  1. In AMD’s defence, web-based management utilities are pretty much par for the course for hardware raid cards. ..
  2. LTT Movie

    I’ve heard worse ideas.. no idea where to even begin on something like this tho....
  3. Help with Adaptec series 5 raid card

    Is it a 4kn sector drive? You should post the part number. Many older RAID and HBA cards are not compatible with 4Kn drives. You'll need 512e drives.
  4. The real trick with used stuff is to find the hardware that has already depreciated a lot of what it will depreciate in the next year or two. So then you buy it use it for the next little while flip it for maybe 70 to 80% of what you paid and effectively you got to use it for next to nothing and you can put what you gain back towards something a little newer but that's depreciated from being brand new as well.

  6. Where are the videos?

    I am dealing with this personally. It's a fringe case, but one that's unavoidable with the forum's janky integration with PayPal. The new system will work better.. which doesn't help anyone who is on the current one.. but for us the development time is FAR better allocated to making the new site great than to patching holes in one we plan to abandon very shortly. /thread - locking this
  7. Finding Scrapyard Wars!!

    The new site will have much better tagging/playlist management.... Stay tuned!

    Great question - right now we're using PayPal for payment processing, and once we move to the new site we'll be using a different solution. We won't be storing any actual payment information (like credit card numbers). As for addresses and phone numbers, etc. Let me get back to you on that one.

    Got an official response: Sorry for the trouble, please resync your account here and try again. https://linustechtips.com/main/floatplane_resync.php If it doesn't work please email Floatplanehelp@gmail.com and we'll be happy to help figure out what's going on.

    argh... I hate PayPal and its integration with this forum sooooooo much... I'll have someone reach out..

  12. I don’t think we disagree as much as you think we do.
