    RMA turnaround time

    It's been a long time since I last had to RMA a video card. Those that have had to do it in the last few years, what's the turnaround time? I'm on week 5 of an MSI RMA, as in, they have had it since November 27th. I understand the holidays can delay things, but I'm starting to feel like it...

    Droid Pro speculation

    As seen here, the Droid Pro looks to be closely related to the Droid and Droid2. I'm hoping for a scaled up Droid2 type frame in black. It stands to reason that this might be the case, given the sequential model numbers given for the Droid2 (A955), Droid2 World Edition (A956) and Droid Pro...

    Not getting bonus

    Client was initially configured without a passkey. Since adding the passkey I've processed a Bigadv and one SMP unit without recieveing any bonus points. I'd doublechecked my passkey in the client setup and it is correct. Maybe because I was not folding for a while I need to run 10 units...

    Native linux Bigadv is a pain in the ass

    Ok guys, I've been trying to get a Bigadv client running on my Ubuntu box but my lack of linux experience is a larger obstacle than I had counted on. Is there anyone out there willing to help me figure out how to set this damn thing up? It's a fresh install of Ubuntu and a probably screwed...

    Pondering PPD on old multi-CPU boxes

    There are a few 8-CPU P4 3.0GHz w/HT servers in the junk pile at work with 32GB of RAM each. Anyone think they are worth resurrecting given that they are probably horribly inefficient?

    What to do with an 8CPU 32GB RAM IBM x445

    Have an 8-CPU (3.0GHz probably "Gallatin" Xeon MP) 32GB RAM IBM xSeries 445 running a free copy of ESXi 3.5 U5 + EXP400 DAS array. Old but it worked very well for our needs. ESXi free just didn't seem to have a good way to back up the virtual servers. Needing good VM backups for our DR plan...

    What to do with iPhone 3G w/o SIM?

    I have an extra iPhone 3G that I'd like to play around with, but I don't think that is possible unless I put a SIM in it. I'd really just like to use it to listen to music and maybe for web over WiFi. What do you guys think?

    Can you copy ESXi VM files to USB drive?

    I want to keep backup copies of my VMWare machines on an external hard drive, if possible. Any ideas? I have a sneaking suspicion that the service console that ESXi lacks is going to get me on this one.

    So out of the blue, my EVGA 750 SLI FTW just quit working. The CPUs, RAM, power supplies and video cards I used to test the it are known-good and work in other systems. The 750i powers up, the fans turn and the LCD readout on the board always says "FF". There is no beep at POST. The...

    Anyone using QNAP or other small iSCSI target with ESXi?

    VMWare's HCL is giving me a bit of trouble right now, otherwise I would just check there to see if ESXi is compatible. I'm looking to play around with iSCSI and ESXi. I've played around with Openfiler but I'd prefer a dedicated SAN that doesn't break the bank. Is anyone using something like...

    4GB/8GB HP Flash Drives $9/$18 @ Staples MB YMMV

    I was in Staples to pick up $15 100 pack of Memorex CDRs on sale this week when I noticed an endcap with HP flash drives on sale. The price on the endcap was less than the flyer, which makes me think it might have been a store special, so YMMV. 4GB - $10 - Printable 10% off coupon listed...

    Client Configuration Comparison

A critique of our current configs wouldn't hurt either. So please post what you have and let us know if...
