After installing and registering my Flight Factor 777 as soon as I powered it up I would get an “over speed” warning as soon as I gave the aircraft power and nothing I did would disable it.
This is easily fixed by installing the following package.
I wanted a System monitor, So I started looking at Monochrome monitors on eBay (£30 – £200). These were VGA and power-hungry and overkill for just a little Screen with stats on it. So I thought about a RaspberryPi and a 5″ screen, £15 for this setup. Then, while searching my desk draws and found an old Hudl tablet.
Just found this little tidbit,
create a text file called .hidden, fill it with filenames and folder names you would like hidden
pop the .hidden file in the root of the folder you want stuff hidden in and bam, gone!
How I set up plex, samba on a Debian 8 box
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server %v
netbios name = epoc
security = user
map to guest = bad user
dns proxy = no
path = /home/shares/anonymous
force group = plex
create mask = 0770
directory mask = 0770
writable = yes
guest ok = yes
chmod 770 -R /home/shares/
chown -Rfv root:plex /home/shares/
systemctl restart plexmediaserver
systemctl restart smbd
unless I’ve missed a step this should put all the users files in a plex group allowing samba to read/write to them.

I think I’ve worked out how to install drivers for the latest Nvidia Graphics cards
using backports and with a little selective installing, things are looking good :0)
add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main non-free contrib
aptitude -t jessie-backports install nvidia-driver
aptitude -t jessie-backports upgrade linux-image-amd64 linux-headers-amd64
After weeks and weeks of experimentation, I’ve come to this conclusion…
I don’t know if it’s SLI or not but both Nvidia 970 cards seem to be doing equal work (judging by the temps)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 13c2 (rev a1)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0fbb (rev a1)
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 13c2 (rev a1)
02:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0fbb (rev a1)
and this is the config I’ve used.Continue reading
