HTPC Project...

For some reason SFF itx chassis are in short supply in black. I found a vendor that might be in stock by mid July.

HTPC Project...

Most of the components have arrived. The only setback being the mobo which is out of stock (@ a reasonable price) probably until August.

SFF Projects

I am currently finishing a Gaming Console Killer project bringing together the best SFF (Small Form Factor) compromises to a relatively compact footprint. The core of this build combines a AMD Ryzen5 3400g (APU) and a ASRock x570 itx mainboard. The main challenge seems to be keeping performance up a...

Account concern...

I am interested in changing my username or alternatively locking my current account (preserving my contributions) and creating a more suitable account. My policy understanding is that it is a violation to have 2 accounts otherwise I would have made one already. I am prefacing my intent to mitigate a...

EnhanceIO...

To increase capacity and performance on my server builds I am considering this binary... EnhanceIO is a disk cache module for the Linux kernel. Its goal is to use fast but relatively small SSD drives to improve the performance of large but slow hard drives. see also... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Forum Censorship and Hypocrisy...

For 3yrs the attacks on my point of view have stopped only to continue anew. This is a cautionary tale of creative independent thought being silenced by the thought police. In light of the mitigations needed to address the mutilation of my contributions by those who choose to hide behind their autho...

Forum Censorship and Hypocrisy...

The short version... it occurred during a flame war between me and Evan a few years back. Evan was an attention queen that rose to the status of "Warlord" (surpassing me... it took me 6 yrs of contributions) in a record 4 weeks by making over 600 trivial posts. Evan was very cordial but only wanted ...

VPN on each end: is it secure for teleconferencing like Zoom.

IMHO (or not?) take this under consideration... There is no such thing as security ... There is only... best practices... "eye balls make bugs shallow"... peer review... brand reputation... hardening... prevention... mitigation and the list of contingencies goes on. Anyone looking for a guarantee in...

Deleted Account???

All I need to know is why I was not given due process. I am not looking for an excuse... pretext or pivot or spin to clean up what is really going on but an honest answer. No one can seriously think that this is policy and not actually truth speaking to power and it's consequences. It is human natur...

Forum Censorship and Hypocrisy...

This arbitrary and capricious sanction (that like Evan's vandalism splits the baby... then throws it out with the bathwater) has effectively not only wiped out my numerous contributions but also the resource of information that I use to develop Porteus. Its not as if there is an automatic mechanism ...
