7:11:21 PMtechstudier i noticed on a previous show of cat5 tv the plugin did not work during the test peace for the show is it broke
7:12:07 PMGarbee[m] Chromecast is built into Android. Not MiraCast.
7:12:30 PMtechstudier dream host still down
7:12:46 PMtechstudier sleeping robot
7:12:47 PMsparklyballs sounds more like a nightmare then techstudier
7:12:47 PMGarbee[m] OH MiraCast is it too. They just re-brand it a little.
7:13:05 PMGarbee[m] So ChromeCast is ChromeCast + MiraCast specifications.
7:14:10 PMtechstudier any one got plugin working on new kodi and how all my other plugin are working fine
7:14:48 PMsparklyballs i'm on kodi krypton with the plugin and watching the show techstudier

7:17:08 PMtechstudier krypton
7:17:12 PMSolbu techstudier: I'm watching on Kodi 17.3.
7:17:20 PMSolbu … on GNU/Linux.
7:17:25 PMGarbee[m] Wedding?
7:17:34 PMGarbee[m] I GUESSED RIGHT!
7:17:36 PMsparklyballs i'm using LibreElec
7:18:15 PMsparklyballs exactly one month today is exactly one week after my birthday SashaD-G6
7:18:58 PMGarbee[m] Do you have to ask if I've used Chromecast?
7:19:05 PMBobK54 chromecast
7:19:21 PMSashaD-G6 Happy almost birthday!!! Garbee , great guess!
7:19:23 PMTheFu UPnP - chromecast, DLNA here.
7:19:52 PMTheFu Chromecast is extremely specific on what video it can handle.
7:23:27 PMTheFu Anyone have a Plex Server?
7:23:28 PMsparklyballs for the new year countdown on my tv i just use a tv station lol
7:23:39 PMtechstudier i have the stream back thanks for your help guys i see the star ship enterprise
7:25:41 PMTheFu How's the battery life doing that?
7:26:35 PMGarbee[m] It drains.
7:26:47 PMGarbee[m] Remember, you're running your screen as it is to the remote device.
7:26:52 PMGarbee[m] So the screen needs to always be on.
7:26:59 PMGarbee[m] Which is the biggest drain on battery.
7:27:27 PMGarbee[m] Keep it plugged in when casting for long periods.
7:27:46 PMtechstudier portable chargers are very cheap now
7:28:11 PMTheFu SashaD-G6: Plus everything is video, so the screen will be on. That will use most of the battery ... but if you are gaming ... probably not much more. Thanks!
7:28:18 PMGarbee[m] techstudier: Only for devices that don't have fast charging.
7:28:28 PMGarbee[m] Fast charge devices can cost a little bit more.
7:29:39 PMsparklyballs we had a stick with a nail in it and that was our only toy RobbieF lol
7:30:48 PMRobbieF bahahaha sparkly!
7:30:55 PMTheFu pcpartpicker.com

7:32:45 PMtechstudier did a boot scan using avast
7:33:05 PMTheFu Never mix your public persona and your blackhat personas. NEVER. SecOPS is hard.
7:33:51 PMTheFu HenryBB: I had/have a pet rock - srsly. It was a gift.
7:33:53 PMTheFu ;)
7:35:23 PMGarbee[m] TheFu: gaming and casting may slow it down some.
7:35:27 PMHenryBB That just sounds amazing...
7:35:31 PMGarbee[m] Your FPS on device will suffer.
7:35:49 PMGarbee[m] RobbieF: That is completely unproven currently.
7:36:03 PMGarbee[m] The US Government hasn't shown any evidence of him being a part of it.
7:36:17 PMTheFu RobbieF: That's a great story. Did you get any photos for future embarrassment?
7:36:19 PMGarbee[m] They're currently just claiming he is and interrogating him about it.
7:36:58 PMsparklyballs you don't let a murderer off because the week after he helped an old lady cross the road
7:37:40 PMTheFu SashaD-G6: If you don't want banking data leaked, don't ever, ever, ever, use a smartphone.

7:38:47 PMtechstudier ssd drives are getting alot better than when they first arrived they tended to fail fast

7:40:11 PMTheFu Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon going down the freeway.
7:40:14 PMsparklyballs i had a vic20
7:40:25 PMBobK54 I HAVE some Vic20 tapes downstairs right now!!
7:40:29 PMSolbu Linus Torvalds did, I believe.
7:40:33 PMTheFu I used cassettes on a TRS-80 color.
7:40:53 PMTheFu Had a QIC-80 and QIC-250 and 4mm tape drives.
7:41:01 PMBobK54 I also have the tape player for the Vic20. I dont throw out anything. :(
7:41:56 PMGarbee[m] Wayland is default for 17.10 and they will assess whether to keep it for 18.04 or revert to Xorg by default for that.
7:41:59 PMbenrob0329 Wayland doesnt support recording :-(
7:42:14 PMbenrob0329 (Via OBS)
7:42:14 PMtechstudier also with a early cartridge slot fitted to the vic 20
7:42:17 PMTheFu BobK54: I have some 4mm around here somewhere.
7:42:20 PMGarbee[m] Right now, they are going for collecting the most data to prepare for the LTS.
7:43:01 PMtechstudier memory expansion to a amazing 64k
7:43:40 PMTheFu Kodi doesn't bypass DRM to my knowledge.
7:45:23 PMTheFu In the USA, tell police "I don't answer questions." If taken into custody, ask for a lawyer, food, drink and bathroom break. Do not talk about ANYTHING else.
7:46:09 PMLyndon a computer can be used for eveil too!!

7:48:29 PMTheFu Set in Toronto for part of it.
7:48:42 PMsparklyballs awful movie TheFu
7:49:33 PMBobK54 mediocre movie with a good cast; check out "The Circle". We're living it.
7:49:43 PMTheFu sparklyballs: have to ignore the plot and just watch the tech stuff.
7:50:28 PMtechstudier just finished a hyperspin front end arcade setup using mame works well off a memory stick
7:50:37 PMTheFu BobK54: about evil in Sweden?
7:50:49 PMsparklyballs they spent all the money on the cast with that one BobK54 and didn't pay for a decent writing team
7:50:57 PMBobK54 haha, agreed
7:51:57 PMErikas gratz sasha
7:51:57 PMBobK54 The Circle (2017) was a dramatization of Google/Apple and how they have to get into every molecule of our existance.

8:07:22 PMErikas you can ship it to my house I live in barrie
8:07:27 PMLyndon Mother Board - ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA
8:07:27 PMLyndon Case - Corsair Obsidian Series Black 450D
8:07:27 PMLyndon Processor - AMD FX 4350 Unlocked Quad Core 4.2/4.3GHZ ---------------(Base/Overdrive)
8:07:27 PMLyndon Ram - Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 CL10 DIMM
8:07:27 PMLyndon PSU - Corsair CX550M
8:07:30 PMTheFu Solid, versioned, daily, automatic backups are 1000x more important.
8:07:54 PMLyndon easy to setup too
8:08:23 PMtechstudier looking forward to the build
8:08:31 PMLyndon me too
8:08:42 PMLyndon =)
8:08:53 PMsparklyballs corsair psu are solid have one in my server and it's never let me down
8:08:58 PMLyndon Core i5 is fine
8:08:58 PMTheFu https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/HVyp99/magnificent-amd-gaming-build
8:09:23 PMGarbee[m] i7 for 4k+.
8:09:30 PMLyndon well ok
8:09:32 PMErikas nice chairs
8:09:42 PMLyndon im thinking budget
8:10:06 PMGarbee[m] There are some decent i7's for not too much more than an i5.
8:10:39 PMGarbee[m] The HT they add to i7's is super duper useful though to use as much of the CPU as possible.
8:10:43 PMRobbieF sounds like she's willing to pay, so i7+ is good
8:10:59 PMHenryBB Out of personal opinion, it's probably going to be around 1000-1200 :P
8:11:04 PMGarbee[m] Plus, building the good system now means it will last that much longer for them.
8:11:14 PMHenryBB i7 with good case and graphics
8:11:29 PMLyndon I try to reserve $$ for GPU but your right Garbee[m]
8:11:32 PMGarbee[m] RobbieF: Do look at the HW Leaderboard here: https://www.pcper.com/hwlb
8:11:57 PMLyndon I didnt even realize y'all were sitting
8:11:58 PMtechstudier good show guys as always
8:11:59 PMGarbee[m] Lyndon: General rule of thumb, GPU and CPU should cost about the same generally. And they're going up there in GPU because of the 4k push.
8:12:15 PMLyndon ahh, right
8:12:18 PMGarbee[m] SashaD-G6: https://www.pcper.com/hwlb
8:12:25 PMGarbee[m] Check that out when you can too to get some ideas.
8:13:04 PMRobbieF thanks techstudier
8:13:06 PMRobbieF oh
8:13:09 PMRobbieF goodbye then :p
8:13:15 PMSashaD-G6 Good night....and thank you all! :)
8:13:27 PMLyndon ok cya you guys
8:13:31 PMLyndon ;)
8:14:32 PMsparklyballs cya folks
8:14:33 PMTheFu I generally pick a $200-ish CPU, then work backwards from that for all my upgrades. Still using cases from the 1990s. Don't see any reason to blow $10 on something newer there.
8:16:10 PMTheFu Benchmarks suck, but they are better than nothing for comparing CPUs.
8:16:12 PMTheFu https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html
8:21:37 PMgarywhite TheFu: FYI, $200 in the US is about $255 in Canada
8:21:59 PMTheFu You mean CA$255?
8:22:50 PMTheFu I'm not into blowing my money on overpriced systems, just because (anymore).
8:23:35 PMTheFu But I can understand why some people might. Nothing wrong with it.
8:23:43 PMgarywhite My only tower is a P4 that boots very slowly into WinXP
8:23:49 PMGWG Did I miss anything?
8:24:50 PMTheFu GWG: No. Back from Manila?
