I've been working for almost a year now as a data engineer. It's the best job I have ever had. We do a ton of stuff on cloud. So I've not done much other than some random plex server stuff, some pi-hole things, and a pfsense box (thank you, thank you, thank you to the forum folks who responded...
I wanted to start moving away from my crappy ISP cable-modem/router/firewall/wireless-AP and have been doing so for a while now. It has been determined that if I call up my ISP they can turn the modem into bridge mode thereby making it, for all-intents-and-purposes a dumb modem and my pfsense...
My goal is to consolidate a few boxes onto one -- none are mission critical really so if the VM host I want to migrate them to goes down and takes them too then that's ok.
I have a dedicated (franken-plex box -- that is just janky and needs to get decommissioned) and a few development servers...
So here’s the diagram:
double line with a chevron means wired and single line means wireless. Legend is also in the image.
whatI would like to do is use a pfsense VM (can’t make it a hardware unit for reasons outside of this thread) for routing and the firewall and DHCP because the wireless...

Still looking on a GPU
My setup is in dire need of upgrades.
As the title states I have a CC ready and looking to buy. Need a CPU, a motherboard, and a new GPU.
if you’ve an amazing deal on an 8 core 16 thread Intel setup I’d be ok to entertain that too.
looking to pay...

This came up over at HN:
“So far, per-watt and relative to the amount of I/O, Zen 2 Low-power is already more efficient than anything Apple has put out so far.
So I don't think it would have that much of an impact.”
I asked the op for benchmarks but this is news to me: I mean they’re different...
So I can’t bridge my modem/router thing but I did think that perhaps I could do the following:
1. disable dhcp, firewall, etc
2. Create a DMZ endpoint with an ip of say 192.168.0.2
3. Use separate pfsense firewall and router using the DMZ endpoint as if it were the WAN ip of a dumb simple...
So I’ve got a modem + router from Vodafone (see attached image) and I connected to it the other day to see if I could disable the routing and it doesn’t look like I can. That’s annoying.
so it’s set to do DHCP at 192.168.0.0-255
there’s a cable from it to a layer 2 switch that connects to the...
So I have a win10 host with 2 6TB drives in a zfs mirror on a hyper-v VM that I want to then expose back to the host because games are filling up my 1TB SSD
I thought about SMB and then also iSCSI but am not sure of the perf and was hoping to get some feedback on what approach one would take...
I just picked up two HDDs for a ZFS mirror that I will pass through via Hyper-V to a VM for the time being until I decide (if/when) to build a dedicated box. In that vein it would be nice to create the ZFS pool such that I can just do a pool export and then take the drives and put them in this...
Virtualization — Virtualizing pfSense with Proxmox | pfSense Documentation
I was reading through the guide linked above but what I can’t understand is:
when I create new VMs on proxmox do I assign them the lan bridge of the pfsense VM?
And related are there any gotchas I should know about...
I'm in Hamburg, Germany. So this is an EU request. I am using my gaming PC a lot more for work and could use more ram. Also, i am paying too much for a hosted server with a paltry amount of ram so I could use some storage for plex.
Looking to pay sub 150 EUR OBO for the ram sticks including...
the tl;dr is that this is a new kernel interface designed at being more performant for I/O
And at the end of the PDF with benchmarks.
First of all Happy Thanksgiving to anyone celebrating.
I did something stupid. We are having company over for the holiday and I went to clean the leather couch and applied cleaner onto it directly so now it's stained. Am I doomed or has anyone done this and fixed it? If so what did you do?
the folks over at Cerebras are on the whole let’s make it gigantic and see if it works.
The numbers sure are crazy

Found this over at hardforum and wanted to share.
Fast reads slower writes but would make a hell of a Plex drive
