  1. TFW you order a Corsair RM750x off Amazon for an upcoming server/workstation build but they send you a RM850x instead...






    I don't know what happened, but I'm not saying anything unless they contact me. That's an extra 100W I can do something with for the price of a 750W. 😄

      I doubt they'll ask for it back. Amazon makes enough money that they don't really care when those kinds of things happen. On many occasions my parents have gotten a refund on an item, and Amazon didn't even ask them to ship it back. They just said to keep it.

  2. I was doing this a couple years back when I broke the microUSB port on my phone and file transfers stopped working. A better solution I came up with was hosting a SFTP server in a LXC Container using a Ubuntu Server distribution of GNU/Linux and an app for Android I found in the Google Play store called Turbo Client. It supports Public/Private Key Authentication and can be used over a Client-to-Site VPN for even more security if you're away from home. This has allowed me to upload/download as many images as I need to the server then I just access them from my desktop ov
  3. I believe this changes when you set the desktop color theme under personalization. Don't quote me on it though.
  4. I did this once myself (bought things staggered). I don't particularly recommend it. If you run into a hardware issue that you weren't able to troubleshoot until months later because you didn't have the RAM or CPU your options for a replacement/refund just got tougher. I would save up and buy all the parts in one lump sum. This also give you the ability to swap parts in the list if something newer catches your eye. Buying HDD's smaller than 1TB today is kind of...diminishing returns. Given you want to go with Windows I'd opt for 2x2TB drives in a mirrored Storage Pool a
  5. Is this something just for home use? What's your budget? How much storage does he need? If it's a simple Windows based NAS a 4/6 core Xeon, 8-16GB ECC DDR4, and a ASRock Rack or Supermicro motherboard would be solid.
  6. Oh dear god this is a thing? Who in the right mind thinks using such a device is a good idea? Something like this really doesn't need to be an IoT device.
  7. Browser, version and OS: Chrome: v87.0.4280.141 OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS Steps to reproduce/what were you doing before it happened? Add one or multiple code boxes with content to an existing topic Save Now edit the topic (not the code boxes) with addition lines of information Save What happened? Each code box now has as many extra empty lines as were added to the topic (ex. adding two lines of information adds two empty lines to every code box.) these lines stack to outrageous lengths to where you cannot see a single line of code withou
  8. That's probably why (how) it works with a wide range of computers & devices. I can work with this then. I have the Pritunl Client-to-Site tutorial. I'll come up with a way of incorporating this into the guide.
  9. It's a similar situation with VNC Connect. You really shouldn't Port Forward it. Weak security. As far as a VPN goes are the vulnerabilities compensated for with any public VPN service or is specifically a Client-to-Site VPN necessary?
  10. If I'm being honest dual290x probably isn't. Whatever's less expensive in the end is probably the route he'll go.
  11. Only thing you want to keep in mind with dalekphalm's suggestion is it will have you working with exposed contacts at full 115V or 240V AC.
  12. Sitting and thinking about it for a minute the most I can do in that regard is add a disclaimer that I'd recommend a VPN globally regardless of what remote software they go with. Beyond that it's up to the users discretion.
  13. I've never used RDP personally. Does it not have any encryption options? I can't include instructions for a public VPN just so I can add RDP. I do have a tutorial on how you can host your own VPN which would encapsulate all of RDP's traffic but it'd still be a direct client-to-site connection. Not sure if that's worthwhile.
