I can't even find the new one(s) so I guess I can't complain. cheesy

Oh, you mean these links?

You didn't put any link on the forum:

I don't see that blue bar. Or at least not with the learnable membership link in it.

[attachthumb=#]

I think Stephen was saying that there is no special affiliate link on the Learnable site. It just links directly to Bluehost.com. No affiliate link is used so that Bluehost will show the Learnable offer.

^ how does it 'run on air' tellme

I'd guess it runs on compressed air (CO2) cartridges, like paintball guns. And also it doesn't look like it moves very fast. Some of those shots looked like they were done in slow motion, but I think they were actually full-speed.

One nice thing about the C1 over the RPi/2 is the gigabit ethernet. I was planning to use my C1 as a Plex media server or other Owncloud/NAS type device, and I thought having a fast connection to the network would be really useful for that.
Can you hook storage to it in a way that's fast enough that gigabit matters?

It has the following storage possibilities: USB 2.x, MicroSD UHS-I, and eMMC.

Thanks. That disc image is half a GB smaller than the 9926 one I downloaded two months ago!

I wanted to give a couple of people donations - if I 'make a donation' does it all automatically go to the site?
or do I have do donate to the site after getting the credits, if you follow me.

Once you click the link in the email confirming your donation you get your donation as DonationCredits which you can disburse as you see fit.

Thanks for an amazing 10 years! I've never been an active member of any other website or group for as long as I've been a part of DC.

With other sites/groups, my life or interests often take me in another direction, if the community itself doesn't become hostile or stagnant first.

This place is really special! Kiss

One nice thing about the C1 over the RPi/2 is the gigabit ethernet. I was planning to use my C1 as a Plex media server or other Owncloud/NAS type device, and I thought having a fast connection to the network would be really useful for that.

But so far I haven't gotten Plex or Owncloud to work on the C1 how I want them to. Plex refuses to transcode videos because the image I used to install was built for a TV box system with poor CPU capabilities. IMO the C1 can handle transcoding perfectly fine. I converted a 90+ minute mkv to mp4 format in about 2 minutes just to test. I'm sure the C1 could transcode and stream without a problem at that rate. And for Owncloud, I was following a tutorial that had me customize things a bit (by using nginx instead of apache) and somewhere along the way things didn't work as the tutorial said they should.

So for now I've just got a $35 Mumble server. smiley But I keep playing with it.

Yeah. I think the C1 still has slightly better specifications than the RPi2, but the RPi is a lot more widely adopted/supported, which means that you're more likely to find ARMv7 software that works with the RPi as opposed to having to figure out how to configure and compile things from source yourself for the C1.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: List of 40 inexpensive single-board Linux friendly computers on: March 21, 2015, 09:42:26 PM
I did get one. Though now with the Rpi2 which has similar specifications, it's much harder to choose between the two.

Windows 10 makes disabling UEFI Secure Boot optional:

http://www.extremetech.co...t-other-operating-systems

That is to say, Microsoft required an option to disable Secure Boot previously, but now that option is optional with Windows 10, meaning some hardware may not allow you to install non-Secure Boot OSes.

If your Windows 7/8 install is considered invalid, you get nags and your wallpaper turns black. It doesn't say that exact thing will happen on Windows 10 but it doesn't say it won't.

But I know people running non-legit copies that don't have warning screens or wallpapers blanking out. The OS gives no indication that I know of that the copy isn't legitimate. Does that mean they'll upgrade to a legit Win 10?

No ISO yet.  You have to do the update method:

https://www.tenforums.com...ew-windows-10-builds.html

This doesn't work for me. I can't get build 9926 to update to 10041. The instructions in that link don't do what it says it should do. I don't see a "Preview Builds" tab in Update & Recovery when I follow the instructions.

When I check for updates I see something called something like fbl_impressive_10041 Professional and a Windows Defender definition update, but both of those things quickly disappear and it says "your device is up to date"

I wasn't able to update my Win 10 preview using Windows update. It tried, but said there was an error and that my previous version had been restored.

I think once you upgraded and got a license key, you could then find an ISO online somewhere and install fresh, using your spiffy new license key. But I could be wrong about that.

Link to portable version still isn't working for me. Maybe you should host it somewhere more reliable. Like a dcmember server, or Google Drive/Dropbox?

And here is the results, on a serious, in-depth article on cloud computing. Try to read it with a straight face.  cheesy

I'm only a few paragraphs in and already it's hilarious! Thanks! Thmbsup

I asked for a special portable edition (no installer needed) which I still have. I could mirror/host/post it if needed.

Did i beat 40hz to post about this?  Wink

This is an RC (Release Candidate) release. Not the official, final, stable release. I'm not sure 40hz would normally post about betas or RCs. smiley

But thanks for posting. Cool news!
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful on: March 18, 2015, 02:05:24 AM
Quote from: all of the paragraph
There will be a transition period of two release cycles (12 weeks total) during which unsigned extensions will only generate a warning in Firefox.

After the transition period, it will not be possible to install unsigned extensions in Release or Beta versions of Firefox. There won’t be any preferences or command line options to disable this.

Installation of unsigned extensions will still be possible on Nightly and Developer Edition, as well as special, unbranded builds of Release and Beta that will be available mainly for developers testing their extensions.

I don't want to run an unstable Nightly or a Developer Edition, nor do I want "special" builds just to run some extensions. If I'm going to go for special, unbranded builds, I might as well go for IceWeasel or Pale Moon or Project Spartan.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Looking for good cheap car stereo with bluetooth on: March 18, 2015, 01:55:49 AM
I got two of these JAM Plus Portable Speakers which can connect to each other for stereo sound and play music via bluetooth.

Not quite the same thing, but they work just fine with my BT devices and sound pretty good, IMO. But I'm no audiophile and I never listen to the radio, so I'm not sure my car even has working speakers.
