  1. Past hour
  2. You could also just go full unifi for your router side of it... But to be honest hands down, after playing with their USG.. While sure it can do vlans, and it can do IPS and it has some slick eye candy with DPI.. overall its clunky to work with compared to something like pfsense do even basic stuff like vlans and firewall rules.. While it does have for support for vpn.. Wow is it PITA to setup vs in pfsense, etc. I just don't think your going to find a all in one sort of box to provide the feature set and coverage that someone in the field and sort of wifi devices he states is going to want.
  3. @warwagon and ThaCrip: What do either of those comments have to do with this topic? For what it's worth though, I leave my computer on during the day, in suspend mode, and shut it off when done for the day. Never leave any of them on 24/7 and never have.
  4. I would subscribe back to Netflix again if they make a cheap alternative in the US market to be play on mobile devices only.
  5. It using old style Windows 7 Control Panel Items in stead of new style Setting Panel see below photo for old style https://www.wintips.org/wp-con...ploads/2016/11/image-34.png
  6. It's a total show stopper. It might be made by the same company but it is a completely different grade of kit. I sent mine back and bought a Unifi AP. I couldn't be happier with the decision.
  7. So I was right the Amplifi still doesn't do vlans - that to me would be a show stopper!!
  8. The only part that was defective was the screen, but there is an order of magnitude difference in terms of how much control you get between Amplifi (virtually none) to Unifi (total control). Amplifi doesn't do VLANs etc. If you really want control, then Amplifi doesn't offer any more than any other consumer grade router.

    AIMP 4.60 RC1 Build 2137

    AIMP 4.60 RC1 Build 2137 by Razvan Serea AIMP is a powerful audio player that allows you to listen to your favorite music with an outstanding sound quality. Its appearance resembles that of another classical audio player (Winamp). The program includes a 18-band equalizer, a visualization window to display rhythmic visual effects and a playlist editor to organize your audio files. A nice fading effect makes your list of songs look like an endless music loop and a handy volume normalizing feature avoids drastic volume changes between tracks. Also, the players main functions can be conveniently controlled by global hotkeys. Besides playing music, AIMP features three extra utilities which also enable you to record any sound on your computer, convert audio files from one format to another and view or edit tags. AIMP is based on the well-known audio engine BASS, so its easy to connect new plug-ins (from the plug-in library included in the program) and expand the players functionality. AIMP 4.60 RC1 Build 2137 changelog: General: glyphs for secondary windows has been updated General: an ability to switch on/off night mode manually Skin engine: an ability to specify custom hotkey to toggle visibility of secondary windows Playlist: support for IPTV extensions for M3U/M3U8 playlists formats Plugins: inputFFmpeg plugin has been replaced by BASSWebM Fixed: general - few small issues related to the "night mode" feature Fixed: internet radio - tracks meta of HTTP-Live streams updates incorrectly Fixed: plugins - last.fm - some links has not been localized in the "Information about the file" dialog Download: AIMP 4.60 RC1 Build 2137 | 10.1 MB (Freeware) View: AIMP Website Get alerted to all of our Software updates on Twitter at @NeowinSoftware
  10. That is a pretty decent budget... What exactly are you running now for your networking gear? Router and Switches, etc. You mention you do cybersecurity... So your switch(es) are currently vlan capable? How large is your house? Or how large of area do you want to cover with wifi? Could for sure put together a suggest list of hardware that falls under that budget.. If I assume you have switches already that can at min do vlans.. Something like this would uplift your whole network and wifi - items in list could be altered depending on what you are currently working with. And could be modified if you can not run wire for best AP locations and just need/want to run mesh setup (wireless uplinks between AP) number needed, etc. etc.. But from the hip with that budget. SG3100 350$ UAP-AC-Pro $135 UCK-G2 $180 Total = $665 If you have a box to run the unifi controller software, you could forget the UCK, or go with gen 1 version, half the cost of gen2. If you need more AP you could go with lite version, or drop the router to sg1100, which is only $160.. Or you could go with the UAP-NANOHD $170 for a better AP and still be at your $700 budget. We could for sure throw in a $40 8 port gig smart switch and your still at your 700 budget mark. Lots of choices with that sort of budget for a complete uplift for sure.. links https://www.netgate.com/solutions/pfsense/sg-3100.html https://www.ui.com/unifi/unifi-ap-ac-pro/ https://unifi-protect.ui.com/cloud-key-gen2 cheaper plan with more AP SG1100 $160 UAP-AC-Lite 3 of them $240 UC-CK $100 Total = $500 edit: Unless something has recently changed the amplifi stuff doesn't do vlans... To me that would be a show stopper, and anyone doing IT work I would think so too! That might be ok for billy bob the home user.. But he says he does security.. edit2: If you have more money to spend we could get a little crazy SG5100 or 7100 if you want/need 10g UAP-AC-SHD, which does WIPS and has airtime and airview which provides some really slick info.

    Google tells Senate that Project Dragonfly is dead

    I don’t know where this treason nonsense comes from, but Microsoft has a censored Bing for China. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-46996874" rel="external nofollow">https://www.bbc.com/news/business-46996874" rel="external nofollow">https://www.bbc.com/news/business-46996874" rel="external nofollow">https://www.bbc.com/news/business-46996874" rel="external nofollow">https://www.bbc.com/news/business-46996874 Because people thought google was working for the Chinese military/gov and not for the US gov. More paranoia or people not knowing what they are talking about or can backup their claims with actual proof. It's probably because Google refused to do a deal with the US Military but worked with China (which the Chinese Government is essentially the military). That's where the treason comes in. Google didn't really refuse. They were working with the US military. Project Maven was canceled because Google caved to their employee demands. So what you're really saying is "Google didn't really refuse..... they only refused because of the loser SJW employees.... who have no problem with China's REAL human rights issues but like to be SJW's for non-existent issues in the USA.
  12. +1 for AmpliFi HD, Fahim S. sounds like you just got a defective unit.

    OPPO Reno 10x Zoom review: Jack of all trades, master of some

    Reminds me of my old Nokia 1520. It has wireless charging. But AT&T decided it would have a proprietary charging plate that was only sold by them. Man, I loved that phone. that phone was massive. I don't think I know anyone that owned it

    OPPO Reno 10x Zoom review: Jack of all trades, master of some

    I hope you'll be saying this ten years from now, clinging on to your beloved LG V20
  16. Today
  17. Wasn't impressed with Amplifi. I ran it for a while. The unit arrived not working 100% (screen not working) and the performance wasn't an improvement over a regular router updated with decent firmware such as DD-WRT.
  18. Genuinely do not comprehend the dislike for emoji. They are simple iconic shorthand that transcends linguistic differences.

  20. Microsoft demos new ElectionGuard voting system, plans to pilot the tech next year by Hamza Jawad Last month, Microsoft launched a new service, Microsoft 365 for Campaigns, as part of its Defending Democracy Program. The tech giant had also simultaneously been working on developing a new voting system to work in conjunction with the aforementioned service, and others, in order to protect institutions and electoral processes in democratic countries. Now, Microsoft has initiated the first demonstration for its voting system, the ElectionGuard, at the Aspren Security Forum. The demo, built using a Microsoft Surface tablet in kiosk mode and an Xbox Adaptive Controller for optional usage, is aimed toward showing how a secure, affordable system that assists people will disabilities can be utilized. Over the past year, through its AccountGuard program, the Redmond giant has discovered evidence of attacks on democratic organizations. 95% of 781 nation-state attacks uncovered through this program were found to have been targeting U.S. organizations. For this reason, Microsoft believes that NGOs, political campaigns, and election systems need to be protected heading into the 2020 U.S. presidential election. This is where ElectionGuard comes in, designed specifically to combat cyberthreats while remaining compatible with existing voting systems. Three core features are being showcased as part of the demo, the first of which is the ability to vote directly using the tablet touch screen or the Xbox Adaptive Controller, helping it make easier for people with disabilities to vote as well. Moving on, people who use the demoed version are being given a tracking code to verify that their vote has been counted, and not altered. This is noted as a 'key feature' of ElectionGuard, made possible through homomorphic encryption, an idea pioneered for election systems by Microsoft Research. Lastly, end-to-end verifiability will also be showcased, with voters being provided a physical record of their votes that can be checked by placing them into a physical ballot box. Only a few of its overall capabilities are being demonstrated for now. The final SDK will include features such as Risk Limiting Audits to compare ballots with ballot counts as well. Microsoft has also announced new partnerships with two leading voting tech vendors, namely Smartmatic and Clear Ballot. The tech giant is also teaming up with Columbia university's professors, who will help in piloting the new voting system in the U.S. 2020 elections. ElectionGuard is free and open-source, and will be made available later this summer through GitHub as an SDK.

  22. Unpopular opinion but.. that game was only good in its time. Game is straight up miserable to play today (tried it), and the "remake" was also terrible. Most N64 games haven't aged well in my opinion, Snes games are timeless and still hold their own today. GameCube games look fantastic upscaled on Emulators. I always feel the N64 is in that weird middle position of just not ageing that well, even compared to the PlayStation.

  24. Depends on how much it is, but I'd say if you haven't done the Xbox Game Pass yet, do the trial and give it a go. It's a decent game, but I haven't played in the past few months when they added a whole slew of new content. I will say as someone who thought I'd never play games like this, I was pleasantly surprised. Plays smooth and unlike anything else I played really. https://www.seaofthieves.com/buy Edit: Oh, and you can play solo or duo as well. Duo is a lot more fun at least, imo. Thanks, not sure I'll benefit from game pass on PC. Don't really have gamer friends so I'd be playing with my brother
  25. I still don't get the point of these. I hope it's a fad that dies off and we can make fun of someday, like VH-1's I Love the 2020s. "Hey, remember emojis? Weren't those the stupidest thing?"
  26. Pretty cool that all the chromium browsers will soon support this.
