  • Biography
    Got into tech when I was younger. Had a Win98 system, and played a lot of the Microsoft Entertainment Pack.
    Then when some family members got 2 new systems running WinXP, I jumped in the hype train.

    It was LTT and the build guides that gave me the tools I needed to really kickstart my interest in tech, and the rest is history.
    Here I am, having built two towers so far, and a home network made out of 3 ASUS APs, a 24 port GbE switch, a 650VA PowerShield UPS, and a 40TB Synology NAS, with a 14TB external drive to hold our media library.
    Now I'm IT support for the family, and I'm the guy who they come to for advice and tech emergencies.

  1. 16TB Exos from a Seagate Desktop External? Aww yiss.

      Damn, Seagate actually cares enough to put a fan in their enclosures? Take notes, WD!

       

      Actually on second thought, don't. Less hardware in the enclosure means cheaper prices for the inevitable shucking 👀

      It's crazy how it works isn't it? You get a high end drive inside an external USB drive that's a standard SATA drive. Sure, you might lose out on warranties, but how much you can save is crazy.

      It's pretty nuts. Whenever I'm able to redo my server I'll be dealing basically exclusively with 12TB EasyStores (and a handful of 8TB drives), and the fact that you can get the 12's on sale for like $180 is absolutely absurd.

       

      EDIT: Speaking of the devil

  2. This is unlikely to work. My understanding is that the PCB and drive are tied together and you would have to reflash the firmware of the new PCB with the old one or transfer the firmware chip to get the two to play nice. If you tried without doing this the PCB wouldn't know the unique characteristics of the drive and wouldn't be able to find the data.
  3. Do you mean taking one signal, mirroring it to 2 screens? HDMI mirror boxes exist. [LINK]
  4. Saddened to hear a member of the team pass. Rest well, Tyler.
  5. 1825301146_DesktopScreenshot2020_11.26-21_35.18_35.png.09590c2f6ef8bd79e72f9a451d3b6c28.png

    At this rate I could download the entire internet.

  6. That's awfully hot for a drive, but to be expected during heavy transfers. Most external drives rely in convection currents through the vents of the enclosure or the metal to radiate heat in aftermarket enclosures. Still, I'm a little concerned with temperatures like that. What is the environment where the drive is running? I would suggest running a small fan across the top of the drive to help move the hot air away from the drive.
  7. Something I just discovered in Ralph Breaks the Internet. The IP address on the side of one of the trucks in the end credits links to Disney themselves. Nice touch Disney.

    Logitech G512 with Linear Switches.

      $183.98 AUD from Amazon.

  9. Revisiting some mods I got for UT2004 way back when.

     

    Roadkill Warriors is more or less Mad Max themed. Never finished, and bot support is non existant.

     

    Deathball is soccer for UT2004. (The bots actually chat with typical gamer's chat terms, which I find quite unique)

    The more finished of the two.

  10. If you've got HDSentinel Pro, select the drive from the list on the left, click the surface test button, then use the dropdown menu and then select "Disk repair (Read test with sector repair". This will force the drive to reallocate weak areas of the drive to the spare area.
  11. This means that the checksum (integrity check) of the data didn't add up. Could you download, install and provide a screencap of CrystalDiskInfo please?
  12. Twin Dual Samsung SSDs now in my laptop! Took the 1TB from my desktop and put it in here to upgrade from the 480GB one in my laptop.

  13. Just finished installing this guy into my tower! 2TB is most definitely better than one.

    Took some commands from diskpart to get it bootable, but it's up and running.
