Re: Linux geeks thread

Check out the vfio kernel module. You use the vfio driver on the display you want to pass through. Then you can just add the pcie device in qemu the usual way. The performance is pretty darn good. To me the performance in games isn't perceptible. :shock: :bigthumb: I had no idea about vfio.. that's...

Re: Linux geeks thread

What do you use for performance monitoring at the terminal? I've investigated practically everything out there and Glances has to be my absolute favorite so far because it shows network and disk IO. 2020-11-30 14_53_57-Desktop.png Glances can also produce this awesomeness: 2020-11-30 15_05_26-Glance...

Re: Lightweight efficiency oriented BikeE conversion

It's only a matter of time before you try a suspended trike or velomobile. When you do, you'll like it enough that you will most probably accept the compromises using it on your roads entails and your other bikes will collect both dust and rust. You're goddamn right. :mrgreen: Honestly i thought th...

Re: Lightweight efficiency oriented BikeE conversion

Nah, i have the maxarya arriving tomorrow and do not have space for 3 recumbent bikes.

I'm going to chuck the Bike E on eBay for $300 an see what happens. As of writing there are, surprisingly, no bike E's for sale on eBay so i'm thinking i won't have too hard a time selling it.

Re: Lightweight efficiency oriented BikeE conversion

Well when i say MC tires i'm referring to the hutchinson spherus which is basically a thick bike tire with a harder motorcycle compound to carry high amounts of weight. I also have a Mitas MC2, used by solar racing teams, which has higher rolling resistance for sure. Shearing apart a trike front end...

Re: If you had the chance to start endless sphere all over again, what would you change?

First, I would make a mandatory rule that anyone who is a vendor or who works for a vendor must identify themselves as such. Commercial products are part of the hobby, that means many have a profit motive, and THAT means many serious issues. I have so much to say on how we can improve vendor relati...

Re: Lightweight efficiency oriented BikeE conversion

While i'm waiting for my maxarya, i've been riding the bikeE quite a bit. After experiencing the usual 1 flat tube per ride, i decided to cave and install a prefilled slime tire on the rear. I would say that the effect on rolling resistance is about as bad as a motorcycle tire, and the added 1-2lbs ...

It seems that you are being flooded with spam - some of it in cyrillic, I think.

Re: new larger lipo seems worse, is it?

Based on the datasheet, these cells look like they begin to get seriously stressed beyond 1C. You don't want to see more than 0.1-0.2v drop during load per cell, ideally. 2020-11-27 12_56_50-Window.jpg Per the included graph, it would seem prudent to run this pack at an average of 1C with up to 3C b...

It seems that most people are OK with / see value in OTD thus far. I'll continue to run this poll because i want more less frequent posters to chime in with their opinions. And now for my take. My issue with OTD is that there's a few personalities who make discussing things like politics in any rati...

Sounds kind of like www.badgerandblade.com This is the most well run forum I've run across in a while. It's a bit overmoderated and way too strict on their marketplace, but as it's pretty busy it might be necessary. They do their photos a bit different. They have a gallery. Interesting forum setup....

Seriously you need to see some substance to the forum before you want to join. Why would anyone be motivated after that popped up? I agree. That's an old feature that's hard coded into phpBB and it harkens back to the days that bandwidth was very expensive. That shouldn't be an issue on our old pla...

I like that OTD no longer shows up under "New Posts" -- a big improvement IMHO in usability and separating the wheat from the chaff. Yeah i recently did that, given that this is the last phpBB update we will have. I literally just hacked that feature into the code. OTD will show up in 'yo...
