    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    Cool thanks, that helps a lot!
  3. It depends. A lot of people are using CUDA for certain applications, and that's a no-no with AMD cards. Same with the new powerMac, a lot of users were disappointed it didn't came with heavy-duty NVIDIA cards. And the stubbornness of Apple for not following standards like OpenGL or Vulkan etc. makes it harder to do certain work as well.
  4. The asymmetry of the base is a red line for me lol
  5. If you haven't yet, look into a device called Genki! It lets you do that very thing. I was a Kickstarter backer, and it's worked pretty well for me! Oh you got the Genki? I wrote about the Kickstarter campaign last year but I didn't actually invest in it. How's it been? It's pretty good! Once you're set up (which doesn't take too much effort), it pretty much works as you'd expect. No issues on my end. Haven't tried the USB thing they have to let you use Bluetooth headphones while the Switch is docked, nor the little microphone thing, so I dunno about those. Only complaint I'd really have is the stand they offered as well. It feels nice, heavy, and solid, so it's really good in that regard, but the little bits you fold out to put the actual Switch on are tiny and feel not as solid. I'm not worried about the stand itself falling over or anything, but I am worried that it'll drop the Switch.

    Calm down? It was a simple series of questions. I wasn’t in the slightest riled up.

    Missing Windows Media Player context menus

    It seems you are going to switch media players, but for what it's worth have you considered formatting and re-installing the OS? I only say that because like you I still use WMP as my primary music/video player and I upgraded to the latest OS and haven't lost any of my context menu functions, so maybe your OS install got messed up somehow. Windows does annoyingly change my default video/music app after every OS upgrade, but when I change it back to WMP I've never lost any of my right-click context functions.
  8. "And of course, the display has a rotating hinge, so you can fold it down and use the pen on it. It's an awesome feature and the best use of touch/pen support on a desktop PC that I've seen." You wrote this entire article on a PC purpose-built for drawing on, and this is all you included on stylus input? That you can use a pen on it? That is the reason you buy this thing in the first place. How does the pen feel compared to the Surface Pen? How is pressure sensitivity? Resolution? Does it have tilt support in the pen? Is there an eraser? Any buttons? What is charging and battery life like? How thick is the glass above the screen (since this effects parallax)? Is this a touch screen (sounds like it, but you had some problems getting it to work, or was that just as a separate monitor)? How is palm-protection on the touch screen when using the pen? Can touch be disabled? And lastly, since it sounds like you don't regularly use a stylus, the "large" bezels are actually pretty small for a drawing surface. You don't want to get too close to the edge with your palm or the pen, so I doubt you'd want them any smaller. If you look at a Wacom Cintiq, some have 5" bezels on the sides. Even the current ones have larger bezels than this, by quite a bit. Okay, I lied, one more thing: I suspect the lights below are for keyboard/mouse illumination at night. I like that idea. The rest of the review was quite comprehensive. Other than the forgettable mouse and keyboard, the only thing that concerns me relative to the Surface Pro 2, is the video card. Creative types buy these things for image and video editing, so I wonder if that aspect may actually be inferior to the Surface Pro 2 and Cintiq Pro Studio (even with a better CPU)?

    Would be great to have if the current sanctions against Huawei fizzle out

    for just the modem they're all pretty good. I'm currently running a TP-Link modem on my network hooked to a Linksys WRT1900AC for my wifi and network storage Others may recommend something different but I'd say the top three OEMs for modems are TP-Link / Motorola / Netgear

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    I'll keep that in mind. I'm wondering if the occasional slow speed/upload through out the year is worth the cost savings? But It's easy to upgrade plans if it becomes absolutely necessary.

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    Cool thanks for the tips. Can you recommend any particular ones? Do you have any experience with a particular one or brand?

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    yeah you won't really notice the bad upload speed if you're just browsing or streaming content but if you do any kind of online gaming or even sometimes video chat you will definitely notice it

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    Ok calm down... So I looked it up 5 mpbs is the upload speed for my package. I did a cursory Google search on how much upload speed do you really need and it seems like 5 - 10 looks to be the average of what I found, for my usage needs.

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    A quick Google came up with Performance Pro 150 Mbps, 5 Mbps $89.95/mo. so it looks like you're paying for 5, the download is fine but that upload is terrible. I don't quite understand it as there is a better package for less $. https://www.cabletv.com/xfinity/internet
  16. adrynalyne

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    Even as a regular person, how can you not know when they tell you when you purchase the package? Would these be the same regular persons who do not read contracts and sign blindly?
  17. SnoopZ

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    Every regular person does or should do. As previously stated if you don't have enough upload it can affect your download speed and it then all goes pear shaped.
  18. thisdude

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    What regular person asks about upload speed? I feel like that's more in the interests for people working from home or people that upload alot (past PirateBay day lol).

    GIMP 2.10.12

    GIMP 2.10.12 by Razvan Serea GIMP is a digital photo manipulation tool for Windows (and many other platforms) that’s considered to be the open source (free) answer to Adobe Photoshop. Like Photoshop, GIMP is suitable for a variety of image manipulation tasks, including photo retouching, image composition, image construction, and has many other capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, and so much more. GIMP is amazingly expandable and extensible – it is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted. One of GIMP's strengths is its free availability from many sources for many operating systems. So, if you don’t want to pay the price for Photoshop, GIMP is definitely the app for you! GIMP features: Full suite of painting tools including Brush, Pencil, Airbrush, Clone, and more – including the support of custom brushes & patterns Extremely powerful gradient editor and blend tool Transformation tools including rotate, scale, shear, flip, and more Supports a variety of selection tools such as rectangle, rounded rectangle, ellipse, free, fuzzy, and more Supports many file formats – including bmp, gif, jpeg, mng, pcx, pdf, png, ps, psd, svg, tiff, tga, xpm, and more Advanced path tool doing bezier and polygonal selections Supports a virtually unlimited number of images open at one time Load, display, convert, and save to many different file formats Overview of changes from GIMP 2.10.0 to GIMP 2.10.2: Core Discard fonts which fail to load and popup an info dialog to allow people debug their fonts. New API to suppress updates in UI until plug-ins are done introducing changes. New API to calculate histograms in separate threads, with possible further extension to handle similar cases elsewhere in GIMP. Tool options are now properly saved and reloaded per-device at startup. Plug-ins New plug-in for importing and exporting HEIF images. Enable visibility of rasterized vector layer from PSD. Single-window screenshots in Windows fixed to correctly snap a window even when it is partly off-screen or covered by another window or when display scaling is not set to 100%. Filters New Spherize filter to wrap an image around a spherical cap New Recursive Transform filter to create Droste effect. Usability Warn users, when alpha-only painting has no effect. E.g. when target drawable doesn't have an alpha channel, or the alpha channel is locked. Make the splash texts dynamic, so they are larger on larger splashes. Mention pressing Enter to complete Foreground selection in the status bar. Make sure that clicking outside any selection prevents Rectangle Select and Ellipse Select tools from creating empty selections. Improve mouse wheel zooming behavior to keep the same point centered under the pointer even if the image is completely visible in the canvas. Add "View -> Center Image in Window" (Shift+J) as a quick way to center the image at any zoom level. Translations Updated translations: Catalan, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Ukrainian. New translation of Windows installer: Chinese (Taiwan) Build Add a --with-bug-report-url configure option allowing packagers to set the address of their own bug tracker. This address will be the one opened by the debug dialog for reporting bugs. Add a flatpak manifest for the gtk3-port branch. Remove the possibility to disable script-fu. Add a --with-icc-directory configure option to customize the color profile directory. By default, it is set to the common path /usr/share/color/icc. Documentation Updating the description of the XCF format "devel-docs/xcf.txt", for third-party readers wishing to support GIMP 2.10 XCF files. Add documentation skeletons for all enums in libgimpbase/, there is much room for improvement.

    yeah renting a router is just a rip off. Look around on Amazon, any router that states is Comcast compatible should work well for you. You'll want a DOCS 3.0 or 3.1 router and you'll be good

    Server Advice

    yeah this system seems a bit over the top if you ask me.. You have 5 users.. Really raid 6 for what amount of data? How much were those drives? They are only 1.2TB? You prob have saved money just getting SDD and doing Raid 1 if you were worried about something failing.. The box is prob way over the top cost wise for 5 people... You could prob of gotten by with some $1000 off the shelf nas to be honest... You sure don't need to be paying the MS tax for windows server licenses with 5 users.. Any NAS os would allow you to be a "domain" and central user management, without paying the ms tax..

    Can you guys recommend a good router to replace the one we rent from Comcast? It's $13 a month to rent it, $156 a year. Is it really that much of an issue? We've had a couple nights with everyone connected iphones, 2 tvs, and laptop and no issues.

    150Mbps - 400Mbps

    your down is good for paying for 150.. but up is horrible... You would think your upload would be 10.. When I paid for 75/10 plan with comcast I would normally see 80ish down and 12mbps up.. So your actually just paying for 5 or are you paying for 10 and only seeing 5?
