    Server Query

    Depending on how the system is to be supported and based on the little info provided, I would follow the hardware specs recommended. Not necessarily as provided by the supplier. Support providers are always looking for excuses to pass the buck (responsibility). Best to give as little opportunity...

    Netgate removed all mention of pfSense from their website + Major Regressions in pfSense 2.5 and newer

    I'm with Layla on this one. Having used PFSense since Monowall , I'm a little disappointed. And without knowing the details and following the machination closely, looks to me like another case corporate greed built on open source.

    Is an Intel NUC still relevant in 2020 for homelabbers?

    Using a i5 NUC with 32 GB RAM for my Proxmox test box. NVME + SSD. Works great. Cheap to buy (relatively), cheap to run, easy to transport. Most of our customer new desktops are now NUCs for many of the same reasons.

    ESXI to Proxmox

In more recent times I have backed up to shared storage like a NAS and restored from there even using the...

    System Cleaning - Any tips or best practices?

    Yes but not to this extent In some videos I have seen Bryan use soapy water after loosening the dirt. My take away is that whatever sticks the dirt to the part needs to be dissolved then the dirt can be wiped or "floated" off. WD40 provides some photogenic marketing shine. This guy refurbs and...
