Re: What was your first computer?

A computer I properly used was a laptop for my 18th birthday with 256mb ram and running XP.
My first SBC was a Pi 2.

I'm not that old but I'm not that young.

Re: Best Raspberry Pi Alternatives 2019

None.
There's other SBC's like ODROID or PINE64 but their software/support can't match that of the RaspberryPi.

I skipped the 3B+ and went straight to the Pi4b, no regrets.

Re: STICKY: If you have a Raspberry Pi 4 and are getting bad speeds transferring data to/from USB3.0 SSDs, read this

Thanks for this! Saved me a lot of time looking on Google.
Running very nice off my USB3 to SATA cable and /root on a SSD.

I have another SSD that's got better read/write speeds so I'll be doing this again shortly; when I can be bothered! :D :P

Re: Longest Raspberry Pi uptime

Well, my whole network went down so thought it would be a good idea to upgrade to buster.
So far... so good. :D

Nothing as good as Etcher.
If you're on a Linux distro, use DD.
If you're on a Windows system, used Win32DiskImager. :D

Maybe a problem with Firefox's ESR?

So gain access to the root account:
sudo -i
then run;
chmod -R 777 /media
Then you'll be able to access via plex. I've always done it this way.
You can do the same for mnt, srv etc too.
I’m still getting the same error via root.
Yeah so maybe try "srv" or "mnt".
