    Never mind the quick start guide shows a 12v .5A power brick. So you don't HAVE to run it POE.

    ASA 5505 RAM upgrade recommend?

    Maybe I was just lucky, but this 512MB in my ASA 5505 was a pull from an old PC. Never had a problem with it.

    I didn't see any adapters that would replace the ODD for 2 x 2.5 drives. I wedge an Intel SSD in the center tucked under the 16GB case-less USB flash drive. The box already has 2x1TB 3.5 drives connected to the PERC. Running VMWare ESXi 5. It is VERY quiet. Wish it had room for more drives...

    RAID 96

    Looking through the new features of my QNAP 3.6 firmware I see SYMFORM cloud backup. I take a look at their offering and I see this RAID 96. I read the details and it looks like RAID5 at a 1MB block size. Their claim to only need 64 of 96 blocks to recover 64MB of data is a bit misleading. You...

    4 x ST32000542AS 2TB 5900 RPM Seagate QNAP TS-419P Faster drives won't help the Atom CPU do AES. Speeds went from 80MB/s to 30MB/s with encryption enabled. Security of the data is more important to me so I will take the speed hit.

    Any opinions on the wifi time capsule unit?

    The Timecapsule is good maybe a bit pricey, but clean if you don't want a datacenter in your home. :) If you are on a mid-range budget, I recommend an Airport Extreme and a USB external hard drive directly connected to the AirPort Extreme. If you want to do a little more with your storage skip...

    Help pick the right MBP SSD

    I have had great luck with the Intel 320 series 300 & 600GB drives. I do have a 250GB 510 in a 2011 13" MBP with no issues. The 6Gbps sata was flaky in the 15" and 17" Early 2011 models. Over 50 Intel SSD's for me with ZERO failures. Stick with the Intel and you will not be disappointed.

    connecting to an office pc

    I still think RDP is the best for direct connect. That said, the time has finally come to make sure all of your RDP connections are done over VPN since the Morto worm has infecting via port 3389.

    SSD formating/clean wipe

    I use the Intel SSD Toolbox, but it does require an Intel SSD to have no partitions and be a secondary drive. Also use one of these to make your life easier. As the bios password lock sometimes requires you to eject and re-insert the...

    question about building a new system

    I only avoided the ECC due to the Server motherboard configurations not having the correct configuration. More like a Workstation board with Audio and PCIe16 etc.

    All things equal, what's better: 2 DSL vs. Cable?

    I agree with goodcooper 1 Cable and 1 DSL. Even drop to the most basic DSL for a lifeline connection to save money. 2 different connections should always leave you with at least 1 working and you are already setup to deal with 2 connections as that has been your setup for some time.
