  1. The virtual NIC port forwarding, I pass ports through to the VMs and usually I need to reset the virtual switch in order to get them to work again. Haven't had any issues recently. Uhhh, not of the Hyper-V VMs, the information on them isn't super important. If it is it's backed up by whoever is using the VM. Yeah, I don't imagine a lot of the VMs even using what they are allocated but I just set out the amount of storage that should be definitely enough for the VM. 15 1TB SAS drives and 1 160GB SSD are in the 16 Bays. I boot off of the SSD, the HDDs are the RA
  2. So I have this one Windows Server (Hardware is listed below) that does a TON of things, game servers, HFS servers, SMB, mining, more Windows VMs, probably more things. I am looking for a way to move a lot of these things to different VMs (mainly because HFS needs to be set up manually every time as it uses the registry to save settings and I have 2 instances of HFS running (one for HTTPS and one for HTTP video previews). Also because I would like the ability to reboot windows VMs for updates without taking out everything running on them and the Hyper-V VMs tend to break (especially the po
  3. If you aren't connecting using anything older than Windows 8 you could only allow encypted connections. Microsoft actually does with with Azure so it's at least somewhat secure. It's still probably better to use a VPN but I haven't had any problems with it. To enable encryption/disable SMBv1 & unencrpyted access run these in powershell as Admin: Set-SmbServerConfiguration -EnableSMB1Protocol $False Set-SmbServerConfiguration -EncryptData $True Set-SmbServerConfiguration -RejectUnencryptedAccess $True You can also disable SMBv2 which will require SMBv3 i
  4. Idk, I mentioned in my Fold2 review that I got it just to try it out and see if it's something I like and it definitely is. If you just look at the numbers, yeah. it's just a slightly larger screen however it really feels like having 2 phones, so if you multitask a lot on your phone it's awesome. Stuff like watching videos really isn't any different than on something like a Note20 Ultra. I honestly also really like the narrow outer screen, it's actually something I can use one handed and doesn't feel unwieldy to hold and use (one handed). It really depends on how you use
  5. this is why no one likes the windows search

    It found the exe file for the program

    but instead of launching it it's too busy showing me the bing results for it....

  6. Finally found some full metal keycaps (stainless steel), they are quite nice to type on ːP
    (Sorry for the bad picture)

      Wow, those not only look beautiful, but I can just imagine how great those feel. What switches do you have - I could assume you'd need a higher activation point switch with those.

      I have MX Blues, It's honestly doesn't take noticeably less force than normal keycaps but the sound is quite different. Not nearly as bad as the brass space bar from LTT xD.

  7. So for some perspective I used a Z Fold2 for about 6 months or so before getting a Z Fold3, A lot of the major changes when switching from a traditional phone to a foldable are outlined in my review of the Z Fold2. I'll probably touch on them in this review but if you want more information about foldables in general, go here. Also in a similar vein of how I didn't pay full price for my Z Fold2, I paid no where near full price for my Z Fold3. Samsung allows for 4 devices to be traded in and gives an extra $200 on the first device, I traded in 2 Note20 Ultras and 2 Galaxy Folds, all of them
  8. I've got a Predator CG437K, it's overall a good display but the VA black smearing is quite bad compared to my old IPS and TN panels. Problem for me is I don't want OLED because of burn in (most of the monitor remains static so....), the only other options for monitors in the >40 are VA and the only TVs that are 4k 120hz use HDMI 2.1 which my GPU doesn't support (though I have that club3d adapter and it's not great). I'm hoping for a ~40-50inch 4k 120/144hz IPS monitor to release at some point bruh eh, I'll keep the VA one for now. Acer Predator CG437K Gigabyte Aorus FV43U Asus
  9. Depends on it's value or if I have a use for it. If it's phones (which I have a lot of because I switch phones too often) I usually keep them and reuse them as replacements for something I would have to buy normally. I use a phone to play music and handle nav in my car as well as one for a dashcam. I could easily get a head unit and dashcam that are built for these tasks but if I can use phones with scripts to automate them so they have 90% the functionality why not, I already have the phone. Old PC components usually are either dead or get sold/given to friends, a family friend got

    Look what arrived a day early, Expect a review soon. Excited for my first phone new in box (sure as hell didn't pay full price though :P )

      I might be getting a Motorola One Ace 5G

  11. I hate bluetooth even more now.
    No, I don't want to pair to to someone's random ass headphones. Stop prompting me, you've already done it 4 times.....

    (Also I noticed they talked about this with the oneplus thing on Shortcircuit).
    Also if you're wondering why I have bluetooth on, I have no idea but it's off now.
    also TUYU's is great ok.

  12. US unlimited plans are nuts, Verizon had us paying over $90/month for whatever their beyond top tier unlimiited we promise we won't throttle you plan was.
  13. T-Mobile, came from Verizon's """"unlimited"""" plan (which is really only 22GB until you get throttled to shit). Tmo lets me pass 50GB with basically no slowdowns. I'll take it (it's also cheaper than Verizon) guys I know there's a data breach ok
  14. I gave up on Razer after having 2 keyboards fail in the same way (repeating keypresses) within a few months. After this experience I noticed this is far from uncommon with razer's mice, keyboards, laptops, etc. Didn't all of the Blades Linus gave to his staff end up failing.... Also: Who would win multi billion dollar company's security on the world's most popular operating system or gamers making gaming mice. guys it's a joke, don't think about it too hard.
  15. yeah, that should be plenty. Minecraft worlds really don't take up much space (unless you have TONS of people loading massive areas)
