    IIRC Lastpass limited their free tier significantly a little while ago (like, either only mobile or only desktop, not both). Don't blame LMG for dropping them.

    I see a SYNTAX error, thats what I see. Put quotations around the entire directory. Also, how'd you get cmd and Windows to look like that?

    AbydosOne got a reaction from Radium_Angel in What does this means?   
    It's 255, minus [drive letter][colon][backslash], so 252 in normal local file cases.

    It's actually possible to exceed this in Win10 now by enabling long paths.

    Expectation: wider viewing angles for more immersive experience in movies/games.
    Reality: you can have two 8:3 windows side-by-side (assuming it is a 21:9).

    AbydosOne reacted to camjocotem in 10Gb - 40Gb NICs for between $25 - $50 (Not inc delivery)   
    Disclaimer: All credit goes to my friend Maz0r, he's the one who found out about the project and did the hard work.
     
    So providing I understand everything correctly...
     
    The jist of it is old enterprise HP server 10Gb/40Gb NICs are getting sold on ebay for dirt cheap?
     
    Why cheap?
     
    Because they have a proprietary connector FlexibleLOM or FlexLOM and so would only fit HP Server boards.
    However the 'proprietary' part is a little misleading as it's actually still PCIe technology but the pins are shifted!
    They're also mostly refurbs.
     
    This means that it was possible to develop a FlexLOM-Adapter
    On the project page they list particular NICs that they support( I personally got the 561FLR-T):
    FlexibleLOM NIC Model Connectors v1.0 v1.1 331FLR Broadcom BCM5719 Quad RJ45 GbE ❌ ✔ 366FLR intel i350 Quad RJ45 GbE ✔ ✔ CX3 ALOM Mellanox ConnectX-3 Single SFP+ 10GbE ✔ ✔ 530FLR-SFP+ Broadcom BCM57810S Dual SFP+ 10GbE ❌ ✔ 544FLR-QSFP Mellanox ConnectX-3 Dual QSFP+ 40GbE ✔ ✔ 544+FLR-QSFP Mellanox ConnectX-3 Pro Dual QSFP+ 40GbE ✔ ✔ 560FLR-SFP+ intel 82599 Dual SFP+ 10GbE ✔ ✔ 561FLR-T intel X540 Dual RJ45 10GbE ✔ ✔  
    Now the first card my friend went to install did end up shorting his mobo + GPU (RIP GPU 😢 )
    But the following 3 were fine after he added the small tabs around the screws where you would screw it in to hold it in place.
    I've attached screenshots of the cards registering fine on windows.
    UPDATE: The card is quite tall and wasn't screwed into the case, plugging a cable in was enough pressure to rotate the card within the slot causing the short
    If getting one these cards be sure to fasten it to the case and it should be fine (like you would any other PCIe device)
     
    My only uncertainty in this is that my second x16 PCIe slot can only have a max of x4 speeds which should in theory be enough for 10Gb ethernet though the adapter states it wants x8 so I'll be crossing my fingers for that part I guess.
    If I end up buying a new mobo that already has 10Gb onboard I'll probably be selling one or two on the cheap or handing them back to friendo.

    TLDR; I bought 3 10Gb NICs from my friend for £29 each for the card + adapter, also I paid him a bit extra for his time soldering :]
     
    Edit: Clarification based on question; the adapter has 2 parts that need soldering together, the main adapter card and the FlexLOM connector:

    AbydosOne reacted to michaelsoft in Aukey products removed from Amazon   
    Summary
    The Amazon pages for most Aukey products have been removed without warning. A statement published by Amazon mentions genuine reviews, hinting that Aukey may have been offering compensation for positive reviews, which is against the platform's Terms of Service. This theory has been backed up by a few tweets claiming Aukey was offering up to $100 USD for a 5 star review. If you try to navigate to Aukey's Amazon seller page, you will find that most products have been replaced with placeholders, and the products that remain accessible are marked as "Currently Unavailable"

    AbydosOne got a reaction from dkluvzsd in Mobo Usb 2.0 to monitor?   
    There are AMD APUs with arguably better graphics performance than Intel iGPUs (especially pre-Xe). I've been eyeing a R5-4650G for a while (just need to find a purpose for it lol).

    Also, look at DisplayPort Mulit-steam. Depending on the monitor resolutions, you can run two or three displays off one DP.

    Not directly. There exist adapters, but USB 2.0 will really limit how well they work (better on 3.0).

    AbydosOne reacted to Den-Fi in M.2 to SATA adapters   
    That's not going to work considering NVMe drives communicate over a different protocol than SATA.
    You have M.2 slots that support NVMe and SATA, but adapters tend not to work that way.
