Re: torture

I've played Elite Dangerous on the DK2 for hours without issue.

I tried Half Life 2 on the same rig, and lasted about 20 mins before starting to feel a queasy.

Apparently something to do with being sat in a cockpit, which sort of 'grounds' your motion with a point of reference.

Re: What next SFTP added to IIS?

Erm, no SFTP is not supported in IIS.

Even the article you link to specifically states SFTP is not supported!

Quote from the page you linked: "Microsoft currently does not provide a solution for securing FTP traffic using FTP over SSH (SFTP).".

FTP over SSL is FTPS, not SFTP, completely different protocols!

I'm on what I expect is probably average spec Win 7 PC (a Lenovo T420).

From click to > prompt, took about 7 seconds for PowerShell

Out of curiosity, Cygwin64 Terminal on the same PC, about 3 seconds from click to prompt.

For reference, this is running on mains, not battery, the spinning rust was not sleeping, and the machine was otherwise idle.

No doubt sticking an SSD would give me a big boost. but that's not likely to happen in any typical corporate environment, as they cost money! (Damn penny pincher's)

Re: In remission?

I'll bite.

SSH was written from the ground up to be secure, unlike HTTPS (or FTPS) where it was basically bolted on top of an existing legacy protocol.

SSH has been the standard login to all other modern server platforms for years.

This just means Windows is finally catching up with existing business practice.

And what does 'from legacy OSs' mean? Most of my SSH sessions are initiated from Windows Desktop using PuTTy, is that the legacy OS your talking about?

Windows 10 upgrade ADWARE forces its way on to Windows 7 and 8.1

Boothy
Bronze badge

Re: Why upgrade?

Quote: "1. If I upgrade will I have to re-install all my programs?"

Use the upgrade check tool from the Win 10 'ADWARE', it will scan your system, and tell you if there are any issues.

As an example, I ran it on my Win 7 64bit system, which I build about 3 years ago, (so has lots of stuff installed), I have everything from games (Steam, Origin etc.) to Office, to several IDEs (Android, Eclipse etc). Lots of productivity tools (UltraEdit, NotePad++, Cygwin64 etc).

The only single item it flagged up was VMware Workstation, which it stated would need re-installing. I'm guessing due to the custom Network services it uses.

I'm not saying I trust the output of this test tool 100%, so I'll be waiting a while before doing any updating (give it a couple of months at least, and I'll be trying it on an older Laptop first), plus of course a full system backup before hand.

Re: A question

An addition.

Assuming that MS won't just allow us to download an ISO/USB image etc.

Windows 10 now has a factory reset option. Which is suppose to reset the system back to a fresh install state.

Therefore could you create a recover disk from within your current Win 10 installation (i.e. your Win 7/8.1 updated OS), then use that to install on a new PC, and then do a factory reset?

Might have to have a play with my Win 10 VM tonight!

Re: Still confused about other matters .

It's not a "free upgrade for a year", it's "the upgrade is free for a year".

If you miss the year dead line, and then decide you want to upgrade, you have to purchase a retail copy instead.

Free or paid for, it's still the same version of Win 10. The only difference being you'd have a disk with the retail version, so would presumably be easier to do fresh installs.

Re: WMC removal?

Windows Media Player is still there, and should actually be a little better.

For example, it will include FLAC and MKV support out of the box now, so no (or at least reduced) need for 3rd party codecs.

I'm hoping it will rip to FLAC, and not just play!

I suspect MS didn't really want to add these, as they favour their own WMA and WMV (crap) formats, but there is a lot of contents out there that is in MKV format, and a lot of codec packs of dubious credibility ("nice bit of malware on the side sir?").

My guess is MS are just trying to reduce support calls, "Why won't these files play?", "Malware? The only thing I installed recently was the 'Super Duper Best Ever codec pack', which I found on Bing." etc.

Re: A question

I'm curious about this as well. I've got a full Win 7, rather than an OEM version, which I periodically use do a fresh install with. (Either due to hardware upgrades, such as a new Mother Board and CPU, or just as a fresh clean start).

So at some point in the future, would I be able to do that with the free Win 10 upgrade?

i.e. If I build a new PC, would I be able to do a fresh Win 10 install on that machine (preferably without having to install Win 7 plus SP1 first), and effectively move my licence from my old PC, to my new one, in the same way I can currently do now with my Win 7 DVD disk

Re: Hmmm....

DX 12 should be supported by most current, and a lot of older DX10/11 cards, as it's basically driver optimisations, rather than hardware changes.

For example, nVidia Fermi chipset upwards will support DX12, that's the GeForce 400 series from 2010.

For AMD it needs GCN, which is HD 7700 onwards (2012).

So anyone who has a reasonably current system, and especially anyone with a 'gaming rig' should benefit.

Personally, I'm on Win 7 64bit, I'm not planning on shifting to Win 10 any time soon.

Re: How big is that market anyway?

Quote: "While the gaming-scene is very vocal (and visual), the market in itself isn't that large, AFAIK."

What definition of 'isn't that large' are you using here?

The current worldwide gaming market is around $90 billion US dollars. (PC, Consoles, Phones, Tablets, web games etc etc).

Around 30% (and growing) of that market is PC gamers, and that figure doesn't include the casual type gamers (web based games etc), this is your AAA title and MMO type players.

So that's around a US $27 billion per year marker for PC gamers currently.

For a market comparison, global recorded music sales for 2014, was around US $15 billion, in total.

So no, the gaming market is not small, not by a long way, and not even if you only looked at the PC market.

Re: No need to worry

Okay, puzzled at the down vote! (If you're going to down vote, at least leave a comment so we know why!).

So someone on the Reg really thinks these little short range no frills Google cars, will be bought by joe bloggs for private use? Why would you bother when it would be far cheaper to just hire one when needed?

I would have thought anyone buying an auto driving car for private use, would be more likely to buy something more comfortable, like an updated BMW i3, Toyota iQ, or some other similar car that has a few more home comforts in them. (Obviously updated versions/later models with auto-drive added).

Re: Kettles

Instead of restricting power to a specific input amount, would not a more sensible approach be to rate devices on the usable power, i.e their efficiency?

e.g. for a kettle, how much of the energy into the device, goes into the water, and is still there once the heating cycle competes? (i.e. Takes into account losses due to poor insulation).

Then set a minimum efficiency threshold. Say 75% to start with, then later 85%, then a few years later again 95%

That way people could still have their 2.5KW kettles, but their increased power simply boil the water faster, but with no more wastage than a same efficiency rated 1.25KW kettle.

I suspect the primary aim here by 'them upstairs' is not actually an increase in efficiency, they just want to reduce the peak load times when the advertising breaks kick in on the TV and everyone goes to make a tea/coffee.

WTF?

Microsoft, what challenge?

Quote: "to challenge the Rift with HoloLens".

Rift is V.R. HoloLens is O.R. not the same market, so how exactly is HoloLens going to challenge the Rift (or any other VR headset) for market space?

So if you want fully immersive VR, you'll buy a Rift (or other VR headset), if you want OR, you get a HoloLens (or other OR headset).

Not saying you won't get games running on the HoloLens (I can image some would be quite cool), but they won't be the same sort of games you'd have running under VR.

I could image the Besiege game being quite good to play in HoloLens, if they can get enough performance into the device. (HoloLens is a standalone device, so self contained, so your going to be CPU/GPU/Memory/Storage limited, unlike the Rift).

Re: I really don't want to go back to a gas oven.

I wasn't trying to be patronising, you specifically stated that you run high power items at the same time, and nothing you posted indicated that you might have thought this was a bad idea, or that it could be better managed. Not everyone considers peak usage.

Would be good for anyone with Solar PV, not just off grid.

I've got a 4kW system (in the UK), and around 70%+ of the generated power goes onto the grid each day, especially during the week, when I'm not at home.

With one of these, I could put the excess power into the battery during the day, and then feed off the battery in the evening.

This would greatly reduce the need to take power off the grid. (Likely still be needed for high consumption devices, like the leccy oven).

Could also be used to charge a leccy car at night, as at the moment, I'd have to charge a car from the grid, (if I had one), which seems rather silly when I have PV energy to spare during the day!

Re: I really don't want to go back to a gas oven.

One of the issues here is to get people like yourself to stop running all the high power usage items at once. This helps reduce your peak usage hugely, and helps level out overall demand.

i.e. Don't do laundry at the same time as you're cooking, use the dish-washer after your finished eating etc.

I've got Solar PV, so I obviously try to do as much as possible during the day. I turn the laundry and the dishwasher on, in the morning on the way out the house, the dishwasher has a 3 hour delay, so comes on after the laundry is finished. Unless it's a really bad day, the day time power usage never exceeds the PV generation.

And whilst the oven (which is electric) does go on generally in the evening when the PV output is low, so does take from the grid, I never use the dishwasher or do laundry at the same time. (If I need to wash something in the evening, I'll do it in the sink by hand).

Re: A Great Innovation...But...

You need ventilation in the house.

I live in a new build (two years old), and the house is A rated on the EPC, all the latest regs etc.

And most of the windows include air vents, to enable a constant through draft into the house.

The only time they get closed is in the middle of winter, or if it's storm conditions outside. Otherwise the house would get far too stuffy too quickly.

Re: Storing excess solar energy

I've got an Immersun 2 installed (with a 4kW solar PV system). and am very happy with it.

It monitors the grid power usage/feed-in (earlier versions were basically a fancy timer).

If you are producing more power than the house needs, AND if the immersion tank is not up to temp, then it pushes the excess power into the tank rather than the grid.

It controls the voltage to the element, so the watts is flexible, and tends to be anywhere between 100W, to 2kW, depending on time of day, weather conditions etc.

While the water is warming up, you have a net of zero Watts on the grid power. (The Immersun 2 will not take power from the grid, not unless you manually override it anyway).

Once the water it up to temp, the excess power is all pushed back onto the grid again as normal, until the thermostat trips in again, and so on.

So essentially, free hot water....

Re: "Their numbers allowed for the fact that jobs such as delivery drivers would disappear."

Quote: "But you will still need someone to get (usually) the right boxes out of the back and hand them over at the appropriate addresses."

I suspect they'll do the same as they do now for these automated drop-off/pick-up locations you get next to supermarkets etc.

i.e....

The van would basically consist of set of mobile electronically secured lockers. Swipe/tap the card you paid for the items with, or us a an app etc. And the locker with your stuff in it unlocks. Take your items, close the door, and the van heads off to the next delivery.

The issue being things like access, or the size, weight, number of items

i.e. Having to leave the house/office to do the collection from the van yourself. Having to limit the weight/size, to make sure it's something you can actually pickup your self.

No good of course if your housebound etc.

Perhaps these new White 'Auto' Vans, could include a delivery drone in the back?

Re: A solution for the wrong problem

@ Charles 9

Quote: "When the Steam OS comes of age, nVidia and AMD will make Valve bend over. Valve needs them for good graphics performance. They can stick to Windows."

Windows is slowly dying as a home OS, with the number of tablets, Macs, Chromebooks etc. increasing, people are now becoming more used to using alternate OSs on a regular basis, to the point where the OS itself, almost becomes transparent, or irrelevant to the regular user.

As cross-platform apps and cloud storage becomes the norm, the specific 'OS' you are on, becomes less relevant.

Both nVidia and AMD would want,even potentially need, Steam OS/Steam boxes to succeed, as it would increase their GFX card sales.

Also nVidia partnered up with Valve to help create Steam OS, even updating their Nvidia GameWorks suite to support the new OS. Their Steam OS (i.e. linux) drivers are now on par, and sometimes faster than the Windows versions 9and much faster than the Mac versions).

Mine is about 25% slower :-/

I moved house a little over a year ago.

To a new build, on a new estate, that is about 30% closer to my local BT exchange than the old place was, and I am now just round the corner from the same main road that the exchange is on. (So not just physically closer, but almost a straight line down a main road to get there).

Yet, my internet (ADSL) went from around 18Mbps, and a solid speed 24/7, to around 13-14Mbps, and is noticeably slower in the evenings.

It also always seems to take a while to initiate any new connections, doesn't seem to matter if from PC or phone, to a web site, or some service accessed via an app. Fail first time, then straight through a few seconds later :-/

Re: Speaking as one of the afflicted, anything that helps is OK in my book.

I've got an Rift DK2.

Playing an FPS, like Half Life 2, which basically has minimal HUD, so the full screen is moving about as you move in game, I lasted about 10-15 minutes before starting to feel ill :-/

But playing Elite Dangerous, where you're sat in a cockpit, which is effectively static in relation to your virtual body (although you can look around), with all the real 'movement' outside of the window, I've played for several hours, without any impact other than some minor eye strain.

My understanding is that the cockpit basically grounds you in the VR setting, and your brain is quite happy with this, as the cockpit movement, matches your real head movement, The fact that the ship is moving around in the VR environment, doesn't seem to cause an issue, unlike an FPS game.

Would be interesting to see what HL2 is like with the false nose?!

Re: Is this a lost in translation

@ AC re 20mph areas.

It depends on if this is an actually 20 mph speed limited area, or a 20 mph zone, there is a distinction.

If it's a 20 mph speed limited area, then the same rules apply as any other speed limit, in that the road should (normally *) have two signs, one each side of the carriageway, to denote the beginning of the new speed limit. ( * There are some exceptions, but they are rare).

If it's a 20 mph zone, then all it needs is a single sign to state you are entering the 20 zone, but this zone must also have traffic calming measures in place, to stop you from doing over 20.

If you can't see the signs, the speed limit is not legally enforceable. Although this depends on if this is 'on entry' to the new speed limit, or a repeater sign for an area you're already in. (If it's a repeater, you are expected to already be aware of the speed limit).

For reference, my home desktop, which does have an SSD, spends most of it's boot time doing the BIOS start up bits, (about 7 seconds) once the actual drive kicks in, and the OS boot starts for real, that takes about 4 seconds.

Re: virgin on the ridiculous

I had a Sky branded modem a few years back, that was also a Netgear (white thing, about the size of a hardback book).

The firmware was customised by Sky, so for example the login was fixed as 'admin' and you can probably guess the password! It also had things like the DNS options hard-coded to only use Sky's DNS servers, so you couldn't select a 3rd party DNS service.

It also had bugs, for example if UPNP was enabled, the router would run slower and slower, and eventually hung a few days later (I'm guessing a memory leak or similar).

Turned out that Netgear themselves had resolved the UPNP bug, plus others, some years earlier for that router model. But Sky hadn't bothered to update their image, ever as far as I know!

I ended up running some tool to extract the ADSL settings, and then flashed a stock firmware. Resolved all the issues I'd had at the time.
