    Classic Amazon packaging.

    I've loved amazon's packaging before. I even kept the boxes from before. Maybe it's because it's amazon's frustration free packing and not the normal OEM?

    Virtualbox + cronjob

    how about:

    scheduled tasks, wich executes a python script, every x hours, that does take down a random VM with a new one, and automatically starts the new VM.

    The VM's are made in VMware workstation 8, and every new VM is based upon one of the 3 base VHD, on wich is a windows preinstalled, and on every ond of the base VHD's is a different type of server machine (fileserver/exchange/ftp..).

    there can be a scheduled task aswell, that will inject a random virus in a random machine every day/hours

    Sample viruses could be downloaded from here:
    www.offensivecomputing.net

    EDIT:

    I am actually going to try this.

    I'm going to make a plan and a thread tomorrow.

    amazon is known for being terrible with hard drives, they don't know or care to know how to ship them properly
    at least you didn't order a single drive, they used to (and possibly still do) send them out in nothing more than an anti static bag and a cardboard box

    meanwhile any I have ordered from Scan had an inch of bubblewrap taped around, and they were left in the plastic shell

    You got free shipping?

    Well that's why it was poorly packed. For Amazon free shipping means "let's throw the item in the box and put airbags on top".

    And I think he fucking solved it. I've been uploading to youtube at 660KB/s for the last few minutes and it hasn't dropped.

    That's like 5.5Mbps upload sustained

    my HDD from Amazon had plastic things around it to absorb the shock, I assume the warehouse guys don't know that they're sensitive to shock, while someone from Scan / Newegg would, since they're an electronics retailer.

    Oh.

    Just sounds like whoever packed you hard drives didn't care about packaging or doesn't know how to package at all.

    Edited:

    I just get my hard drives from friends who have access to Navy/Army stores.

    2TB drives are/were like $80.

    Just now i'm all groggy waking up when my mother starts calling for me

    Mom-"Come here for a minute"
    Me-"You come here"
    "No I need help with my computer"
    "well give me a minute"
    "What are you doing?! I need you up here!" -thought the house was on fire by this point
    "What does it matter just give me a minute"

    at that point I just went upstairs only to discover she had zoomed out of her screen again (the best I can describe it) I don't know how she does it but i've fixed this same issue at least 5 times and showed her how each time. You hold ctrl and scroll in either direction.

    So I sat there and had her do it.

    I think when you know how the virus acts you can create custom events and send them to the monitoring server so you can identify which virus is on what machine.

    Also I would rather not inject the virus in every machine but look for viruses that try to attack other computers on the network. If you do that with unpatched windows xp vms I think that would work.

    I just got offered an engineering sample GTX 580 for $280.

    Do I do it?

    I was waiting for the GTX 670 Ti to upgrade but the price of two would definitely get pricey. Getting the GTX 580 and another one later would be cheaper wouldn't it?

    Edited:

    I have two 6870s right now.

    I should use AdSense even though my videos don't get very many views.

    But it would be more money than I had before.

    Because your graphics card is interfering with your onboard audio? Get a soundcard. It still isn't as bad as mine though, I can hear my HDD reading/writing through my headphones.


    Wait, are you using a 9800 GT as a pair of headphones?

    it's a 9800 GT PE which only uses PCI-E slot power, a pair of HD 202 headphones, thermal paste (his cpu fan turns into a jet all the time) and I threw in a logitech gamepad, too, because I had one laying around.
