    Sophos Home is outright DANGEROUS

    So I was attracted to Sophos Home. It offered free AV that got rave reviews as far as detection as well as central web management. What's not to love?

    Need 10gb sfp+ transceivers

    Can anyone recommend some 10gb sfp+ LC transceivers for use with MM fiber and Mellanox ConnectX2 nics? I already have the fiber and the NICS. I would prefer not to use Fiberstore as my orders with them have taken weeks to ship and they aren't exactly responsive to my queries. Anyone have an...
