    question about SSD's, HDD and MB controllers

    In the real world, SSD and NVMe is negligible. Sure, NVMe has faster writes, BUT unless you are using that 24/7, it doesn't matter ALL that much.
  4. You can now use Microsoft Edge Canary to open pages in Internet Explorer by Rich Woods At Build this year, Microsoft announced IE Mode, which will open IE-only sites in an IE tab within the Edge browser. As spotted by Techdows, there's now a flag that you can activate in Edge Canary to turn on Internet Explorer integration. While the flag is present in the latest Edge Dev build, it only seems to work in Edge Canary 77.0.200.0 and above. If you head over to edge://flags and search for 'Enable IE Integration', you can set it to Enable. This will add a 'Show this page using Internet Explorer' option to the 'More tools' section of the menu. At this time, it only launches IE with the page you're trying to open, rather than including it in a tab within Edge. However, it seems to attempt opening it within Edge, displaying a message that your version of IE doesn't support IE mode yet, and that it needs to be updated. Presumably, Microsoft will release an update for Internet Explorer to support the feature, and the ability to open the page in a separate window will be there for anyone running an older version of the browser.

    question about SSD's, HDD and MB controllers

    Comparison video for speed difference: Very little difference in NVMe and SSD.
  6. Man, here's hoping. I don't know why, but I've still got this glimmer of hope for this somewhere inside me. I actually liked what I saw of some of the dual screen concepts. It looks like someone just needed to realize the potential with them, but instead some people got high and decided we needed foldable screens first... I think the technology just isn't there yet for foldables, and this is just in general. Not any one specific company. Sadly, we have to go through these Gen 1 devices, which will be crap compared to 5-10 years from now. It will be like the Gordon Gecko phone compared to smartphones now.

  8. I still prefer the original concept for windows longhorn
  9. Feel like Nokia dropped the ball in a bigger way than Microsoft, they were far and away the number one seller of phones at the time, the N95 had better specs and a better camera than the iphone and was released before it, but they didn't see the potential of touchscreens or a decent app store. By the time Microsoft bought them the race was over.
  10. Thanks for the tip! I've been waiting for FH3 Blizzard Mountain and Hot Wheels DLC to go on sale again. Just purchase Blizzard Mountain, thanks to the tip. Now I only hope I don't miss the next Hot Wheels sale.

    VMWare VM of Lubuntu 18.04 problem with tools

    I think @BudMan would be better at this. But I did read this: https://www.unixarena.com/2014/05/disable-control-alt-delete-vmware-linux-guests.html/
  12. Today
  13. I can already control my GE Profile oven from Google Home. I can set the oven (bake, convection bake, warm, proof, etc.), check it's status, turn it off, set and control timers. And it cost less than $2K.
  14. I have had an occasion where Google removed an app from my phone because it was deemed to be unsafe.....after the fact. grrrr.

    Server Advice

    There is nothing difficult about it and it is easy. It is the over compensating for a click click next process that is difficult. Sometimes you have to go with the flow. Also reading screens is helpful at times. I don’t know it has been a long while since I setup an ad controller, not sure if I can remember the process, I may actually have to read the screens to make sure it doesn’t get hosed. You should also know a dc can’t be a dhcp’d client, it can host dhcp, it doesn’t have to, but it does need a static address...but an error should come up stating that. Making it a member server also makes it a little easier vs trying to go to a dc right out of the box. Second Out of the box dc really needs dns set up prior, seems to like it much better (less errors) if it has sync’d with the existing ad environment first. If I remember, it saved the reboot causing you to add it to the domain prior to promoting. Not really the Microsoft approved way or trained on way for their certification path.

  17. Exactly why I don't play around with any apps/games! Sure, I do have an Android phone, and know it spy's on me, but I do try to limit it as much as possible.
  18. Google doesn't care as long as those apps display their ads for them.
  19. Or use your brain and stay away from shady apps.... There are anti-malware apps, also. There is malware on every platform. There is, some platforms more than others. Google's quest to keep the platform more open just leaves more room for hackers to play with. Double-edged sword. On the opposite end, Apple deals with the same issue. A bit more strict with gives appearances (if it's not the reality) that it's more secure. However, the lack of openness then turns away some users. There is a bit of common-sense when it comes to both platforms that will help anyone. Our biggest issue in security today are people. It's not hackers. We do a poor job on educating people on the scams that are out there (among a great deal of other things). I wish common security practices were a basic course in schools. You can cover a great many deal of do's and don'ts in 10-15 minutes - and that in itself can save a lot of people time and money.
  20. Wonder how many cities Russia and China leveled with nukes. Also kind of curious to know the number of illegal wars they have going on right now. How many coups? How many military bases? How many civilian deaths? How many brainwashed fools spouting propaganda... Now don't get me wrong, China is no saint but to think the US is the good guy here is just crazy, they are just as bad, the only real difference is that China is more up front about what it does whereas the US is more sneaking in trying to pretend to be the good guy but a lot of it's actions are anything but good. Don't get me wrong, I don't like a lot of actions that the Chinese government does but to think the US doesn't do a lot of ###### around the world is only for the people that have blinkers on their eyes. That was the point I was trying to make. We aren't saints, so just flat out calling someone evil kind of implies that you think we are good or benevolent. Outside of our propaganda curtain, we are rarely seen as the good guys. Good guys don't stage illegal wars. They don't need false flag attacks. It's just not a thing they do. If you believe otherwise you probably steeped a bit too long in the Kool-Aid. See, at least we can agree on this. I guess from my view, those calling out countries like China or Russia know that their own government isn't perfect (far from it). In fact, I've never met a person on the western hemisphere who loves their government, aside from Canadians perhaps (lovely country). So the implication that aka2k was saying the US is some sort of sainthood was a bit of a stretch to me, especially without knowing his nationality. For example, just ask many Vietnamese how they feel about China and you might get a similar response. This is exactly the reason why you don't speak for someone else. Notice my comment was full of questions. That was intentional. My goal was to figure out why he/she believes China is "pure evil". People who use statements like that are usually misguided. You went full meltdow-defensive mode, and quite honestly that's a bad sign. Not looking to engage with that kind of mentality (not over the net anyway). I'm glad you chose to agree with me on something, but it's not a requirement. Everything that's been written is purely because you made a poor assumption that he implied the US is good. Again, ask any other Asian country what they think of China. Go ask the literal millions in Hong Kong protesting over extradition to China. At the end of the day, you've said nothing other than to agree with aka2k's statement, whilst trying to include other countries to your definition of what is evil. If that's the best argument you can make for China not being evil, then you've wasted your time here. We're well aware that other evils exist in the world. Just like you choosing to donate to a cause like poverty or scientific research, we all pick a battle to fight. Again, you seem to think that I care what your point of view is. Wasn't talking to you, don't care what you think. How many ways do you need me to say this? You are not relevant here, I didn't engage in your stupidy for a reason. Move along. No, you just pulled a bunch of crap out your bum, then turn away when someone calls you out on it. It's not my opinion that you made an assumption, that's just a fact. If you don't care to engage, it's as simple as not posting. Try it sometime before you "engage in stupidy" as you put it. Stubborn and stupid. Why don't you go make some more excuses for atrocities? Seems you're good at it. Your first response to me was enough for me to know what kind of idiot I was dealing with. It's hilarious that when I pointed out the wrongs that we do your first reaction was to make excuses. The "they do it too" line was something I'd expect from a child (obviously what you are). What actually has me curious is how exactly did you expect anyone to engage in a meaningful conversation with you after your first response. Lobbing ad-hominem attacks and all that jazz. Perhaps you should spend more time learning social skills and leave the geopolitics alone. Good day. Oh look, more insults while you talk about "social skills". lol, grow up kid. @redfish, it's completely sad that people are ignoring all of that too. At best, the only arguments made here are that the "US is not good", a point which no one argued against. We all know the US government isn't good, that's what we debate in and out each day. Still, it's better than many others, especially when people come here to escape conflict. Hell, the whole argument against the Trump administration is that he's denying people their pursuit of freedom by stopping illegal immigration to the US. So, did you actually expect to have a conversation or just derail the conversation? You know, because this is a very common tactic among people like you. Your entire response to me was just a strawman. You should send your resume to the CIA, you'd fit right in. Followed the manual to the letter. Good boy. Again, nobody was talking about the US as if they were a saint, and you did it with so much ambiguity that it literally took someone else to explain your position better than you could. Now you're just mad regurgitating words like "straw man" when the best thing you've done thus far is argue that other countries are evil as if that means China is less evil. You also have discounted any mention of the evil things China has done, trying to frame the argument about the US. See where the derailing begins here? If you want to talk US politics, then yeah man, we can sit and talk about government corruption, NSA/CIA oversteps, financial overspending, and the works, but none of that has anything to do with China, nor does it mean that we can't be against both at the same time. Mad? No, you did staw-man my position. None of the BS you said applies to me at all. So how could I possibly defend a position I never had to begin with? So again, did you actually intend on having a conversation or just derail it? Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck... Breath smells of leather and shoe polish...
  21. HP Elitebook 840 G3, 8GB RAM, i5, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10 1903, running VMWare Workstation Player 15.1.0 build-13591040 (most current) Guest: Lubuntu 18.04 amd64 allocated 4GB and 100GB of disk, shared folders enabled and working. Problem is simple- I cannot get it to share the cursor with the host- I have to hit ctrl-alt to get my cursor back in the host. I have tried both open-vm-tools and the vmware-tools-distrib to no luck. I also cannot share the clipboard (is that available in player, or does that need full Workstation?) Suggestions appreciated!!!

  24. Google beta tests offline saving option for third-party files on Drive by Jay Bonggolto Google is expanding the offline saving capability of its Drive cloud storage service, at least for G Suite organizations for now. The search giant has started beta testing a new feature of Drive that allows you to save non-Google files like PDFs, images, and Microsoft Office documents offline for later use when an internet connection becomes spotty, for example. It should be noted that Drive already provides this option for Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files. With the latest beta feature, you can take all your files with you and access them on the fly even without connecting to the web, which is often a requirement for opening files stored in the cloud. Applications for the beta program are currently ongoing and eligible users can use it only when they're using Drive on Chrome. However, the feature does not currently work on Chrome OS, though Google says it's working to change that in the future. To get started with the new feature, simply enable the offline option in the Drive or Docs settings and sign in to your account associated with your G Suite organization. You'll then be able to access the Drive File Stream and mark the non-Google files for offline availability.
