The New 3DS has it's "Micro SD data management tool" or whatever it's called that lets you transfer files using SMB. Does the Switch have a homebrew app that lets you do that (or even better, running in the background)? Reason is so I can play games in Retroarch on my Switch when I'm out and about, then play them at home on Retroarch on my much more powerful PC. Which means that all my games/saves are in one place, I can use cores that the Switch version of Retroarch doesn't have, and I can run N64/Dreamcast games at 1080p without stutter. I'm currently using sys-ftpd, which does the job I guess, but it isn't always a solid connection. Besided, I heard that SMB was much faster than FTP.

    Upgrading quickly can depend on what you're trying to upgrade. Can you provide more information about what you're looking to upgrade, and what you're hoping to achieve by upgrading quickly?

    It's a good idea to wait it out and let things happen naturally tinkering with update files can cause worse than good

    That's a good, real thermal paste. I bet it's given you great results.

    I'm a huge fanboy and brand loyal so we can argue about the kind you use
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Jif. I get horrible results, I'm going through probably 12 jars of it a week and at least 8 PCs.
