    My office neighbor across the street came over and asked if I had a minute.
    I went over to his office and he had a Verizon tech waiting there.
    He asks the tech to repeat what he just told him.
     
    Verizon Tech: I was just telling him he needs to get 5 static IPs because his connection is dropping because he only has 1 IP address and it's overloaded.
    Me (with a super serious face): Oh ok, is it because he needs to split his TCP and UDP packets up so they're not all trying to come down the same pipe? [intentional nonsene]
    Verizon Tech: YES EXACTLY!
    Me: Can you please get your supervisor on the phone. 😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐

    BWAHAHAHAHA.... funny story.
     
    There was once a time I was mildly frustrated with Etude.
    It has a B450-I and for the life of me I could not get all the RGB LEDs to shut off.
    I re-flashed the BIOS thinking it was just screwy out of the box.
    That did nothing and it had a side door that was barely see-through, so I didn't waste much effort.
     
     
    Fast forward to today. I sold my Asus Zenbook to @The Blackhat and also an Inland Premium 1TB NVMe SSD.
    Hat DMs me and is like WHY DOES THIS SSD HAVE LEDS?!
    I'm like oh wow that weird. We checked the Micro Center page for it and 0 mention of the LEDs.
    They also don't have any way to control them. I laugh it off as strange since (as Hat points out) this something to market to the rainbow puke fetishists..
     
    I get sleep and start to doze off.
    My brain jolts awake.
     

     
    THAT'S.

    THAT.

    @Damascus I bought a Delta DPS-650AB 1U power supply:
     

     
    I have three plans for this unit:
     
    1. Measure the edge card connectors for the adapter I am designing (The connectors on this unit have the same pinout as the supermicro one)
     
    2. Hack the internal fan and figure out how to slow it down, and replace it with a quieter fan
     
    3. Take the power supply when i'm done, and convert it into a tiny 650w power supply for the RC hobby community. As far as I can tell, nobody has converted these power supplies for RC use in large quantities yet.
     
    You COULD actually fit this power supply inside if a standard S4F. You would just have to use a very short length GPU to get it to fit.

    One of my friends recently bought out a machining shop and one of his machines went down. He brought the PC controlling it over to me to look at. It was some terrifyingly slow Athlon II Neo. We looked through the old paperwork and the old owner paid $30K for the PC. Thirty thousand dollars. I ended up getting it to boot in a NUC I had lying around and got him back up and running, but for the hell of it we called up the company who implemented the system to get a cost on replacing it. They wanted another $30k, this time for an.... Intel NUC lol. I asked how they could possibly justify it and they pulled out the classic RED excuse of "custom firmware" optimized specially for their machines lol.
