Almost 2021, here's my setup for 2020.
Not a whole lot to talk about my primary PC and work laptop. Mostly just for development and occasional gaming.
The servers on the bottom picture consists of two ESXI servers and an Unraid server. The PC sitting on the carpet is just a dead weight...
I am using Aune X1S as my DAC/AMP for two years, so far so good. I used it to power my Fostex T-X0 and Sennheiser HD6xx headphones. I think the latest version of Aune X1S is currently available on drop.com.
Yea, it was from yesterday's NewEgg Thursday ads so maybe it was a 1 day deal.
I bought a pair myself to add more RAM into my vSphere ESXI server.
$210 is still not that bad consider it's 64GB but I think there might be few other options in that price range.
Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4 3200 @ NewEgg $189.99
Gosh.. I remember spending $300 couple years ago for 32GB of DDR4 and now you can get 64GB for less than $200. Incredible!
The cheap 10Gbps SFP+ Mikrotik switches that people are referring to usually are the following two:
They are both fanless 10Gbps switches.
And what I meant cheap is I am referring to when you purchasing...
Two issues with Dygma
- Missing numpad
- Doesn't have tenting capability like the Kinesis freestyle edge although the Dymga team did said they will create a tenting kit for it but that has not yet started to date.
I am a backer of the Dymga Raise's kickstarter project, I received the keyboard...
You will need to add two additional "Virtual Switch". For each "Virtual Switch", assign an "Uplink" to it. Each uplink is pointed to a GB ethernet port.
After you created the "Virtual Switch" then you will need to add port group to your virtual switch.
I think this post deserves a poll. My opinion toward spaces versus tab is a personal preference. However if it is a coding standard mandated whether it is spaces or tab by the company then I am fine with that as well.
I personally prefer spaces over tab but that is just me.
I bought a 2nd hand Herman Miller Aeron chair and sat on it for a year. It's comfy but it doesn't amaze me.
I sold my Aeron and bought the Uplift Pursuit chair and been using it for 1 1/2 year. I personally liked it more than the Aeron.
It also been reviewed by Kyle, see the review here...
The EVGA Nu Audio was just announced this month. I wasn't even sure if it is available for purchase yet.
If OP can get a hand on it, he can be the guinea pig to test it out for us. haha..
I have a Creative Sound Blaster E1, it's not bad. It advertised as a portable DAC/AMP so you can use it...
Probably not going to switch to Intel NUCS. This is a Ryzen 1700x server that I just build recently. Thanks for your suggestion though.
The remote feature requires HWiNFO64 to be installed on the machine that you wish to monitor. HWiNFO64 is a Windows application and cannot be installed on...
I just built a new Ryzen 1700x ESXI server using ASUS GA-AX370-Gaming (rev. 1.x) as the motherboard.
On my other ESXI server, Dell R420, under Monitor -> Hardware -> System sensors, I can see the CPU temperature.
However on this new Ryzen 1700x ESXI server, when I go to the same page, I see...
CM used to sell just the bracket on their website. I can't find it anymore though so they must of took it down. You can try to Email them and ask about it.
I was able to find a listing on EBay. The seller seems to be reputable but they are based in Netherlands...
I am building an ESXI server using Ryzen 1700x. I don't really need a good video card for the ESXI server so I just bought a cheap used video card (ASUS GT520) from EBay.
For some strange reason, I can't get get ASUS GT520 to work with Asus GA-AX370-Gaming (AM4) using the 1st PCIEX slot. It...
I actually bought one 10TB WD EasyStore and two 8TB WD EasyStore. I will be using it for an Unraid server. The 8TB drives will be used for data and the 10TB drive will be used as parity drive.
The two 8TB drives are currently in the pre-clear state right now.
Also, I bought the EVGA...
11 years 2 months and still rocking
I originally purchased this for a Q6600 build and then moved the PSU to a 2600K build when I was building a new PC.
I actually thought about replacing the PSU because I plan to turn that 2600K build into a file server (unraid).
Haven't update my setup for awhile but just want to throw an image up to share. :)
This is from 2002 when LCD is still a luxury computer components.
The computer above the dresser was a FTP server and a shoutcast server. This is when virtualization still isn't a thing and you actually need a...
I can't really speak reliability of that AOC USB monitor because I only owned for a year. I haven't yet encounter any issue with it (touch wood)
However, the driver of the monitor can be frustrating sometime but I was able to get it to work the way I wanted. The reason the driver can be...
Yes, I have a similar scenario where I want to bring a 2nd monitor on the go when I am on travel.
I bought AOC e1659fwu, it is a 16" monitor that is powered by USB so no extra power adapter is needed. Both the display and power is running thru the same cable.
I didn't know Motorola is back into the networking business. I thought they sold all their networking business to Arris.
Only get the EdgeRouter X if you are willing to spend time to learn and configure it properly. It is not extremely hard but will take a bit time.
I don't have much...
My R410 arrived couple days ago. I finally have time to install ESXI 6.7 on it.
- 2x Intel Xeon E5-2440 @ 2.4GHz
- 48GB of RAM
- 2x1GB NIC
- 4x2TB hard drives configured in RAID5
- DVD Drive
- Dual PSU
Note in the picture that I am using a UPS. The CyberPower consumer level UPS is not useful...
It takes a bit of time to setup the edge router but it is well worth it. You have pretty much full control on your network. I like it that I can set up multiple VLANs so I can isolate my network for work, entertainment and IoT devices.
Hey guys, thanks for your tips.
My ESXI server is already online. Although I couldn't get my ESXI server to use my onboard realtek NIC but I do have a spare Intel PWLA8391GT NIC that ESXI server was able to detect and use so networking isn't an issue.
I will double check my BIOS settings to...
This is the first time I am running an ESXI server, particularly version 6.5.0 (Build 4887370). Before that I have been using Virtual Box for hosting VMs for many years.
My ESXI Server is installed on my i7-2600K with Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard.
I have two questions.
1) I am using the...
I might be taking over what's the OP were asking but I would like to ask if you were going to hire an individual to be in a blue or red team, what type of certifications you would be looking for?
I am a software engineer and I hold a bachelor of Computer Science degree and a master of...
