Looking for a distro to dual boot with Win 11
  • Someone just told me about ventoy and how it's great for dual booting but I haven't looked it up to see if it's a usb only thing or what.

    Also PopOS is pretty cool for a OS to try, it's what I'm about to setup on my dual boot machine since its been recommended for gaming

  • Then he redemptioned all over john
  • Yeah I know what you mean, after I finished the game I felt like something was missing, I can't believe I didn't listen to my friends and brother to play the game while they were going through it haha

  • Netflix Windows app is set to remove its downloads feature, while introducing ads
  • I setup overseerr to auto add users added to my plex server and auto approve anything they request or add to their watch list, they just need to login once to my overseerr for their plex account to be linked after that as long as they have the online media thing enabled that is enabled by default they can just search for anything through plex and add it to their watch list and overseerr will auto add it to the arrs and begin the search and download. I have to get in there from time to time to manually do shows that are low quality or in a different language some times but other than that it's all automated, you can even setup another tool that auto deletes things after a certain time so you can manage your storage easier

  • Netflix Windows app is set to remove its downloads feature, while introducing ads
  • You can make it all automated with overseerr, they just search on plex and if you don't have it they add it to their watch list in the plex app, overseerr will auto add it to radarr or sonarr and start searching for it automagically

  • Lots of times the restaurants won't even have milk
  • I used to think like this in high school until I joined football and learned how much I loved water during practice, now I carry a water bottle everywhere for a swig whenever I get a slight thirst

  • local anti public transportation comment

    Saw this comment on a local news post about the mayor's state of the city address and the mayor mentioned some of the new public transportation initiatives including adding another line to the train, I was under the impression that Amtrak was a success until the rails became denationalized and corporate greed limited the railways and pushed passenger trains to the sides

    >Dear Friends, Thanks for reporting about transportation, a favorite of mine. So, as with previous editions at the mayor’s spot, what is the cost of a bus ride? train ride? Bullet Train ride? and how much of the cost will the passenger pay, and how much of it will the taxpayers pay? Dejavu all over again, Yogi. When is socialism a better transportation solution than the private sector? Why don’t our leaders follow their own experts’ advice about transport funding? They concluded “user fees” is best; but we reject that advice, and add a 1/4 cent here, and a 1/2 cent there, here, there, and everywhere, and what do we get in the end? Lousy public sector transit, where only the public sector union employees win, while the rest of us pay higher, higher, and higher gas taxes, and other taxes. Why don’t we cut spending instead of raising taxes, fees, fines, assessments, mandates, etc.? Why did we denationalize the railroads after they were nationalized during the Wilson Administration? Why did Lincoln say “no” to Gen. Granville Dodge, at the White House in 1864, when Dodge, who was later UPRR top civil engineer, told the President that the transcontinental railroad should be owned by the government. Dodge recites his interview with Lincoln in his seminal “How We Built the Transcontinental Railroad.” During the debate in 1970 on creation of the National Railroad Passenger Act (a/k/a Amtrak), advocates promised that it would be “self-sufficient in three years.” How’d that work out? By 9/11/01, taxpayers’ subsidies to Amtrak, in hundred dollar bill stacked together, reached higher than the World Trade Centers had stood. We had Amtrak, but our airport security didn’t serve us well. In 2009 Mark Derry published a letter in which I predicted that the price of a gallon of gas would rise to $10.00 to fund the bankrupt-from-conception Bullet Train. Looks like I was too optimistic. Today, I’d venture to say it will be closer to $20/gallon. History teaches us that public sector “services” come with a fatal price tag. Today’s leaders have us on the Road to Serfdom, same route taken by the USSR.

    Using OpenStreetMap to play the game in any location
    store.steampowered.com Save 10% on Infection Free Zone on Steam

    Choose any real region from the world. Choose your base of operations, then rebuild and readapt the buildings around you to create a self-sustaining settlement. Take charge of a group of survivors from your city. And when the night falls - Defend the zone from the infected!

    Save 10% on Infection Free Zone on Steam

    Pretty cool idea by using open street maps you can download the location you want and play the game there, defend your neighborhood or loot your house.

    The reviews seem decent but mention it needs a lot of tweaking as it just released on early access, like water not affecting where zombies can walk or elevation not being a thing.

    Maybe this can get some more people interested in mapping

    When the wife asks me to sell some of my old hobby stuff I haven't touched in years

    Sure it's taking up space but maybe I'll get back to it someday, plus who will buy it?

    Couch Gaming setups

    So I switch between playing games from my desk and my couch. I have a long HDMI cable that runs from my desktop to my tv. before I would use a bluetooth keyboard and a bluetooth mouse when playing from the couch with a little table or with a xbox 360 controller.

    recently we had a baby and she sleeps a bit less now but still for a few hours at a time during the day. now I feed her and she will fall asleep on me so sometimes I dont really want to move much after she falls asleep but I got pretty into farthest frontier which needs a keyboard and mouse to play. but with baby on my chest I cant really use the desk and a keyboard and mouse is kind of tough to use, the mouse likes to slide around which scrolls the view

    I started looking up solutions and ended up finding the elecom relacon trackball mouse !Elecom Relacon

    I just got it today and was playing a bit of elder scrolls oblivion with it and it works pretty well

    on my left hand I am using my quefrency split keyboard half !keebio quefrency

    which isnt bad but then I found the Azeron cyborg after going down a rabbit hole on gaming keypads like the razer tartarus and logitech g13. I watched a few youtube videos and the idea of the thumb stick sounded very good for movement so I was sold on the azeron. Im excited to try it and believe that is the best to use for my left hand. !azeron cyborg compact

    I found a promising looking gyro mouse from some guys but there hasnt been any updates on the project !Imgur

    I would like somthing like a joycon mixed with a steam touch controller but i cant find anything. is anyone using any strange gaming methods like this? that has found something that works well

    two pc's to one tv split screen?

    Does anyone know if there is a device that let's you combine two video inputs and then outputs one split screen view.

    I've read some tvs have that feature but I don't have the option on mine so maybe there is a separate device that can do it.

    The goal is to be able to play split screen the games me and the wife used to play but from the couch now that we have a baby gaming at our desk isn't really a thing anymore so I'm thinking split screen with xbox controllers would be nice

    unable to scroll

    After the latest dev update on Android, while scrolling down my feed I get stuck over a post and then I'm unable to scroll up or down or select a post. The only way to get out of it is to change the feed filter like from top six hour to top hour then that will get stuck so I have to switch back

    Built myself a 8 drive JBOD for my Unraid server

    I got sick of having a way too big server chassis in my short depth rack so decided to split my server into two short depth chassis. I put the motherboard in a sliger 17" 3U case, then built up this 2U 17" case I got off of amazon. *** !jbod chassis\ here is the case with some noctua fans, power supply, a cable adapter card and some led strips I had from a different build that I thought might be cool to include *** !8x 6TB drives\ these are my 8 drives that are in my array, the two parity drives stayed in the motherboard chassis *** !rear view of jbod\ rear shot *** !front of rack\ here is how my rack looks now with the JBOD sitting above the sliger motherboard case so that the top has some space for the psu to get some are since there is a patch panel above it *** !top shelf\ top shelf of the rack with three fans I added on the rear to help keep everything cool and all the air moving from front to back. I had to remove the back plate of the rack because the large chassis I was using before was sticking out and now with the ups, jbod and server they are too close to the back so I just kept it off *** !3U case before being built up\ forgot to take more photos of the main server build

    Protect view device

    Hello I've been using a chromecast with Google tv on a portable monitor to have my cameras displayed, but it seems the chromecast is pretty under powered. I am wondering if anyone has had any luck with the 4k version of the chromecast or another cheap streaming device like the Walmart onn that loads the protect app better.

    Currently one camera view works fine but using a four camera view is tough because you have to open and close the app over and over until every thing loads up, then if someone rings the doorbell and it goes to the doorbell view you start all over to get it back
