#7 What do you use for OS Migration or HDD backup? in Hardware
BlackOutJonI personally would use Acronis to do this by making an image of my current drive, then restoring the image to the new drive. Acronis is paid software so it isn't for everyone (but it is by far the best way to create proper images of drives that can be browsed)

The Samsung software should be work just fine for your use though. Just add the nvme drive to your system, boot up to your HDD, run the program which will do its thing then turn off, disconnect hdd and boot to nvme drive.

Thank you for your input, I'll just use the Samsung software then.
Is it necessary to disconnect the HDD if I can just use my BIOS to set the new drive as the boot? I intend to eventually wipe the HDD and use it as additional storage once I've confirmed the M2 isn't going to fail. I guess in that case I probably should disconnect anyway if I'm not going to use it for multiple days.

#1 What do you use for OS Migration or HDD backup? in Hardware

Upgrading to a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus nvme and I want to move my entire 1TB HDD (including Windows installation) over to it, and back it up before if possible. What software should I use?
Apparently Samsung has their own data migration software, anyone have experience with that?

#7 TF2 "Retakes" in TF2 General Discussion
24CaptainZidgelCombine the hammer idea with sourcepawn and then you have the best of both worlds.

We already have arenas set up for MGE, so wondering how hard could it be to take some popular 6s maps and transform them into these "retake" maps?

Depending on how you want to structure your retake map it could be simple or difficult (captain obvious lol)
but basically if you wanted to do a tug of war between 2 teams (not like a bunch of mini arenas) on a normal map, you could practically throw down a bunch of new spawns, some brushes to stop you from leaving crucial areas, and just activate/deactivate them from SP - disclaimer, ive only tinkered with SP in CS:GO. TF2 could have wrinkles in its spawning mechanisms.

#5 TF2 "Retakes" in TF2 General Discussion

I like the idea but 6v6 is certainly a lofty goal.
4v4 might be more achievable. Assume each time has lost two people, but still decided to push - that would definitely not be a realistic situation in most 6s games in my experience. Probably better the attacking team always has the uber ad, as you're not going to be pushing otherwise.

I dont know too much about advanced hammer but does this even need to be a plugin? If you modify the spawn points and game logic that chooses where your spawn is (and spawn times), and ditch the randomized classes idea, you might be able to do 90-100% of this in hammer. I guess it depends on the expertise of anyone who decides to take on the idea. - then again you can't spawn people with uber levels in hammer. sourcemod probably wins here.

I haven't been listening to a lot of music later in the year because of work, if I did I probably listened on youtube, so that's going to be a skew about my interests.
