Re: What hardware are you using?

i bought a couple of those off Ebay last year So did i. I owned a "rockboxed" Sansa back in 2015, but it died the same year. I first thought the problem might come from the SD card. After swapping between 3 cards, i realized the problem came from the player itself. Was disappointed because i really...

Re: What hardware are you using?

Another thing i like to have while i'm going on a hike is an MP3 player. The problem with smartphones or Hi-Res players is battery life. I've looked thoroughly for a player that would give me the best autonomy and found one that has 70 hours battery life. It's small, light and has 8Gb onboard flash ...

Re: What hardware are you using?

Sure, i could throw the netbook to the dumpster, buy a Rapsberry Pi 4 and run an emulation distro on top to play retro games. But a mini PC means a new monitor and these cost real money. Plus : you can't play XP games on a Pi. I'm really pleased to run AntiX on this machine : this distro does an ama...

Re: Small USB drives

Back on the topic 8 months later with bad news : both Eivotor USB sticks are dead. After some research, it might be the SMI controller that failed. Flawed component ? Now i know the reason why they were so cheap in the first place. On the other hand, i own a Transcend 16Gb USB key since 2008 (yes th...

Re: Single-letter forum posts issue

New user lock : i agree with that. A few weeks or even a few months. This way, people have to think twice before hitting the [Submit] button. This is a good habit to read several times what you have just written before posting. Then, after the "Trial" period is over, users have gained enough credib...

Re: Intranet Search?

Very good sounds like ZoomSearch engine.
I've tested this and it's an efficient and reliable program.
I'm considering to buy a license sooner or later to remove the trial limitations (50 pages/documents max).

Re: [GAME] Free Orion

Didn't knew about Master of Magic . I'll try this next week. Have played Free Orion 50+ hours this week and it's a great game. I'm playing along this strategy guide lines and it's okay. The game AI is really aggressive, so for a starter, you might want to put it at a lower level than the default one...
