  1. My house is tiny so a quiet switch is preferred. (the used enterprise stuff looks tempting, but they are usually power hungry wind turbines) Would like PoE+ for cameras and other future stuff. Any suggestions or brands? Thanks,
  2. This might be a shit answer, but I like to enable WSL (linux for windows) and use mlocate in bash to find stuff quickly. To build an index you do "updatedb" than search with "mlocate -i *thing.stuff*" Heres my favorite command to narrow things down (sed used to change the slashes make it look nice). This example finds all things ending with .iso and grep refines it for things with win in the name: mlocate -i *.iso | sed 's~/mnt/~~g' | sed 's~/~\\~g' | sed 's~.~:\\~2' | grep -i "win" The index might take some time, but its so much better than the frustrating slow windows search crap thing.
  3. I dont want to sound negative, but is this something new that has potential to grow in the future? Access has a great UI but it can turn into a beast if its adopted and used by multiple people.
  4. Install the free OpenVPN or SoftEther on a machine/VM at home or anywhere else that you want to run a VPN on. I use softether all the time for remote access.
  5. IF your talking about dvds / bluerays that you own then MakeMkv is pretty easy. If its not a movie disk then ffmpeg is the bees-knees
  6. Since MDT is free. You could do something janky with it like create a task sequence that has no interactive prompts then run a script on the machines to set the boot order to PXE boot first so they reboot, and start the task. Maybe have a last step in the task to set the PXE boot to last when it finishes. Then you could even hide the task when not needed if you want to make sure people dont get wipped if they manage to PXE boot.
  7. Theres always the free KVM (virt-manager / proxmox) and Xen too
  8. Use Double Driver software to back and restore drives quickly. You can inject drives via DISM for what you want, but its harder. than just making a cloned image.
  9. I dont use mysql, and dont know bash scripting but this worked on my ubuntu machine as Gardening pointed out with that how-to link wget https://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-8.0/mysql-8.0.15.tar.gz tar xvzf mysql-8.0.15.tar.gz mkdir mysql-8.0.15/bld cd mysql-8.0.15/bld apt install libssl-dev apt install libncurses5-dev cmake .. -DDOWNLOAD_BOOST=1 -DWITH_BOOST=../cmake
  10. Use your phones shared data with your own laptop
  11. It was super easy with the "resource override" chrome extension (After some quick googling). Not sure if it can be trusted, but it was ez.. (keep in mind that the discord button is dymically rendered via discord magic to show the numbers online; so you replacing it this way wont show the dynamic content without alot of effort) If you want complete control, and dont trust extensions; then you can run just this site though something like your own squid proxy server and 'MIM' it with your own trusted root cert to keep https. Then use a regular expression to find and replace the image string manually. But dymaically loaded content that is generated after the page loads will require some kind of extension... some people have even made thier own extensions to replace HTML elemts via regular expressions... looks like it would take some time to figure out though.
  12. For just one computer? I would rather do periodic backups to a NAS or HDD; although the restore is slower. Other hypervisors include, Xen Server, KVM + virt-manager, and Hyper-v. Ive played with KVM, and it seems nice. Its also one of the few ones that let you pass though many types of hardware to the guest without paying for that functionality.
  13. If you know it has outbound port 123 access, then check the Windows Time service and run w32tm /resync
