    The Division 2

    The Div 1 is one of my favourite games, #2 fell flat for me i didnt like the setting as much. If they continued the story from 1 i would be happy. A survival mode would be the icing on the cake

    up until 6 months ago I was in the telecom field, when march 2020 hit all of our call centers/ support went wfh, at first there was no noticeable difference for us in the field but by 2 months in it was very noticeable the difference in quality of support.

    FCC wants to hear about how internet data caps affect peoples lives.

    They dont affect me anymore, household of 3 with 2 tvs streaming constantly and iv not come close to the soft cap of 1.5tb that my Isp has. I dont consume as much media as I used to since theres nothing new worth watching so i am sure that has lowered my monthly considerably. That is with...

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    I havent bought yet as my current address is serviced by cable but we own very rural property that will require starlink down the road. This block is completely full and all summer the hundreds of RV’s that come through with roaming dishs just drags it to a crawl according to friends who have...

    The first release with the circular dish is what i and most of the groups refer to as gen 1. Im not sure if location matters but since they have offered $199 startup here in eastern canada speeds have been dropping weekly even on priority package.

    Starlink (Generation 2) testing

    My first hand experience is i have 2 friends 800 ft apart one has the first generation and the other has the new one, both on same “package” so to speak. 1st gen gets 200D/20U consistently while the new one barely hits 88 down and has higher ping. Starlink has told him theres nothing that can be...

    Share your pfSense / OPNsense builds

    I was thinking of running pfsense in a Vm if possible, I have just started looking into pfsense so I am not very familiar with it. If it cant be done i have no problem throwing a dedicated system into a a 1u server chassis i have. I guess my biggest question is how old of a cpu is too old to...

    Share your pfSense / OPNsense builds

    Really starting to look into a Pfsense build since my current isp provided xb7 will not run a vpn. If i am going to do it i might as well jump off the deep end, how crazy of a cpu would i need to run a 2.5gb network since i am most likely going to put my storage serve in the same box if at all...

    So exactly what does "Comcast 10G" really mean?

    We had a 10gb connection at my last house with fiber and it was pretty slick when you could find a source to take advantage of those speeds. Cable 10gb would be useless unless theres a better modem then their xb8 with only has a 2.5gb port and is only docsis 3.1.

    Comcast cable - no backup power

    My data will slow down quite a bit but not unusable, i just chalk it up to the entire area using data and saturating the towers. Im very lucky that the local isp’s Maintence tech is on the same node as me so im never down long after a power outage haha

    Comcast cable - no backup power

    Most isps dont put backup power to their nodes anymore as they prefer to keep power to cell towers for lifeline requirements

    Starlink (Generation 2) testing

    Best thing about here is that it cant get any worse because the grid allotment is full, If the launch of the 2.0 sats improves speeds i will be taking over a buddys account as his road is getting a fiber expansion in the next 16 months and i will be building on my 50 acres of very rural property.

    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    This is almost what i have been looking for, 27 is perfect for my setup, i am more then happy with 1440P since my video card cant run 4k anyway. Not a fan of the antiglare but will be keeping an eye on this for sure
