    True, I turned on a r430 in an empty room with very little noise and could not hear it.

    need GenControl alternative for Windows 7

    I fixed my problem, had to enable a windows firewall exception for WMI remote management. Is it possible to have the program ask for credentials to connect to a non-domain computer if you try to connect to one? We have a lot of non-domian computers for security reasons. This is an awesome...

    Where I work (Small office type environment) we have been using nothing but Dell, we have 2x 5448's, 3x 3524p's, 1x 3548p, 1x 6224f and we haven't had a problem.. They're dirt cheap and unless you are running lots of traffic (we aren't.. Most traffic is at 10pm when 20 computers go to backup) or...

    You using Cisco AP's? I put in a purchase order a month ago for a 5508, NCS, 9x 3502's, 7x 1552's, and 6x WS-C3560CG-8PC-S's to replace a 4 ap nortel system that is owned by a coworker not the company. All Cisco

    The Cisco price is the lowest price I can get through a state contract. I don't need POE, the EX4200-24T CDWG lists as being POE. The most layer 3 I plan on using is routing between a management vlan (for switches, WCS, etc) and the vlan the desktops are on (with ACL). Which, I'd imagine our...

    Looking for some Security Network DVR recommendations

    Where I work we have two GE (Now UTC Fire and Security) Symdec 16 + 4's. They are the only security DVR's I have ever used so I can't compare them to anything else. But they're stable and integrate with our Kalatel digiplex, Kalatel controllers, our cyberdomes and our alarm system.

    USB to Gigabit adapter throughput?

    USB 2.0 is 480Mbit/s and Gigabit is 1000Mbit/s. You won't be able to get full gigabit speeds through a usb 2.0 adaptor, theoreritcaly without overhead you'd be able to get 480Mbit/s. Realistically I'd guess about 300Mbit/s. But I am probably way off If it's USB 3.0 then you'd have no problem...

    As far as I know there are far better options than a drobo. I haven't heard great things about them. Qnap, Synology, etc. might be better options I love my DS1511+

    Dell Vlan Gurus ?

    If you want to do it using the GUI it's fairly easy. If I remember right you just have to go to vlan membership, and create the vlan. Then for trunk ports you select the vlan and hit the port's box until it reads "T" (tagged) and for untagged ports you just have to hit that box until it says "U"...

    Help deciding on a new laptop.

    The thinkpad t420s or t520 might work for you. I know the 520 can have a 1080p screen. And AFAIK the battery life is pretty good too. You could also consider the W520, it is a workstation class laptop but with the right power settings you can get 7 hours out of it.

    Is this a decent server?

    http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=39721 I believe that is the xeon version of the 960. AFAIK sc0tty8 is right, only xeons can take advantage of ECC mem. I also believe only xeons can do vt-d (passing pcie device to a VM) if you ever wanted to take advantage of that. But I'm not 100% sure on...

    Is this a decent server?

    Skip the i7, go for the xeon version of that. You're already buying ECC memory so might as well get the xeon.

    Sort of Apple related. . .

    I say go to head-fi.org. They will be able to tell you easily. They have helped me buy a number of headphoes and all their suggestions are right on. And you can trust anything they say is quality (unlike skull candy or beats)

    Time for a new phone (AT&T)

    True most of the time. But IMO there is more fun to be had with android because of all the different roms, kernals, and modems. With the iPhone there really isn't anything like that, just cool tweaks and apps like biteSMS, lockinfo, etc. Most of which can be done on android without rooting.

    Time for a new phone (AT&T)

    I have a 3gs. I just bought a captivate off ebay, it was GREAT. I liked android much more than iOS and the ability to hack it and flash it is really fun. I had to return it unfortunately because it was a older one with the shutoff problem, but as soon as I get my refund I am going to buy another...

    CCNA - Changing at all and is this equiptment still relevant

    I do know that having 2950 switches is a must.. the 1900, 2900(except for 2950 2960) and 2900XL will do you very little. 2950's are what you want. As for the routers you mentioned, they run a older version of IOS, I would suggest finding 2600 series routers and if you can afford it 2600XM models...
