    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...

    Clarification/Explanation of top of rack switch

    I was reading about a Mellanox 100GbE switch. The info doc attributes it as a top of rack switch. Googling top of rack defines it as a design spec where servers connect to the switch in the rack. However, it also states that the switch can be located anywhere in the rack. If I had to explain...

    What are the longest life expectancy you have seen in SSD drives?
