  1. Hey, My current TV (sound) & Music setup at home is a pair of Speakers and Amp attached to a the audio line-out of a PC. The speakers and Amp were given to be second hand from family. My amp seems to be on its last legs, as the speakers are hissing when attached to some of the amp outputs (both speakers hiss/crackle so I think the Amp is the problem not the speakers). It also gets very hot and takes up a lot of room. So I would like to replace the Amp with something a little more modern, smaller and more efficient. Unfortunately I have no idea what sort of amp I nee
  2. Obviously I can only talk generally and not for your specific company but MAC address on its own would not be used to authenticate you onto the network. MAC addresses can be sniffed by Wi-Fi access points (without even your laptop connecting), the laptop broadcasts its MAC address when listing the available Wi-Fi networks. Then once someone knows the MAC address of a laptop, it is trivial to spoof that MAC address and they would be on the network. Normally the company's active directory is used to authenticate onto the network and so you are right, a different HDD with a different
  3. This is only possible if they do not have Secure Boot turned on, as this is a BIOS option and on a lot of enterprise laptop the BIOS is password protected, you might have trouble. Technicalities aside, there is a reason that the laptop is locked down. It has company provided and approved antivirus, endpoint protection, application white-lists, etc. etc. You don't want to be the one who circumvented the protection and released ransomware into your companies network... I would suggest, having a look if you company has a BYOD policy or less locked down engineering u
  4. I don't think this would work with a normal wireless keyboard and two receivers, although there are Bluetooth keyboards that allow you to switch the source. I would recommend looking at synergy: https://symless.com/synergy (They used to be an LTT sponsor so you might be able to find a discount still)
  5. It is also worth considering your IDE. VSCode's python intellisense for example absolutely eats RAM, it is a auto complete option that stores all the libraries in memory and (apparently) uses AI to predict what the next function you want is... Then again you can write your code in notepad/vi/emacs and use basically no RAM... Personally I have a 6th gen i7 and 24GB RAM and find this very useful for running VMs so that I can program on the same OS as the code is going to be deployed to. But I think you could certainly get away with less, especially with smaller pro
  6. so you would want a rule on the sky hub, to port forward to the netgear: inbound port: 3389 ----> outbound ip:, outbound port: 3389 then a rule on the netgear inbound port: 3389 ----> outbound ip: <IP if PC running remote desktop>, outbound port: 3389
  7. you have: status = '0' and then: if status == 0: The first is a string and the second is an integer so they will not be considered equal. On line 18, I would suggest changing to: status = 0 and on line 56, change to: status = 1 Not sure if this will solve you issue but is certainly worth fixing.
  8. Are you using the new netgear as a router or simply as an AP? If the netgear is setup as an AP then the excising rules on the Sky Hub should be enough. If you are using both the Sky Hub and Netgear both as routers then you will need to port forward anything from the Sky router to the netgear router and then on the netgear port forward to the PC you want it to end up as. If you want to share the old config then I can try and be a little more specific
  9. These services have a long list of components, for example: The websites front end (UI) Media delivery stack (CDN etc.) Media ingestion and transcoding user management (both viewers and creators/admins) payment processes suggestion algorithms and I'm sure much much more. Some of these need very different skill sets. For web front end you might want to look at HTML, CSS & JS where as for media transcoding you might be looking at C++/Rust libraries. Are there one or two of these components that you are most interested in startin
  10. TinyMCE would be my go to: https://github.com/tinymce/tinymce wysiwyg = What You See Is What You Get
  11. Virtual box has just released V6 with better Display driver support (I believe it is now very similar to VMWare): https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog-6.0#v0 Maybe it would be worth upgrading to see if you get much performance increase without too big a change?
  12. As it is a privacy concern, not a malicious process, I think we should be fine to discuss this. MAC address randomization is becoming quite common to stop WIFI providers from tracking individuals, it is a out of the box option in Android P: https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/03/08/android-p-feature-spotlight-per-network-mac-address-randomization-added-experimental-feature/
  13. MAC addresses are only transmitted within your local network so your ISP wont be able to see your Laptop/phone/PC MAC address. They will however be able to see the MAC address of your modem/router.
  14. This looks like an possible setup with a RPi and Chrome: https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-kiosk/ And very customisable if you want to make changes. Given you already have the RPi setup, it would be worth giving it a go.
