Yes, I know that this place is kinda.. um.. BIAS lol... but still. Maybe you guys have some pearls of wisdom about the Flip? Maybe someone here actually chose to upgrade their desktop instead of their Chromebook? And anyone tried to run Unity (is that even the latest?) on the new Flip?
 
Help me Choose my next Geek Upgrade

//If you see this on Facebook, try the Google Plus link to actually make a vote

I got $300 something from the State of NJ for insurance money I never picked up (turns out you can file for "lost money" they have a new website, and it actually works, I'm a proof, link at the bottom if you're curious)

$300 is not the kind of money that will save me from debt (ha, two lifetimes won't save me from my student loans, I made peace with that long time ago) so I decided to go with the next best thing: upgrade old tech.

**In corner #1, we have a new video card to replace my 2014 Radeon R9 280. It still serves me well-ish, but it starts to show its age especially with new games coming in, and besides, doesn't have supported new drivers for Linux, which is what I'm running now. The new one is the gtx 1060.

Why is it good: supported drivers for my main computer, ability to play new games and enjoy, finally a good reason to open HedwigTwo (don't ask) and find the gnomes that must be hiding in the mountains of dust in there. This will also make a good stable upgrade for my current Linux setup.

Why is it bad: My favorite games still work, and even though I like me a new game here and there, I mean, current setup works just fine for my daily needs (besides the annoying screen flicker here and there). Also, it's a bit more expensive.

**In corner #2, we have the new Asus Chromebook flip, a highly praised new device with a touch screen which means it's ready for the inevitable ChromeOS/Android clash, and a good replacement for my aging current Samsung Arm Chromebook 2, with its poor charge and ARM chip (a Linux no-no, long story short).

Why is it good: with a flip of the screen, this thing becomes a big table and allows me to read horror in bed (if I ever get to it). It's new with a new battery (old Chromebook's battery loses charge within a day or two), sharp HD screen to finally enjoy writing posts such as these with touch interactivity, and it's cheap enough to leave some money in the bank.

Why is it bad: Between my home desktop and my work Mac, I barely ever get the chance to actually use another computer. This doesn't mean I shouldn't MAKE the time to get away and use it, but you know, I just don't. Besides, they'll probably come up with something better next week.


Come on people, help your favorite geek (you know it's me) choose! :)

The only reason I wouldn't choose the GTX is because I got a 780 for free after my brother upgraded to a pair of 960s or so. But not everyone needs a desktop, nevermind one with serious gaming chops.

Weekend Geerkery

Q: How do you use Firefox on your old Chromebook in order to work on your personal wiki, which happens to be an HTML file on your main computer at home?

A: Install Ubuntu on it, and then run Xwindows on it via SSH. And.. it works.

:D

Allo, Crickets.

I couldn't sleep last night (happens a lot lately) so I reached for my phone and read some tech articles. Turns out, Allo, Google's new chat app, was finally available. Excited, I went to download the APK because I couldn't wait. It's not like I was sleeping or anything anyway.

It was good to see that Allo can take over SMS messages on my phone. Well, at least in theory - I still get SMS into messenger, and the breakout from Hangouts is still messy. Still, I was happy to message my friends and coworkers: unlike Duo, the other new chat app from Google (for video chats only), I actually could use Allo to get in touch with people because texting is something I do way, way more often than video chatting.

And here's where I encountered the same problem again: No one wants to download the thing.

My close friends who have iPhone are used to chat with me over Hangouts. They refuse to have yet another chat app installed on their phone beyond iMessage, Facebook Messenger, and Hangouts. I don't blame them. One friend actually was up for the task, she downloaded it, replied to me, and realized she can't keep chatting with me from her work computer. "Bummer," was the last text I got from her about two hours ago and. That was it. I think this IS it.

Allo looks great. It's basically a WhatsApp ripoff on steroids. It is light, easy to use, and easy to install. But no one needs it, and none of my friends or co-workers are going to install it, because of the two reasons I named above.

I want Allo to work. I'm warming up to the idea that Google should simplify chat and just make it work... but, not like this. I can't keep texting people from my phone all day. Even WhatsApp has a web client, and of course Facebook.

Well, I guess we wait and see.

+Manor Perets​​ there's one thing that even WhatsApp has: a desktop client. It kind of sucks but it works. I can continue my conversation where it stopped. This is The problem according to my non-tech friends. This is where they drop the ball. They realize that on top of adopting yet another app, now they have to keep talking to me on the phone. This is a major problem at work, and to me also a major problem at home, where I use my personal computer.

And another thing that I have to say about WhatsApp and my family across seas: we use it for phone calls. I've tried to push my overseas family, which in general tends to feel a phone call is more intimate than a video chat, but it didn't work. With WhatsApp they just click a button and there's a phone call starting, similar to hangouts. With Allo, we're talking a different app yet again.

Allo feels like a glorified toy that requires patience ans a new routine. Google is trying to push our communication into separate boxes instead of creating one fluid experience. And that simply doesn't work.

Restrict a group from emailing another group

Hello admins,

I have a group of teachers in charge of each grade level group. There's a concern that the students can email the teacher group and a request for students to be blocked.

The problem is, if I turn on the option for "only members of the group can post," this blocks everyone else in the organization, including adults and faculty from other groups who need to email the group specifically.

What would be a good solution? is there a way to only block the students group? What do you guys do in such a case?

Thank you!

+Liam W You are correct, if you exclude the group from the directory, initially there is no auto_complete, UNTIL they either receive o send an email from/to the group... (They obviously wont be able to send an email unless you tell them the group exists, and what the email of the group is), but there is a simple solution:

What I did, if I don´t remember incorrectly, was to send an email to each google group in the institution (welcoming members and asking them to read the footnote of the group, which mentioned the reason the group has been created, who is supposed to use it, etc etc).
By default, the email address of the group will then be saved on the gmail contacts of each user within the group, therefore, whenever they intend to email the group, the autocomplete function fill work.

+Shay Shaked Thanks for sharing your solution! Will try it out whenever I have some spare time.

Would you use a Mac OS or Windows as your Secondary Choice?

This is not so much about which one is better, because I think we can all agree Linux is our first choice, and besides, depends on what you need out of the OS...

So, this is exactly it:
If your secondary (or main, maybe?) computer is Windows, why? If it's Mac OS, again, why?

Is it work? Is it what you know and comfortable with? The company? The products? How do you use it? What for?

Share your opinions, and as a bonus, let me know what things you find in your preferred secondary OS that work with your Linux setup as a whole?

+Mark Walter possibly. Limited hardware support is an issue though. For MacOS you either need a Mac or something very similar to one.

Gaming Upgrade!

Yes, this is not exactly IT pro, but based on my discussions here I think at least some of you play games, and since you know your stuff... well, you know your stuff.

I got a check in the mail from that state, as turns out they owed me around $300. To me, this sounds about the right price for a good video card replacement. This is what I currently have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131570

it's been a couple of years, you know?

I've been looking at this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GeForce-GTX-1070-Founders/dp/B01GO0I93O/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

it's more than what I want to spend right now, tbh, but it gets close.

My current PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095

I have no additional cooling, btw, I'm wondering if I need to start thinking of investing in that too.

So, since I'm on Linux right now, Nvidia in general is more supported and I want to switch. I don't really want to go back to Windows (Steam for Linux is not too bad), but I might, to play some of the recent games, which I usually don't. This means I'm not looking for top of the line screaming tech here, but I do want a nice upgrade that can at least do games from 2015 on high specs. We're talking action games, I know RTS and such need more CPU power, but I think I'm ok in that department.

So! What do you guys think about:
* A good video card in the $300 range.
* My current PSU intake and do I need to upgrade for suggested card
* Do I need to start thinking about cooling

and oh, I almost forgot.. I have a pretty big rig, but for some reason the card I have right now is basically touching both ends of the box. It's odd, not sure how to explain it, but it doesn't seem like a bigger card (form factor) would actually fit in. So something of the card mentioned above or smaller is important.

Thanks a million! And sorry if you feel this is not exactly the right place, let me know, I just wanted your expert opinion.

+Shay Shaked I didn't recommend a 1070, I said the 1060 is plenty unless you are looking for super high res gaming :)

As for cooling, +Some Random Guy​ touched on it and I elaborated above. Short answer is, if your temps are fine don't worry about it especially if you aren't over clocking. Your i5 should be plenty for most games as is, especially paired with a 1060.

I ask about the new Chromebooks here regularly at this point (once every couple of months) and I love the feedback and advice I'm getting.

I'm interested in a Chromebook that can also run Linux, and I prefer Linux Mint as I feel most comfortable with it for now.

Currently Using an ARM Samsung with 4GB of RAM (Chromebook 2 I believe it is). As far as Chromebooks at this point, I'm interested in a touchscreen HD display, backlit keyboard, and probably 13inch screen even though I can go down to 11 if I have to.

My attempts to run Linux on this computer worked, but the Linux experience wasn't that great.

Those of you who run Linux, especially distro with Cinnamon or Mate or one of the equivalent that have a pretty polished GUI environment, what are your specs? What would you recommend?

I really like how the HP13 look like, but the no touch screen is a deal break with Android coming out. The Dell one actually looks pretty inviting at this point... but my price point is.. err.. not that good.

So what do you think about running Linux with a Chromebook, and which one, with the specs I want?

Expect Less. Pay More

(This is a long vent that, I hope, is somewhat comical. It is not my usual spiel, but I just had it in me, so, screw it. Enjoy?)

So I went to Target yesterday to look for a Vacuum. Our Vacuum is practically dead and can't hold a charge anymore, we have guests coming in today, so with the rush, there was no time to shop on Amazon.

I had a couple of items I wanted to buy as well, so I figured might as well just go to one place and get them right away, right? Wrong. Very wrong. Just wrong. Just, don't do it wrong.

I must have spent three hours in that place, looking up for maybe five freaking items. I mean OK, I stopped and look here and there, there were some interesting things, like that white noise machine -- you know, the kind outside of your therapists' office or a conference room where they have a meeting behind closed doors and about to fire someone? That kind of a noise machine. Think about this for a minute. This is a machine, and it makes noise. This is all it does, ok? Noise. Machine. I looked it up, the thing is $50. Fifty bucks for a plastic cake-look-alike that sits there, takes away an outlet and make noise. Dude, when I was growing up, we had free noise machines everywhere. They were called kids, ok? You put them on the floor, give them a couple of toys, and there you go, noise. You know what? Put that kid next to a door, and you have yourself - gasp- a freaking door stopped! I know, I know, it's revolutionary, you don't need to buy a door stopper AND a white noise machine anymore. You know what? Use the kid to as a door stopper long enough, and the kid will eventually learn to hold the door for people instead of slamming a freaking glass slate framed in steel back in their faces! Now we're talking. I think it's called manners or some crap. Anyway, it's free, kids gets some education, you got yourself a noise machine and a door stopper all in one. Doesn't even take an outlet.

OK back to Target.

So I'm lost there, I swear I had to ask twice about where the freaking vacuums are at because for the rest of America Vacuums are under "home" and not under "electronics." You know, the rest of the country that actually lives in a house, with a backyard, and two noise machines? Well, I live in the freaking city ok, and over here a home is anywhere big enough to sleep standing. There is no "home" section, hell, there are no sectionS as in plural, there's only one section! a whole closet is a home! The store is in the middle of downtown Brooklyn, you'd think maybe they'll use more sense, like put Xbox games under "games," vacuums under "electronics" and freaking noise machines in the kid's section, with this long return line, which we'll get to in a minute.

I finish shopping for some more crap (like scissors for nails, which are under makeup section, between artificial eyelashes and mascara, because this makes more sense than putting them in the, I don't know, foot health section? I mean, what are you using these for, cut your artificial eyelashes? So why the freak did you buy them in the first place?! Does this make sense to you? I mean really, these have professional nail care written on the package! Makeup section! Are you saying I have freaking ingrown nails on my FACE??) , and then it's time to do this other thing I didn't do for a while. It's called a waiting line - Or a queue in British, which honestly always made more sense to me, because anywhere else a queue is exactly that, but if things were to make sense I wouldn't write this long vent - and you stand there while people chat and take their stuff out of the cart, just so they can be scanned and placed in bags to put back in the carts, which then said people drag 20 feet to the exit, and take them out again, because 20 feet is too much to carry bags which you're going to carry all the way home anyway.

Then I realize I have to carry this new Vaccum with me. Some quick math tells me that if I take Lyft back home (because screw Uber, they cost twice as much), I would have already spent $40 bucks more on this Vaccum than I originally intended (because it was $20 less on Amazon anyway, plus free delivery), so I'm like, screw this, and take the sucker to the subway which stops 12 blocks away from my home, because the regular subway line doesn't work, because it's a weekend, and we all know that weekend for MTA basically means "we don't give a shit this is the only time in the week you can actually go places and do stuff."

Fine, I carry the package all the way with me, I'll spear you the details of the complex calculations of how to angle it just right going up and down the stairs of the subway stations, but let me just say it's mortifying, because the looks you get from people when you put it in front of you when you stand in the car are of pure rage. And I understand, I mean we already covered this whole standing-sleeping-space in this city which applies to the subway too, but here's another thing. You know how in other parts of this country people have cars (yes, we have them in Manhattan too, and they come in either green or yellow, and we don't drive them), and with cars, there's this road rage thing? You know something, it occurred to me people need to have some sort of road rage, because there's definitely subway rage. I mean really, you get angry for no reason. I can sit on a bench and someone who just doesn't look right to me - you know, their shoes are different, or their hair is messy - I get this expression on my face that spells dread and rage and frustration, and I'm all ready to be offended for a lifetime, because I just know this dude is going to start asking me for change in 10 seconds. And he didn't' do anything! Dude can just wake up one morning and forget where he put his other sneaker, this happens to me all the time, so he puts another one on because he's late, but when he goes on the subway car suddenly the homeless alarm goes off in my head? And I hate that I'm like that man, I want to be a compassionate human being and all, but I have a freaking 4 feet of a box between my legs and I'm competing for angry looks on the subway with this guy, and all I'm thinking is "at least my shoes match!" Yeah, that's what the city did to me folks, a freaking vacuum between my legs, and I'm proud that I can wear a matching pair sneakers.

So I got home an hour later, even though Target is 20 minutes away by taxi, unpacked the vacuum, assemble it, put the battery in the charger, and.. nothing. The freaking @#$%$#^T thing is DOA, that's dead on arrival for ya.

The thing is DEAD, ok?

Yes, I know you're supposed to charge the battery before, and believe me, I did, because why otherwise I will be here writing this long-ass vent, if it DID work, eh? So let me reassure you, it was "charging" the whole night, and no, it's dead, dead is in even the "charging" LED light would not turn on, dead as laughing in my face for the extra money and effort I put into getting it in the first place.

That's right. My main reason to visit Target this weekend was to buy this thing, and not only it cost me more than it would ever cost me on Amazon where I wouldn't' even have to deal with carrying it, now I have to return it. I'm going to put it right there, get my money back, and buy the same damn thing the way I should have in the first place, and it will get here within two days without aggravation. The only thing is, I read on their website that "electronics"might be a problem and I will only get store credit for that. I didn't check yet, but I'm telling you, if this thing has shifted from being "home" to "electronics" for the purposes of returning it, I'm going to whack someone on the head with it. I'll use my store credit for bail or claim self-defense, I was attacked by stupidity.

Anyway.

I hope this is the last time I'm going to go there to buy anything. Their slogan is my favorite part: expect MORE. Pay LESS. Wow, this just begs to be reversed, don't you think? I mean what can be a better example? At least I got this post out of it, which you know, I have to thank the neighbor's white noise makers machines for. Well, technically they're Chinese, and now I feel like crap that my joke earlier about "white noise machines" is actually racist, because, does it mean there's such a thing as a black noise machine? And is black noise bad? Look I'm not SAYING it is, I'm just thinking, who came up with the term of "white noise" anyway? We have white lies also, so does it mean black lies are bad? Is our language racist? I mean of course it is, it was manufactured by a bunch of white folks who spoke latin and a bunch of other white Anglo-Saxton folks, and then some French folks and what not. So next time you say something like white noise, just stop, stop right there, and say noise. It's a noise machine. And I think this works even better for the whole kids' metaphor, so bonus points. Freaking yay.

I have to stop here because it's been like an hour of venting all this stuff and I have people coming, so I need to pretend I'm not grouchy and be all nice... :)

Thank you for listening!

ROFL! Three points I like to make:
One) Take a deep breath and chill...before you murder someone.
Two) I would have asked a neighbor if I could their vacuum.
Three) Try to avoid department stores, especially really big ones. As Admiral Akbar says, "It's a trap!" They purposely try to get you mixed up by "hiding" items wear you least expect them just to keep you in their trap and spend more $$$$. I heard of people who found skeleton remains of those that went in and never found their way out.

This is Why I Won't Switch to a Gaming Console
 
Borderlands 2's days of glory are gone, but this is still a fun game. Now you can get it with 8 addons, all for 10 bucks. That's what I'm talking about... Not to mention, I can play it on Linux (and it plays better than on Windows). If you haven't heard of Steam, you should check it out even if you're an occasional gamer. The best games (= those that require some brain, not just point and shoot) are constantly on different sales, and you might just find something you like. My current favorite is City Skylines.

Classic diner experience, with warm staff and hot meals. There's a sitting area for small groups in the back, and the stools are inviting after a long train ride (it's right across the station). Come get a discount if you're a motorcyclist, or an MTA employee!
