  1. Awesome! That defiantly puts my mind at ease! Looks like I can reconsider the need for the SSD, and just buy some low capacity USBs. Save the SATA ports, and not kill the flash chips . As a side-note; if I do end up going down FreeNAS/TrueNAS Core solution with USB sticks, I would need to consider making adjustments to the System Dataset, as reported in TrueNAS's forum thread. Not exactly sure on what a "special device" is for ZFS, and should follow-up on this.
  2. I am intially looking at the Crucial BX500 240GB 3D NAND SATA 2.5" SSD, size is overkill for either boot or OS drive. Reading some articles, maybe USB would be better for lower sizes, and I could pick up a couple USB header adapters, keep them tucked away. True, I was just initially unsure about the Read/Write cycles of a OS drive under FreeNAS or UnRAID, whether the IO index load of managing the ZFS pool was written to this drive. Seems from the messages thus fair, that may not be as extreme as thought. I probs would expect some from of data/pool management stored s
  3. I am making plans to build put together a NAS vault desktop, using some older spare hardware lying around. I picked up a system without any storage, so I would need to fill this up. The board is in older Intel Z87, rocking a 4th Gen i5 CPU, a little overkill, but should be OK to start with. I plan to fill the machine up with large capacity HDD platter disks, aiming for 4-8TB for each drive, as I don't want to break the bank each time I purchase a small set. Knowing that it's best practice to keep your OS and Data separate, I would need a boot/OS drive. A low capacity SSD, aiming
  4. There is also the argument to be had about media companies use for Facebook for news. Many (if not all) take content from it and push it onto the larger audience. It's a publicly accessible communication platform. It has been used to gauge the public's response to whatever is the issue of the day, or hype up stories for content filling, or public shaming, sometimes without consent to the author. Being someone who closed his profile some years ago, I questioned the heavy dependence on the Facebook platform as a Central point for any/all communication. Remember there are countri

  6. Summary After threats of Google seeking to prevent search operations in Australia, and largely backing down after signing agreements with Australian Media Business, Facebook has decided to suspend the posting and sharing of News Articles and Information from the Pages of Australian Media and other sources. ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), Nine and Fairfax, News Corp and others have had their posts removed from the platform. Other pages such as Australian Bureau of Meteorology (weather provider), Comedy News shows and satirical news pages have also been affected. Questions
  7. Hi all, I am hitting a bit of a road bump with my plans in setting up a PC Gaming console. Thankfully all the hardware has been configured and built. Took 6 months (not including the last 3 in storage), and everything works fine. I have intended on this machine to be a PC Console/LAN Party box. I primarily will be playing games with Xbox controllers (as that is all I have), and a keyboard/mouse when on the road to LAN meetups. My only problem is picking the right OS. I was to stay clear of Windows (as my main rig already has it), and I will be using Steam as the primary plat
  8. I kinda feel bad for myself lunging at @LinusTech now. It was too unsportsmanlike of myself, but Linus is a good sport. Damn you were good! Thanks for recording the interaction @Dawson Wehage
  9. Hopping not to derail peoples intentions to plan meetups, or to add complications to communication channels. But I've opened up a Discord channel for this. Mostly targeting those staying at Samesun, but willing to expand if needed. https://discord.gg/eE2bTYr
  10. Cheers... I hate to be that guy, but I recently closed my Facebook profile. For the time being, I'll see if I can find another way to initiate the communication.
  11. Came here to say that I might fit the criteria. Just landed into Vancouver from Melbourne, Australia with Jet lag to boot! Also staying at the Samesun hostel in downtown. This trip doubles as my holiday too.....
