    Connecting Old Consoles on New TV

    Update... Thanks again for the guidance from everyone. I purchased this model from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019T0WFA4/ Last weekend I tested it out with my Atari XEGS, and it worked flawlessly. It was honestly much better than I expected. Pacman, Joust, Archon, Frogger, and Dig...

    Forcing Chrome browser to cache (and keep the cache) for a site

    This kinda sounds like caching directives are not present from serverside response, or directives are being honored in slightly different ways depending on the browser. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Cache-Control

    Re-Thinking (or overthinking) Embedded OOP

    My C++ knowledge is limited, but.... based on your explanation, a base class with virtual methods/functions would be ideal. If you wanted to provide tighter rails to the implementation, then a base class with protected and/or abstract methods/functions could give value by providing a similar...

    Connecting Old Consoles on New TV

    Yea, a few consoles have RF out and a RF modulator could be an option for the Gamecube. Quality would be YMMV, of course. At minimum it is a solid "Plan B" that may be good enough for what I am wanting to do. Unfortunately, no -- my model doesn't have the digital A/V output. That could be a...

    Connecting Old Consoles on New TV

    I have a few old video game consoles that I'd like to introduce to my kids -- Atari XE, NES, Genesis/CD, Gamecube. Our new TV only has HDMI inputs. So I was wondering what adapter(s) this group uses to properly connect older game consoles to newer TVs -- and have it still look decent. My TV...

    OpenVPN Configuration Help Needed

    I did goto the internal/private IP address for my Plex installation (i.e. IP:32400). However, the "plex.tv" work was likely possibly due to my Plex Pass membership and Plex timing out on those calls. I had forgotten about Plex's (paid?) feature for remote access, that is worth looking into in...

    OpenVPN Configuration Help Needed

    So I finished some initial tests, and here's what I changed: 1. Changed the OpenVPN IP range -- It was originally on the router's DHCP range (192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0). It is now set to 10.10.1.0/24 mask 255.255.255.0. 2. Applied settings in router, and bounced router. 3. Updated a few...

    OpenVPN Configuration Help Needed

    I am having some problems with my OpenVPN configuration, and was looking for some guidance. What I've done so far I am running DD-WRT v3.0-r44715 which I flashed on a router. (As of writing, that is the most recent build of DD-WRT that is available.) I wanted to setup a VPN connection into my...

    Redirect Audio from TV via ARC and External Audio Extractor

    My family owns a 55" LG TV (model 55UJ6300) and would like to use an external wireless headset with it. The headset has only analog 3.5mm connection. On Amazon, I see they carry small devices that can read the ARC signal from a TV output and extract the audio to an analog/toslink connection...

    Baby-proofing UPS devices and

    I had considered this as well. However, we are in a bit of a time-crunch because my wife is due with our second child very soon. And we're full on prep-mode for nursery, "go bags" for dogs and our son, hospital bags for us, etc. So I was looking to throw a little money at the problem, if a...

    SQL - where's my bottleneck?

    Can you provide a paste of a sluggish query along with the EXPLAIN results? That may provide optimization suggestions.

    Baby-proofing UPS devices and

    So my son is nearly walking, and we have an APC UPS unit (product link) in the living room, sitting on the floor, and tucked somewhat behind a TV stand. However, he is still small enough to get access to an end of the UPS and some of the power cords coming out. I'm trying to find a childproof...

    New development and gaming build

    The NewEgg specs did list a peak volume of 36 dB, so that seemed close enough to ambient noise. Plus, I will have some light music going while writing code and any games I am playing will have music. So given the sound level, my case, and the distance between me and the tower at my desk, I...
