Problem gambler – Should I talk to the DM about a murder hobo that derailed the campaign?

I am in high school and very new to dungeons and dragons, so I have no experience with it. I recently joined a new group consisting of 3 slightly experienced players and a relatively new DM.

Our DM decided to try Mines of Phandelver, but it was terribly derailed. It went well until I missed a meeting and one of the other PCs decided to murder Hobo, burn down the inn in the first town, and try to use oil to kill as many civilians as possible. After that, the DM missed two meetings without telling anyone (all players showed up). After he came back, he made the whole party act as a criminal, although nobody else did anything. He also doesn't strike to kill the murder hobo in battle.

The DM says nothing about it, but I'm worried that it will get out of control. Should I try to talk to the DM or PC about it or should I let it play?

Avoid clogging DISK I / O | Web Hosting Talk

Hello everyone, I am designing a system that divides mp4 films into hls and divides them into small parts. Each part is stored on small servers (1x Intel® C2350 (Avoton) | 4 GB DDR3 | 250 GB SSD | 1 Gbit / s cable).

Since ffmpeg has the ability to select the video every few seconds, a new track is created that I want to understand to optimize DISK IO. In your opinion, it is better to determine the number of KB. I did a test.

With the codecs I use, a piece of 500 KB is created every 5 seconds …
Do you think it's better to have 500 KB or more?

I want to clog the DISK IO as little as possible

Thank you very much

Offshore Windows VPS recommendation | Web Hosting Talk

I am looking for a Windows VPS provider that has been on the market for a while and is trustworthy. I will prefer it to be hosted somewhere in Switzerland, Romania, Luxemberg, etc. so that my privacy is 100% guaranteed. No malicious use is made, but I just want my remote desktop to be somewhere where I can peacefully trust and not be paranoid.

I am looking for 4 vCores, somewhere around 10 GB RAM, 70-80 GB hard disk. Perhaps a port that goes up to 10 Gbit is shared. Full administrator access, of course. My budget is $ 30 a month. I can see many vendors selling from many European data centers. That's how I get my price.

Any form of recommendation is greatly appreciated.

Avoid eNom – Seriously Web Hosting Talk

Does anyone else use eNom? How do people deal with their constant price increases? You have become as unreliable a partner as cPanel.

We received another email about price increases last night – unfortunately we still have a lot of domains with them and are kind of stuck. Does anyone have any advice on how to get out in bulk? ie a strategy for the transfer on renewal?

In addition to annual spending requirements, minimum registration requirements now apply – meaning you have to spend x USD per year AND register x new domains to maintain your status. We moved all of our new registrations to Hexonet a few years ago because their prices are much better. That is why we register 0 new domains with eNom.

I try to free ourselves from partners like cPanel and eNom, which I think are unreliable, so as not to fear every email that comes from them, and just to wait for the next price increase.

Apart from that, I recommend everyone to contact Hexonet – their prices are dramatically better than those of "Platinum Plus" from eNom and they are very flexible. The support has been excellent (they respond within minutes versus weeks from eNom), and their WHMCS integration is also much better.
