    Sell 5700XT for 6700XT?

    Gamer ethics aside, what does everyone think of flipping a 5700XT to a miner and picking up a 6700XT that's somewhat faster in gaming? I've read some rumblings about people doing this. Unless I can come out ahead or do it for a net-zero expense, I'm probably not interested in the hassle.

    Belkin Router Mess

    Many if not all Belkin router owners woke this morning to no internet. The issue appears to be related to their heartbeat servers not responding to router keepalives. There's only speculation at this time what the issue is on Belkin's side. Some are saying a botched update, others are...

    Favorite Netflow Analyzer/Collector

    I'm looking for a collector and analyzer that will support v9 and specifically both v4 and v6 flows. I've looked at the usual suspects: Scrutinizer, PRTG, nfdump (open source), Manage Engine's netflow analyzer. So far I like Manage Engine's solution the best, but I'm sure I haven't even...

    Need Rectifier Recommendation

    We're proposing a deployment of carrier backhaul chassis that only come in a -48VDC option. The chassis has side A and B input and can alert power failure on either side. That being said I have next to no experience with rectifiers, but I sort of know what I want. My director originally spec'd...

    .gov DNSSEC Signing Issue

    FYI. This appears to affect Google's Public DNS and Comcast's validating servers. As of this morning the test is reporting this: None of the 2 DNSKEY records could be validated by any of the 2 DS record I had to set my validator to permissive to...

    Cisco # of Active TCP Connections

    I need to figure out the number of active TCP connections on my network at any given time. The trouble is I don't know what show command to run to display this information. I'm looking on my 7606 edge router. I've tried "show tcp statistics" but I don't know how to read the output and Cisco's...

    IPV6 available to you? Need a favor

    If you're on cable modem and you know your ISP offers native IPV6 to you, I'm in need of a favor. Your cable modem should preferably be DOCSIS 3.0 and must not be a gateway device (e.g. embedded router like a Motorola SB6580 or the like). I'm looking for a Wireshark capture of the NDP...

    Moving a Site to New Server

    I have been gifted the privilege backing up our website. Currently the site resides on an old SunOS 5.8 box, but I'd like to move it to a linux server in the event the old hardware dies. The catch is, I don't know jack about moving websites. What I do know is the site has a database, so...

    Postini Alternative

    We currently use Postini message filtering to protect roughly a dozen email domains from inbound spam (4000-6000 email boxes). With the news of Google Message Filtering being phased out we're left to find an alternative. So, naturally I've come here to get some recommendations from the...

    I have an Onkyo HTiaB 5.1 setup I'd like to repurpose for PC duty. The issue is the front, surrounds and center channel are all designed to be wall or stand mounted. It's easy to find tall speaker stands, but I'm having difficulty finding ones that will be adequate for desktop use. Here's an...

    OC Instability After SSD Upgrade

    I'm beginning to scratch my head on this one. I've got a SB 2500K on a Gigabyte P67a-UD4-B3 motherboard clocked at 4.3GHz. Prior to installing an SSD my system has been stable at this speed for over a year. Around three weeks ago I upgraded to a Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD as my C:. I rolled CPU...

    Procurve to Cisco VLAN Trunking

    Cheap USB Key OK for ESXi?

    I have a spare 2GB Kingston Datatraveler that I'd like to install ESXi 5 on. I intend for this to be a semi permement installation, but will the USB key hold up?

    Stupid Linux Server Question

    You may recall my previous thread where I fought with permissions in FreeNAS. Since then I've gotten a handle on that and have explored some other file server options.

Google Calendar of course comes to mind and I've tried this, but if my iTouch doesn't have wifi access I cannot update my calendar. Ideally the app would allow me to add/edit appointments in the absence...

    EFI a must have?

    With EFI now an option, I'm torn between which P67 board to purchase. I've had my eye on a Gigabyte UD4 that only offers the traditional bios, while many other well rated competitors are offering EFI solutions on their boards. I'm certain EFI is the future standard due to key benefits, but...

    Corsair 400cx Idle Noise
