  1. Just going to post a couple of Scientific studies/reports about 5G and health effects. Take them as you will. I personally am willing to trust them given the years of study and research under their belts /credentials and detail in the studies. The results are interesting and minorly concerning depending on the technology deployed. 5G can be used for amazing things. It is the implementation that is what needs to be scrutinized. Do I think 5G causes Covid? NO. Do I think more study is needed to analyze the effects of the 5G bands being used? HELL YES https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/we-have-no-reason-to-believe-5g-is-safe/ https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1438463917308143 https://slt.co/Downloads/News/1102/5G - IEEE with Health comments.pdf https://thecalm.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/5G-Wireless-Technology_Millimeter-Wave-Health-Effects.pdf Millimeter waves bio effects CIA Declassified in 2012 Zalyubovskaya 1977.pdf
  2. Since no one here seems to have even mentioned it, why not consider it? Or even try it out. If you want to see what it is about, you are welcome to try it out on my test server. I fired one up for a couple of tech podcasters who were looking for alternatives to Zoom.
  3. Jitsi has been around for a long time. Just because no one you have seen here talks about it doesnt mean no one else does. Level1Techs does, most other tech communities have at least mentioned it at some point. How many people do you know of who talk about Mastodon? Matrix? alternatives to mainstream services? Federation services?
  4. Have you tried using Zoom? Zoom has loads of issues. Their servers are overloaded for example. As to why? Jitsi doesnt require a 10gig pipe. They just recommend one. I have an instance running on a gigabit pipe without issues. Video Conferencing is a great way to socially interact outside of physically seeing someone. Some would ask WHY LTT would spend all that cash to run a Minecraft server....and bandwidth considering Minecraft can and will eat all available bandwidth if you let it. And that is just one server while LTT is running how many instances? What does LTT gain from running a Jitisi Server? The same they would get from running a Folding Server or a Minecraft Server or any community server. Providing gratis options for people to interact with each other is a very philanthropic endeavor. LTT doesnt charge for access to their Minecraft server do they? They don't charge for access to the folder server either. Neither do they for Discord. I fail to see the validity of either of your arguments.
  5. Jitsi Meet is not like Discord. Jitsi Meet is a Video conferencing server. EG: Zoom.
  6. Given the current pandemic going on, everyone is gravitating towards one of several conferencing services eg: Zoom, Citrix, Skype, MS Teams. On the other hand, Jitsi Meet is a solid option and you can run your own server. Jitisi Meet is free and open source. It would be awesome if LTT fired up their own Jitsi Meet server given the 10Gig pipe. Jitsi themselves recommend using a 10gig pipe for a Jitsi server. While it does work fine on a 1gig pipe, if you get a large influx of users, that 1gig pipe will saturate very quickly and quality will degrade. I myself am currently running one on a DigitalOcean droplet for testing and so far it has passed all the tests. The only real issue is finding an affordable 10gig VPS. Given the privacy concerns of many of the conferencing services (See Zoom privacy report from Protonmail), having the LTT group fire up a Jitisi Meet server would be an awesome way to help the wider community interact during this lovely time in our lives. https://jitsi.org/jitsi-meet/
  7. the T710 is not hotswap like the T420. You have to take the entire faceplate of the chassis off to access the drives.
  8. Something like this? https://www.amazon.com/SEALIGHT-9005-HB3-Non-Polarity-Replacement/dp/B07LGL43QF/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?keywords=High%2BIntensity%2BLed%2Bheadlight&qid=1551313542&refinements=p_72%3A1248861011&rnid=1248859011&s=automotive&sr=1-2-spons&th=1
  9. Im already aware of the AMD support. The 2200G DOES NOT support it. None of the APUs do.
  10. Im told NEVER to run ZRaid with hardware RAID. Also, 2200G does not support ECC RAM. If you meant to say add an HBA card, then I can do that. But a Hardware RAID card... no.
  11. I want to stay DOT compliant for Inter-state travel. Blue last I checked is not legal across state lines. Plus I want to have the bulbs last a long time. AFAIK, HIDs take a bit to warm up and will get quite hot. From what I hear they also go out sooner.
  12. I am looking to buy or build a FreeNAS server. I want Hotswap hard drive bays. I am going for RaidZ2 and have purchased 8x 4TB WD Red drives. I prefer a Tower chassis as I do not have a free-standing RACK. I want to spend less than $1k on the server. I will be running Plex and using it as a file server and possibly a VPN server. I have a quote from ServerMonkey for a Dell Poweredge T320 with 1x Xeon 2403, 16GB ECC, 1x 1TB HDD, all the trays and the PSU. They quoted me around $860. Any suggestions on alternatives? Is this a good price for a refurb T320? Any build suggestions?
  13. I am in the market for LED headlight conversion kits so I can upgrade the headlights on my 2006 Toyota Highlander Limited. Any suggestions? Im going for 6000K color. I also need new housings unless I can find someone to remove the huge film and burn-through on my existing housings.
