    I understand the need for companies to collect relevant data to market products to consumers. But it seems like you can't even take a dump without companies wanting to know about it.

    Hey all, I'm currently taking a course on social implications of a computerized society and as a group project, we're currently conducting a survey. If any of you are willing to take several minutes to answer some questions for us, that will be greatly appreciated! You can directly PM me if you have any questions or concerns.

    I don't normally post crap like this...but seems like a heck of a deal for people looking for a 1U server that can take 3.5" drives... I already have a Dell R410 but found this while browsing eBay. This is not my listing BTW.

    If you want to add another CPU you need another heatsink, I've seen those on Ebay for around $10...

    So I finally got my card in from the Chinese eBay boat. Excitedly I popped it in my test server to try it out before taking down my main machine. So far it has just been plug and play... add a card, it shows up in ESXI. Well....not this time. After installing the card and booting ESXI it would show up in available devices but would not show up in physical NICs. I could even pass the damn thing through to a VM and even PFsense picked it up and would use it no problem...so I knew we had a driver issue... Well after bashing my head against the wall trying to find out how to get the stupid Intel 10Gb card to show up in ESXI I finally found a driver that will work. Anyone that is having a hell of a time getting an Intel X540 or (especially) the X550 10Gb card working properly in ESXI 6.5, I'm going to save you some time...
     
    Driver found here...
    https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=DT-ESXI60-INTEL-IXGBE-451&productId=491
     
    File manager I used found here...
    https://winscp.net/eng/download.php
     
    SSH client I used found here...
    https://www.putty.org/
     
     
    Here is how to install it...
     
    Extract the .zip file of the driver. You'll either install the .vib driver or update it using the zip offline bundle. (use the offline bundle if you're using an OEM version of ESXI)               Open ESXI web interface or go to your server and enable SSH (on server it is found in troubleshooting)
    Open WinSCP and log into your server by tying your server's address in host name (red), login user (root) and password (blue), then click login (black)
    Once inside WinSCP, copy the .vib file or the update offline bundle zip file in the tmp directory by just dragging from your downloads folder and dropping it into WinSCP. Now open Putty and type your server IP address in host name  
    Inside Putty type the user (root), enter, then your password Verify the file is in the tmp directory by typing... ls /tmp Then install the driver by typing... esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/net-ixgbe_4.5.1-1OEM.600.0.0.2494585.vib Or install the update by typing... esxcli software vib update -d /tmp/ixgbe-4.5.1-2494585-offline_bundle-5197765.zip That's it, you're done! Now you just need to reboot the host and setup your card. A bit of a disclaimer, I did NOT use the offline bundle so I can't vouch for if it works or not.

    So Microsoft added back from translucent affects to Edge, Settings, and some other apps, I dig that. But it seems rather unfinished for them to not give Windows Explorer the same treatment. If they added translucent affects to the tabs area of Edge, surely they could've done it to the windows title bars as well.
