Re: CricketMX online for 20 YEARS!

I hadn't thought about jmstacey in years!

It's weird to see my old posts from when I was a very young adult and think about how much the world has changed since then.

Re: Plex

I normally don't watch any of the content that they host. The ads are excessive. Where it shines is if you have a media library saved up from years of digital hoarding. Movies and TV that are stored on my PC are easy to watch on my TV or phone. You can share access to your library to a friend and le...

Re: Plex

I caught it on sale a few months ago and got the lifetime Plex Pass. Still don't have a static ip. If Netflix starts to hassle my brother for account sharing, I might downgrade my account with them and spend the extra on getting that ip.

Re: Steam Game Not Showing

Step 2 from your article is likely the best approach. If the game is somehow not compatible with your computer (maybe it only works on Windows or on Mac) then it won't show up by default. Good luck.

Re: Big Thread of Spam Bots

I wonder if LoganHand is a spambot. It would be a clever approach to hiding blogspam, to post a question and include a link as an example of having done research. https://forums.cricketmx.com/viewtopic.php?t=6834 The link that he posted is 3 pages deep in my search for "steam game not showing i...

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.
