Trying to simplify my life. Sold my gaming rig. Going down to just a business laptop. Bought a VPS with 4TB RAID storage to host media instead.

Want to mount this as a permanent network drive on Windows 10 (I must use it for work) so that I may continue to access high bitrate media (as long as I'm connected to the internet) on my laptop which only has a tiny SSD.

Where do I even start, Alice? Google is fucking helpless.

I hosted a plex server for a while, and it worked pretty well. Its free(you have to pay for the mobile app, but you can always just use your mobile browser), and easy to set up. Its also a nice way to share your media library with friends, most people have chromecast or a smart tv with the plex app. Theres other options out there though so look around, I only have experience with plex.

agreeing for this if you were just using it for media

if you wanted an actual network mount so you can store everything, you'd need to look at running SMB over the internet.

SMB is the protocol for network mounts on windows. Samba is the linux version, which came from reverse engineering SMB… and it's actually a lot better to administrate.

Though, SMB does suck with latency, so it might not do well with media, thus option 1 might just work if you're willing to use it.

using sftp is still valid for basic file transfers in these times

It would be for everything except the operating system and program files.

If Samba is better, why use SMB?

Would this include live editing remotely hosted files such as code I'm writing?

Why sell the gaming rig? Just consider it an appliance and don't do anything on it but launch games.

I've used ssh for such things in the form of sshfs. the best description I've ever seen of sshfs is "a dirty hack", but it works very well for such things, particularly if only one thing is accessing a given item at a time (not like, writing on the server and reading on a client).

Alice, what should i start looking into if i want to work in cybernetics and robots (not AI yet, just your classic mindless robot)? Im a baby in the world of computer science. What languages would be of most use?

you can't go wrong with c++

Have you tried Prolog? It's pretty easy to start with and very fun.

SMB over internet is soykafty advice that has aged even poorer. Use smb behind vpn or webdav, or sshfs. Windows supports webdav mounts.
