    Suggestion for Reviews

    I really do enjoy the reviews here at STH but if there's one thing I'd really like is a table at the start of a review or mid-way on the first page of a review that lists all the specifications of the product. Take this review for example...

    Hello everyone. A few years ago I wrote on here that I built a pfSense router and since then I've been learning more about it and trying to come up with more advanced usage scenarios for it. And combined with that due to all the anti-privacy legislation being passed around the world including in...

    What excites you about servers and the future of server technology?

    I thought this would be an interesting discussion as we are all enthusiasts here for server stuff. For me I'm most excited about virtualization. I like how hardware is becoming more of a commodity like RAM sticks and things are being defined in software. Routers, Switches, Disk Controllers...

Prior to this I used a Lian Li PC-343B case with six x 5.25" to 3.5" backplanes. Whilst that build was functional it was...
