I have some older cases where I have excess blocks of 3x 5.25 bays that I'd like to just stuff up with some fans - providing ingress of cold air from outside the case.
I have one case where I have mesh bay covers that I'd like to just keep intact, so ideally for that case, the 120mm would be...
I emailed Cooler Master trying to get parts for the original Stacker line, they had nothing.
Mainly looking for the bay covers and drive mounting hardware, but heck if you have the whole case, I'm interested. I had a house fire and had to move a couple of times as a result - lost a lot of the...
I know this is mostly just virtualization and not cloud computing, but hey, can't hurt to kick things off some more.
I've had stuff at UnixShell# , Linode, DigitalOcean, zetservers and finally I'm over at Bhost.
What are you using, and how have you liked the performance so far?
Being on Bhost...
Vogons has a thread that's just "What vintage computing activity did you do today?", so I figured, why not do something like that here?
Added 100GB of a registration dataset to my Google cloud drive.
Worked on an NSG generator for Azure
Made a web appservice template for Azure
So my ESXi box for firewall + fileserver etc sits on the floor in my kids room.
Recently it had taken to overheating when we would use Plex, so I stopped using Plex on it.
And then yesterday it took to just overheating all the time, making an incessant beeping noise.
Time to clean it out. Ugh...
Hi guys. I had a problem this weekend and I want to try to get some troubleshooting ideas before I give it another go.
Host: ESXi 5.5u1
Mobo: Supermicro X7SBE
NIC: Intel® 82573V + Intel® 82573L (Yes I had to roll that in to 5.5)
Old Modem: Moto SB5121
New Modem: Moto SB6121
I've been gifted the following:
H8QME-2 with hexcore 2.0 socket F cpus opteron 8423
8x 2GB ddr2
socket 939 heatsinks modified for socket F
It has some adapters to adapt PCI-E to EPS.
What kind of PSU would be sufficient to push this?
The only thing I really have available...
use case: staring at multiple terminals 8hrs a day
need: dual or triple 24"
need: 1920x1200 resolution
need: monitor stand with height adjustments
prefer: IPS displays
prefer: 2x DVI input, 1x+ DP, 1x+ HDMI
prefer: higher vertical resolution
want: card reader
want: usb ports
For a little while now there have been counterfeit Lenovo adapters on the market, even on Amazon.
I decided that maybe I would put together some information on spotting fakes, to help.
If you can think of anything just ask for it to be included.
You can not...
I'm looking at putting together a very small home storage server. Ideally I would have two 2TB drives in a mirrored vdev. Maybe in three years I replace them with 4TB drives and the array auto-expands.
I saw the Primergy TX100 S3 and it seemed like it might be a great fit.
TX100 S3 Specs...
You get such mixed reviews on everything until it's hard to tell who is really good and who's not so hot (except for OCZ, I've seen no ambiguity there).
Nowadays I'm not so concerned with performance as much as I used to be. I'm looking at getting more RAM and I want to patronize the company...
I generated a long password for HW, when I got back around to it today it did not work, so I did password recovery.
The recovery email sent to me contained a truncated version of the long password I had used.
Just make sure you're not using a password here that is used anywhere else.
I was trying to talk a coworker with a 2600K and some GTX280s into Folding... is there a good short intro thread I can send people like this to?
I'm pretty sure I got him sold on it, but if there's not an easy way for him to get involved I doubt that he'll bother with it.
I was looking at this now that the CM ATCS 840 trays @$12 are gone:
Wondering if anyone else had anything cheap they knew of that was reliably in-stock.
I want to...
I know in RC5-72/BTC Mining you can cut an x1 slot and stick a Radeon in. The bandwidth is sufficient to keep the card fed for those applications since they're not loading/unloading a lot of data.
Does this hold true in F@H? Has anyone tried it?
Frag tape or thermal epoxy.
(Have a Badaxe board with a busted chipset retention clip)
Small GPU to go in the Badaxe. 430W PSU here so be gentle.
GT430 or somewhere around that range I figure.
I figure hell if it's turned on it might as well be putting in a few WUs.
I had one of their modified Athlon 500@650
The cooler was front and back, oddly enough:
Of course I ended up with a crap OCZ goldfinger and a crap mobo (FIC SD11)... shouldn't have spent all of my money on the CPU :D
It's too bad that they went down the crapper.
I do a lot of terminal work and want as much screen real estate as possible, mostly in pixels. I'd prefer something >1680x1050, and the more pixels the better.
I view the GDM-FW900 as rare and cost prohibitive, but the holy grail. If I win the lottery I am buying one.
I currently run two 19"...
I had a process start bugging out and dumping crap tons of log entries, 2MB/sec. I restarted the processes, but it seemed to freak out randomly, and I couldn't really pinpoint the cause.
I upgraded the software to a newer version and it ran for 90 minutes just fine, where earlier it would freak...
I have a rack and plenty of AC power, I run a lot of Xen and KVM stuff.
I see a lot of 16 and 32GB servers going on eBay for $500 and under and I can't help but wonder if the older tech is worth it.
For instance, I saw a Sun v40z with 4ea dual core opterons, no drives and 16GB of RAM for...
I find T41s all day long for $100, I love it.
More powerful than a netbook
Good battery life
Thinkpad quality and durability
Docking stations <$20
AC Adapters <$20
Full linux support
Throw in a 1GB stick of DDR400, an Intel 2200BG and...
man did that bring back some memories
and man did the OCZ Goldfinger suck when I had it.
I had it on a 500... it had been modified with warranty by some company (can't remember the name) and was clocked at 650
with a real goldfinger (with the power connector) it could do 750 but it was very...
Got this one, as my Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro's pushpins suck:
Worked great! I used dikes and just chomped the pushpins in half.
I am so tired of pushpin heatsinks. :(
We had one of these at work, we paid $100,000 for it in when we got it (E2900).
If I had a way to wire the 220v into this, I would so face the...
Yes, the Packard Bell remote. Possibly the most famous single PC remote ever.
Serial DB9, work perfectly under LIRC and WinLIRC.
$5 flat rate shipping.
ETA: Oops, guess I wasn't the only one who noticed. Out of stock now. Can't delete thread.
"Ergotron Neo-Flex All In One stand"
VESA mount, strap for the computer, handle up top for carry
there's a spot there behind the monitor for the keyboard to be locked in, and there's an empty cavity in the base of the stand for the mouse to sit.
Seems like the start of a perfect...
I'm needing to make a GUI app for a space game, and I figured, hey, Silverlight.
It would basically be a zoomable (Google maps style) map with an overhead of a starmap. You could click on your fleet and right-click on a star system within range to send the fleet there.
I had a crude mockup...
I'm sure we've all seen that Slashdot article about the sub-$200 tablet with the ARM processor, and new developments like the Cortex A8 and Marvell Sheeva that are redefining capabilities from commodity hardware.
Do you think smartbooks will see any success?
I can see the argument that our...
Does anybody remember that circa 1998 product that ran in the background and would prefetch pages? It was geared towards dialup users, but everybody ended up using it. It kind of started a crap storm about prefetching, IIRC.
