    Yeah. Somehow my apartment is a Verizon black hole despite where I live so it helps with reliability on my Note 5. (wifi calling is pretty inconsistent too).

    Finally got around to putting in my srx220 at home. Mainly so I can use it as the only switch and have site-site to my colo gear (fronted by a srx240). Not pictured is a UAP. Sadly I have to nat off the VZ router so my set-top boxes will play nice.

    Seagate Faces Class Action Lawsuit Over Failing Hard Drives

    I would say that the backblaze numbers aren't accurate though. Desktop class drives aren't designed for server environments so their failure rate should be taken with a grain of salt. That said, I have about 10000 enterprise class Seagate drives online at work and get less than a 1% failure...

    Full Packet Capture Options

    This really comes down to what you want to spend. Driven by that would be how much traffic is being monitored and desired retention. Doing things like a rotating tcpdump is possible sure, but interacting with that traffic is very cumbersome once say, you get an ids alert and have to find...

    Naive question : how many VMs can i run with 4 cores ?

    In real world production. Usually do not want to go above a oversub rate of 4-8:1 Depends on the rest of the hardware. In testing, use whatever you desire since ram is usually the limit.

    FAA to Reevaluate Inflight Electronic Device Use

    This might be sparked because lets be honest... Will a plane full of say 300 people actually listen and do what they are told in turning off electronic devices? I do because an iPhone kills it's battery searching for 3g the whole flight, hah.

    The Most Hated Company in Tech

    Without a shadow of a doubt Intellectual Ventures is the worst. Because unlike other companies where people might "dislike" some thing or another... Their entire goal in life is the disruption of anything that will make them money.

    Verizon Doubling FiOS Speed to 300Mbps

    Main two reasons is cost to build out, and due to contracts for other isps in localities. Some places have contracts for 40+ years with providers. However as this service will most likely cost 450-500 a month, it will be hard to justify.
