Re: I will soon be wifi6 (802.11AX) at my house!!

The big advantage of AC vs. N is 4 stream vs. 2 stream. Of course, the disadvantage is that it requires the 5 GHz bandwidth, which has MUCH less penetrating ability than 2.4 GHz, so AC won't get as good a range as N 2.4. Get the same range as N 5 though. AX (5 only) is SUPPOSED to get better range t...

Re: I will soon be wifi6 (802.11AX) at my house!!

Helps with transferring files internally. I have a small consumer NAS (4x4TB RAID 5) that I use to store things on, and while it's connected via hardwire, the faster wireless speeds would help immensely when transferring things via a laptop on wireless. Also the biggest reason (IMO) to go to AX is i...

I will soon be wifi6 (802.11AX) at my house!!

Since I needed to transfer $500 over to my checking to cover the deductible for the 18-wheeler attacking my car, that was going to leave an odd amount, so I transferred an even grand (it hurt to do that, there's not a lot in there). With the money leftover after the deductible I went ahead and order...

Re: What hardware are you using?

Bidding on some new SSD's. Found a Toshiba XG3 (was one of the first NVMe drives to come close to Samsung in performance using the same NAND as the SX6000 Pro I recently had) BIN for $99 free shipping. Seriously considering it to replace the Crucial P1 I have. Also found a MyDigitalSSD SBX 1 TB w/ l...

Re: MX-18 Won't Boot

So, according to the Nouveau (GODS do I hate trying to spell that) support matrix, the driver supports everything important in the NV40 (GeForce 6000 & 7000 series), which is most likely what that computer would have. So really, the 4.19 kernel should work just fine, and there's no real reason to us...

Re: MX-18 Won't Boot

Generally I'd try it as well. If it's an Intel GPU, or an older but not ancient Nvidia card, there's a good chance it'll work. If it's older ATI/AMD, yeah, might want to stick to something that uses an older kernel.

Re: 5 best password managers for Linux desktop

I started when I was 18. I did what 18-year olds do.... Although, I was one of the best at controlling the "cherry picker" type. I was one of only like 4 people who were wiling to even USE them Yale rail guide cherry pickers out on the regular warehouse floor (wire guidance in the racks, nothing out...
