  1. I am fairly sure that "Related Channels" is not something that the Channel can choose, but rather is decided by some algorithm. The bit where you choose what is displayed is the "Featured Channels".
  2. Maybe this is a case of double negatives, like two awfuls making a godly product.
  3. I almost feared that would be the case. There is a total of 1 candidates on aliexpress for 219.99$ (wow). Unfortunately a newer board would also need a bunch of other new hardware I didn't want to buy (cpu, mem)
  4. You should probably verify that what you are downloading is what you want (use some kind of cryptographic signatures) because otherwise that sound like a security nightmare. Also including passwords in plain text files is a bad idea. You could probably create some kind of image with all the software that you need installed on it and then deploying that on your computers. Alternatively there was some powershell commandlet to install software from a repository or you could look into something like this: https://chocolatey.org/
  5. I am looking to buy an mITX Z77 motherboard. I am currently located in Central Europe (Germany mostly). Where can I find one? eBay is the obvious choice but rather limited (found 1) and a bit insanely priced (87+25€ wtf). None of the normal online retailers stock them anymore.
  6. Also, they run their own POS software, which I don't want to mess with. I just noticed that german pcpartpicker has actually become kind of useful. I'll try something there. Well, if I find enough money to go balls to the walls: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/DG6Wqk with RAIDZ2 that would be 18TB of storage. A bit overkill if you ask me. Don't think I am willing to spend that much.
  7. Apologies accepted. Frankly, the site is a bit shite about it's infos. I have a lot of POS 3TB Barracudas which are probably about to fail, and can't be used for this (They actually have the data on them). I would either be buying 4x4TB or 4x3TB to plop into a NAS (and a NAS of course).
  8. This doesn't make any sense. Why would HP make an enterprise device with 4 hard drive bays and not enough power to power four hard drives? WD lists it's red drives at <2A spin up (~24W) and ~10W while i/o, this would give less than 100W for spinning up, and ~40W while all are spinning. I have no idea how you think that it would only be able to power "maybe 1 internal drive". My budget doesn't really exist per-se, it is just as cheap as possible (<1000€ including drives would be marvelous).
  9. I am looking to moving my data from a cluster of random Barracudas to a NAS. (Not a high performance NAS, more of an on-line archive thing, don't worry, I'll be getting proper backups too at some point) Looking at hardware I found this: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B013UBCHVU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3JWKAKR8XB7XF&psc=1 Now I am a bit confused by this, HP's site lists these for a lot more. Would this be a good idea? I doubt that I can find anything cheaper to do the job. Can I install my own flavour of GNU/Linux on it? I have about 6.6TB of data right now, and it is continually growing, so I thought a RAIDZ1 with 4x3TB would give enough space for the forseeable future (9TB), and when I need more, I can swap in bigger drives. TL;DR: Is the linked product good for a 4x3TB RAIDZ1 thing?
  10. No Arch Linux? No Gentoo? No Fedora? No Debian? Welp, currently Arch Linux. Somehow just feels like GNU/Linux+systemd, which is nice, because I really like systemd.
  11. Heia! I recently moved to Norway and I was wondering where Norwegians buy their electronics stuff. We have a Elkjøp in town, but I did either not find the things I was looking for (ND filters, DP-HDMI adapters), or they were kinda expensive (SD cards). So where do you people buy things on the semi-cheap? Tusen takk
  12. 1. What router? 2. What encryption? Wireless encryption? You should enable that.
