    FSP Twins that are 500W Each

    Hesitating if I should get one. You can get a decent 2U rackmount server with redundant power supplies used for $200-$300 on ebay. Would be great in my server rack since then my pfsense will be able to draw power from both of my UPSes in it.

    I don't put my phone in my back pocket but sometimes my screen activate and my smart phone starts dialing numbers in the emergency call part of the lock screen. Phone developers should make this feature harder to enable accidentally like swiping across the screen to get to this mode,

    The SIM Card is About to Die

    "Apple first fought and won against a consortium of other phone manufacturers who were proposing a different (and more advanced) nano-SIM" A nano-sim card is the same as the standard micro sim card but just has some of the plastic cut off.
