    corrupt file?

    It's a tower with dual nvidia K1200 video cards. The power supply went out on this about a week and a half ago which I replaced

    corrupt file?

    I'm experiencing wire-frame geometry "disappearing" when I spin it or view it in isometric view. It reappears when it's in top view. Is this a sign the file is corrupt? Or am I having a graphics card problem? It's not happening on other files though that I can see.

    changing multiple diameters

    What is process of changing multiple hole diameters? I want to change a bunch of .078" dia. to .080" dia. It must be something simple I'm just not seeing.

    Nethasp and VPN

    I've been wanting to setup a home pc but was told I needed to switch my dongle to a nethasp and my re-seller warned that it wasn't a supported. Is there a way of doing this with a dongle?

    haas low air pressure alarm

    I have an old carousel tool changer machine with the alarm. It's not so much an alarm as it is a message that says "low air pressure". The machine still runs fine and I'm guessing this will bite me in the a$$ at the worst possible time so I should probably take care of it. Tool restore doesn't work.

    home computer

    Thanks for the input gentlemen. The price quoted to transfer to nethasp wasn't that bad. I hadn't lost a set of keys for 20 years but somehow I'm on my third set of keys this year...needless to say I don't trust myself carting around a dongle.

    home computer

    dealer says they can convert to net hasp for $$$ but it's not designed for vpn and offer no support for it....but that sounds like it may be the best option anyways. It also means I'll have to invest in a beefy computer for the house. How complicated is it to setup for someone (like myself) with zero networking experience? I may play with the remote desktop first just to see how it works...doesn't hurt to try I guess.

    home computer

    I want to setup a home office to program using remote desktop. I have one seat of MC at work using a dongle. Shop PC: Intel Xeon E5-2360 64g ram quadro K1200 (2x) solid state HD dual monitors Internet speed at the shop is: 30 mbps down 10 mbps up Internet speed at home is: 100 mbps down I don't do any crazy multi axis surfacing or anything like that. 99% is 2.5 axis but work extensively with solids. Questions: This should be doable, right? How powerful of a PC do I need on the home side of things? If I have dual monitors at home will my workspace behave just as it does at the shop? Or should I have one extra large home monitor? What is the best remote desktop software to use? Thanks for the help!
