    Not my problem. Buy a hangar in Fort Zancudo and enjoy the endless supply of free jets.

  4. HPE Marketing: made-in-USA servers

    origin of parts: china, china, Korea, china, china, china ...

    Spoiler

    Only part made in the USA is toilet paper.

    They didn't even tried to make simple parts in the USA like the injection molded shrouds or sheet metal parts and at this point, it pisses me off if you label/market it so extensively as made in the USA (like "Hewlett Packard Enterprise becomes the only major server manufacturer to ship world’s most secure industry-standard, made-in-USA servers"). Either be fair and pass it off as assembled in the USA or buy parts that still can be made outside of china, not in china.

      Hey HP, is your stuff made in the US?

  5. Holy shit. This is a beautiful card and they are always above average but seeing a 3080 selling for over $2000 is stunning just bad. Wonder if it will get worse within the next weeks.

  9. Currently thinking about redoing the network. Asking what energy efficiency means? 

    1 W = 2.66€ energy per year.

    With a device life span of 5 years every watt less is worth 13.10€ ...

    So might be worth the time to spend some time lowering the power consumption in software.

  10. Normally I don't look at smart data for new drives but I probably should:

    200 GB written, 30 power cycles, 130 power on hours

     

    WTF. Welcome to my blacklist.

  11. Are those 24 pin magnetic usb-c adapter (in reality) thunderbolt 4 compatible and safe?

    If so they might be worth it. Since the Thinkpad offers only 1 typ-c (which is the only charging port ... so more like 0 typ-c 😕) I would need three of them. At this point I could rage about how bad a single typ-c which is used for charging is in a few years from now when typ-c is the normal.

    @Levent At MSRP it is a joke. Add $100 for 50% more GPU. Little hope that AMD jacked up MSRP to get at least closer to what it will retail for.

      This would be a great $399 board. Not almost $500.

    No and it won't change anything so why not just keep it a whistle? Good for you, good for everyone involved.
  16. 4 pin laser diode?

    Multimeter tells 3 diodes in parallel?

    solution:

    image.png.55d3412a97f4d69066c0a019e0b7dc34.png

    Dual wavelength!

    780 nm = CD

    650 nm = DVD

    (405 nm = BD)

    @Schnoz. You mean IIIb is already dangerous? O.o Good think I don't need to (mechanically) interact with it so it can all be in a enclosure. I think this would technically still count as IIIb if there are no interlocks.
  19. Anybody played with self mixing laser?

    Slight issue the cheapest diode I can get within days usable for this is a 405 nm 50 mW 😕 Only benefit of such a strong diode for the first try is that 0.005% return is still 2.5 µW hitting the photodiode. Might dissambel some CD-drives later to check if they have a PD included.

      Just making sure, you have the appropriate laser goggles, right? Don't want you experiencing accidental eye damage.

  23. Look up what technology you have. My guess it is cable (TV) in this case (from a technical stand point) a third party cable router should work. It is still necessary to go through the documents or contact your provider for the authentication/passwords. A practical alternative would be keeping the ISP device and run your own router behind it.
  24. Caching a SSD with optane? Don't. Very little benefit Caching a HDD with optane? Don't. Using a SSD as cache is cheaper and not noticeably worse. TL;DR SSD Caching is probably the better option over Optane due to cost.
