8K - recording, unless you're doing lossless. As for IOPS or throughput: recording is a wholly sequential tasks, so IOPS doesn't really matter, unless you're recording multiple streams to multiple files simultaneously.
