    Dell 24 Gaming Monitor - S2417DG - for net $400

    I've had the 27" version of this monitor for several months now and still love it Yes, it's a TN panel but a damn good one and looks fantastic after applying some tweaks and the response times... Gsync tax sucks but playing games and not noticing when frame rate dips is something else

    Dell S2716DG 144Hz 27.0" Monitor - $498.54

    Got the S2716DG set up last night. As mentioned, out of the box calibration is awful. I managed to tinker with the gamma/brightness /vibrance/etc settings to my liking and it's quite an upgrade from my old monitor. 144hz vs 60hz is really something else. Not sure i applied the ICC profile...

    Dark Souls 3

    is everyone having framerate issues when using a gamepad? drops wildly to 20fps every few seconds on my 980ti, unless i put the gamepad down and use mouse/KB then it's rather steady 60fps. tried XBox One and 360 controllers to same result.

    Who's playing Witcher 3 on a PS4?

    Go into character options and press R2 (IIRC, it tells you at bottom right corner). Be aware that PS4 standby mode can cause it to report incorrectly, this was supposedly patched.

    VMware storage migration with virtual mode RDM - insufficient space

    5.5 revision 2143827 currently. no KB, VMware support is still researching if this is restricted to just our cluster (very possible) and haven't been able to reproduce elsewhere. we need virtual mode RDMs primarily for our backup solution (netbackup snapshots) and only use physical mode RDMs...

    VMware storage migration with virtual mode RDM - insufficient space

    in case anyone else comes across this issue, it's related to datastore cluster miscalculating the RDM capacity. recreating the datastore cluster did not help but dragging datastores out of the cluster for the VM storage migration to succeed then dragging them back in is an easy workaround.

    VMware storage migration with virtual mode RDM - insufficient space

    thanks, i did find a blog article yesterday that mentioned performing the storage migration in two steps, first move the VMDK disk to new datastore then move the RDM's but i still get the same "insufficient space" error on the latter. this also left the VM straddled between two datastores and we...

    Vita and PS4 Remote Play Experiences
