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.


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

cat /etc/samba/smb.conf

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
   browsable =yes
   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.



too many

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

and run

aptitude update
aptitude -t jessie-backports install nvidia-driver

aptitude -t jessie-backports upgrade linux-image-amd64 linux-headers-amd64




NVIDIA X Server Settings_001

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)

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
