How do you typically get your media these days?

Things have changed a lot over the years. I miss WinMX where if a search didn't have what you wanted, you could search again tomorrow when different peers were online. These days, when I want to watch something, I first check justwatch.com to see if it's on any of the streaming services that I pay f...

Re: Plex

My ISP is a phone co-op for a rural town with a ton of farmers. I'd be surprised if one out of one hundred knew what an ip address is. I'm hoping to convince them that I just need roughly 1/6,500th of an ip address, and I'll gladly pay that portion monthly. (Rounded down to the nearest penny, of cou...

Re: Plex

I learned recently that I don't have a public ip address, so using Plex remotely is tricky. I'm natted. My ISP ran out of ipv4 addresses and isn't doing ipv6 yet. I'm going to try to find a tech at my ISP to sweet talk, because the sales guy wants me to pay $10 extra per month to get an ip address. ...

Re: Plex

If it helps, there are more people than tvs in the house. (It was a close one. I had to count to be sure.)

Re: Plex

I got Plex installed, and it was super easy. Tested streaming (Roku TV app) and that was also super easy. I guess it's time to set up a server. That Synology looks like a good deal. I don't know if I could beat the price by much just by cobbling together a new computer. This is a good excuse to get ...

Re: Plex

I'm going to give it a shot. I think I've got Roku on every tv in the house, so it should be painless for everyone else to connect.

I've been looking for an excuse to set up a "backup" server instead of just some spare drives in my desktop.

Re: Plex

I've been thinking about getting Plex set up. It's a pain when that movie you want to watch isn't on any of the dozen streaming services you pay for. It would be a lot easier if I could just source the video (from somewhere legal and totes legit, of course) and then stream it elsewhere in the house.

Re: Clean Keyboards

I've run standard keyboard through the dishwasher before. I've only done it 3-4 times, but it's always worked after drying for about a week.

Re: Happy 7th Anniversary CMX

Congrats, Battye!

I tried to log on, but couldn't access the site from the hospital. (don't worry, good news) I even tried to set up an ssh tunnel to the house so I could get around it, but couldn't convince the web server to give me the right page.
