    DIY external M2 Nvme Case decisions.

    One of the problems you might have is that a M.2 TB enclosure connected with USB-C won't work on a PC that doesn't have a TB port. Unless someone knows of an enclosure that falls back to USB 3 if the PC doesn't support TB?

    Who here is keeping their 3 series and skipping 4 series nV cards?

    I just got a 3070TI. The 4080 is too expensive and frankly nothing I do really needs the power. Will probably keep it until the 5000 series.

    Open Source Cloud Software

    I have not installed it personally but I have accessed and used others Owncloud. They have a free community edition that seems feature complete or enterprise if you need support.

    How much does the SSD matter for gaming?

    It depends on the game. The more modern the game is the more likely it makes a difference. Due to ever increasing texture sizes and higher levels of detail new games are 100+GB and that information has to be loaded in real time. For example, Star Citizen is practically unplayable on a magnetic...

    Surface Pro

    I have a Surface Pro 8. It is a great little device if you want a fully functional windows device in a tablet form factor. You don't have to worry about programs being "battery managed" and closed in the background. Although it is expensive I suggest getting the surface pro signature keyboard as...

    Disappointing yes, but nothing some 3M dual lock can't solve.

    2FA Authentication for SSH in FreeBSD using FIDO Webinar

    One item of note, in your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file if you set it to AuthenticationMethods publickey,keyboard-interactive:pam (note the comma) you can require both key AND 2FA. I have my server set up to require key+2FA or password+2FA. You can even require a password, 2FA, and key if you wanted.

    Let's talk side displays!

    I have a no name 1920x1080 13.3" portable monitor that I bought for this purpose a few years back. It fits a VESA mount on back so I just connected it to another set of monitor arms and use it as a side monitor next to my main. It works well for my usage - normally I put chat or movies on it...
