If you use Ubiquiti’s UniFi line of products, they recently released version 5 of their UniFi management software (current version at time of writing is 5.0.6).
This new software adds in a slew of new features, You can get the full list here. Some of the key items are an updated UI that is also “mobile friendly”, a new more advanced and better looking AngularJS based HotSpot portal and editor, and updated UniFi AP firmware.
If you’re using Exchange Online for hosting your e-mail, and using a custom domain, you should probably check and see if you have DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) configured.
DKIM is a configuration that allows a receiving domain to verify that an e-mail was sent from an authorized user and domain and was not modified in transit.
By default Office 365 / Exchange Online enables DKIM for self hosted domains (things like domain.onmicrosoft.com), but that doesn’t transition over to your primary or vanity domains… so for example, my domain, santsys.com did not have DKIM enabled, but my registration domain, santsys.onmicrosoft.com was enabled.
GAMDIAS sent me the GKC1001 Mechanical Gaming Combo to check out… and let me tell you, I’m really shocked how much I like it, especially at the price point of $70 USD.
The GK1001 combo includes the Hermes Lite Mechanical Keyboard and the Erebos Lite Optical Mouse.
Hermes (/ˈhɜːrmiːz/; Greek: Ἑρμῆς) is an Olympian god in Greek religion and mythology, the son of Zeus and the Pleiad Maia, and the second youngest of the Olympian gods. – wikipedia.org
Erebus /ˈɛrəbəs/, also Erebos (Greek: Ἔρεβος, “deep darkness, shadow”), was often conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; for instance, Hesiod’s Theogony identifies him as one of the first five beings in existence, born of Chaos. – wikipedia.org
Recently I noticed that my system had a USB hub that was reporting an error (Code 43). There were a couple USB ports on the back of my system that were not working and that was about it… Nothing else was really “wrong” with the system. So I contacted ASUS support…
GAMDIAS recently sent me out one of their Hephaestus gaming headsets. This is one of their top of the line headsets, that is rocking a very affordable price tag.
Hephaestus (/hɪˈfiːstəs/, /həˈfɛstəs/ or /hᵻˈfɛstəs/; eight spellings; Ancient Greek: Ἥφαιστος Hēphaistos) is the Greek god of blacksmiths, craftsmen, artisans, sculptors, metals, metallurgy, fire and volcanoes. – wikipedia.org
The Hephaestus is sporting 7.2 channel audio (there is a “woofer” in each ear) with a reported frequency response range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, though, my ears could only pick up 20 Hz to 19 kHz test tones. The Hephaestus also provides quite good audio separation between all of the various channels in a 7-speaker surround sound setup.
If you are used to using older versions of DSM on your Synology NAS hardware, and use the SSH functionality, you may know that to get “admin” access you needed to login as “root”.
To do this at the SSH login, you would simply use the user name “root” instead of admin, or another user. Now, in DSM 6.0, you do not use “root” you simply need to login as a user that has admin access. Then you can use sudo like standard Linux. You do need to make sure that your user account is an admin account…
I recently got my hands on a GAMDIAS Ourea optical mouse as part of a promo package. This is a low cost, entry level gaming mouse that offers a good amount of features, specially for the price point.
In Greek mythology, the ourea
(Ancient Greek: Oὔρεα “mountains,” plural of Oὖρος) were progeny of Gaia, members of the Greek primordial deities, who were the first-born elemental gods and goddesses, children of Gaia – wikipedia
There aren’t a lot of articles out there on this problem, since I think it’s pretty specific. But hopefully this will help someone else out.
I recently purchased a new LSI MegaRAID 9361-8i RAID controller for a new server. It’s not going to really utilize the 9361-8i to any of its real potential, but I wanted a card that would be fast, reliable, and last for a long time. I thought the 9361-8i was going to be that, but then after installing it and booting up the system… I happened to notice that the heatsink was getting REALLY warm.
