  1. Time Warner gave us a quote today to run lines to the house. Now we need to comfirm it with the landlord. happy/10
  2. It's been a while, but: 1. New Macbook Pro 2017 (Got it refurb). 2. 2015 Buick Enclave I didn't really want much this Christmas. Just bills paid lol.
  3. I'm a full-time UNIX Administrator on-premise for a client and a Cloud Administrator for my company.
  4. $2000 worth of Apple debt. Girlfriend's iPhone 11 and my refurb 2017 MBP 13" (No touchbar).
  5. New house. Moving in this Saturday, if this Hurricane will permit...
  6. New house. Closing on it in August. Can't wait to get out of this shitty apartment.
  7. I'd imagine this ties into their announcement for Ground Station at Re:Invent. I'm no SATCOM expert, but I'd imagine only having two regions available is probably killing bandwidth requirements.
  8. Are the DE/WMs necessary to use SAPP? If not, they can probably get away with t2.small t3.small EC2 instances
  9. Ironically looking at chairs myself and this is one of the ones I was considering.
  10. Don't know if I posted before (probably did). Currently using 16GB and I think I need to increase to 32GB for VM's sake. I max out pretty easy running 4-6 VMs.
  11. Judging by the picture above it looks like somehow the pilot may have hit the underside of the other eurofighter. Either the top one descending or the bottom one ascending into the other one.
  12. China has the world by the balls because it has 95% of the world's rare earth minerals to produce electronics and other technologies. It's not possible to have a sustainable market in the west without being insanely expensive due to the rarity of those minerals and the amount of time and money it takes to extract and refine those materials. Making 5G equipment outside of China isn't going to solve the China dependency problem. I don't put much trust in western companies keeping up with the oath of non-Chinese import products (dodging sanctions and embargoes) as they would save a shit ton of money ordering the smaller/cheaper components from China (AKA, made in China/assembled in USA bullshit), which brings up the whole Super Micro and assembly line tampering controversy.
  13. Windows 10 for my primary workstation, Server 2008/2012 R2 for my Citrix jump boxes for RDP, and then Solaris 10/11 and RHEL 6 for jump boxes for SSH depending on the domains they're associated with.
  14. OpenSUSE Leap 15 on my Thinkpad X240 What icon theme are you using?
  15. Ya'll found my wallet.
  16. A little more information would be helpful. What platform is this running on? The error itself seems like you're attempting to run this in Wine on Linux or container instance. Is Winetricks installed? Edit: Can we get the full output of what you're getting in your terminal?
  17. Holding my daughter. <3 She was born on March 15th @2340 EST. 7lbs 13oz. 20.5in Long.
  18. I'm only looking at their hosting map. I highly doubt they have servers hosted in every single one of those locations. That would be ridiculously expensive for them. I'm going off the assumption that they're most likely upcharging EC2 instances and creating a managed service for game hosting. If they at least don't even provide maintenance on those servers then you're being ripped off. But I agree, know the technical limitations of the services you want to run. Sounds like a crock of shit they're trying to sell or they just threw some $GAME global variable onto a page template. You can still host bare metal in AWS, but it's generally a lot more expensive and really only useful for customers that need to meet some kind of compliance (ie, requirement to not share compute resources with other customers for privacy/security) or licensing. You also have Dedicated Instances, which is like running on a dedicated host on bare metal, except on top of a hypervisor on a single host.
  19. I don't know about maximum player limit extensions, but I know from looking at their hosting map that they are either spinning up VM instances in Azure or AWS and claiming to be a dedicated host.
  20. I want to see those "shitty internet speeds" you guys are always complaining about... Come at me. I got top tier internet.
  21. I'd also like to say that AWS EC2 and Azure should be considered as well. Create on-demand instances and only pay for what you use.
  22. Unfortunately I haven't. Life stuff has kind of gotten in the way of my lab setup. Less tech and more baby stuff. I've been curious to see if this can be done USB as well, but you would have to write custom drivers. That would make it more universal for controllers like Raspberry Pi and other boards. I'd assume you could use the GPIO pinouts on the Raspberry Pi as well to interface directly with the serial on the radio.
