Re: Remote access of networked machines

I will say with TeamViewer I could not change the resolution. It would be stuck on a low resolution. Anydesk I can change it. The rig I tested it on was running Windows 10, but I'm pretty sure it works on my Windows 7 PC with discrete graphics cards. It runs headless and I have to remote into it oft...

Didn't realize the team was running this. I switched some of my rigs over to it late last night.

Re: Remote access of networked machines

Ah, I have never ran teamviewer on an Intel HD graphics processor. All my rigs have a GPU of some sort running on it. With that being said. ...I was wrong on that. I do run one system with HD Graphics. I was just checking to make sure my next statement was correct in that you can change the resoluti...

Re: Pfizer/BioNtech covid-19 vaccine looks encouraging

I just heard a radio broadcast interview with the leader of an immunological and vaccine research team of Berlin Charité.

Re: Remote access of networked machines

What are these "dummy monitor plugs" and why are you using them? I don't have any dummy plugs on any of my remote machines and they all work just fine. I've only used a monitor on them to initially set them up, but once I did that nothing is plugged into the GPUs. Also, you can edit the cc_config an...

Every percent counts. ;-
In drag racing they call this "stacking tenths," referring to arriving just a tenth of a second faster at the finish. One small change may not seem to make a difference, but many small changes do.
When in doubt, just put it on the bottle. :lol:

Re: Remote access of networked machines

I ditched TeamViewer a few months back because I got tired of them flagging me as commercial use. Before it wasn't that difficult to get it over turned, but the last time over a week went by and I still wasn't able to access some of the rigs despite going through the "im using these personally" hoop...

Definitely SIL fault there especially if the girl knew something was off and told him but he did nothing. Most girls don't know crap about the workings of a car and how dangerous something like that can be.

No, haven't used them. After I cracked the screen on my other Pixel I just got on google and looked up used phones. Found backmarket and gave them a shot. Didn't bother cross shopping or looking else where for better prices or anything. I felt $350 was a fair price for an immaculate Pixel 3 XL 128GB...

Well I do recommend backmarket, but check the phone when you receive it to make sure it's what you ordered. Both phones I got from them were in excellent shape cosmetically. Just the first one was a 64GB model when I had paid for a 128GB model. They refunded me 100% with no hassle. Just took about a...

Yes, the phone in the OP finally stopped working completely. On a road trip to a new job the phone went into an endless bootloop and nothing I did could stop it. That phone is gone now. I used Backmarket to order a Pixel 3 XL 128GB black model again and received what I ordered for around $350. Been ...

I've been following this since the first damage that happened to to.

They think the way the cable is anchored is flawed. Which means all of the cables may end up breaking unless they can fix them.

With a second cable breaking it's not looking good.
