    Fibre line uptime

    So I've had my Openserve fibre line almost 1 year now and since the install it has not been down once. Pretty impressive. I run my router and ONT on a backup 12v battery and that lasts about 12 hours+ so the router and ONT never goes off even during loadshedding or power outages and the line...

    Nordvpn vs socks5 proxy

    NordVPN actually allows quite a few connection modes one of the suggestions is using socks5 proxy with torrent clients. Using Nordvpn client and using VPN as the connection mode my connection is slowed a bit to about 14MB/s max download rate. Using Socks5 proxy setup in qbittorent and...

    Google drive mounted in Windows/Linux

    Anyone using google drive mounted as a drive in windows or linux? I actually set it up today and it's pretty decent. The fact that google has a JHB node makes it so much better especially for the 1Gbps fibre line users. I tested some 80GB .mkv files playing from the mount and it's pretty...

    I have a PC with an old Asus crosshair v formula motherboard. Plenty of PCIe 2.0 ports spare. I doubt I will be able to boot from the drive when I install it but the adaptor does say it is backward compatible with PCIe 2.0 and 1.0 x 4. Obviously I'm going for a budget NVMe which is the Silica...
