  1. Since packidge doesn't arrive, I decided to clean my keyboard to kill some time. 

    It's been in use a good couple years now. 


    NSFW Warning! You might wanna throw up! Macro shots really do looks worse than RL tho 😄

      This also doubles as a PSA: clean your keyboards! 😄


      Yep. Very important that you use a keycap remover! Removing by hand will break your caps stems. I know from first hand experience. Had to order a new set for my G610 Orion a while ago.

      Meanwhile I used my fingers because I wouldn't find the tool... 🙄 

      I didn't break any keys, just my fingers. 

  2. Shipment tracking: "delivery between 11:30 and 15:30"

    Me: *checks every 30 minutes*

    Now 17:00

    Me: *leaves work*

    Shipment tracking: "deliver before the end of the work day" 

    Me: "so where my packidge at yo?"

  3. I am actually doing this myself. I just store games on smb shares of my NAS. You are limited to your network speeds but other than long loading times I've had no issues on my 1gbit PCs. But no, you can't run them at the same time twice. A 'better' solution is iscsi but since smb works I haven't bothered with it.
  4. You can configure the same 2FA Code on mutliple devices if you wanted to, so everyone could have it on their phone. I am using a Yubikey, which technically also allows multiple people to use it as you can just stick it into any PC/Phone and generate the 2FA code.
  5. How can i tell if it does? I just installed it and there seems to be a whole bunch of stuff going on. i can't believe this tbh... 1G works just fine. I just selected 1G in the NIC adapter settings. What is happening? Well the problem is, that everything works fine with other switches, so i kinda doubt it's windows, HOWEVER from the first part of my reply, that 1G works, i am left really confused.
  6. Yeah i am also really confused why this happens. Unfortunately the switch is so basic that it doesn't have any kind of button or reset feature or whatever. It's only power cord and RJ45 ports. Netgear support thus far wasn't helpful at all, they only have a phone Hotline where you can't get through. The switch was bought on amazon but Amazon support doesn't want to rma it since I wasn't the one who bought it.... Might have to contact the seller and rma it through them, which sounds like fun.
  7. Anyone? Maybe the Network Gurus @Windows7geor @leadeater? Also tried the Netgear Community but it's like any other Manufacturer Community - pretty much dead.
  8. If you like tinkering with stuff and sometimes get really frustrated then yes, building your own on truenas is a nice idea! However if you like things simply, get something like a synology DS220+ (don't get the J model), throw in two HDD's in raid1 and you are pretty much ready to go.
  9. well i know for a fact that 10G is working between both machines because i have two other 10G swtiches that work just fine AND i can see perfect 10G in one direction here as well. I could try a Linux Boot but i don't reaaally see the point.
  10. yes this is 100% possible. I always do that in a similar way, i copy games over from one PC to another. For Steam it usually works pretty well. Usually.
  11. Hellooooo and welcome to another 10G Ethernet Troubleshooting thread. I recently bought a used GS110-MX, which has two 10G (and 2,5G/5G!) ports, however, one of them can only receive and not send. Here's a iperf, once from PC to NAS, once from NAS to PC. I tried this with multiple PC's and the switch is always the one common factor. I tried with my other two 10G switches and it's fine. It's worth mentioning that it's literally only 9mbit, Accessing the NAS through this just doesn't work, it's incredibly slow. The Switch itself DOES however indicate
  12. I am using Yubikeys together with the Yubi Authenticator and LastPass Pw manager.
  13. If THIS doesn't help you remember your 50 character randomly generated password nothing will, lmao.

      @Origami CactusWell of course you'd hope so, but with everything that happened with leaks throughout the last couple years, why risk it? It literally takes 2 Minutes to update the password.

      Why do all people suggest updating their twitch password.


      Out of an abundance of caution, we have reset all stream keys. You can get your new stream key here.


      Depending on which broadcast software you use, you may need to manually update your software with this new key to start your next stream:

      Twitch Studio, Streamlabs, Xbox, PlayStation and Twitch Mobile App users should not need to take any action for your new key to work.

      OBS users who have connected their Twitch account should also not need to take any action. OBS users that have not connected their Twitch account to OBS will need to manually copy their stream key from their Twitch Dashboard and paste it into OBS.

      For all others, please refer to specific setup instructions for your software of choice.

      Thank you,

      Twitch Staff

  14. TIL - If the Andromeda Galaxy, the closest galaxy with 2,5 Million Lightyears distance, were a lot brighter, it would appear 6x the size of the moon (1 Lightsecond away!) in our night skies.

    Just a fun fact that makes you, once more, realize how HUGE the universe is.

    Imagine if we had this view at night:

      How much brighter would it have to be though? 1000x?

  15. Today i went to my AD and tried on a Rolex for the first time. The new Explorer to be exact. It's really a lovely watch, not gonna lie! The new (old) 36mm size is perfect for me, as i am very slender. However the "wow" effect was kinda missing. It's just a watch. Obviously it's not the most high end piece from Rolex' collection but i thought i'd generally be more impressed. It's still cool and i still want one, but not for the almost 6k asking price and year long waitlist. Pic just for reference, not actually mine/me. In person the 36mm feels really small, but like i said,
