    Need suggestion buying laptop.

    I use an old E6430. I had a much nicer machine but my dog spilled a cup of coffee on my wifes machine and she confiscated mine...;) I found that adding a solid state drive and taking the ram from the newly destroyed machine bringing ram up to 16 gig it works well. The big problem is the GPU...

    Sync Not Linux Fans

    I think there are certainly pros and cons to using nextcloud. For me the data I am syncing between phones and PC's isn't that critical so I do periodic backups to a drive I keep offline most of the time. If I were running a business off of this I would go the cloud approach. Control comes...

    Changing your mac address and keeping the same IP if that is what happen would potentially cause a routing issue on a local router. The typical behavior when having a conflict is drop the traffic.

    got this is my mail box : Life's better together when you avoid Windows 11

    TPM securely store and protect keys. It identifies the hardware not a human being. The connection between a TPM and PII are made in a vendor database who undoubtedly received information from the end user in the first place. At best a TPM is like the license plate on your car. The plate...

    got this is my mail box : Life's better together when you avoid Windows 11

    Thinking of why someone would do this on the client side I would suspect its easier to implement. Spending the money to develop some sort of AI solution would be expensive. It would also be resource intensive to do on server side. Offloading that to the clients would be much easier. TPM...

    got this is my mail box : Life's better together when you avoid Windows 11

    Well I guess I don't see the ability to circumvent anti-cheat software as a great argument. Personally every system running in my home has a TPM. After having been burglarized a couple times its nice to know that my disk drives roaming about the country are not decryptable by the creep on...

    got this is my mail box : Life's better together when you avoid Windows 11

    From an information security standpoint I don't think my TPM is out to get me... :) I do. think that Microsoft is doing things to reign in the abuse of their licenses. Some of their activities are a bit intrusive for my taste but its no worse than other products. I tried out windows 11 and...

    Error with SeDiskOperatorPrivilege - NT_STATUS_NO_LOGON_SERVER

    I'm not sure what is going on but I don't think you were able to successfully join that machine to the domain. The directory does not exist message is just that you were not denied I don't think it exists. Your terminal prompt looks like what I would expect if you were logged in locally. It...

    Error with SeDiskOperatorPrivilege - NT_STATUS_NO_LOGON_SERVER

    With 20.04.3 you can automatically configure to connect with your domain controller at installation. You will need to have an account with enough administrative authority to join the domain. A lot easier than configuring from scratch. When you login with a valid domain user your system...
