So with this whole Nas deal that I bought, I know it's not a backup so I've been thinking about my backups and decided I was going to do archivable blu-rays or DVDs whatever. Bought an M disk LG Blu-ray player burner combo and had to buy an enclosure for it of course cuz no computer case has slots for DVD Blu-ray drives. So far I'm just ripping my all my media haven't tried actually saving any of my stuff just yet. Had anyone else gone this route?
What are you guys using as a NAS? I recently did the raspberry Pi openmediavault/Plex server. But don't have much faith on SD cards (PI). So I was thinking of repurposing an old laptop and maybe trying something different than openmediavault. I have to 4 terabyte hard drives I know this laptop has one 3.0 USB I can just get a little hub for it. Or should I just go ahead and bite the bullet and get a Synology or something like that.
The Linux-based PinePhone is the most interesting smartphone I've tried in years
Man buying a computer nowadays is making my head hurt. I was looking for a Budget build maybe going with an OptiPlex, but they are asking for crazy money. So I decided I'm going to build my Semi-budget PC. Not much of a gamer these days but wouldn't mind it sometimes. I'm sure of one thing I'm going AMD this time around.
@matt this is me today
Can't seem to get a response on a Dell forums I have someone letting me pick between 3 computers kind of a favor complicated. All 3 Dell computers optiplex790 Dt(I5 second gen), 980, precision 1500 (I5 first gen) I really don't know what I'm going to do with it probably run a few VM's I don't know (Nas) or get an inexpensive video card and do a little bit of light gaming.
How to make brightness up/down keys work on #PineBookPro, for real.
Not sure if it was like this before I flashed the keyboard firmware, but anyway, the brightness up/down keys didn't register as normal XF86MonBrightnessUp/Down keys. According to both evtest and xev they didn't have a mapping.
Using evtest I was able to get their scancodes, and then all that was needed was to create an udev hwdb definition.
Crap downloaded latest version of Linux mint on my friends computer in the freakin touch pad doesn't work. Doing my research online but I'm coming up with nothing. And this is why I like the Arch Wiki. #bythewayirunarch
So I decided on the raspberry pi 4 2gb for my pi- hole. I feel I future proofed a little going with this one.
