    I tried to see if I could find out a little more info about Ikon because I too was curious. Not much to find but I am pretty confident that he was from Ontario, Canada. He was definitely one of the nicest people to post in these forums. Never one to stir up trouble and always ready to help others.

    Yeah, I can show different ads to different groups of users. Typically I have not been showing them to any logged in user. I would like to continue that if possible. I have a mobile strategy but I have a few steps to go before implementing it. domain name, https, etc.

    I have 7 monitors and only 2 cards. 4 on one and 3 on the other. I have tried them with and without SLI but could never tell the difference. I am not a gamer unless you count Flight Simulator a game (I don't). One card should be plenty for 2 monitors if not gaming. Any Gamer will tell you that 1 RX 480 is way better than 2 RX 460 because of the limitation of the 2 GB memory in the 460 (Crossfire would help this problem). Also any gamer would tell you to pay extra for the 8GB version especially if running 2 monitors. Vega is supposed to be here next month and one would think that the RX 480 8GB would then be priced under $200.

    Here is a better list of LSI cards including OEM: https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/lsi-raid-controller-and-hba-complete-listing-plus-oem-models.599/

    Counterfeit cards is a growing issue. I usually find cards by just searching on LSI 8i. This seller has 9210-8i for $40, looks like they ship to UK: http://www.ebay.com/itm/LSI-SAS-9210-8i-8-port-6Gb-s-PCIe-HBA-RAID-SATA-Controller-card-No-Brackets-/252842986107?hash=item3ade9dca7b:g:xj0AAOSwB09YJLX4 Here is a older compare on LSI cards. Always check the specs to see which chip the card uses, newer=faster and cooler, and verify that it can be flashed to IT mode to run as a HBA. https://www.servethehome.com/current-lsi-hba-controller-features-compared/

    The problem with the M1015's is that they've become so popular, that they're no longer ~$50. They're closer to full price now ($100-150) Find a LSI 9211, or 9207 card, and grab that. Such as eBay Link (9207-8i, shipper in California). Also, this way, there is no messing with flashing firmware.

    AFAIK there is no way to do it within a browser, as due to the way it works the browser is not necessarily aware of both NIC's as it operates at a higher OSI/TCPIP layer. For example, the browser does not care how the bits are transmitted; it does not need to know how they are, only that they are, in the case of making a connection to a website, the browser just issues a connect request to the TCP/IP stack. This TCP/IP stack is managed by your operating system, which then determines which gateway to use, and issues instructions to the correct NIC. The question ultimately boils down in your scenario to having multiple gateways; this is what you need to be able to select on the fly, and due to the application not knowing about multiple gateways, as above there is no way I can tell you of making it work. Technically it could be done by using a router and routing tables to tell it which sites go to which connection, but this is overkill and a bitch to maintain.

    What OS are you running on your desktop? Many years ago at work the engineers on my team had desktops with two Ethernet ports, one was the companies network, the other was our lab network. In Windows 7 we had them setup two profiles/logins, one to access the company network and one for lab access. This kept the two networks separate and worked fine, but of course it did require logoff and logon. Depending on the OS on your desktop, potentially you could run a VM to access the VPN router separately from your other environment.

    I am enabling a new skin for logged in members. Go to the bottom of the page and find the word "Theme." Drop it down and choose RESET. It's a blinding white theme and there are still a few issues with it. I'm working through them and working to get you a "Dark" theme as well. You can give me feedback in this post. Realize that these things are hard coded for the most part. I can make some changes but a lot of the work takes mucking around with code. After a few hours of messing with code I get testy!

    I recently bumped into one HP Engineer who told me that new MicroServer is coming. He said that there will be no Gen9 (as we all know by now) but that MicroServer Gen10 is in the works. Box should visually be similar, except that it will be all in black instead of black and silver. Insides will be completely different. He didn't want to go into specifics or the timeline, but he was saying that if i need one now, I should get Gen8 as the price is great. Therefore I can conclude that it won't be released in near short term. It's not much of an info, but it's something. I thought you guys might wanna know Cheers!

    It's something exposed by the BIOS MOD but it doesn't work (necessary HW/chips were not mounted on MB). You'll need to add a card for USB 3.0. Best Regards,

    Ive been using xpenology for a year and I can say it works great, tried iscsi and regular shares. My only complaint is that as this is a hacked opensource loader you get close to no support and new versions take a long time to be considered "stable". With this said what I hate about syno is their pricing structure, you pay around 1k for a mere atom processor or i3 or low xeon. as a home lab I am running rockstor, which is a centos based distribution with btrfs on top, so far for testing on "stable" raid levels 10 and 1 it runs like a champ. If I had to choose I would go for synology because of the ease of use but rockstor for the flexibility (centos) My 2 cents

    I have a dark theme that I'm going to look at. Looks like I would use it 24/7 and end users could change it at will.

    For general-purpose computing 1 card will suffice: say a RX460 or a GTX 1050. Relatively new cards have both a DVI and a DisplayPort connector thus accommodating 2 displays. Depending on your monitors, only 1 DisplayPort may be necessary, since DisplayPort supports daisy-chaining. of devices. Entry level cards have benefits: - power supplied by PCI, so no additional power connectors - much lower power consumption - quiet! I have a very old DELL 3007 at 2560x1600 ... and not felt the need to add a 2nd ... indeed find myself shrinking some work to the centre of the screen. If anything I have wished for more vertical pixels so I would probably go for 32", 4K with accurate colour, say http://euro.dell.com/uk/en/corp/Peripherals/dell-up3216q-monitor/pd.aspx?refid=dell-up3216q-monitor&s=corp

    IP only works with OS that HP supports on the server. Windows 10 is not a supported OS on the MS Gen8. The route you took is the best way to install Windoes 10 on the MS Gen8. Sent from my LG-H910 using Tapatalk

    Have edited my sig by deleting all hard returns and replacing with soft ones (shift + enter). This has reduced it by 5 lines. Thanks Chris. One small point: The word "Location" and the actual location run into each other. Dave needs to add 1 space or a colon after "Location".

    It looks like signatures are spread out (like there are extra line returns now). It will help if everyone reviews their signatures and condenses them down. Otherwise there is a lot of extra scrolling to get thru posts.

    Signatures and Gravatar back on. Sigs restored although they now look funny to me since there is a function bar between them and the actual post. I'll look into that.

    SDM R4 and R3.5 notes: Here is a 40mm x 15mm (15mm is the max) fan in the P222 position: Here is a 40mm x 15mm fan in the LSI/M1015 position: I am shipping the SDM R4 with self tapping fan screws, two different sizes as 40mm fan mounting hole vary in size. I was concerned about the heads of the fan screws sticking up too far and touching the back of your drive circuit board, so I am including nylon spacers to add 1mm of clearance: Like the SDM R3, the SDM R4 and R3.5 are designed to be installed under the small power supply tab. I made them smaller than the R3 so they should fit better:

    Hi there! I gotta say, I've always been skeptical of 3rd parties hosting my data "for free" because lets face it, when something is truly "free" you're the "product." However, I've found that apps like Seafile and ownCloud just don't have enough functionality. I wanted to make an application that has all of the same functionality of Google, OneDrive, or Dropbox that fits entirely on my home-server. That's why I've been working on a private open-source solution to a very public and closed-source problem. With HRCloud2, a user can completely control their data from a safe and reliable place that they can trust. For ultimate performance just point your Cloud Directory at a RAID array or network storage device. It's flexible, lightweight, fast, and written in plain-ol' PHP and Javascript (with a little Ajax and JQuery sprinkled in). No frameworks, nothing special to learn. There's even an API, so you can make your own GUI's, browser plugins, desktop apps, mobile apps, ect. I can't lie, though,,, HRCloud2 is a work-in-process and although it's safe and fit for use, some of it's development features may be buggy or cumbersome at times. At the time of this writing I'm working on implementing an App Launcher, Soon anyone will be able to do Google-things in true privacy, from anywhere. Being written mostly in Jscript and PHP, HRCloud2 Apps would be extremely simple to write and a great way to get into coding. Support the little guy and try this app. If you're dissapointed open an issue on Github and I'll try to make it better! Thanks for the clicks! https://github.com/zelon88/HRCloud2
