  1. You treat a discussion as a competition, so you've already lost when you just toss away arguments without sourcing it. Anyway, I've concluded that no valid discussion can be had on this forum which is sad.
  2. You realize that we arrest DDOSer in Western Countries right? https://www.securityweek.com/dozens-teens-arrested-over-ddos-attacks http://www.zdnet.com/article/us-male-arrested-for-string-of-ddos-attacks-against-australia-north-america/ http://www.zdnet.com/article/ddos-attacks-how-an-18-year-old-got-arrested-for-trying-to-knock-out-systems/ I don't find anything like that in China/Russia.
  3. So you're perfectly fine with getting DDOS'd day in and day out anytime China DDOSer feels like it? Hmm ok. I think countries should have privileges taken away on the Internet if they don't do anything to regulate on how Internet should be used. China already have Great Firewall of China set up and yet they won't regulate it.
  4. I disagree and I think AMD have a great future ahead while it may be difficult road for them, I've seen a lot of my peers begin to use AMD GPU and CPU more, because of the cost, security and compatibility on Linux (Seriously, Intel CPU is a disaster on security front with Spectre and Meltdown and the biggest problems are their attitude and unwillingness to do something about it.) On Wayland, a lot of the DE simply doesn't want to support Nvidia EGLStream, so it's just Intel integrated graphic and AMD GPU for Wayland on most of the DE that utilize GBM. In some of the more computatio
  5. Honestly at this point, I am wondering why we haven't start cutting off China and Russian internet from the rest of the world internet, sure, it wouldn't completely block them out, but it would drastically reduce the amount of bandwidth that they are able to utilize to attack us with and quite frankly, they simply aren't going to be responsible on how they use the Internet. It have already gotten to a point that anytime you started up a new Virtual Server on Linode, Ovh, or DigitalOcean, you'll almost always see an attack coming from China or Russia trying to log into your VM Server via SSH an
  6. For fun, I've put together a Thinkmate 22 NVMe server configuration which is priced at $152,890.00 with each NVMe slot providing 6.4 tb of storage from Micron Max Series 9200 U.2 PCI-e. It basically provides 140 TB of storage with insane IO performance and essentially provides 13 GB of storage for each student in a University with 11,000 students with just one server alone, you basically can buy 4 or 5 same servers and accomplish that goal of giving each student 50 GB of shared drive space with the grand total cost of about $611,560.00 which also have 1.5 tb of RAM, 2 x Twenty-Two-Core Intel®
  7. Not hard to imagine since it's about 44 TB total in size, University/College can easily afford multiple servers into a cluster to support campus wide network load for student's file shares and SSD/NVMe make that pretty affordable. Let's assume one server can support 4 NVMe via motherboard and have 2 x16 PCI-e slots (which each can support 4 M.2 Slots with Dell Quad M2 Slots Adapter) You could buy 2TB PCIe NVMe from Samsung 960 Pro Series for each slot and you basically have about 12 slots total from above configuration and that give you 24 TB at ~63GB/s theoretically when using Raid configurat
  8. That's a bit of an overkill to simply install Windows Server 2016 Essential which is a $500 server license and it isn't really built for desktop usage. Maybe look into Linux + Windows with GPU Passthrough as a potential alternative? You could lock in Windows VM to prevent it from updating by either firewall or by making a snapshot of the OS and then destroy the update binary (so that it couldn't be run even if they want to) and when you want to update Windows, you can simply restore from snapshot and go from there though you would need to keep games or other software on separate drive to avoid
  9. Are you by any chance using Wayland? Have you tried using xf86-input-evdev for xorg server? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg#Input_devices You'll need to explicitly make compositor run on XOrg server rather than Wayland and configure XOrg setting to not use libinput so that you can leverage the xf86-input-evdev which may support the touch interface. I've not tested this however.
  10. I would have to disagree on that, it's gotten noticeably slower than Windows 7 in general, because of additional software running including Cortana and on top of that their start menu search engine doesn't even detect installed software while Windows 7 could. There are plenty of reasons why anyone would want to rollback from Windows 10.
  11. I'm not that familiar with Windows 10 S Mode, but do you think it may have something to do with this? It is specifically made to lock down Windows 10 Pro into Windows Store App only instead of allowing users to run any Exe program. The Verge source on Windows 10 S Mode It is only going to be more frustrating for customers who see "Windows 10 Pro" being included with the device like the screenshot above that they're buying to find out that it cannot open Exe files and they have to shell out another $50 to unlock it or install Linux.
  12. It seems that Node.js is working properly, it just that your blockchain program is throwing an error. I would backtrack module.js:540 and upward to investigate why it's throwing the exception. I don't do programming with Node.js however.
  13. It would be included as one of the option in NodeJS installer, I've included the screenshot to highlight this.
