    Ikea desk gallery

    Oh yeah, believe me, I am an owner of 5 Jerker desks. I have five that I've collected over the years. I don't even have an Ikea where I live lol. I have a Craigslist alert for ikea desks and scoop them up when I find them.

    I need a Blu-Ray writer that won't die after 6 months to 1 year

    Very good to know that your LGs are still working. They actually have really good reviews on Newegg but if you search by the 1 star, there are also quite a lot of people who've had them die in a short period of time. I can attest to that. I have had two LGs die less than a year old.

    I need a Blu-Ray writer that won't die after 6 months to 1 year

    I don't think I've had an optical drive that lasted since the days when Plextor still made their own hardware and when Pioneer had their slot-load optical drives. Can anyone recommend me a Blu-Ray writer/reader that will last and not die after a very small amount of time?

    Are the Case Labs cases the cream of the crop?

    I bought the Corsair 900D based upon looks and then started reading reviews and cancelled the order. I am eyeing the cases by Case Labs... anyone have any good or bad to say about them?

    Looking to replace my WRT54G Wireless-G Router

    Ubiquiti is good stuff. The EdgeRouter Lite handles my 300/20 Road Runner connection like a champ.

    Home Exchange 2007 server port 25 blocked

    On a home connection you have realized they won't open port 25 but they also won't do your reverse DNS which is necessary so your emails don't get automatically marked as spam.

    Calibrating U2410 and 2408?

    Is it possible to calibrate these two so the color profiles look close enough? I have two 2410s and just picked up a used 2408 and the color profiles are way off. I know they use different panels, one being IPS and the other S-PVA but is there anyway to match them so that they're close enough...

    Email hosting worth my money?

    How many accounts do you need? Can you live with aliases vs. actual inboxes? I would use Google Apps if you were already using it or Office 365.

    Anyone know if all keys on the Logitech 910 are mech?

    I felt the keys on the Logitech 910 at my local BB and let me just say I fell in love instantly. I can type extremely fast. It's a weird feeling of cherry reds but with a lot less bottoming out feeling. Anyone know if all the keys are mechanical or if there are rubber dome in the function...

    Weird issue with Brocade switch appears to be throttling ports

    Looked at link speed, tried different options, 10, 100, 1000, auto, etc. No change. Will check about firmware. Last but not least the Synology when connected to a phone uploads quite fast, we're talking 5-10MBps easily. Although I did play with link speed and tcp settings as well.

    Synology 1512+ offsite backup to Amazon S3 extremely slow

    We have a 20/50 connection and speed tests throughout the entire USA get consistent at least 30Mbps upload. FTPing to servers in California we see the 30Mbps upload get maxed out. We have a Synology 1512+ that's being used as a VMWare ESXi datastore and also a file server along with backup...
