Bought myself a new NAS box now.
a Synology DS112j and put in a 300GB 10k disk I had laying around.
using it now as an iSCSI target for my ESX server and for some small storage.
works good for handling downloads and video content too. the mediaserver on it is quite nice.


Server working 100%

Filed under: crazy projects,IT stuff — Zinit @ 15:16

Everything is working fine with the server now.
Was able to track down a 2nd hand DRAC5 card for free.
got a bit of a project to get my hands on a descent storage box that can use iscsi, however, that’s expencive..
so far the best choice is a synology nas. cheapest descent one I found was about €120. (+ disk).
I have some 300GB disks, so that would work as a short term solution while I save up money for some more juicy disks.
The good things with those is the scalability since you can plug in external e-sata disks or drive bays.. and the fact that they support iSCSI.
The iomega box I have now doesnt support iscsi or nfs. (and esx doesnt support samba… hyper-V does. so might stick hyper-V 2k12 in on the server at a later stage when the VCP exam is in box.)

nice setup. something to concider for my raspberry pi. I would use something to power it from ethernet though.. less cables and less fire hazard

It’s weird how much people in general accepts from gouvernment before they start asking questions..
Recently the US gouvernment wanted to post a law giving authorities the right ro spy on the general population’s online activity ( read emails, spy on facebook chat, sms, deceypt your comminication with others).
This would be any time they want, no need for court orderd or warrents.
If thats not invasion of privacy i don’t know what is…


hilariously expencive blooper

Filed under: IT stuff — Zinit @ 11:00

was reading through some blogs here and found the most expencive blooper imagineable.
wonder who that was.
strange that someone would even make an offer to a company that makes web browsers when the admin software does not work in that browser.
needless to say. that contractor was dropped from the contest.
