    Y'all ever just get woken up at 2AM on a Saturday morning to the sound of a car horn, drag your ass out of bed to see what's up just to find a 32 year old woman A B S O L U T E L Y  P L A S T E R E D drove her car in reverse up your lawn narrowly missing a tree and thankfully deciding to stop before backing into your car?...
     
    I'd share pictures if I had them but the person who does isn't cooperating with me. Maybe later.
     
    So...how's your weekend going so far?

    I've made a decision. All future motherboards that I purchase be them for desktop or server use will come with IPMI.

    For when a 16 port layer 2 switch from TP-Link doesn't do it for you anymore. It even comes with a WebUI for configuration management.

    Well, an attempt was made at a joke but it flopped back in my face.
     
    You might be able to make out what you're looking at.
    The paste I used was simply too "wet" so-to-speak. It was paste I never had plans to use but I refuse to waste more for the sake of a joke. This is in reference to Thermaltakes new paste applicator.
     
    This is the stencil. The blue tape was to hold it in place and to control the mess:
    Massive waste of paste but again, the paste was worthless to me. Little tubes that came included with some waterblocks from like 6 years ago.
     
    Despite how hard this flopped I figured it'd still be appropriate to test the S P R E A D. I mounted an old XSPC LGA2011-0/3 waterblock on the CPU, tightened it down, and left it to heat up for a while:
     
    Results:
    Too much paste but would you look at that LTT S P R E A D S 😏 really well.
     
    Eh, I think I'm fine with my graphite sheets:
    The 1~2°C penalty I see is worth the convenience it provides. I use them in all my servers and temps are fine.

    One of the easiest ways to test inside China is actually Azure China, but to get an account you do have to jump through a few hoops to get it. If you really want/need that ability maybe consider that.

    I feel your pain though, we've got Chinese students that study remotely from China as well as ones that come over to NZ. One of the biggest problems is ensure good service quality and providing support along with investigating issues. What we used to do was get staff members or partner organizations who were over in China to do tests for us but one problem we hit is that the Chinese firewall and the internet within China isn't actually the same across the regions so you'll get slow performance for students living in one area but it'll be fine for others, or blocked one day then not block another. There never seemed to be any real central management or reasoning to anything.
     
    What we ended up doing was applying for a special VPN service that has an entry point located in China with a dedicated Site-to-Site VPN link to a Hong Kong datacenter and then a Site-to-Site VPN back to our datacenters in NZ. That actually solved all our problems and now students studying in China get the same experience as any other student from other countries. Have to tell you though the application process is long and complex with very strict rules around what you are allowed to let through that connection.
     
    Basically there is no quick easy way for general people to be able to test services from within China and that is exactly how they want it. It can be quicker and easier to just fly there.
