    buying an LTO Ultrium drive suggestions?

    I recently purchased a Dell PowerVault TL2000 off ebay with a LTO6 drive for some personal/side-project work. As somebody that hadn't touched tape since DDS-2, I thought it was awesome. I think the one I purchased was used by the government and turns out according to the service tag has 4 hour...

    Potential deal on Supermicro 846B chassis with SAS2/920P-SQ/more

    When I was shopping for SC846s what made or broke the deal was usually shipping. The 920P-SQ and rear hot swap kits do make these more attractive than your run of the mill SC846.

    AEON Mining Performance

    If you had to pick an antivirus/anti-malware tool, which would you choose?

    My personal view is third-party antivirus utilities introduce more (or more serious) vulnerabilities than they protect against. See, e.g., Project Zero: How to Compromise the Enterprise Endpoint and...

    Any NY Crypto Miners?

    But also high proximity to the ocean and higher average temperatures. Every winter I threaten to leave the frozen tundra of the midwest and then I start running the numbers. Freezing in a large luxurious house gazing at cornfields versus comfortably gazing at the ocean from the back of the van I...

    How stable has the STH aeon pool been?

    I've found it rock solid. There was a period of maybe a few minutes several weeks ago when I saw it go down (maintenance?) but otherwise I haven't had any problems.

    Any NY Crypto Miners?

    There were a couple of people on /r/gpumining in the last couple of days that were looking for people in NY/NJ area to go in on a shared space so I imagine some people are doing it. Whether or not they are doing it profitably is a question, but there appear to be a fair number on here doing it...

    I started with "Hey, I noticed the power circuit feeding your closet isn't fully utilized" and negotiated down from there. We are now at "Just please don't burn the house down."

    The only people I have seen be really successful in the datacenter business (and they have been very very successful) have made their best deals by purchasing datacenters others have built and had to sell for one reason or another (run out of money, acquisition, etc.). The cost of acquiring an...
