  1. I can't really recommend Ubuntu either. I'd seriously go with ye ol' Debian and a nice KDE Plasma DE. It's super stable, lightweight and you can customise the shit out of it. Also Deb11:Bullseye looks gorgeous out of the box. Meanwhile, Linux isn't what it used to be and even the basic OS can be navigated entirely without opening the terminal. Although, trust me, once you start using Linux, you will want to learn how to use it, because it's super efficient and you'll feel like the most bad-ass hacker!

    SSH vs HTTPS

    Hey guys! I handled my cloud stuff over SSHFS so far which was very nice, fluent and stable. Recently, in order to let some friends use it as well, I set up a nextcloud-server which is used mostly over the web-page, sometimes over webDAV. Now I wonder whether the encryption is good enough. I've read SSH is secure a.f. using keys, but I can't seem to grasp the level of security up/downloading something just over HTTPS has. Which information is sent? Is it personal data? How about the content of the download? Is any middle-man able to read what data has been transfered?
  3. Hey LTT-Crew! Nowadays there are many Cloud Gaming platforms. Being blessed with an old but still strong computer, I want to assume those possible comforts in my home. My setup is my PC (debian bullseye) and a Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB) connected via (m)HDMI to my TV. Both are wired up in 1Gbit. What I'm trying to do is to stream Games from my PC to the RPI4, i.e. to the TV. I know the RPI is capable of playing 4k videos, so I thought a 1080p game can't be too hard when the PC does the calculations. The road so far: - RDP -> Works better than expected,
  4. I used to pirate a lot of games when I were a student and couldn't effort them. Now, I still do it occasionally, for retro-games and actually just demos... To any single gamer, most games are shit, but which are to whom differs. I'd say piracy would drop to some degree if games came with demos again. I'm saying again because I remember having demo-cds in some Computer-Magazines. So there's Baldur's Gate 3 on Steam now... 60 bucks, standard price for an average title. But it's still under development having only released part 1 and is full of bugs yet. 60 bucks for that now
  5. I'm gonna make a very provocative statement here... You can do everything with (maybe almost) every coding language... But..(!).. There are advantages and disadvantages. C/C++ are better in terms of efficiency. You can push that to branchless coding and performance will be king. Now, if you aren't in a big tech company where you have to be efficient so save power and server usage, you can basically skip python and go over to bash I feel like python is an engineer's language. It works, it's fast, it's convenient. As for concepts, I'll recommend what I recommend in s
  6. As for Websites, with HTML, PHP, CSS and JS you know everything there is to know. Now when it comes to learning a language for a job, Python is your way to go. It's super easy to use and there's a library for everything. And I mean f**king everything! To me, a C/C++ Programmer, coding in Python feels like cheating If you're up for efficiency though, C/C++ are your friends. Python is for unlimited CPU, imho.
  7. Then sshfs is your savior. It uses SSH as a method to transfer data while mapping the whole directory structure. It's like samba, but plain better in stability, speed and security. Exchange SSH-Keys with on both PCs if you want to mount drives to each other and install sshfs. ssh-keygen ssh-copy-id $USER@ip.of.your.pc sudo apt-get install sshfs -y You could mount the drive via terminal, but for convenience, it's better to do it automatically via the fstab. I'll post the switches I use and work seamlessly for me, should be fine for you as well. sudo nano /etc/fstab
  8. I just neatly ordered my SNES-Games on my Desktop I'm free for another month and it's going to be an amazing adventure! Thanks for you post then, because I'm definitely having a look at crosscode! A little question aside: I've never played Chrono Trigger. Which version (SNES/PSX/NDS) would you recommend?
  9. So I kinda hate to be that guy that doesn't tell you how to solve your problem the way you want it but in another way: Have you thought about just using sshfs? As I tinkered with samba, I had all kinds of problems; mainly how it handles high I/O and the permissions-config can get tricky. In addition, it's faster and well encrypted, can rely on keys instead of passwords and has the advantage for you to be able to access your drives from remote without using a VPN. I'd recommend you look into it! For windows, you'll need to install the openssh-client/server and SSHFS as well as WinFS
  10. Hey ya! I've recently started med school and most of the people here suck at physics class So I figured I'd help some of them via Discord or Teams or whatever. Thing is: I don't have a tablet to draw / write physics-stuff on. BUT! I have a good old whiteboard! And the good old HD3000 Webcam My question is: Is there a piece of software that could correct the picture before streaming it? Something that flips the picture horizontally and maybe puts the border-relations in place correctly? Thank you very much in advance! Arokan
  11. I think, I figured it out. I'll write down the answer and mark it as solved for those who come after me. The solution is as easy as genius: Don't use Samba, use SSHFS instead. When accessing own devices and user-management (Sharing distinct folders to different people) is not required, SSHFS appears to be the better option. It's a little more secure, using keys instead of passwords, and it's way faster and more stable. Just follow this Installation-Guide and you're good to go.
  12. Hey guys! I'd like you to help me with a problem I solved a long time ago, that has come up again recently and I just cannot remember how I fixed it. I have two HDDs in a LV mounted on my Raspi4 to which I connect via Samba on my Windows 10 PC. I could attach the network drive, I can move files, even watch movies over it, no problem. But when I try to assess some more demanding tasks, starting with opening programs, packing rar/7z files or giving it more than one task in general, my explorer.exe freezes completely along with other programs involved (vlc/winrar
  13. @AbydosOneOkay, got it, thank you very much!
  14. @DailyProcrastinator Thanks, watched those already but it didn't answer all my questions. @Trinopoty Okay, then I start to understand how you can lose one drive and it doesn't matter which one. But how can you set it up so you can use almost all the storage? I'm happy to learn all about it, complicated as it may be, and I'd be thankful for a link or so to a full explanation as I didn't manage to find one myself. Most are pretty superficial.
  15. Hey LTT-Community, I've been reading all I found about RAID and I'm thinking about using it in the future. However, there is something I cannot wrap my head around. When using RAID-5, it's stated that you can lose one out of tree drives before you lose any data, with two drives as storage and one drive to rebuild the array. Does it matter, which drive you lose and if so, wouldn't that be as risky? And if it doesn't matter which drive you lose, how is the storage arranged for that to be possible? Looking forward to your answers, Arokan
