  1. I finished this course from udemy on beginner full stack web development, it used node.js and Mongodb for api control. I do not like MongoDB with how it handles the database- as one programmer's bad usage or manual insert means the database table itself could just die. I am not looking specifically for sql, but I would like to be able to use C# for API, as I have a large personal preference for that language (and I am much better at it than Javascript. I have personal gripes with how it handles stuff, blah blah more complaining. I want to pretty much reduce Javascript as much as I can, only for client side usage). Now, when I try to search around with c# API, I get a lot of articles and posts with cross origin resource sharing, and how it can cause problems and possibly security risks? I lack knowledge in this part. But what I am also confused a bit with, is how I can send post/get/put/etc requests through a normal website (say serviced through nginx, the only thing I know because the course I did), but send the request to the second running C# program/service that wait's for API calls. What I am understanding is the user gets webpage, and then it has buttons to perform actions. How does the actions work in getting api responses since the api is hosted in the cloud, but there is no direct link. (This course i fully did, had way too little instructing on the need to knows with the language- but not exactly how things play together. I did not know react was a one page webapp library until I finished the course and went to the website to look around more)
  2. I am planning to do an exploded PC wall piece- but i see my PS4 Pro just sitting there turning into a jet engine, no matter how clean it is. So, I want to mount it up with my PC, but cheapen the costs with an AIO (Not much difference from normal loop beside cheap and prebuilt). Anyways, once I mount an AIO (probably 240mm, only a couple bucks extra for extra assurance of quicker equilibrium), how can I power it in a way that I do not need my computer powered 24//7 as the power source. I do not want to hand solder any adapters, as I do not want to break anything or cause any fires.
  3. It was only $15 (+ shipping. why is there shipping cost in this day of age on amazon? ), here is a link: https://www.amazon.com/Computer-Lovers-CPU-Reference-Guide/dp/1075611113/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=computer+lover+cpu+guide&qid=1562743235&s=gateway&sr=8-1
  4. I was wandering around Amazon, and found this neat book about processors. The first 20 or so pages seam to be general introduction to processors with some data that may conflict with some peoples personal choices, while after that is pages of tables of processors. I think the rear of the book seams very useful for its kind of easy way to find a processor without going on Google or without having any internet- something ive struggled with before (somehow my boss expecting me to know what all 800+ xeon processors are).
  5. That documentation is great and all, but I cannot even find this "storage spaces" tool in windows server 2016 when I search it up or perform a basic run command for it. In Disk Management, I create 2 mirrors or 2 stripes, then when I right click them- there is no other options to mirror/stripe those together into RAID10/01. On my 5th attempt, doing everything the exact same using the cheap raid card I have. 2 disks are clearly striped together, but the other 2 are just not used AT ALL even though I tell it to. If I remove either disk A or B, then nothing happens. If I remove either disk C or D, then the entire RAID/volume becomes unrecognizable until I plug it back in. 6th attempt. I tried this time with storage pool, all 4 disks into a single one in "mirror", and in my file transfers I was getting much faster speeds. I do not know how to tell if it really worked or not in the end.
  6. Can you explain or provide a source that explains how to make this? I’ve tried making 2 mirrors, but there was no option to stripe them together to make RAID 10. I won’t be able to get the money to build a proper server, getting a real server/raid card and some actual performance(stuck with the cheap ~$25-30 card that was lying around) for a long time.
  7. I have to build a proof of concept server for a small business I work at (I am the only one with enough knowledge and basic training to do so), and I have had no luck with the final step of creating a RAID 10. I am permitted to only 4 drives max and they must be RAID 10, and using a cheap 4 SATA port PCI adapter card (with built in basic raid of 1, 0, 10 and something else). Anyways, when I try to implement RAID 10 with Windows Server 2016 or the PCI card, neither actually do it right (Or I do something wrong). They chain into a single drive, but everything is just stored to a single disk, as when that single disk gets pulled- the entire virtual disk stops working and all the data is lost. The other 3 drives can be removed while the system is running (Smart, I know. Surprised it has not puffed into smoke so far), but there is always just that one single disk that is only used even with the striping at a small 8kb and files at 1GB+. I was never taught about even how to make a RAID from the IT course I took, so I can easily be making the wrong choices somewhere. I also know it was just 1 drive holding all the data because I could shut the server down, and individually look at all the drives where 3 are un-allocated and 1 has completely readable data including an ~4GB video that plays no problem. I cannot even find any tutorials on how to do it, as most go over RAID 5 and 6. I need RAID 10 as I could be away for a week+ with no one there having the ability to switch the correct drive out, so the redundancy will be major data saving. This is the final step I need before I can show off the demo server, so I can get the money to get the actual parts and software needed to finish this Frankenstein of a server (ex-computer turned server, built by someone else who decided that it was best to have 2x2GB and 1x4GB of DDR3 RAM).
