    I didn’t even read your quote on G-Teks post lmao, I just assumed with his dirty mind that’s what he’d be referring to. :awe:

    Why are there so many toilets in the world where the seat doesn’t stay up? It has to be a good 50%! Personally if I was having a toilet installed and the seat wouldn’t stay up I’d tell the plumber to have another go at it or he wouldn’t get paid. It can’t be that fucking hard.

    my 1TB NAS is crashed :rant: it is making a rum noise from the HD platter and flashing red on the bootloader. Thankfully I have backed up the bulk of it on another external HD and tend to put important data like images in more than one place anyway but this means I am going to have to get one of them RAID ones which is gonna be a few hundred quid 😥

    My suggestion would be anything made by QNAP – you get them loaded or unloaded. They stream every protocol under the sun too, which is nice.

    thanks – they look like decent kit. At work we use synology dual RAID NAS but the embedded Linux isn’t that powerful, me and a colleague managed to peg the CPU to 100% just doing some large transfers. That said the Synology is apparently better specified than a QNAP at the lower price range – the £370 + ones might be different but £370 is more than what I want to spend on a unloaded NAS!

    I usually load them with WD drives, never trusted Seagate/Maxor since the early 2000s when a entire container of drives got dropped off the hook at Port Klang(!) in Malaysia, and everyone kept schtum about it until by 2005/6 there were loads of failures worldwide..

    On a similar note, what is a good SSD? I’ve currently got a small OCS one in my desktop as they were cheap and it works OK but OCS have gone bust, and I try to have at least one SSD one for audio and video production work.

    TBH I don’t know much about consumer SSDs as I’ve never yet bought one. I guess it’s a case of SLC vs MLC, the number of IOPS you want and the max real-world throughput (synchronous and random read/writes). One thing I do know is TRIM support is essential on whatever OS you use it with.

    If its extreme performance you’re after than a PCI-e card rather than a drive is what you want (a drive being something using SATA). One of the reasons I got a macbook was it’s thunderbolt port which is actually a PCI-e bus allowing you to literally use PCI-e cards (via an external bay thing) via that port on a laptop (2x10gbps) – nice idea from Intel that one. Who’d have thought you could plug full size PCI cards into a laptop 😉 Unlike USB, Thunderbolt – because it’s on the PCI bus – has direct access to memory, which could be easily exploited. Slightly OT there me thinks 🙂

    Well, unless you fly Jet Blue (Damn I love that airline. Everybody flys first class!), all you get is salted peanuts, a sandwitch, and a soda. Now, I’m going to tell you about a crime against humanity. Excluding Jet Blue, none of the airlines serve root beer on their flights. That is a SIN! Repent now, serve root beer! Yay, Root Beer! :wave::wave:

    Went to the gym today but got there and didn’t have my trainers with me for some unknown reason so I had to come all the way back for them. Sigh.
