    I gave up and I actually disabled LL because I clicked some setting that just started adding new authors on its own and then downloading their books and I couldn't figure out how to disable it. Since I had to do a fresh install, I just left it for now. I just installed Calibre on my laptop and...

    VPS recommendations

    They've worked well for me. Since they only offer a monthly contract, if you don't like them it's not hard to try someone else.

    Contabo ssd disk throttling fyi

    Well yeah, but I didn't know a good way to transfer between drives, especially team/shared Google drives. People must use sasync or autorclone. Good to know these tools exist!

    Contabo ssd disk throttling fyi

    I've seen people talk about doing this before--how do you move the downloaded data from one cloud instance to another? Or do you still keep a main account and somehow transfer the data from each cloud instance to that single "library" account?

    Plex Plex secure connection

    Smart TVs have been a headache for me. Do you put your custom URL in the manual servers for every device connected? I notice without it, streams are severely capped or don't work for some Smart TVs, but with my server in the manual section, it streams at full capacity. I have 'treat as...

    Plex Using RAM for transcoding?

    For anyone else reading this, I believe he's talking about setting Linux Process Priority using nice and renice commands. If I find an example of the script he's talking about, I'll also try to post it here.

    Plex Using RAM for transcoding?

    I am currently on a VPS. I'm not using torrents, I am using NNTP. What do you mean in regards to "io nice settings"?

    VPS recommendations

    I'm trying not to overspend and still supply my peeps with enough power. By comparing that to how much people are spending per active user, I can figure out if I'm getting hosed or not. I really don't understand why this is such a difficult concept. What is P4S service? Pay for Service service...

    Plex Using RAM for transcoding?

    Any thoughts on at what point it makes sense to use RAM vs CPU for transcode?

    Yeah, I mean active users as in people who commonly use Plex in a month versus the amount the server owner spends in a month. I really don't think you need the deep dive to get a general (useful) idea...🤷‍♂️
