    AMD Polaris Giveaway

    My 780 isn't exactly chugging on the games I play, but it's about time for an upgrade.
  2. I'm looking to replace my current frankensteined FreeNAS server with something a bit more build-to-purpose. I've found this listing on ebay, and it seems like a pretty sweet deal. To preface, I already have HDDs to populate this and projects in mind to utilize its specs. I'm mostly just interested in "does this seem to be a pretty good deal?". Price: $289.74 USD (with discount) Case: Supermicro 2U X8DTN+ (12x 3.5" hot swap bays) CPU: 2x Xeon L5630 RAM: 12x 4GB ECC DDR3 (doesn't list model) PSU: x2 800W (doesn't list model) Other: LSI MR SAS 8708EM2 raid controller The CPUs are pretty dated at this point, and the hardware is used. Although, for the price I can't really complain. My original goal was a rackmount case with at least 8x 3.5" drive slots, 24+GB ECC RAM, and as much CPU horsepower as I can squeeze out. That idea had a budget of less than $700. By that criteria, this listing seems to be a gold mine, even if I need to find a different JBOD card, instead of the included RAID card. Any input?

    OpenVPN Routing

    I'm a bit in over my head with networking issues at the moment. Device 1: raspberry pi running transmission-daemon and openVPN client connecting to PIA servers. Local IP - 192.168.1.134 Device 2: pfSense box running an openVPN server. VPN traffic binds to 192.168.69.* Device 3: external device, successfully connected to device 2's openVPN server with a local IP of 192.168.69.6 The transmission service running on device 1 has a web GUI accessible at port 9091. The issue is that any device (connected virtually to my local network or not) that is NOT on the 192.168.1.* segment is able to ping device 1, but not access the web GUI on port 9091. I've narrowed things down, and it seems to be solely an issue with what device 1 treats as "local" traffic that doesn't need to be routed through the VPN. I've tried to use this in my openvpn config file, but things still don't work: route add 192.168.69.0 mask 255.255.255.0 gw 192.168.1.134" My complete openvpn config file at the moment: client dev tun proto udp remote us-east.privateinternetaccess.com 1194 resolv-retry infinite nobind persist-key persist-tun ca ca.crt tls-client remote-cert-tls server auth-user-pass login.conf comp-lzo verb 1 reneg-sec 0 crl-verify crl.pem auth-nocache I've also verified that device 3, when connected to the openVPN server of device 2, is able to connect to device 1's web GUI with no problem but only when I disable device 1's VPN client to PIA. Therefore, something about the VPN configuration on device 1 is denying traffic from anything that doesn't share a LAN segment with device 1 (on 191.168.1.*). Any ideas I could try?

    Halp! possible portable hard drive problem

    Nope, no issues with your files for using this formatting type. And yeah, it's really that easy to reformat the drive. Here's a MS support link if you need help with it: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-format-hard-disk-partition#create-format-hard-disk-partition=windows-7

    Halp! possible portable hard drive problem

    Like ALwin mentioned above, the only restriction here is how your format the drive. You can buy whatever external hard drive you'd like. Fat32 will have read/write access on both MacOS and Windows. If you need files sizes bigger than 4GB, exFat is the way to go. It removes the file size limit (effectively) and still maintains read/write access on mac and PC. Alternatively, you can format 2 separate partition on the drive.

    How to set up f.lux

    By default, f.lux has a hotkey to change the screen brightness until sunrise. "alt+PgUp and alt+PgDn" It's a bit manual, but like you said there's no way for flux to detect your room lighting. I usually find that a screen brightness slightly higher than ambient brightness works well for me. As far as setup for the program, all your really need to do put in your location so the program knows when sunset is for you. I also prefer the "dim slowly (60min)" option in the settings menu (right click on the notification area icon for flux). You should really tune your monitor to a "typical" daytime brightness for your room, then let flux adjust for you after the sun sets in conjunction with the dimming hotkey, if you need it. So, I'd just leave your monitor contrast and brightness how you like it right now.

    Help me troubleshooting my internet connection please

    You could try putting in a support ticket with your ISP. At the very least, after they reset everything on their side, you can pretty much eliminate your ISP as the issue.

    Help me troubleshooting my internet connection please

    That's normal actually. LoL is using the internet, so you'd expect other applications to slow down if you're already maxing out the internet connection you have. Especially at that <10Mb/s connection you have, not everything can be up to full speed at all times.

    Cheapo UPS for home NAS

    What about something like this? It's not exactly the best thing money can buy, but it also gets the job done without catching fire. I know for certain it's also compatible with NUT and has a windows specific program with the same functionality (turn off when battery <50%, etc).

    Cheapo UPS for home NAS

    What's the host OS for the NAS? Here's a list of compatible UPSes with NUT (the typical linux and freebsd UPS connection software): http://www.networkupstools.org/stable-hcl.html

    Help me troubleshooting my internet connection please

    If you're trying to run a speedtest at the same time you're doing other task (like watching Youtube), oh yeah you'll see slower speeds. That's not a network problem, it's just capacity being used by the other tasks. Now if you're seeing slower speedtest even after you stop your other tasks, that could be an actual issue. If it's that second case, it sounds like either faulty network equipment on your end (old modem?) or ISP throttling.
  13. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/igfxpers.exe.html It seems to maintain your monitor resolution even when they get turned off or unplugged. Ships with graphics drives from intel or Nvidia. If it doesn't use way too many resources, I see no reason to turn it off.

    Questions about servers

    That'd be fine for what you're wanting to do. I can't personally speak for the Synology software they put on the thing, but it definitely has the functionality to act as a network share.

    Questions about servers

    Yes, that's called a NAS (Network Attached Storage). For that kind of budget you'd be looking at a cheaper synology or WD mycould style unit. Just make sure you don't buy a "diskless" model, unless that's what you want (e.g. it doesn't come with a hard drive). http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=nas
