    What's your latest tech purchase?

    I'm currently playing about with esp 32 kits everywhere around the house doing home automation so having something small and mobile is a priority wish I could have grabbed a pinecil but they just weren't available as alot of choice opensource stuff seems to be here. I've been looking at the pi4...

    If they're available go for the pinecil it's pretty much identical to the ts100 with the big difference that it has usb-c rather than micro and can use it for 20v 60w power as well as the power jack meaning it can run straight from a power bank designed to charge laptops which is pretty damn handy.

    What's your latest tech purchase?

    I splurged out again today No more clunky soldering station for me, sadly the pinecil isn't available here so I went for the old trusty. Need to pimp out the firmware when I get it and I have a stack of thermostats to macgyver for central control over the air conditioning from my server when it...

    Can anyone suggest a gpu (haha maybe without outputs would make it cheaper)

    Bump. So I've found some mini pcie coral edge tpu's that I can purchase but I have no idea what I should do with them. My server has no free pcie slots so I either try to use it with some sort of usb converter but that would be limited by usb2.0 bandwidth, not sure it would work but a mini pcie...

    GPU HDMI port won't fit/align with the case

    I've had some Thermaltake cases in the past with similar issues as dorsket said you could undo every screw fixing the gpu and motherboard down and tweak it all to give yourself a mm or two though personally with a cheap hdmi cable I'd be inclined to hack at it with a box cutter.

    What's your latest tech purchase?

    Some goodies arrived today, forgot to order a photocell but my outdoor weather sensor is almost done. I threw in a switch for a spotlight on the main gate for good measure. Waiting for the other two sticks of ECC which should come tomorrow but the NIC is holding me up as there's no point in...

    The TPU UK Clubhouse

    You could have stayed at my house in a picturesque village in South Wales it's empty since I'm away but logistics might have been an issue and it's a large contrast between a village with 2 pubs and the metropolis that is London.

    Windows 11 General Discussion

    People don't use cloud backups because they are just as likely to have issues as you are! Those of us who have data we need backups of generally keep external hard drives as keeping backups on a powered system isn't really a backup unless it's data that need to be accessed routinely which we...

    Depends on your security style, personally I don't bother but I'm behind a pretty rock solid firewall and do most of my browsing and downloads on a disposable VM.

    Easy2Boot. I can,t get it to work

    So personally I would still use Rufus, download the drivers you need as well as your windows xp iso and nlite, run nlite and impregnate the windows iso with the drivers you need then copy the new iso to usb via Rufus if you don't have any working usb you can copy the new iso to cd. This should...

    4 I only needed one extra really my server has 2 ports ,input output for pfsense and a port for home assistant/proxmox I could have set it up in vlans but I couldn't get into the pfsense cli once I installed it on proxmox. This is the lazy cheap way to do it think it cost about $8 and...

    Windows 11 General Discussion

    Might be some internal gladiatorial match between windows and Debian going on inside my network. I haven't tested it in the last few days as I'm only running pfsense till my ram upgrade comes, will find out after she gets her boost whether windows hates samba
