    Any ideas on how I could fit 6 more hard drives into my Fractal R4 case?

    Hey guys. Looking to add another array of 6x8 TB into my NAS setup, bringing the total to 12. Unfortunately, I'm in a little jam. My HDD cages have room for 2 so far and perhaps I could fit two into the 5.25" drive bays but is there a better way to do this? Perhaps, fitting a HDD cage in...

    34" 21:9 UltraWide Displays (3440x1440) - LG UM95/UM65 & Dell U3415W

    I also was not impressed by LG 34UM95 after coming from a Dell U3011 monitor. I am a web developer and only use my monitor for productivity (no gaming). The monitor feels small and is too stretched horizontally to get a proper viewing angle. 2 monitors that are angled side by side is better for...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I am a little confused about some of the ACL extension features. What is the difference between ZFS/dataset ACL and SMB share ACL? Also, setting the ACL for individual users works great. How do I do it for groups? I don't see any option to add groups (only add local user). Does it apply to the...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    When I first access a share via... \\sharename, it's asking me for username and password even though all datasets have been set to guestok=true. It didn't do this before but after messing around a little bit, it started doing it. Anyone have any idea what's causing this and how to turn this...

    Hi Danny, I've tried an older 430W PSU that was stripped from an old computer and got the same result.
