  1. A big loss, rest in peace.
  2. Funnily I had this happen on one of my PC's today. I'm not sure what happened, it was when I started halo and it was the same black screen with no signal on my monitor and the system seemed hung. Might have been a bug a recent windows update? I have never had this issue before.
  3. Hot
  4. Happy birthday.
  5. This sucks as a lot of the time the "View Page" link goes nowhere. Apparently right clicking the image and clicking "View Image" will take you to the highres version for now. Semi-related but reverse image search blows too since they cannibalised it, you can't use it to find the original image of something any more. It's a shame Yahoo when down the toilet.
  6. This exact thing happened to AMD last time this happened when they ramped up production of hawaii based cards. GPU's cant be whipped up overnight and by the time they are ready to ship them the demand could be long gone. The longer this goes on the more cards will be in use for mining and as soon as that stops being profitable the card selloff will effectively destroy next gen low/mid-range too. This really is not sound business for GPU manufactures and the short term sales are nothing compared to what they stand to lose. I went into a local PC store a few weeks ago to look around and they had miners running right in the store. The GPU's were insanely marked up but they seemed happy to sell the ones being used for mining. Completely insane and I did not expect to see this over here. Glad I got a 1080 and 32GB ram when I did.
  7. I feel like I've woken up for the first time in months but what I cared for in the past is gone.
  8. It's been bloody hot. been in the 30's for days on end which is unusual for down here.
  9. Heh, most of the remaining players still play this way.
  10. Good fun. I'd vote that GTA map if I could aim right.
  11. 1-2 Can't stand eating or cooking leather boots.
  12. PCIe If I pass it through anyway I lose networking on the host. I need the bridge so I can access samba shares, ssh back into the host from windows etc. This is the reason I don't just use "user" networking in qemu.
  13. I can still use wpa supplicant, I'm using systemd but netctl is not systemd's own networking thing and they don't conflict. I don't use virt-manager anymore and instead start the VM from a bash script, so I miss out on nice things like it's automatic networking stuff. I do this because I use some newer features that are not yet supported by it and seemed a pain to fudge in. One of these is evdev passthrough, this lets you pass through the keyboard and moue to a virtual device while being able to switch input between the host and guest by pressing both ctrl keys at once. In regards to the Nvidia driver, yeah there is a newer way. Previously we had to hide the fact that it was running in a VM and this hurt performance as it disabled all the hyper-v extensions, causing lots of stutter for me. The new way is to just spoof the hypervisor ID as it turns out Nvidia look for "KVM" and "Hyper-V" specifically, so if you spoof the ID string to anything else the driver will install and run letting you keep the hyper-v extensions on.
  14. The device is a PCIe Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter. I need a virtual machine because I use KVM GPU passthrough to run Windows and play games etc. on, It works really well. My only problem is wifi cards don't seem to work the same as Ethernet.
  15. I'm trying to add a wireless device to a network bridge but I'm not exactly sure how to do it. According to the Arch wiki I need to use hostapd but that seems to be for creating an software AP and I'm not sure how it's meant to authenticate with the main access point. The idea is to have a QEMU virtual machine use the bridge to access the outer network. I have been using netctl for network configuration up to this point.
