Anyone using a VPN on a Linux desktop? I'm thinking ExpressVPN but open to suggestions before I pull the trigger.
Looking for a small form factor PC to drive a graphics display. Was considering a Mac Mini but they are approaching 3 years since their last hardware refresh and the spec is looking a bit dated now. Intel Iris 5100 integrated GPU is a good as it gets.
Any suggestions from the congregation?
Ive landed a contract working from home and could do with some extra screen real estate so have ordered a second 4k monitor.
Im looking for recommendations on a video card that meets the following criteria:

Has anyone got any interesting experiences of working with smart energy meters and switches? I want to be able to change things when I work away from home. I'm wary because it looks like you have to buy in to a branded system (like Smappee or LightwaveRF), and AFAIK there are no interoperable...
Adele hides in a BOX on wheels to reach tour stage * | Daily Mail Online
Looks like a spammer is using MyCos email address to send tulipe our, which means I'm getting (so far) best part of 5,000 bounced emails coming back to my mail box, I've got a rule which junks them all but anything I can do? And what are the odds my domain is going to get blacklisted?
Anyone got any pointers on a decent desk speakerphone (normal landline type) ?
I've got a BT Décor 2200 but the speaker quality id terrible. I spend a good chunk of my time on webex etc and it's a pain as the speaker loses my voice if I don't have the phone practically in my mouth.
Getting back into EC2 for a little side project I have on the back burner.
Any recommendation for a GUI SCP client for MacOS? I am finding the command line quite tedious for the volume and nature of transfers I am doing.
Any recommendations for getting a new gaming rig, budget around £1500 maybe more. Pre-built, build yer own, what have you got?
Mostly just for x-plane 11 so multi monitor graphics card or cards but I'll be running some VM's as well.
I'm going to be looking for a new television fairly soon. I see quite a few manufacturers are doing them with curved screens. What is the point of this? Does it somehow increase the picture quality? Does room size affect whether you should go for flat or curved?
Does anyone have an suggestions for a customer and licence management tool (preferably opensource)? My planB is getting to the point now where I am sending out invoices with licence keys on a regular basis. I need something where I can store the customer details, licence key, some history and get...
I just found out about Ethereum - a distributed self-code-executing network. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66SaEDzlmP4
Why oh why :)
Distributed apps can talk to themselves.
No one has access to the App except itself.
The app can do whatever it was programmed to do on its own and outside...
AMD 8 core CPU. Having problems with cooling before so bought an ARCTIC FREEZER cpu cooler. Made it a bit better but not brilliant.
In terms of case fans, just one.
At the moment, CPU core gets to about 50C (which I thought is not that hot!) and then the PC freezes. I can reproduce by loading...
An HDD on my home server died when I was backing it up and left a few 4GB files on the backup disk as 0 bytes.
I'm wondering if anyone can give any pointers on whether they can be recovered.
When created on the backup, they would have been on a new disk so I'm hoping they were saved...
Any recommendations? The Dell Ultrasharps seem to get good reviews though a bit more than I wanted to pay ideally.
DisplayPort 1.2 Out (I like the idea of daisy chaining them, less clutter)
VESA (will be used with a 2 or 4 way stand)
Ideally have night time/reading modes...
I always thought there was a way to flag yourself as looking for your next gig within LinkedIn.
However, I've been looking for 15 minutes & can't find it anywhere! Anybody know how/where please?
Has anyone been on the Mearki webinars, got a free AP and not using it?
Having registered a couple of domain names (.co.uk and .com) for a blog I plan to start, the next stage is to subscribe to a web hosting site.
I suppose it would be better if the site was hosted in the UK, although this is not essential.
My main criterion is that page...
So I've got my Dell T20 all set up running Windows 2012 R2 Server, and VMWare Workstation Pro to run Virtual Machines. The idea being keep the W12 Server 'clean' with minimal extra software, all that can go on the VM's which can easily be rolled back etc. Got W10 and W7 Ultimate so far,...

4. My goal keeper is a ****wit, what can i do.
