    Would you consider this exchange insulting?

    User A on another platform listed an item for sale at $1000. User B posted: when your item does not sell in 3-4 weeks I’ll take it for $800 cash. I replied to B’s post that it was insulting to make a public declaration demanding 20% off and assuming the deal would close. Is my reply insulting...

    Is this part of your job or do you have one hell of a homelab?

    ESXi 7.0: 983 DCT or 970 EVO Plus? Or then what is a good NVMe SSD for homelab?

    I honestly doubt you will be able to notice the difference in performance from any of the drives.

    Dual Xeon-D

    Your Ebay link says ASrock. Are they ASrock boards in a SuperMicro Chassis?

    HP A5820X-24XG-SFP+ 24x 10GbE SFP+ 4x Gigabit - $175

    I was a sucker and lampooned my lab with 10GbT so I went with Arista and a lovely rack mounted heater.

    [WTB] SuperMirco CSE-846B within 100m of 30542

    My funny/interesting story.. My first interaction with computers was a Dell Alpha with a Sony 21 Trinitron monitor. After college I went shopping for a computer and bought a 486 SX with no math coprocessor, 15" monitor, windows 3.11 and Mindspring internet over 26.6 baud. Talk about a letdown in...

    [WTB] SuperMirco CSE-846B within 100m of 30542

    Thanks for pointing this out.. It should be 846B. I spent part of my day playing around with an old HP Vectra running a 486 DX100 and completely have 486 on the brain.

    [WTB] SuperMirco CSE-846B within 100m of 30542

    Tossing it out there.. maybe someone has a Supermicro CSE-846B chassis they are looking to sell. It does need to be model B which supports Drive Kit MCP-220-84610-0N. If your chassis already has the drive kit I would want to purchase that as well. Located in 30542 and would want to pickup the...

    Where to Start with Switching Home Network from Consumer Grade to Ent Grade?

    Congratulations on the Brocade. It is a solid switch. I started my journey at the firewall. I went with pfSense. For me, it made more sense to start at the firewall because everything else connected to it: DNS, DHCP... I quit recommending Unifi equipment. The heaping pile of trash that was the...

    nvme problems

    This is very theoretical so take it with a grain of salt. I doubt there is anything to modify in the BIOS. If the OS can see the drive at any point your settings should be correct. I would double check your SATA configuration and make sure they are set to AHCI. Hopefully you have a second m.2...
