Re: Brand NEW IBM PC AT 1988

Remember when a 40 Meg hard drive cost almost $200 retail and was considered huge?

Re: MXStudio - unofficial respin

Pragha is a very basic music player that doesn't have that many features but somehow I find that it just sounds nicer in its default settings than Quodlibet (which sounds muffled by default, IMO). Even after tweaking the graphic equaliser in Quodlibet, I can't get the sound to be as crisp and clear...

Re: Mozilla exec says Google slowed YouTube down on non-Chrome browsers

It should be instructive that Google supports so-called "net neutrality", but is just fine with crafting a software implementation that gives it a competitive advantage over competing browsers.

Re: Routers and Linux

For my version 2 e2500 it wasn't too difficult, although the 30-30-30 resets involved are a pain, and for the features I wanted I had to then upgrade to a different build (you can't install it first). Looks like the version 3 that you would probably find now is a bit harder. https://wiki.dd-wrt.com...

Re: Routers and Linux

I've had the ASUS RT-AC68U for almost 2 years now. Love it for a host of reasons. - Browser based set up and management (including firmware updates). - Linux based so 3rd party firmware is available - Asus firmware very stable and still receiving frequent updates. - Not one but two USB ports.

Re: Vudu Streaming Service on MX?

Yeah, most of what I've found on the internet via Google search seems to be old news. Some references to needing Silverlight, but since that's old info I have my doubts that its accurate.

Re: Vudu Streaming Service on MX?

Hasn't seen that site before. However, the real value (to me anyways) for Vudu are the "free" movies that are available there and change each month. No rental payment required, and you just need to put up with a few commercials to watch them.
