    Troubleshooting in wall e-net (rental house)

    I don't know if ive done it that way, modem -> router -> switch. If I test that directly into the board and it works I'm assuming it would be the same with the wall jacks? Id need to go Modem->router->wall jack -> other wall jacks? Ouch, I was hoping to be able to run the modem into the wall...

    Strapped Into A Falling Helicopter...For Science!

    Common mostly required test to do when getting a roto license. Fairly straight forward, much easier situation to recover from than say a flat spin in a small airplane (which also used to be a required test to get a license)

    Need to export artist/song list

    I probably have a fairly unique problem in that i have multiple formats of music ripped. Way back when when mp3 first came out i mostly ripped to 128 kbps files, which sound absolutely horrible. So i have gone through and reripped most of my collection, but not all. I have them seperated by...

    X-COM 2 Looks really good. Is it worth the $60

    Maybe you should keep your argument consistant. "Now your $60 is mostly going to advertising and marketing then development" has nothing to do with production costs

    X-COM 2 Looks really good. Is it worth the $60

    If you honestly believe this, youre beyond naive. The cost to develop a AAA game has SIGNIFICANTLY increased. Coding in games now is significantly more complex, and significantly more time consuming than it used to be. Engines are better yes, but the API's are more complex and require more...
