    Netflix is testing new human-curated 'Collections' feature

    You managed to fit in every cliche available into one super long sentence. Well done!
  5. It is the 1st gen..and it's a prototype it's far from perfect
  6. I see a lot of practical uses...mini tablet , and it's your same phone device. all your files are in the same physical device.| Not everyone uses their phone for social media. Some of use use it for work and / or our own business
  7. Today
  8. I don't care much for the indie games besides super meat boy, shovel Knight, bit trip runner 1->3 and this one. It's a great puzzle/labyrinth game.

    Edge won't let you read ePub e-books anymore

    Chrome adblock extensions not working is the only thing keeping me away from switching to the new edge
  10. The mirror function could be neat on the go with my surface. Other than that Android isn't reliable as a desktop. Crashes, multitasking, ram overuse... A 4gb windows machine is more reliable. In office for example, even after a crash or a restart your files are either autosaved or autosynced. No such thing on Android. Same with emails, sucks to lose a big chunk of text in case of os unreliability. Windows phone continuum was the solution that would have become ultimately the best, especially given how windows on arm works today. Full blown windows stability on arm!! Could easily be implemented in a smartphone today.
  11. Yesterday
  12. Cant be any worse than an orange haired orangutan. Well, technically, the previous one was a genocide, he bombarded a hospital, killing civilians, kids, and innocents, TWICE. Luckily, he never used nukes. So, it's funny how people call the ORANGE MAN BAD a danger without any proof (feelings are not proof). Classic look-over-there-ism I dunno man, if a Trump supporter said that to you when you were trying to make criticisms of Trump, I'd say that's a pretty weak ass argument.

    To build or buy a new PC? [UK]*

    Okay. Well. Good luck. Hope you get help with the problem you have without telling anyone what it actually is.
  14. If you need more addresses, you need more address - I would prob look to just using a lower lease time if you have a bunch of devices temp jumping on some guest network.. First thing I would do is isolate your wifi to its own segment.. You could give it a /16 if you have so many devices jumping on and off, etc. What it does for its address space doesn't effect your actual network once you segment it off. Why do you not want control of your devices either at a logical level or a security level.. Types of devices for sure should be on their own segment.. Lets say your printer was compromised. https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/08/microsoft-catches-russian-state-hackers-using-iot-devices-to-breach-networks/ Why should your printers be able to talk to anything on your network? The communication from users/servers to printers should be 1 way.. You accomplish this via putting your printers (and any other iot devices) on their own segments.. And then via your firewall not allowing them to create unsolicated traffic to anything else on your network - unless its actually required.. say dns, or some server to check for files it printers - maybe a log server, etc. Are you running private vlans? If your just on 1 big L2 - then any device can talk to any other device on any port.. So idiot user #1 gets his box infected - how do you stop it from taking to everything else on your network? There are many different methods of segmenting out your network best depending on a companies needs and use cases, etc. But segmentation gives you ability to control connectivity outside user permissions and host firewalls. Allows you to contain any sort of outbreak of the next wanna cry worm - or whatever the next ransomware thing might be.. There is one thing to limit a users account to only what it needs access to... But there are many devices that have zero reason to even talk to say a server, or other user devices. Be it they have a valid account or not - if they can talk to the service, it could be exploited via some zero day or unpatched issue, etc.. I personally would take the opportunity of needing more address space to rethink your whole network layout and provide for isolation.. The very act of segmenting your different devices will give you way more flexibility in growing address space for a specific segment..
  15. I love these things, I would love to use this in my kitchen.

    To build or buy a new PC? [UK]*

    I disagree. What i would like and what i need are two completely different things. Like with the car for example. Nobody 'needs' a fast car, they want it. If you need a car to get from A-B then the cheapest option does the job right because the speed limit is the speed limit right? My TV for another example. In the end i went for 58". I didn't need a 58" TV that cost me about £1100-£1200 off the top of my head. I could've saved myself close to £1000 and still got a reasonable sized TV which would've still allowed me to watch things on. I went for the one i went for because that was the one i wanted. Would a £300 40" TV have covered what i needed - to watch TV, DVDs, play consoles on etc? Of course it would've. I didn't want that though. Sure i went overkill for my needs but so what? I don't drink, i don't smoke, i can afford to spend it where i want to spend it. Also, i am not 'sending out' anyone. I am grateful for anyone who spends the time doing that of course, but i am sending nobody out. It is a general question. Building and buying a similar spec PC, from peoples experiences, which is better/cheaper/advisable. I'm asking those with years of experience in this to comment on which approach they'd recommend, not to actually build me a PC. That will come later when i get round to it. Most of my use is emails, browsing, YouTube watching sure. So you'll now tell me i don't need a graphics card but like i said i don't need a 58" TV either. I'm also currently using Handbrake to save on storage space with the movies i'm ripping and my current CPU is struggling with it ... that's one task beyond the standard emails and browsing. I also said i wont rule out playing games on the PC. You ask what games, well i don't know. I didn't know when i built my existing PC, i just bought a graphics card that at the time was supposed to handle a good amount of games that were out there at that point, so that if i decided to buy something then my PC could run it.
  17. Well if you have a better suggestion on the subnet I should use I am all ears, with the static devices, wireless clients, etc, our DHCP range is running out of IPs and everything I've read Superscopes are not really recommended. I don't really want to get down into VLANs or separating buildings/floors. I can give you more details on the setup as well if necessary.
  18. Yeah so what if they share.. Being on multiple segments has nothing to do with with accessing a printer or a file share. If your to the point that your thinking of using a /21 because of addresses needed.. Buildings, shoot even floors in the same building should be on their own segments.. If you have only 89 systems, what is the point of a /21? Your wireless for damn sure should be on its own segment!!!
  19. Well let me rephrase it. These are buildings all on a single campus, next to or across from each other. Each building has just a few computers, some have 4, some have 15. For a total of about 89 systems. We are currently running Unifi APs with a guest network which are isolated and we see a lot of temp connections throughout the day from ipads, cell phones, apple watches, etc taking up a lot of address space. I don't really want to segment the buildings from each other as they do share resources, printers, servers between each other. My biggest concern is the order at which the resubnetting has to be done.
  20. That is great and all that your all connected via DWDM... But I really wouldn't suggest 1 flat network.. This gives you way less control if you need to do anything specific, etc. I would plan out your address space so each site can have plenty of space and ability to segment as well for isolation of different classes of devices and or users, etc.
  21. Hey guys, Current setup - 172.16.50.0/24 with a superscope handing out address say 172.16.50.100 to 150 and 172.16.51.100 to 150 I have multiple sites connected via dark-fiber and am looking at moving to 172.16.50.0/21 which will give usable addresses of - 172.16.48.1 - 172.16.55.254. All of my static assigned clients are reservations and I can work with Server 2016 DHCP to reconfigure that or re-make the entire scope if I have to do it manually. My main concern is, my core router and switches, can I set them manually as I move through this process to the new subnet or do I have to do all of this at once to ensure connectivity? All of the clients will reside within 172.16.50.0/24 until I have those devices totally changed. I assume since that range falls within the new subnet as well everything should still be able to talk. Any suggestions or input would be great.

    Netflix is testing new human-curated 'Collections' feature

    How about testing 4K disk rentals instead... I mean wth. 4K streaming of movies when the disks are available as well not one or the other.

    Leave it to someone to bring politics into a non-political thread. It’s getting old.

    Netflix is testing new human-curated 'Collections' feature

    Cool, maybe they can curate a list of fun mindless TV shows that don't push the left wing liberal "woke" BS on every single show whenever and wherever they can because that's what all their liberal friends in the media are doing and they have to one up them at the expense of making TV shows without ######ing politics in it, shows that appeal to everyone and anyone and not just a bunch of middle class virtue signalling tossers?
