    Hearing protection for servers

    I'd just wear earplugs or simple dumb ear protection headphones to be safe. I don't know much about ANC, I wouldn't necessary trust it, as it doesn't eliminate the sound pressure afaict. I know its annoying.

    Water-Damaged WD MyBook Studio Edition II Quad Interface 6TB

    Does it power on at all(spin up)? Did you try some linux recovery livecd? I will avoid anything that is "black box" and only use linux, ideally read-only patched linux kernel(yeah, that's necessary if we're talking about some serious data). I've read reviews for seagate(not wd) recovery service...

    IBM M1210 raid

    Chiming in with lenovo's pull of p/n 00JY196, aka ServeRAID M1210 or 1215. There's no jumper other than UART(neat for debugging i guess). I've spent 6 or so hours trying to erase it with megarec, megacli, sas2flash, sas3flash to no avail The reason I was is very interesting, I use supermicro...

    (BOUGHT) US commscope custom fiber cables, UPDATED: report on outdoor fiber

    I never got to set up a monitoring on the indoor-rated OM3 trunk cable, however I can report I'm still using it with no issues after almost full year of it hanging outdoors, exposed to elements and sun and rodents potentially. So far so good. This was a commscope OM3 MPO 12-fiber cable I got off...

    Efficient space heating

    Yeah, likely. After all LLMs are freakin freely available for anyone and any lil boi can spin it up no time. It's cool and scary at the same time, scammers are widely utilizing it now. To a great result for them. Eldery people should be aware of these increased risks.

    Storage Crypto ?

    Im just so glad that this chia bs didn't last too long, and HDD and SSD prices are back to normal. Besides, someone bought two NVMes from be back in 21(i think?) substantially overpriced.

    Power Strip With Individual Power Draw Monitoring?

    Cool, but I've first PX series( DPXS20A-30L6 ), didn't even look into upgrading because, well, it just works. Don't upgrade or fix what's working is rule #1 in IT, especially true if this is an airgapped network.
