The thing that kicks me about printers is not the "electromechanical" part, that in my experience works fine. It's printing to the loving things.

It was 2016 when I bought my [decent brand] multifunction printer with the goal of having a thing on a network I can print to and setting it up was a complete shitshow, often requiring multiple power cycles to get it to work which kinda defeats the point.

It actually works *better* on wifi than on a wired connection, and the feedback from it is godawful.

Edit: Also this only seems to be affecting CPU architectures in between Sandy Bridge and Coffee Lake (so like the 3000 series to the 7000 series?), so if you are still running a 2550k on your home PC like I am then you shouldn't see any problems.

When you say "in between" do you mean inclusive? As 3000 series are Sandy Bridge.

Also what's your source on this? I can't find any detail.

Yeah, this is because you have Sandy Bridge-E and the HEDT/server socket chips are out of step with the regular desktop and laptop chips by 1 generation. Sandy Bridge Socket 1155 is 2000-series, but Socket 2011 is 3000-series along with Ivy Bridge Socket 1155. Ivy Bridge Socket 2011 is 4000-series along with Haswell Socket 1150, and then Haswell socket 2011-3 is 5000-series like Broadwell which didn't even have a full desktop release...

It's a mess. Thanks, Intel!

a British "Public School" is equivalent to an American "Private School", No I don't know why it's like that.

Because they're "public" in the sense that they're open to students other than local kids, so a similar sense to "public house" (and equally archaic) rather than "publicly funded".

But remember that this company had to be threatened into losing you as an employee before they were willing to budge. The competitor was willing to offer you everything you wanted based on your resume and interview. They might have a bit more respect for you out of the gate.

Very possible, but also possible that they were so wrapped up in their own lives and objectives that they needed a little jolt to remind them that their well-performing employee existed and shouldn't be taken for granted. We don't know they were "unwilling to budge" before because we don't know if Oyster ever asked for these things.

During my last reviews I specifically stated that what I make is not sustainable, especially on 3% raises that were handed out. My boss responded that he had no control over it and in fact didn't even know how much I make, which I was a bit dumbfounded by. When the SVP called he quoted exactly what I make and asked specifically if matching the other company would be enough. Seems like I just needed to get to the correct people.

I'm so glad they finally pulled their heads out of their asses and started supporting 802.3af/at like every other reasonable vendor.

This is still a point of confusion for me, their docs are inconsistent about which models of their cameras do and don't support active PoE with or without inline or AC adapters. Their datasheets disagree with their own knowledgebase entry.

Grounded is not the same as electrified? I'm confused.

They're big metal panels for absorbing radiation, so yeah grounded is best to reduce reflection but there's no "stable electrical field" unless there's something I'm missing.

I'm sure it's grounded. Heck, the comms cabinet in my house is grounded, took five minutes.

Data point: I have aluminium heat spreaders in my suspended timber floors for the underfloor heating, and they function very well to block wifi and cell signal even though I don't want them to, and no effort was made to ground them.

Try sitting a metal tin on a rubber mat, putting your phone in and calling it.

So, when I was doing tech support for UBNT, there were four of us doing support for them, total. This was... 5-6 years ago. Their camera system and their TUFF Cable were our bane, as tickets about them NEVER ended well.

At the time, the Camera team was a bunch of people in Lithuania, and the NVR team were in the USA. These guys basically didn't talk to eachother. The cameras wanted to stream video, and the NVR wasn't even a dedicated NVR, it was just a software package you installed on a standard PC. So if you had more than a couple cameras set to record at once, you would only get SOME of the video because the cameras would fight over the connection to the computer, and the NVR didn't care, it just recorded whatever made it through the network bottleneck.

This was a known issue, and had been for several YEARS. Their solution was to start designing their new NVR box, rather than figuring out how other security camera systems worked.

Thanks for this. To answer your question as to why anyone would buy their cameras is that I didn't know any better so I was planning to, now I am not. Ubiquiti is still pushed hard by the home networking thread here and without a point of contention like this why wouldn't you buy everything from the same vendor?

chin up everything sucks posted:

But during this multi-year period they kept selling these cameras as security camera systems, and we would constantly get people emailing in saying "Hey, I need some video for legal reasons and I can't find it..." and our response was "If you can't find it, it's not there, this system doesn't work with more than 3 or maybe 4 cameras at once".

They sell them in packs of 5
