God bless Hirens Boot CD. Absoutely, by far, without a doubt, the best bootable recovery media out there. Has saved my ass so many times (and is actively saving my ass right now after

@NZgamer This *is* my backup solution, but it is nowhere near as robust as i'm comfortable with. Just a single drive.
Dream would be 4 8TB drives, 2 of which are parity, but I am holding off since WD seems to be slipping out some SMR drives out of late and I want to make SURE I dont get stuck with those.
@SenKa It's only SMR on the "low end" 1 to 4 TB drives but not on 8 to 16TB ones:
@Pascal... I thought I had read that WD had slipped some SMR 8TB drives in to their Red family. I was wrong.Quote
Seagate reached out to TechSpot and clarified that it does not market SMR-based hard drives as NAS drives. "Seagate confirms that we do not utilize Shingled Magnetic Recording technology (SMR) in any IronWolf or IronWolf Pro drives." The company's Barracuda 8TB (ST8000DM004) and 5TB Desktop (ST500DM000) were previously called out for using SMR without specifying the tech, however, the drives are not aimed at NAS consumers and should be treated as such.
Similarly, Toshiba's P300 4TB (HDWD240UZSVA) and 6TB (HDWD260UZSVA) desktop drives aren't directly aimed at the NAS market but they also use SMR without specifying it. In its documentation for the P300, the company says that the drive "delivers high performance for professionals," so buyers should know what they're getting before making a purchase.
This leaves Western Digital, which notes that its 2TB-6TB Red drives, aimed at NAS consumers, have device-managed SMR (DMSMR), while remaining models in the 8TB-14TB capacities use CMR (Conventional Magnetic Recording).
r/murderedbywords is a literal cesspool of toxic western liberalism. That is all
One thing all this staying at home nonsense has done great for me, is given me the time i needed to work on my personal health...
Im drinking 1L of water daily, minimum. Finally have the time to cook some good meals for myself, feeling lots less stressed... Moneys getting a bit tight, but eh. I'm getting by more than fine for now and feeling better than i have in YEARS.

So, finally got around to fixing my 2014 MBA. Needed the board to be pulled and cleaned, due to some oxidization causing USB instability. Thats done, and im seriously considering if i REALLY need a 2020 air...
This still feels plenty snappy, even inside my vanilla windows 10 VM.
gah... im gonna hold out for the 13" MBP refresh. The new air looks SO close to being perfect, but as somebody who actually uses programs like VMWare Fusion on the go and very well may peg my CPU at 100% often I can't quite justify it at $1300 (EDU discount). Maybe if I could get some stupid deal and get a 4 core with 16GB RAM for $1100 I'd jump on it...?
For the record, my now retired 2014 air held up VERY well with the above tasks. I was storage limited more than anything, since it was a 128GB model. But fusion ran great, final cut and resolve were fine (I do very light editing on the go, nothing crazy). I'm gonna daily my air again and see how it holds up to my current daily (thinkpad t430).
God I really WISH the butterfly switch worked out. It felt so good to type on. I have spent a while writing on them and absolutely LOVED them.
But, i've also written on the new "magic keyboard" and it felt great as well. Given the extra reliability of the magic keyboard, I'll take the trade off in the end.
Is there an official case size cutoff for what is and isn't an SFF case?
The next largest case type, the mini-tower, is usually defined as a case that stands 12" - 18" tall. We could probably label cases that are shorter than 12" - 18" as SFFs? I couldn't find an exact size or volume cutoff for SFF cases, however. The general consensus seems to be a wishy-washy, "SFFs are smol."Spoiler
Sources: Small Form Factor Buyers’ Guide by Anandtech, Types of Computer Cases and Motherboard Form Factors by Utilize Windows, Small Form Factor and Computer Case on Wikipedia.
we've generally accepted intel's definition (surprise! i lost the link to the old pdf though ,_,) of 20L and smaller (20 x 1,000,000 cubic millimeter or 1,000 cubic centimeter), but SFF purists and extreme enthusiasts tend to prefer going lower than 10L
it's less strict for contemporary discussion, but cases that only mount ITX boards would be held to the standard more closely, especially if an ATX motherboard could float in there
there is a separate but somewhat parallel school of thought called Space Efficiency, where a case would have very little empty space when loaded, all while not impeding airflow and thermal performance. SFF cases tend to easily check that aspect, but specific cases above 20L could also be space efficient (e.g.: servers)
either way, if you can't do this to your build for more than 10 minutes, it's unlikely that people would regard it as SFF
I just got my viper ultimate in. God i feel like an idiot for ever using my G903 now...
Would anybody else be in the market for a dual chamber ITX PC case with single (splitter needed ofc) ATX PSU support? One chamber can hold a system with a GPU and the other can hold a system + HBA with a whole wack ton of hard drives?
Just me? Im working on building it regardless
Was just about to take logitech off my good brand list at the top of my signature, only to realize i forgot to put them there in the first place. Anyways, I will not be buying from them again.

@Eschew Lied to my face about fixing the double click issues that plague the G903, GPW, and other mice. Failed to honor warranty.
Their products are great (the double click issue is Omiron's issue, not logi's directly), but once i get blatantly lied to TWICE in the span of 5 minutes on a phone call after waiting a half hour for the pleasure of aforementioned lying I just can't give that company any more of my business.
Razer has treated me very well thus far, they are my current recommendation for peripherals (save for headsets, I have not used Razer's headsets at all and can't speak to them). If you like the G903 but want a mouse that will last more than 7 months of use (how long my SECOND G903 lasted. The one i have now), buy a Viper Ultimate. The way it handles charging is much more elegant than logi, the dongle can go in the mouse for travel, the sensor is of equal or better quality, the wireless latency is even lower than the G903/GPW (effectively identical to wired in every measurable way), AND the switches are optical and thus shouldn't trigger accidentally.
NOTE: I am a claw gripper, with 19x11cm hands. YMMV with comfort.
Aight, i know liquid screen protectors aren't all that great at protecting your screen, but i have found a use for them. My 11 Pro Max, which was scratched like crazy (micro scratches, the glass is very soft to these), now looks almost new with an application of $10 liquid glass i bought at walmart.
Christmas season has me a bit drained, BUT i did replace my well-worn MM300 extended with an MM300 Medium. The full mousemat thing wasn't for me, but the medium size fits perfectly in my space.
I will say, the quality has gone up since I bought my first like 2 years ago
Ya boy got a 32" 1440P 144HZ HDR Curved monitor for christmas. Its a big boi and I love it
Latest kick has been chasing records in Wreckfest, fitting as leaderboards were just reset due to track changes. High as #2 on some tracks, having lots of fun!
Latitude E4200 is very usable on Windows 10 once you de-crapify it. It really is amazing how much a de-crapification does.
@Pascal... I do, but it had Windows installed and I didn't feel like installing linux to be testing an unknown laptop.
There is 1GB of soldered RAM on this laptop, and it is bad. No BSOD, but lots of screen corruption at random. I paid nothing for it, so a free MSATA SSD is nice.
@SenKa Ah ok, I thought it was your personal laptop for a moment there.
Having issues getting a concrete answer, is the L9i better than a Corsair H50 in a case with a side panel intake?
Im almost certain specific iCloud bypass talk is against the rules.
So all I'll say is its a thing of beauty and on an unrelated note that Saunders Tech is a pretty cool channel!
DISCLAIMER: I did not steal any phone I iCloud bypass. They have not been marked as stolen in any database I could look at. iPhones allow you to remotely disable a phone even after it has been reset.
Got fed up with the NAS case options on the market being utterly shite or overpriced. Making my own. It's going well so far, Autodesk Inventor feels right at home for me as an ex solidworks user.
Currently have rear IO done, going for MATX as it is small enough but can still house every "SFF" standard on the market. Being MATX, MDTX, DTX, and ITX.
