You need a DC-DC converter. Start with a power supply that can feed your highest voltage device (15.7 vdc) and then use buck converters to produce lower voltages you need for the other devices.

"...without securing funding."

This is how FTA funding works. The majority of the funding will come through as long as transit and Little Commie Keller continue to ensure that the project meets all of the appropriate pre-established criteria. As soon as the system is operational, FTA will cut us a massive check.

We will not be "financially fucked."

Seriously, where are you getting your information? The amount of misinformation about this project is crazy.

Gotta love all the people downvoting . Hey r/Albuquerque this person never said they agreed with the ART project they were just brave enough to provide you with correct information. I know it doesn't go along with your hate everything related to ART narrative and so you are compelled to mass downvote but please stop and actually read it.

The downvoting doesn't seem to be specific to only one viewpoint. My replies challenging /u/GloriousKoala to defend is views were also downvoted to oblivion. Apparently name-calling is a valid debate tactic and I tried to take away someone's toys. *shrug*

I am looking for a hardware replacement for the Windows bluetooth stack. Basically, using Bluetooth headsets (Bose QC35 II and Jabra Elite 65t) with Windows in a conference call scenario will cause my laptop (HP Zbook G3) to hang and eventually crash. During troubleshooting the issue, I have come to find out that loads of people have problems with Bluetooth under Windows and the problems are rarely solved. So, what I would like to find is a hardware dongle that will pair to a Bluetooth headset, but present the headset to Windows as a USB audio device, which removes the Windows bluetooth stack from the equation. Does such a unicorn device exist?

As others have stated, the RasPi doesn't have the CPU resources to transcode in real-time and that is Plex's killer feature. That said, if you carefully manage the types of clients connecting to Plex and disable all transcoding, the Pi 3b+ will be a passable plex server. I would strongly recommend you store the media on a SSD or a separate device

My SDWAN fabric was sitting at 16.2.1 and after a lengthy call with Viptela support on the matter, they suggested that we upgrade vManage to 17.2.x, but leave the fabric devices at 16.2.10+ as 16.2 is a long-term support release with the most regression testing. From what I have seen, the biggest advantage of 17.2 is strictly the reporting and GUI template improvements for vManage.

**EDIT: English is hard sometimes.

Your best option is to reach to Cisco sales to discuss viptela sd wan and they either assign you a person or direct you to viptela sales team

I second this. I have a direct Viptela sales rep, as well as a dedicated Cisco rep. The Cisco rep can usually get me quotes and and support answers faster than going the Viptela route.

I have to agree with the post above. The OM is past it's prime.

I suppose so. Most of the hipsters and related economic activity has moved up to the Midtown Crossing area. I still really like Upstream Brewery and Old Market Passage.

Old Market Passage is great. Trini's is where my wife and I had our first date. V. Mertz is where you can take wine snobs from the Bay Area and watch them get sexually aroused by the wine menu. Not an Upstream fan. Food is so so and we have had bad service there.

The OM will always have a place in our hearts, just that when I can go 20 blocks and have good food, or a 100 blocks and have the same quality food, I just can't motivate to go there.

Funny story. When my daughter was 4 years old, we had some family friends from out-of-state fly in to stay with us. They wanted a "really nice steak" while there, so we took them to V. Mertz. As is common with young parents, I hadn't fully thought this through because my daughter is a SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPER picky eater. When we arrived, we asked if Chef could make a grilled cheese sandwich for the kiddo....and he did: A grilled Brie on artisan granary bread. I have never seen my picky eater destroy a meal like that. She attacked that sandwich with the same eagerness as if she'd been asked to go for a ride on a talking unicorn. 10/10 would go broke for another meal there.

Neither were free. The healthcare is already paid for by our existing taxes. Extending Medicare for all was the trigger to bring down healthcare pricing to the point where the existing Medicare taxation will cover the per-person costs. Buying in volume, yo.

With respect to "free college", that was to be paid for my taxing wall street transactions, specifically short selling. The idea was to tax sources of revenue that do not contribute to society, hence the direct reference to short selling.

You understand that the whole “tax Wall Street” idea would destroy our economy and drive down investment, right? Why are you socialists so against the free market?? It WORKS.

  1. You don't know me so it is asinine on your part to ascribe descriptors to me. I am no more a socialist than you are a purple monkey made of prison-grade crystal meth.

  2. The rampant risk taking on Wall Street is already wreaking havoc on our economy. Were you asleep during Enron, the Savings & Loan scandal during the 90's or the global crash of 2008? Wall Street is only "working" because the tax payers keep bailing out the risk takers.

  3. I disagree with your sentiment that taxing Wall Street would destroy investment. Despite all of the bleating by Fox News/InfoWars/etc... Bernie never intended to tax all investments. The idea was to tax only high-risk activities, like short selling. The tax would cause short sellers to think twice about that unproductive activity. Yes, it would slightly raise the cost to enter the market, but the market likes stability and anything that reduce abject risk taking would be a net good for the markets.

  4. The other part that no one talks about is why the current cost of college is so high. If you look at the cost of college over the past 40 years, it has grown several orders of magnitude faster than the rate of inflation. Why is that? In 1958 the federal government started offering low cost loans and grants to make college more accessible. Almost simultaneously as the loan interest rates dropped, colleges started raising tuition fees because the market was flooded with cheap money. I am not advocating that we remove student loans and make it hard for people to go to college. If you make state college subsidized, attendance at the price private schools will go down, which will drive down the cost. Until you break the student loan-tuition cost feedback loop, the cost of tuition will continue increasing without a basis in reality.

Easy now. We don't know what he had before. Also, low tolerance to alcohol doesn't make you a pussy just like acting like an asshole on reddit doesn't make you a badass. Keep in winning, friend.

could OP also use a MOSFET or transistor, etc connected to GPIO to trigger the fan?

see more
1 point · 2 months ago · edited 2 months ago

Yes, but why would you want to do that? You only use a mosfet to switch when you want to switch that fan on/off. The op stated no such requirement. If we wanted to get fancy and tie the operation of the fan to the temp of the CPU, then you'd absolutely be on to a good idea, but that's not what the OP asked for. Also, switching that mosfet requires current in addition to the current required to spin the fan. What is the value add being able to switch the fan on/off if it is only going to worsen your power envelope?

Totally correct, depending on useage, there might be loadsavings over time if the fan goes dormant for longer periods than it is turned on. Maybe better so with a PNP or NPN? Constant-on, I see OP and your side.

If you are using the RasPi in such a way that can let the fan go dormant for several hours, you are doing it wrong. ;)

Why 2960-XR? If you are looking for an access switch, the "barely Layer3" 2960-XR is an overpriced nightmare. The 3650 is more expensive when you factor in the cost of the stacking modules. I have deployed a ton of the 9300 switches and you cannot beat the performance or the value for money.

If all you need is a layer 2 access switch, skip the 2960-XR and buy a pair of 2960-X + an RPS for redundant power. If you need Layer 3 capabilities, I'd buy the 9300 everyday and twice on Sundays.

This. The XR isn't worth it if you need just a L2 switch. If you need L3 then go 9300.

see more

The other thing going for the 9300 is extensive API access that simply doesn't exist on the 2960 and 3650 product lines. Now that I have a huge fleet of Cat 9300s deployed, I am only now starting to realize the programmability of these vs traditional management of the older product lines. It's a brave new world, folks.


I have an issue where sometimes when I update my vSmart policies, they are not pushed out to the vEdge devices. The problem seems to be consistent with the vSmart itself because app-route and data-route policies act the same way.

I realize that this is a 5 months old question. But I figured I gotta ask in case someone else is looking. Are you using cli or feature policy?

And the reason for the problem was a bug in vSmart v16.2

At the time it was CLI, but I have since moved to feature templates.

Whats wrong with you? Use 4, or 8! The simple omni antenna, and also panels, are made for channel 6. But 6 is always full of noise. At least if you are not on a country side, with nearest neighbour a mile away. So choose nearest free channel besides 6 but 2 channels apart. Easy!

Upgrade your Plex server to version I just did this and my plex server is now correctly recording all scheduled 2018 Olympics programs.

Update: There is a bug in this plex version. If you start watching an in-progress recording and then back out of it, you won't be able to resume watching that program until the recording completes. :(

Darn, after Plex didn’t record Shaun White last night. Is that the beta channel or current Plex Pass version?

Thanks. MoCA won't work for me because my house was wired in the stupidest way possible. All the cable jacks ---- with one basically in the exact spot where I'd want a cat5 --- wire back directly to the pole! Yes, directly to the pole. There is no disconnect between my house and the incoming Cox lines. It is the stupidest thing I have ever seen.

see more

Just because your house was wired in a dumbass way does not mean it needs to stay that way. My house was wired in a similar fashion. So, I found where the coax cables enter my house, dug up the dirt and found the bundle of cables. I used a toner to figure out which cable is the one that goes to my cable modem and then cut the rest right there in the ground. Then I put a below-ground utility access box and then plugged all of the cut coax cables into a 1x8 coax splitter. Some deft scouting on eBay turned up a bunch of TiVo Bridge MoCA adapters or $50 / each. I now have roughly 500 Mbit/s of throughput between any point in the house.

Would a local cache at both ends be what you are looking for? There are storage products that do this and would support you in the endeavor. Or you can go the free route with something like BitTorrent sync.
