  1. Was so looking forward to this. They worked really hard on this build and to have it messed up in shipping is sad.
  2. Saw it on a truck yesterday. Could swear I’ve seen it somewhere before!
  3. I blame load shedding. Claim from Eskom
  4. Sounds like definitely your PSU that is faulty. best would be to test with another PSU to be honest. If you unplug all peripherals like hard drives etc does it have the same issue? To make sure nothing is shorting your board in your case you can see if it posts outside of the chassis. So take the board out and put it on a box, plug in the PSU only and try powering it on. to check that your PSU isn’t acting up / dead (which is weird as it is powering up) you can do the paper clip test. Unplug it from the wall and switch it to Zero. Take a ppaperclip and plug it into pin16 and any other black pin. Plug it in Switch the power supply to 1. Does it come on first time?
  5. Hello guys. studied Computer science but i took the business analysis route. I help companies through the SDLC and my current project is microservice based using all the technologies you guys are using like: Docker NodeJS Angular .NETCore AWS MongoDB TFS Rancher Prometheus and many more. . We're also using agile methodologies specifically SCRUM. Not looking for pay but would love to contribute where i can. let me know if i can help in any way
  6. Build a FreeNAS box. the OS is free. NAS is solid You can install a Unifi Docker container This server comes in at around a hundred quid http://www.serversplus.com/servers/tower_servers/hp_tower_servers/819185-421 However you will need to do some research on the drives you need. I do not recommend using used Hard Drives for your NAS. WD Purple are meant for surveillance WD Reds are made for NAS I do think the Reds will be okay though.
  7. Many Linux Distro's with KVM should allow this. Check that your hardware supports VT-x AND VT-d you will need IOMMU pass through for your Guest OS's to have access to the GPUs. Yes GPUs (plural). You need to be a little comfortable with the unix command line interface aswell. PROXMOX is a free and open source Hypervisor that may work. https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Pci_passthrough Give it a shot!
  8. Looking to build a NAS? Want enterprise grade RAID solution for your precious data? Looking to get into Virtualization and the wonderful world of Docker? Here's my sales pitch: I can highly recommend FreeNAS Corral. There's quite a lot of info on how to get started, but I thought it might be useful to share some tutorials i've done to help get people started: I've done tutorials on: Corral + Docker https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/docker-tutorial.52017/ Corral + Docker + PLEX https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/freenas-corral-docker-plex-container-howto.51780/unread Corral + Docker + Crashplan https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/freenas-corral-crashplan-docker-container-howto.51778/ Corral + Windows 10 VM https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/windows-10-in-a-freenas-bhyve-vm-howto.51896/ If you want to use Docker and VMs make sure your hardware supports VT-x (if you're on the blue team) OR AMD-v (if you're on the red team) Good luck!
  9. I have upgraded to Corral and although there are some cases where people have had issues. Having Docker + bhyve is much better in my opinion. 9.10 is a very mature OS but i recommend Corral for your needs definitely! It's also very pretty =) I've done tutorials on: Corral + Docker https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/docker-tutorial.52017/ Corral + Docker + PLEX https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/freenas-corral-docker-plex-container-howto.51780/unread Corral + Docker + Crashplan https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/freenas-corral-crashplan-docker-container-howto.51778/ Corral + Windows 10 VM https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/windows-10-in-a-freenas-bhyve-vm-howto.51896/ help yourself!
  10. Love the good ole speculation. Views are what keeps every channel alive, and if Linus has to ride the meta then so be it. I think it's a little more than More employees = more salary = I need more views = I need to make a thumbnail that is embarrassing to myself and all my subscribers. Not that I know Linus personally but something like changing the entire template for the video thumbnail was definitely more calculated and probably more prompted than a water cooler conversation. Do I like the thumbnails? No. They are repulsive, stupid and caused me to vomit a little in my mouth. Do I blame Linus? No. But if I were in his shoes, and my audience has now changed substantially and I needed to do this to increase viewers, I'd think about it. Not for too long but I'd definitely think about it. aside from that it's his channel and until I have a channel with over 3.5Million subs I will have to shut up =)
  11. Stock Lenovo Keyboard and Mouse. I do have a wrist pad though, So i've got that going for me
  12. Having it so close to the wall is brilliant. No having to play hopscotch to avoid faceplanting either yourself or the protector. That's if you don't have a ceiling mount of course.

  14. if you're just using for backups, you don't really care about performance and you don't want to go the freeNAS route: Maybe pickup a synology /QNAP device http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822108236&cm_re=synology-_-22-108-236-_-Product again don't cheap out on the drives go for WD RED's http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236599&cm_re=wd_red-_-22-236-599-_-Product If you get 2 x hard drives you can set it to RAID 1. This will give you no speed increase but added redundancy as the drives will be mirrored. ie. if one drive fails you will still have your data
  15. RAID 1/5/6/10 can be used for added redundancy. Do not confuse this with a good backup solution though. A good backup solution after your redundancy is 2 backups. One on-site and one off-site. Grab a little USB external device and use that for your on-site backup. And think of a cloud service for off-site backup. In terms of your drives, maybe go WD RED as it's made for NAS usage and 24/7 scenario like your use case. They are a little more expensive but have vibration protection and will last a little longer than greens/blues/blacks
