Re: Creating a new Docker container, based on another one

If it works without changing topology, then I'm not sure that's a packaging problem. "docker commit" is the command you use to generate a new image after making changes, and I'm assuming there's a good reason for changing the entry point. Docker does have some odd rules about DNS resolutio...

Re: Putting together a quieter computer

750W sounds fine for that machine. There's fanless PSUs you can get in the 600-ish range which would probably do the job, but they don't come cheap, and since most decent PSUs these days have PWM fans that spin down when not under load, or like JAE said just get shut off altogether I wouldn't go the...

FLASH FLOOD WATCH!

WIND ADVISORY!

:roll:

I guess they're worried about the burn area to the north of here allowing for more of the rain water to runoff and collect than usual, but I can't help but think that a little rain and a little wind for a few days isn't really a thing.

It's not really that new. They made that change a while ago. Live chat is just another thing that's come to be expected even if it doesn't always make a lot of sense.

Re: Space Thread

Dark humor aside, the point was that you can't really get away from the Earth's gravity while still on Earth. Being stuck in a centrifuge is not the same as being in freefall. It doesn't compare to gravity in the same way. I'm sure the researchers know that, and they're just doing the best they can ...

Re: Space Thread

There's some question about the distance from Earth, also. The estimate from the Gaia spacecraft doesn't agree with the estimate cited in this study, but as the authors noted that figure may not be accurate if there is in fact a black hole in the mix here. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/newfoun...

Wikipedia calls it a facultative anaerobe meaning it can create energy from oxygen if it's present, but also switch over to anaerobic fermentation if it's not. Sneaky little bugger.

I did almost the exact same upgrade maybe a week ago and it turned out pretty well. I'd just check on the exact specs for the nano with respect to PoE. A lot of Ubquiti stuff started out using 24v passive PoE, but a while ago they did add support for other voltages. If you've already got a PoE switc...

It's most well known for the firewall, but it has other features as well. Some of them go beyond my experience in networking, so I'm going to refer to them in a hand-wavey, non-specific way. :P

Sounds like he had the GPU installed initially but pulled it to troubleshoot. Is the behavior exactly the same with the GPU installed? I second the recommendation to try outside the case.

Re: Need Advice On An Overdue System Upgrade.

That's correct. The board doesn't have its own GPU even though it has those ports on it. They aren't going to do anything on their own.

There may be something else wrong as well, but you're going to need a GPU in there somewhere if you want to use it as an ordinary PC.

Re: Help me finalize my new build

Check for an updated BIOS? Maybe your RMA board came from old stock, and didn't have the latest version.

Bad CPUs are a rare thing in my experience. They're usually either completely fine, or completely dead.
