Hosting solar systems
Hardly the most exciting thing, I know, but it was interesting to get such old technology working.
And I do mean primitive: this is 70's-era technology. 38400 bits per second, 8 bits data/no parity/1 stop bit. That comes out to about 4 KB/s.
Now granted, it was completely pointless. I mean, if I wanted data transferred, I grab an Ethernet crossover cable and hope Fedora comes with the proper drivers for the gigabit ethernet card. It was mostly to fuck around with ancient technology.
Here's a dirty simple custom view I use
Produces results like this (which in this case was me starting it over WOL)

So they can't do any decent rendering or anything?
If they're just NAS units (what I showed), they're only good for storing data. Admittedly, they'll scale into the petabyte range, but they can't do anything with the data.
If they're actual servers, they might have some better use. At the very least, they'd be able to run (certain) game servers well. Or make for really good web servers (or other "boring" stuff). If Minecraft didn't have x86 dependencies, I'd say that - you could easily run multiple servers on a single T4 processor.
Rendering though... probably not, especially if they're old ones.
My boss emailed me saying they are sunfire 440's
Edit: Looks like they aren't anything interesting, atleast not now. My desktop is faster.
Can someone explain the draw of 2.5" SAS drives? These bitches are like 150GB and cost something like 900 dollars and we're constantly replacing them in our data center.
My 24-pin and CPU power 8-pin Bitfenix cables are coming in on Thursday.
Multipath I/O (fault-tolerance)
Error-recovery uses SCSI stuff instead of ATA SMART, more functionality.
Not to mention the whole SAS domain stuff.
Also, aren't they usually 10K or 15K RPM drives instead of 7200?
(Also also, if you don't want the Sun Fire V440, I'll take one)
I thoroughly enjoy the W8 bootloader.
I got rid of my linux partitions because the battery life with them is terrible.
Yum. Enterprise grade 2.5" drives are epic. Smaller platter = faster access times, problem is largest capacity you can get is 1TB in 2.5" 7,200RPM sata or SAS. I believe you can get 900GB in 2.5" 10K, which are around 400-600 a pop. I believe you can also get 300GB in 2.5" 15K. But honestly, if you care about random access, 10K 2.5" 900GB will be more than fast enough, and gives you a decent performance/GB. Some new 3.5" drives are now also using 2.5" platters, but in a 3.5" drive format.
Like you know, the velociraptors, they use a 2.5" drive, but are loaded in a 3.5" heatsink.
Also Server manufactors like Dell, HP, IBM etc usually uses drives from the likes of Seagate or Hitachi for enterprise. The reason they are alot more expensive than the usual OEMS, are because of custom firmware, and HP uses Dual port SAS for higher I/O throughput. SAS also has better ECC, and various RAS features.
Yet another feature in Chrome that exists, and I had no idea it did.
Watching some Top Gear, need to convert mph into kmh.
(mph into kmh is the same conversion as miles into kilometers since you can eliminate h from the equation)
I love that feature. Unit conversions were never my strong suit.
This is what I love.
After fighting with apache and SNMP, you get observium working, shits leet: Even supports IPMI :D
So you work for WebNX.
Some of my servers are in WebNX, they are rentals yes, I got such a great deal it was hard to pass on. Once SB-E releases, we'll be building servers on that platform forsure.
PS: I plan on leaving my current company soon and working by myself, also wingless, once I get my grant, I'm flying you to California to work on some awesome stuff with me.
PPS: DONT TELL ANYONE! EDIT: Who cares, we're all friends right?
That I didn't really care about, a simply rdns on my IP blocks will show that they are from WebNX. I believe we have 2 /28's and 2 /27's. from them currently.
But you....just told everyone
It was sarcasm. My team & I have a very nice relationship. Sadly, I feel that they are holding me back of my potential. But to each his own.
as most of you can tell, I'm very open to things.
The servers are hosted remotely ( Can't risk dun-goofing and paying for remote hands, it's expensive ), plus, I needed to get most of these machines up within a short period of time, and since 2.6.18 worked fine for what we're doing, no point in fixing something that aint broken. For my own in-house built machines, they will be running custom compiled kernals for sure :)
I don't understand. why?
I dislike this Pure.Joseph fellow already, no offense sir.
My god.Go read the comments, people are fucking stupid if they can't tell that that's fake. Then the guy who uploaded it has the dumbest sense of "Oh it'll work if I do this shit because I don't even know how the PSVita will load stuff or any of this I mean it isn't even released and he supposedly has GTA IV running on it.God I hate him already.
immediately noticed how fake it was 2 seconds in when he moved the psp and the game didnt move at all
I like how comments need his approval.
Because it's dumb humans, why can't the smart just kill the dumb off through tests that only smart can solve? Like, build a computer without help or something I don't know.
Scratch that, it's because I get mad at small shit like that.
Dude, this reminds me. There was this one guy on youtube, he made it like EXTREMELY important to say that his computer costed 5 grand.... It was i7 2600k in a case labs case, with only the CPU watercooled by a XSPC watercooling kit. He was 17, a redneck, and retardly cocky. I told him, ocool, I built a system with the similar cost, but #1 I don't brag about it, #2 who gives a shit how much the system cost. Then he decides to call me out, pics or it didnt happen. I posted CPU-Z + PICS, and he blocked me. LUL.
Mods don't ban me for linking to warez because I'm 90% sure this is fake anyway but here's another of his videos.
Ha it only has one link anyway.
