Re: best anime movies ever - absolutely must haves

One that is somewhat computer related and fairly interesting is Denno Coil. It deals with altered reality and virtual reality.

Re: NEC PCFX

I have a PC-FX. Honestly I never hooked it up or turned it on when I received it. I'll have to give it a go sometime.

Re: uptime contest !

If you factor in the inherent unreliability of the old linksys 54G units it's quite amazing that mine has such a high uptime. It is hooked up to a UPS though. Our power here is pretty reliable most of the time (lol). It's also used solely for wifi, my router is an embedded atom box which would have ...

Re: C8000 HDD installation

I never took mine out of the caddies I don't think or installed any in them but they look like the dell ones where you just bend them open enough to have the metal pieces go into the screw holes.

Re: Firewall

Never used one of the old netscreen lines but the SSG20 is a pretty nice device though 10/100 is limiting these days for a home connection.

That's a nice looking box, PS/2s were always kind of weird imo...I've got a 386 56 which is pretty slow haha.

Re: Firewall

If you want to retain any semblance of sanity I implore you to avoid the airport line at all costs. Every time you make a change it has to reboot and you have to install the airport utility if you want to do anything with it. Terrible.

Re: Clear shot, proto, SGI O2

Clear plastics are typically much more brittle than their solid colour counterparts.

Re: Email service recommendations

I read mentions of OSX Server for mail. I had to "manage" it a bit for a company client a while ago and IMO it is easier to install, configure and manage yourself than use their multiple different GUIs all of which have layouts which make no sense and aggravate the hell out of you lol.

Re: Learning Various Flavors of Unix

It'll probably be hard to get into a straight-up unix specific position considering the shrinking market and large number of very experienced admins already out there. However, the cloud market is still growing and uses linux so that would be worth jumping into. having an RHEL cert will not hurt you...

Re: Let's talk about why IBM sucks.

KVM is pretty good speed-wise. I haven't compared it to other commercial solutions but for my personal use it was like running on the hardware itself. My disk system was the biggest slowdown.

Re: Email service recommendations

As long as you have a backup server having your local server go down isn't such a big problem. I have DtDNS service but Cox is pretty consistent with their IPs in my location and it only changes when you change modem. I run a Zimbra server and it's pretty simple and the spam filtering is decent enou...
