I can add a link to the authors build page, but I am also thinking of doing some work on the build and profile section as well. Maybe some-way people can customize their builds rather than a long list. To regards of the power management, I agree something simple, like 1-5 should work well.
as for the 3D map, its work-in-progress. Ill post a picture when its a bit more developed. It based around the one in-game. I did want to add a filter option too it, but ill have to see how things go.
thanks for offering to help, but usually its easier for to work by myself normally. Its not that I dont want advice and suggestions, those are always welcomed. Its just that ive been busy with things, including a theory test and trying to finish off triple-elite. So havnt had so much time, plus time to myself. So hopefully you can understand.
I didnt hear about gitlab problem, that must suck for a lot of people. atm, I have a copy on my pc, another on a test-server and a removal drive. Just some arent quite as up-to date as another. In the past ive lost whole sites because the host deleted the site. So I learnt to keep backup's. Never rely on one source.
The test server I built recently is;
- X3360 Xenon 2.83Ghz Quad core,
- 8Gb DDR2,
- 500Gb WD blue SSD,
- Seasonic 600w,
- Onboard graphics,
- PCIe x1 gen 2.0 SATA 3.0 card,
- Windows 10 pro,
I knew some say it should be linux server, but I find windows easier to navigate. Its an old system, but didnt cost much to build - all in like £80 (without the SSD). I got the SSD so I could remove a old raid, lower power and quieter (encase the system stays on over-night).
I guess thats the trouble with digital stuff, its so easy to loose a ton of data in mere seconds. What sort-of languages did you learn?
As for the system, I know its a bit old but for the price it will do as a test-server. btw X99 isnt that old - you can fit that 10-core cpu in it. X99 is about the most powerful hardward atm, maybe zen will change that; who knows?
I wasnt having problems with the hard-drives, but configuring the LAMP software. Sometimes I was blocked by user permissions, not knowing the operating system, etc.
as for the site, hopefully ill be able to start doing work on it over the weekend now. I did wonder people would find black-market data useful? its something I been meaning to add for awhile.
as for the Pi, I didnt think they cost much? so might be worth a try?
