Re: What did you do this week?

I'm trying to re-learn C# and start learning Xamarin. Goal is a weight lifting app. I've used a some but none of them are as flexible as I like (Strong, Personal Training Coach). Don't know how far I'll get. May be one of those projects that gets started and quickly falls off. Hoping my boss approve...

Re: Project: Network Rebuild

Part 3 - Wiring and Initial Setup So me and a friend I met back in Junior College and now work with at the Bank wired in the Ubiquiti UniFi NanoHD APs. That was on Saturday. I crawled around in the attic. My knees and abs still hurt. Since the roof is low pitched I had to basically lay across 4 bea...

Re: Project: Network Rebuild

Huzzah Phase 2 is finally really complete! The last thing I had to do was clean up the burrs left by my drilling. I realize I should have drilled into boards instead of using two two by fours and using them as makeshift sawhorses. Well lesson learned. I used a 1/2" chamfer bit to try and counte...

Re: Project: Network Rebuild

I have fixed my temperature problem. Cant believe I didn't think of it. Drilled a bunch of holes above the CPU cooler and taped off the back above the IO shield, holes around the NIC card and front port where the extra HDD bay in an attempt to get slight negative pressure so most air comes through a...

Re: Project: Network Rebuild

I have come full circle and I am still pissed off. I ended up doing what I should have done in the first place and just replaced the CPU fan. I got a Silverstone NT07-115X. This one works, but I've run into another problem. i'm not sure if it's a bad combination of CPU and Case (likely), but when th...

Re: Project: Network Rebuild

I have run into yet another problem. I didn't do due diligence with regard to CPU cooler. The Thermaltake Engine 17 is rated for a 35W TDP CPU ](*,) . My CPU in the build (Xeon E3-1260L) is a 45W CPU. It could keep it about 70C but the TCASE for the E3-1260L is 58.6°C. So, after doing a little more ...

Re: Project: Network Rebuild

Good news and bad news. Good news: The old CPU fan was the problem and replaced with the new expensive Thermaltake spinning heatsink. The Bracket for the Intel card fits perfectly. Bad News: Spot the problem. http://imagehost.suck-o.com/images/2019/09/21/201909201853221.th.jpg I should have bought a...

Re: Project: Network Rebuild

A couple setbacks and a minor deal: CPU Fan died. Spun a couple times and quit. Played around with BIOS settings but it never spun again. So I ended up buying this monstrosity . Arrives Thursday. 4 Port NIC doesn't fit even if I take the bracket off. If I could slightly move it to the right it would...

Project: Network Rebuild

Part 1 - Site Survey So it has been a while since I have done any sort of networking upgrades. Last upgrade I had upgraded from a Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH to an ASUS RT-AC66U. I had flashed RMerlin firmware and it had been a pretty reliable piece of hardware. Recently (in the last year or so) I've got...

Re: Linux kernel institutes Code of Conduct - dark days ahead

I don't entertain the delusions of the mentally ill. Or will only in the most backhanded way. I identify as a billionaire yet it doesn't make it so. If you actually read Ted Ts'o you will realize that he is not a rape apologist. Ts'o questions the 1 in 4 rape statistic. GeekFeminism wiki is not at a...

Well of course "she" is butthurt. She's an ideologue. Anyway I didn't even have to wait a week for them to start targeting kernel developers. https://twitter.com/_sagesharp_/status/1042769399596437504 Anyway this isn't the first time an alleged attempt has been made. According to Eric S Ra...
