PC BUILDERS:. I've installed two Arctic PWM POST fans, linking them back to a four port chassis fan header. On boot, the fans move a cm, then stop. Tried them individually, exactly the same. Any ideas? I've got an Asrock motherboard.

+John, please stay calm. It's alright, I can handle this.

+Barry Smith, +Michael Moya Could you have a look at the backup JSON files with a text editor and see if there is actually something in them? You can also paste the contents into for example https://jsonformatter.curiousconcept.com/ to see if the JSON is somehow corrupted.

If you find issues it would be helpful if you could share the files with me (email to uwe AT seriesgui.de).

Side note: it is sometimes possible that Google Drive has revoked the permission to access the backup files. You will then have to re-select them with the file pickers. Though in this case the error message would be "There is no readable backup file.".

Just finished watching a video on my Nexus Player, tried to go BACK to the front Plex Screen and it says "There are no Servers available". I check on my Nexus 6P and from the web on the server itself and exactly the same. Try the 'help section' that it recommends which says about logging out. This works for the web, but not for the phone and Nexus Player, which I have to totally wipe the install for (CLEAR DATA).
What the hell is this all about? Plex has become very buggy of late and it's not good. I like to chill out whilst watching my tv series, not getting stressed trying to work out the bugs!

Ever since I updated a few weeks back (Version 0.9.16.4 ), Plex doesn't refresh half the time, I have to go in manually and hit refresh, even tho it's on ervery 30 min

It's bugged out on me once whilst watching remotely, but could have been the internet connection. It seems to be more stable.

In the last few weeks Plex (NexusPlayer) has been finishing random episodes with an error message saying that connection has been lost with the Plex Media Server. But it hasn't, you can click CANCEL and watch it again just fine.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Turned out mine was about the Locale, somehow it ended up being a US Locale in the Plex Settings, but my Local was GB something or other and it clashed and messed it up. I've changed the Plex Locale to a GB one and it seems to work now. :)

Since I updated to Version 0.9.16.4, I've had constant crashes midway thru episodes, saying the plex server is not available, when it is and it can be RETRY'd and it continues fine.

It started when I upgraded, like from the first thing I watched. Either way it's a bug. Will check the articles.

Well, I tried, I've flashed CM 12.1 on my Nexus 5 two weeks ago and updated at least every two days via the in-built mechanism.  Every single day it experiences a go-slow, rendering the phone un-responsive for upto fifteen minutes before it goes back to normal and it does this multiple times a day.
I know CM is free, but I expect it to be usable, which it is NOT!  I'll be flashing back to Android M Preview 3 at my earliest convenience!

That is rather extreme after every nightly update.

30something getting on with life...
Introduction
I'm a 30-something with an avid interest in anything IT.  

I'm particularly into open-source software / companies, those that promote positive ideals and not just ripping the money out of the wallets of people who are addicted to tech/gadgets.  

I prefer Linux over other OS and Android over other Mobile OS.  I do this because they are predominantly open-source and they stimulate people to try and improve.  

I will ALWAYS prefer products/services that have the following Terms & Conditions: [You may do what you want with this product/service, you may try to improve it, copy and pass it round your friends, do what you want]

I welcome people from anywhere in the world, as long as they A) Don't have their head stuck half way up their rectum... B) They speak to me (and post mostly) in English...

Please note that I do not use G+ to specifically make new friends. I use it to share information, news and see what goes on in the world.  If I regularly interact with certain people on certain topics, so be it.  So do not tag me in a message like "Hi +Barry Smith", as it will not get answered.

Had a leaking pipe (from the sink to Washing Machine), had been advised it could be just a washer, but didn't have a clue more than that. Overton Bathroom Centre provided a washer after showing a pic on my phone and explained what probably needed doing was able to disconnect the hose and replace the washer. Leak sorted.

We went here for our first baby scan. The experience was generally good, was seen within 10 minutes of our appointment time and it didn't take long. I'm not however impressed that we could not take our own pics/vids of the scan. I would really like some official justification as to why we are prevented from doing so.
