  1. You need to change your script's file extension to .pyw instead of .py. https://docs.python.org/2/using/windows.html#executing-scripts
  2. They're not cheap because they're ugly, they're cheap because they're used. It's an office liquidation store. With your budget, this is the most realistic option.
  3. Visit your local office liquidation store, they'll have plenty of cheap office chairs for you to try.
  4. @here will only notify you if you are not idle on Discord. This is a role. The server probably has a channel for obtaining notification roles. Do you mean Lite Hash Rate cards? AFAIK they're speculated to release silently.
  5. Just put the "finishing touches" on my 24TB ITX TrueNAS Scale server build! Parts List
  6. You're way overspending on your motherboard. Grab a X570/B550 ASUS TUF or Gigabyte AORUS Elite/Pro.
  7. I believe TrueNAS only officially supports JBOD enclosures. I don't see much sense of trying to create a long-term storage solution while working around antiquated hardware. You might just want to consider putting just one of your drives into commission for a quick and easy Plex server and SMB share if you desperately need a backup. Prices for 11th gen Intel are not terrible, you might want to look at an H510 motherboard with a i5-11400. I went with an i5-11400 for the TrueNAS Scale server I built last month (see signature), which I upgraded from a OptiPlex 9020 SFF. Keep i
  8. If you're planning on using hardware transcoding, keep in mind that Haswell iGPUs perform quite poorly. Avoid these enclosures at all costs, they're a recipe for disaster. TrueNAS cannot monitor these enclosures for drive failures. I'd say you'd probably want to save money until you can buy all new hardware.
  9. I'd go to a local office liquidator and try out chairs. There is no one size fits all chair when it comes to comfort. If you want somewhere to start, you'll probably want to try used Herman Miller Aeron or Steelcase Leap chairs. I personally purchased a used Steelcase Leap V2 for $250 from a liquidator, which outshines my old DX Racer in every possible way.
  10. Use Pulover's Macro Creator from https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=143 to learn the basics of AutoHotKey. The application is open source. If you're willing to learn how to write in AutoHotKey, you may benefit from this thread I contributed in a few months ago:
  11. You can change your username once every 180 days at https://linustechtips.com/settings/username/.
  12. The first screenshotted option is located under your connection's properties, which is displayed under Settings > Network & Internet: Are both devices acquiring their IP address from DHCP? You can check this by following these steps: Press Win+R Enter control /name Microsoft.NetworkAndSharingCenter in Run Click "Ethernet" next to "Connections:" Click "Properties" Click "Network Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" Select "Properties" Ensure that both "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
  13. Check to make sure that: Your network profile is set to "Private" in your connection's Properties (Win+R, enter ms-settings:network in Run). Network Discovery is enabled under Network and Sharing Center > Advanced sharing settings > Private (Win+R, enter control /name Microsoft.NetworkAndSharingCenter /page Advanced in Run).
  14. Make sure you report listings like these as Listing Practices > Fraudulent listing activities > You suspect that a listing is fraudulent. The "Report item" button is on the bottom right underneath "Related sponsored items":
