    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    So you won't use Microsoft because you have to use a proprietary account to access a system they operate. And likewise you won't use Apple because THEY make you use their own account... What about your bank? Will you use a proprietary account there? Or is there a large cache of gold somewhere...

    FTP being attacked?

    Hey, I recently restarted my FTP to send files to my family easier. Since the second day I put it up I started to see some suspicious stuff in the log. Looks like this stuff, coming from all different IP addresses. (000046) 8/13/2018 0:30:29 AM - (not logged in) (69.120.18.12)> Connected on port...

    DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 360EX CPU Liquid Cooler AIO NEWEGG EBAY

    I'm only a tiny bit worried, seems solid(ish) and pretty easy to install. Make sure you have a spot for the radiator tho, it's big. Don't have measures in place, but have home owners insurance in a worst case scenario.

    DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 360EX CPU Liquid Cooler AIO NEWEGG EBAY

    I got two of these yesterday. Installed one so far. So far, so good. Looks pretty alright. Temps were much lower than the stock intel fan anyhow. left the pre-applied compound for the moment, will replace it with some better stuff later to see the difference. ask other questions if you have em...

    Juniper SRX210H advice

    Yeah, the Juniper will probably end up being sold on the forum or something. My friend said he could help me setup a pfsense box later if I need it.

    Juniper SRX210H advice

    Well, I figure I should close this thread. All I really wanted was this device to keep outside traffic out safely and I don't feel safe. Maybe I was, who knows. Ended up pulling the juniper out of the loop and just using the linksys e3200 router. I guess I'm just nervous because my internet...

    DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 360EX CPU Liquid Cooler AIO NEWEGG EBAY

    Newegg has it for $110, but the Newegg Ebay store has it listed for $70. With 8% ebay bucks today, not terrible. http://www.ebay.com/itm/381686374504

    Juniper SRX210H advice

    I was cleaning up a pile of leftovers from job sites and came across a SRX210. Have new internet service coming tomorrow and was hoping to use this to secure the network and with my current procurve 1800-24g (and a 3com 4200g) and an already programmed WAP serve out network to my home. Procurve...

    GBE seeming too slow these days

    I honestly only picked up that switch because I got it 3 years ago for like 40 bucks delivered and have been using it in my basement as a secondary switch with just a basic setup. Guess it's time to start using tools to their potential a bit more. I was actually just thinking about dumping it...

    GBE seeming too slow these days

    I have a 3com 4200g switch that supports link aggregation. Looking into that as I have very minimal understanding how to program it.

    GBE seeming too slow these days

    Excellent, I'm going to try it and see how that works. Any feedback on quad port nics? Was looking at an Intel pro 1000 pt quad port for about 45 bucks on ebay.

    GBE seeming too slow these days

    Alright, I'm going to look into an additional nic. Very familiar with internals of pcs. I have open pci and pie slots. So the best way to do this would be to map directly to 10.0.0.x rather than say \\server to divide up the traffic? The data is coming from different disks on different...

    GBE seeming too slow these days

    I have a windows computer serving out a fair bit of data to about 4 machines in my house, sometimes more. When I launch something data heavy like video editing the whole thing slows down and I cannot stream to the other machines effectively. Seems to be reaching the maximum on the NIC in the...

    Windows 8.1 seems to delete backups on external drive when it's reconnected

    Not helpful, opinionated, and I disagree with what I consider a SEMI accurate statement. Once you make a backup of data, you may erase the original, modify it, or experience a failure of equipment. That does not mean you didn't make a 'backup' of the original all of a sudden. Imagine, if you...

    Windows 8.1 seems to delete backups on external drive when it's reconnected

    supposedly, the drives are disconnected before deleting the files off the internal some times, and left connected others. I'll get the recycle bin settings, is there anything in particular you suspect?

    Windows 8.1 seems to delete backups on external drive when it's reconnected

    My brother is running a laptop with Windows 8.1 and he is copying data from the internal drive to a USB drive and then deleting the original copy and the recycle bin. Then when he reconnects the external drive the copy on the external drive magically goes to the recycle bin causing him to have...

    WTB smallish/cheap SSDs...

    I need a few SATA3 SSD drives. No need to be over 256GB so all the people upgrading lately maybe have some leftovers. Might even consider some SATA2 drives or an MSATA or SAS. Willing to consider as small as 60GB drives. Could possibly use as many as 6 so LMK what you got. Give me your best...

    6600k 219.99 + tax @ MicroCenter (in store only)

    I wonder how this performs compared to a 3570k for video encoding. Not sure I can take the hit to the wallet, but some reports sound like quite the increase.

    Best Buy: Fallout 4 all platforms $38.99 or $31.19 with GCU + tax

    Dell r900

    I reseated the power supplies and the fans finally spun down. I guess that maybe all I have is a new doorstop that I can use to toast bread. I find that I can run multiple instances of x264 and it'll use all the CPU, I just wish I could get it to use all that 'power' on a single encode.

    Dell r900

    I recently acquired a Dell r900 with 4 x7460 cpus and 32GB ram and no hard drives. I installed a 160GB WD Black drive and Windows 2012 R2 onto it and I can't get the fans to spin down at all. I installed Dell OpenManage and it shows all 4 fans running at ~5500RPMs and I find no option to lower...

    I'm ok being the lab ratt for this one. I can't speak to people spending months of their lives developing these solutions, but I do know that some people still swear that you should buy the most expensive HDMI cable in the store because it's better. I also have known many major brands dragging...

    FREMO 13000 mAh Power Bank (made by SCUD) $23.99 Newegg

    In for one. I've been testing out two of the Inland ones and I'm interested to see how they compare. I'm hoping to get it in time to take it on vacation. I'd love to have the extra battery pack to go with the the hanging out on the beach.

    Cisco 1142n on home network

    1142n is gigabit, but the POE injector brings it down to 100mb. I rewrote the config to include the lines you suggested and it still gives a timeout error, but then after that it seems to recover and grab an IP and now it seems to be working with a 100mb duplex connection. I'm happy enough...

    Best use for multiple vintage PCs?
