    H11DSi with Dual Epyc failing to boot Windows Server install (2016 and 2019)

    Did you try this? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4514607/windows-server-support-and-installation-instructions-for-amd-rome-proc We had to get a patch last August to do the initial benchmarks because Windows couldn't handle that many threads per CPU. From what I understand it was...

    @WANg this needs to be trimmed but Costco is now at $3.49/lb for USDA Prime brisket. During the shortages, it was up to $5.99/lb. The other two they brought me from the back were 17.5lbs.

    WD Gold 16TB 18TB and 20TB Models Inbound Plus EAMR

    To me, that is the wrong way to fix the problem. It is good to alert users. The warning needs to happen before the drives are purchased and installed. Bob - I thought I read it in one of the initial press releases. I also confirmed via e-mail to WD.

    Of BBQ and Virtualization Why Large Nodes Reign

    Depends on what I am making a bit. For pork, people like Bad Byron's better than my rub. For beef, I am Kosher salt (coarse) + black pepper + paprika + a bit of garlic and onion. Wood wise, I have been using hickory + apple + cheery pellets blended but sometimes add in a few others.

    So apparently this is my worst video of the last 10 by a long margin. Maybe a bad day to publish it. More likely it sucked. Sorry guys.

    Free Virtualization operating systems

    First off, I totally agree. We probably have 40+ Proxmox hosts between the lab, the STH hosting cluster, and even my home. There is zero chance I would use it in our hosting cluster these days if I thought it was not stable. Second, @PigLover as I was reading that I thought it was going to be...
