@bitpirate I am not a warhammer fan at all. I just enjoy, with popcorn, to see them argue. GW is only in it for the money, not for worldbuidling. That was moved over to Cublicle 7.

@bitpirate A few years ago I went back to MTG... and I gave up after a year. It was expansion after expansion... Yuck! Include Hasbro into this, as I am sure they demand this, as otherwise they aren't profitable.

I am not a big RPG or wargaming guy, but I do enjoy the smaller companies; Modiphius, Free League, etc.

And for my MTG needs? Forge

Do these protestors even understand what they say?

"Burn the US down", while freely protesting on American soil?! Give them a one way ticket to any place they would like to go...

Flamenco v3.5 was just released, introducing MQTT support, reducing the number of "refresh" buttons in the add-on to just one, and showing an overall farm status in the web frontend.

And there is more! Check the changelog at https://projects.blender.org/studio/flamenco/src/tag/v3.5/CHANGELOG.md

You can download Flamenco v3.5 from https://flamenco.blender.org/download/

Flamenco is Blender's Open Source render farm software.

Is the AMD/ATI Radeon 7600M XT usable for AI/LLM? I do not see mention of the M(obile) variants in any of the AMD support announcements.

@gbraad@mastodon.social avatar

@ashcrow that is pretty much the same I found. it is confusing...

Considering an eGPU setup... but so far not sure if an M-setup will work well. (Have several ThinkCentre Tiny's with TB3 and my main work laptop with TB3). Don't want to invest in a bigbox again; don't want to use the space and the cost of running it.

Don't forget 'last season' Germany was great too, but got split in two.

Cloud on the Anbernic RG556 is quite OK. Sure, driving in Forza 5 wasn't a success, but playing Wasteland 3 ain't a problem.

While the RG556 is a great / platform, it has a big flaw when it comes to TypeC support; it will NOT do HDMI and charging at the same time. It is using an external display OR charging... not both! Hopefully a software update, but I doubt... This means that the Baseus Steam Deck docks I have are all not working with this device (but works with Samsung devices and a Deck of course).

I’m looking for a “thingie” to hand #WiFi access points ~0.5m from the (metal) ceiling. It’s something like this.

What is this called, and where can I buy this?

gbraad,
@gbraad@mastodon.social avatar

@yeri usually they are for some reason; we had to buy several for projectors and even those are quite expensive and quite common (they are articulated, so that might contribute to the cost).

Example: https://www.marquest.com/product/marquest-universal-conduit-drop-ap-mount/ for a single mount! outrageous.

gbraad,
@gbraad@mastodon.social avatar

@yeri almost feels like a repurposed projector mount ;-) If the access point has screw holes for wall mounting, it might even work that way. And those are a lot cheaper!

gbraad,
@gbraad@mastodon.social avatar

@yeri projectors used to be 10+kg...though DLPs nowadays are much less. We had about 4 in use for classrooms. Each mount was about 70¥. So this is insane... But have you asked the access point vendor for recommendations?

gbraad, (edited )
@gbraad@mastodon.social avatar

@yeri expensive. PVC is not necessarily a wrong material. When glued it can take quite some load, and APs are usually just a few hundred grams. It flexes, won't break that easily. And does not have interference (with the signal).

But when a walmount is about a fourth of the price of the as actual device they must have cheapish hardware or very luxurious plastics in relation.
