    Web conferencing / meeting services

    https://meet.jit.si provides almost everything every other does, FULLY free, Open source, can self host. Only thing i wish it had was accounts to where you could directly connect to an individual. the generally office is using Hype, which is generally horrible. More so that it requires some...

    Thoughts on Synology vs real server?

    kinda old post but.. my ds412+ is still running well. One or two users transcoding is fine. Much more than that it gets iffy. I've since dropped that and went straight to smb browsing with VLC on my fire stick. it just works and no messing around with plex, kodi or whatever. Ease of use is...

    Worth it to go from x79 to x99?

    I have a 3930k. Still does everything just fine. if you are gaming just upgrade the video card. not super up to date with your CPU though. IMO if you are gaming take that money and move to a Ryzen. I recently got a chinese 2011 board and dropped a 2650Lv2 into it. Great for a VM host once...

    Vanity Fair Editor Sues Twitter Troll For Giving Him A Seizure

    I don't know who the bigger idiot is... It may be an ass move.. but you'd think living with epilepsy during his life.. you'd have precautions against such things especially after the first time it happened months ago. I don't really care to get into the legal issues.. if nothing else the...

    Amazon Accused Of “Intolerable Conditions” At Scottish Warehouse

    100% agree.. Also like to say that here in the states there are places where if you call off you can be "punished" even if you have time, certain days you cannot call off baring extreme emergency and if you do you can be fired on the spot... i'll make an assumption.. most of these workers are...

    Ford Developing "Spotlighting" LED Headlights

    instead of blinding the oncoming person walking along the road in the video why not just project the infrared person on the windshield? This tech would also be pretty crappy and piss people off in the city unless you are looking for a prostitute :-)

    Anyone here use a Asus Rampage 4 Extreme

    that high pitch whine was a fairly common issue for the early releases. Luckily mine is fine. and i'm pretty sure the fan is controllable through bios or software i don't remember. Probably doesn't get THAT hot. so you could tone it down. It probably is replaceable but its not just a simple...

    Microsoft HoloLens Used To Teach Human Anatomy

    It was proposed by the President as well in the certain zones across the country that had highest unemployment or something (don't remember) don't know if it actually happened though. Chicago's problem boils down to is that they spend more than they get in. I don't care who you are, what...

    while that's true they could give breaks to companies to develop better infrastructure. New York State is doing this now to attract some business in. but if you didn't see my earlier post they just had to take a large loan and layoff 1400 people to make a payment to the teachers pension and...
