  1. I might be better off just building a cluster of raspberry pi 4s and using something like ZMQ to have them all communicate together. I'd have to add a third layer of management to distribute the commands but I think I could get away with having 6-8 worker bots per Pi.
  2. General question: Would I be better off just building a new system using the actual socketable CPUs rather than a co processor? I'm fine with having to SSH into them and treating them like their own computers. I have a rack that I could build a system into and just let it sit. I figured they would be different since its not like I'm adding an extra socket to a board. My main goal here is to get as many cores as I can while spending the least amount of money possible (aren't we all?) As far as heat goes, I have plenty of fans I don't mind cramming into a chassis or
  3. Hopefully this is in the right category, if not my apologies! I've been toying around with multiprocessing in Python the last few days and want to see just how far I can push some it. Currently I have a VM running Ubuntu Server that is for a Discord bot I use for testing purposes. I've broken the bot up into multiple processes so that I can process more commands at the same time (although it's unnecessary and not needed at all for its use, I just wanna have fun). In my pursuit of trying to run as many bots as I can, I remembered vaguely about the old Xeon Phi co processors for days
  4. I ended up going with the Cherry POS keyboard and I could not be happier with it. The switches are rubber domes which I actually find to be quite satisfying to press for this kind of use case. It feels super solid and the feet on it practically glue it down to whatever surface its on. The Cherry Tools software for it is pretty fantastic (although it does look fairly dated) and you can assign up to 10 key presses to each key that is stored in on board memory and as far as I can tell you assign "unlimited" if you store the assignment software side. There's also three layers of key assignments (h
  5. The first one is more like what I'm looking for, but a larger scale. Also being able to assign multi key combinations to the keys being a native feature would be stellar as well. I plan on using it for soundboards as well as keyboard shortcuts for Resolve. I took a look at the genovation pads and they looked great! Their price wasn't outrageous but again, I'm looking to spend as little as possible. I ended up pulling the trigger on the Cherry G86-6340 POS keyboard, so hopefully I don't end up regretting it too much. 142 keys for $115 US is tough to beat. From what I've read (whi
  6. I've been doing a lot more editing on my computer recently and find my self constantly navigating through menus to add various effects and such. I also have been getting into making Soundboards to use in Discord calls to spice things up a bit when needed. I currently use a G910 as my keyboard which has 3 pages of 9 macro keys. These work fine and well, but I would like to avoid cycling through pages and profiles to get access all of my keybinds. I figured I would look into getting something large with enough buttons that I wouldn't know what to do with them all, while also spending as little m
  7. I believe mine go directly downstairs. I'm on the second floor as is the room that the router and modem are in. I believe there is a panel in the garage however which is where our cable line actually comes into the house.
  8. I believe our house was build around 2008/2010 so its somewhat recent, but, I agree that its more than likely something to do with the wiring.
  9. For a while now I've had my server rack in my actual bedroom seeing as that is where my main computer is setup and I want to be hardwired on both my servers and my daily driver. However, the noise has been far too much to bear and I finally cracked and moved it into an empty bedroom across the house. This of course meant I had to move my modem and router there as well to maintain a wired connection for the server, leaving my daily driver at the mercy of WiFi. I thought about running cables through my walls and ceiling for the connection, but I also know that there are coaxial adapters exactly
  10. Not yet. The weird thing is since I posted this, I plugged in the cable again and now its only been doing it occasionally (only about twice so far). The headset is setting on the desk not moving so it's not like the cables being moved around a whole lot.
  11. Thats what I'm thinking. Like it can't be that there's too many ports, why else would they all be here? I wanna avoid dropping 27 bucks or so on a PCIE card for it, but if it comes to that it's not the end of the world.
  12. I've been experiencing an issue with the USB port on my motherboard for a few months now, but I just assumed it was the cable that I was using. I recently picked up an Oculus Link compatible USB C cable and it worked perfectly for the first day, but I am back to having the issue of the headset connecting and disconnecting in a loop for about 30 seconds or so before stopping. I originally had this issue whenever I connected my phone. I've install the drivers for the motherboard from Asus' website but the issue still remains. Could it possibly be that I have two many devices using USB ports? I h
  13. I just install an LSI 9260-8i into my home server to free up some SATA ports and clean up the wiring a bit. However, none of the drives that are connected through the SAS Controller are showing. I am using SAS to 4-SATA cables and all of the drives that are being connected are 4TB HP Midline drives. The drives show up in the controller's BIOS all with their proper capacities, but once in Windows they're nowhere to be found. I've checked device manager and the controller is listed there with the most recent drivers. What is it that I'm missing here? As always, thanks in advance guys!
  14. I pulled the trigger on the Quest last night after doing some more research. Apparently, theres a workaround way to even use the Quest over wifi so you end up with completely wireless VR, which I dont exactly expect to be perfect but it's worth at least a try. I have an extra, dual band wifi card that I could chuck into my machine and use a hotspot to handle the connection, so hopefully that serves me better than hooking up a router. I was also looking at something like this to replace the rather lackluster head strap on the Quest, although I'll have to see for myself how I like the original s
  15. Thank you so much for that break down! Lots of information, I love it It sounds like the Quest is actually the better system compared to the Rift S if you end up getting the Quest Link cable, which I wouldn't mind investing in. I wasn't aware that the resolution of the Quest was actually higher compared to the Rift S. I know its not exactly much compared to the Rift S, but if they have the same panel the higher resolution would help with SDE, correct? I wouldn't exactly be particularly interested in the mobile aspect of the Quest, but having it as a potential alternative/option just in cas
