    We're getting 10 gigabit INTERNET installed at the office! But we need to do some housekeeping first in order to use it, and it turns out we suck at networking...

    Long story short VLAN’s don’t work when they’re plugged into a computer. I have a switch for you! Well I have a switch right here. Oh? That’s the switch I was going to give you. 😂😂😂

    Idiots you should never use compressed are on computer hardware . Always just vacuum it out with a brush attachment

    SETEKH 10 days ago

    My 5c, wherever you use compressor ( or vaccum cleaner ) to clean your server / pc, take those few minutes more to demobilize the fans, just put a paper roll in them or something, it is a very slim chance to break something if you reverse spin them but why take it.

    Used to be over in LSI support - I was part of a team of TWO.... so we got everything from "have you turned it off and back in again", all the way of to manually hacking firmware with UART debuggers to make so called "premium" features to work with other hardware vendors... mostly because at the time, we didnt have a QVL worth a damn.

    XPower A-2, or something similar for blowing out servers, almost as much air pressure, don't have to worry about getting moisture in the tank, and don't have to worry about refilling the tank. Got mine after I saw Jay using his on his channel.

      Then after another few minutes I rofl'd at 7:45 since our pfsense box is an R710 with 48GB RAM. And since I feel not many will understand, it takes very little resources to perform routing at GbE speeds. Like seriously a mid 2000's Pentium with a gig of RAM can easily handle full gigabit ethernet. This is that times 10. Only 10.

    Well since you apparently dont really want them anymore i volunteer to adopt your old 10GB switch and give it a good home. It will be quite comfy with my home which i hardwired in cat6e in prep for eventually finding a switch to adopt and complete my family of interconnected hardware for the home!

    which Supermicro 1U server did you use.. I went to the website... to check it out.. and they offer a bunch of them... as I also wanna use it for Pfsense…. and how well is it working for you guys... I also love all your videos.. Really enjoyed your video on nasty comments.. I seen worse that wasn't posted, for you to read. But I must say I really love the show's keep it up, wish I could afford some of this stuff, or consider giveaways, but all in all.. Love the shows.. Keep it up and forget those haters (:

    Please don't use zip ties for CAT cable. Please use Velcro type cable restraints. I love the cable Combs though. I know my advice may not mean much but I just want to say that I wire schools such as UMass Lowell in the Boston area and MIT in Cambridge Massachusetts. Not saying this to brag. I just love the show and I want to keep your network up and running with minimal crosstalk and shorts. Thank you 😊

    You guys should've done some preventative maintenance like swap out SSD's that are near the EOL or even above it in terms of MTBF ... it'll just be a pain in the you know where having to haul these behemoths out to swap the hard to get SSD's within the frame like in the water cooled video server.

    The comb over. You should have extra bunched up and pull some slack out of the trunk enough to work with the equipment. Good luck. Don't fart in confined spaces with other people working around you, I did that in an electrical room as an electrician and eyes were watering for a week as they entered the electrical pit of doom. OMG im drunk af and I could do a better job rearranging that room.
