    This_guy1998 got a reaction from Herman Mcpootis in Help on building a PC that runs most games VERY well and runs VMs under VMware very well   
    This build is great but I think the OP wanted that $1500 to include the peripherals too.

    Yes but if those rules have been revised or amended, we wouldn't know, nor would we know when any new rules took affect.
     
    Either way, I'm not convinced the kid paid for bot subs. There's not enough evidence to suggest that.

    Presumably the metric is much easier to “achieve” since there are more people watching videos now. 
     
    So rather than increase the milestone, they make you apply so they weed out people who can’t be assed?

    So another chance for people to spend $2,000 on GPU coolers, and 2x the MSRP on last generation keyboards?

    Apparently, the 2nd round of the NCIX auction has a lot more stuff that wasn't sold at all at the 1st auction. Plus there is some stuff that didn't sell the first time.
    Main Auction: https://www.ableauctions.ca/auction?aAuctionId=d589b662-0d89-4dcd-a623-3eacf2f69874

    Being open to reason yourself would be a good start. If this thread is anything to go by he's clearly right to not trust your decision making.

    This_guy1998 got a reaction from leadeater in can a school(usa) sue for server space use   
    They are probably out of room and need the space. In high school they gave everyone 500mb and my last two years of HS they pushed everyone to use the space in their Google Drive. They even ran out of space on their shared server one time and I thank they had to delete stuff. With that said I knew people that had games installed and the teacher made them remove them.
     
    Even now at college they limit us to 4gb on our network drive and that is for everything (desktop, documents, and such) and you can't save locally because the PC wipes itself after you log off. Personally I don't use their computers that much and instead use my iPad and desktop in my dorm room (I have a laptop I use sometimes but it's a heavy gaming laptop). Also I have 1tb of space on my school's OneDrive account and I pay for that in tuition.
     
    With that said you don't own the servers and if you go read your handbook it probably says not to be gaming on it. You there to learn (even if it's blowoff thale last bit, it was for me and I only needed one class to graduate my last semester).

    This_guy1998 got a reaction from Canada EH in can a school(usa) sue for server space use   
    You got a good point there. I pay around $400-500 a year for technology services. I think mine is a little higher because I am an IT major, but we get access to things other people don't like VMWare ESXI Servers (I think it's called Horizon now), a Suse Server for programing, and other things like MS Dreamspark (has MS software licenses).
     
    Keep in mind that is probably the total space of the server and they don't know how to set space quotas. My high school had passwords sets to our mascot, Password1, and other stupid stuff and the school quickly learned their lesson. Even after that a student got into a teacher's share somehow, took a test key, give it out because she didn't believe him, and then the school expelled him and took him to court. The court ended up throwing the case out but he was still expelled.
     
    They would probably take you to court for pirating (I knew some people that did that while the firewall was down and passwords were still Password1) because they might have gotten a thing from their ISP threating to take legal action for pirating at some point too. That is a thing here in the US, at most colleges they make us install a program that is supposed to prevent pirating on our computers in addition to their firewall, but I have never tried it to see what happens because I don't pirate.

    For fun, I've put together a Thinkmate 22 NVMe server configuration which is priced at $152,890.00 with each NVMe slot providing 6.4 tb of storage from Micron Max Series 9200 U.2 PCI-e. It basically provides 140 TB of storage with insane IO performance and essentially provides 13 GB of storage for each student in a University with 11,000 students with just one server alone, you basically can buy 4 or 5 same servers and accomplish that goal of giving each student 50 GB of shared drive space with the grand total cost of about $611,560.00 which also have 1.5 tb of RAM, 2 x Twenty-Two-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor 2.40GHz and 2x 100Gb EDR Infiniband PCI-e for each server.
     
    So when you're building servers to scale, it is generally pretty affordable.

    Has anyone tried to go to ncix.com lately? I did today and it won't load for me. I was mainly curious if their website finally came down considering they aren't in business anymore and it was still up.
    Also here is a list of items that are being auctioned off from NCIX if anyone wants to look. http://bid.ableauctions.ca/NCIX-Richmond-Auction_as51658
     
    Edit: Nevermind the site is back up.

    This_guy1998 got a reaction from kalnick in NCIX / NETLINK COMPUTER INC Bankruptcy Auction   
    I know one thing is that according to exncix staffs on reddit, there wasn't enough inventory to build a complete PC. Keep in mind some pictures show CPUs most than likely those were for testing and such. NCIX in addition to selling parts, they ran a PC building business and had NCIX Tech Tips. The big concern for ex-employees (and maybe some customers?) is personal data getting leaked. Alot of times when bankrupt companies have their HQ liquidated the office PCs and Servers don't get wiped. Those PCs could contain anywhere from resumes to personal info like names, addresses, phone numbers, CC info, and Social Security #s (or whatever Canada equivalent is).  The auction company just wants to make as much money as possible to pay off debt without regards to privacy.

    Bad decisions by the owner. Mainly investing in the stores instead of online. Also he made some other bad business decisions that affected ncix. Go check out reddit.com/user/exncix and Reddit.com/user/exncixstaff
