Just got the HTC One for me, and the S4 for the missus. So far we're both happy, but I have found more glitches on the One.
Wifi seems to like disconnecting, unless I enable "Wifi Performance Mode", which supposedly reduces battery life. I'm also unable to get the notification sound to change - Even though it shows as having been changed.
So far I like the camera (low light is amazing), the speakers are good, and the screen is lovely. But after just a few days of ownership, I am already looking at flashing it with stock Android.........
Ordered a 64GB SanDisk yesterday for my S3. Just before reading this article, I checked my Amazon order status, and it was still being processed. Went to cancel the order, and it had changed to "dispatched".
How exactly did the UN Security Council create a resolution 16 years before the UN existed, and 5 years before Leó Szilárd came up with the idea of an atomic bomb?
Well people had best get a move on signing this;
Re: Anyone know...
That's assuming the Qnap supports drives larger than 2TB.
Re: Anyone know...
Is that all? I've currently got 24 3TB drives spinning away in my loft. 60Tb of usable storage after RAID.
And if you head over to the HardOCP forums, I've got a fairly tiny home server setup compared to some crazy people.........
Call me lazy
Call me lazy, but where's the link to the new PAN-OS features?
I too was not interested, but my wife decided to surprise me with an early Christmas present. Have played roughly 8 hours of multiplayer, and 2 hours of single player so far, and am enjoying it.
The tweaks to the multiplayer scoring system are welcome, and should reduce camping once players have gotten used to it. I am disappointed to see the tactical insertion is back, so expect to see it being exploited just as soon as players reach the required rank.
The few set pieces that I've experienced in single player have been brilliant. I'm playing through on veteran, which to be honest is probably now beyond my skill level, so I'll probably have to reduce the difficulty to get through the final missions, which are normally carnage.
It's not a genre-changing title, but it is a good game, that should keep me going until The Elder Scrolls Online is released.
I'm actually looking forward to it.
Brilliant game - It set a standard in fps games only really surpassed by Half Life. Both DF2 and Jedi Academy also lived up to expectations, although JA2 was a bit disappointing.
Was re-released on Steam last year, along with its sequels - I'd highly recommend picking them up.
WTF is the point of WTF? Is anybody really that angry/surprised the the "TF" is really necessary? Is the reg trying to appeal to a younger audience with this use of language?
Just stop, before I have to refer to urbandictionary every time I read a reg article.
As a happy Citrix and Palo customer, thing is all good news.
I've been very happy with my PS+, especially when they break something somewhere else, as this usually results in some more decent free games.
Sony have been releasing some really decent titles on + recently. Am playing through Darksiders at the moment, and have Just Cause 2 and LBP2 to play after that.
And auto updates are a godsend. All my games and the console are up to date and ready to play.
My only minor gripe with the service is savegame storage. 150MB gets eaten quickly. Especially with 10MB+ Skyrim saves.
A little too late
Still running our server virtualization on 4.1, with no plans to upgrade, as have lost all faith in VMWare since the vram business.
We switched to Citrix for our VDI project this year, and although prefer the networking tools in ESXI, find everything else pretty much the same in XenServer, and at 1/3 the initial cost, and roughly the same in annual maintenance.
Screw you VMWare - You drove us away, and Citrix were more than happy to take our money.
What's the problem?
I spoke to my Misco account manager a few weeks back to determine expected availability, got a phone call on Thursday to say they were in, and three arrived on Friday.
Fantastic bit of kit - My iPad has started collecting dust already.
In the words of jack O'Neil - "I've seen this movie... it hits Paris."
Surely rather than deflecting, we should look at slowing/speeding up the object, so that it either misses us, or hit the moon? We're a pretty small, moving target......
Why is it going to take a month to get your Daedric armour? Complete the Dawnstar Museum quest to get 4 respawning daedrics (therefore daedra hearts) every 7 days, and some respawning ebony. Nip over to Gloombound mine and get enough ebony to craft a full set of armour and most of the weapons. Wait 30 days and the mine replenishes, and you can make some more.......
A month - Pah - I did it in a day, and that included making 500+ iron daggers to level up my smithing :)
Is this just for ICS, or will older phones get it?
Still happily running 25 Netware 6.5 servers over here. We tried OES last year for Zen11, but will be sticking with Zen7 on 6.5 for our production environment for a bit longer.
6.5 virtualises beautifully on VMWare, as mentioned is rock solid, and I doubt we'll ever stop using it while I'm still here.
I would like to have a play with Directory Services to make the client logins more transparent. I think we'll wait for OES11.
Looks useful for determining the exact location of the robot dog that is hunting you down on mars.......
I thought Lemiwinks had dealt with this nonsense!
I'm the network admin for a school. We're currently happily running 70-100 VDIs (depending on the time of day), and will be going full scale up to 600 next summer.
For us, storage was the biggest pain. We tried running our trial VDI's alongside our servers, and quickly ran out of IO. We splashed some cash on two new SANs with a TB of Cache and Dedupe, and are happily outperforming our fat clients. Login times are now ~ 1 minute as opposed to 2 mins+.
For VDI get your numbers right. There's a good tool called Quest VDI Assessment. Run that on as many desktops as you can, and it will tell you your average and peak disk IO, memory and CPU. After that it's just a case of doing your sums, planning for some failover and buying some new toys.
We're now looking at Samsung PCoIP thin clients. So far very good, and have just watched the Matrix full screen streamed from one of our virtual servers.
So neutrinos can be fired through solid rock slightly faster than light and be detected at the other end? How long before I can start using this tech for my broadband?
BLOPS running fine on my PS3 with Virgin 50Mb..........
well that appears to have died within the first two minutes :)
I'm just trying to decide between a FAS3210 and a V7000 for our VDI project.......... Flashcache vs Easytier...............
They look pretty well matched in the SPC-1E benches, but the VStorage API support tips things in NetApp's favour.
Storage is complicated!
The Hitler Bunker episode aired in the States last year, so we didn't get it first..........
