    Finally got a new bios version and hardware raid is working.

    Software Raid. Take a look at low buffer sizes and 32kB. It is reproducible. Now I only need to understand what the hell is going on.

    Picked up a "used" Lenovo yoga 12. Turned out it was used for 49 hours.
     
    the dongles I need: 
    onelink adapter or generic usb to ethernet
    mini hdmi to hdmi
    displayport to mini displayport (for the docking station, only way to get two high res displays working is a MST-hub)

    Demo weekend conclusion:
    Anthem: more bugs then game, don't know how they plan to launch it in 13 days
     
    anno 1800: interesting but the influence system and multiple sessions won't make me pay 60€. When it is 10€ it might be a purchase. At the moment i would say it is worse then the last anno they made (2070) in 2011 which was just unplayable at launch due to DRM Server being offline.
     
    U-Play/Ubisoft support: incompetent as usual

    James Evens got a reaction from TopHatProductions115 for a status update, Totally overengineered solution for the more and more popular black bar video format   
    Totally overengineered solution for the more and more popular black bar video format on youtube:
    Script on a raspberry pi which checks once a day if the channel has a new video, deletes videos older then n days and check for new versions of the youtube downloader. 
    If there is a new video donates a downvote (for the aspect ratio) and downloads it. Now it can be cropped or stretched to 16:9 and finally streamed or copied on demand over the network to tablets, phones and notebooks. Since the video needs to be modified any way the first and last x seconds/minutes can be cut away as they are most of the time uninteresting advertisement (don't care if parts of the video get lost as this is anyway the way i watch youtube).
     
    alternative: YouTube stop focusing on mobile first or allowing high profile "creators" multiple aspect ratios for one video

    1 day,  130 pages handbook, 13 pages raid guide, broken driver cd, bluescreen windows setup/installer and i am still unable to get it working. 😡 
    could mean i end up with a small boot SSD for windows and the larger software raid for everything else.

    6 years old SSD which is kind of dead (forget all data after a few days without power and smart data reset them self). Even the cheapest drives today are much faster and I am still split between Intel 660p and Apacer AS340 raid 0.
