    JSE Coin

    App still seems to be hit and miss, left it trying to connect for a good few hours the other day and it just wouldn't, went back to it a few days later and it was connected and mining again. What are peoples plans with JSE, are you going to dump it as soon as it goes to market or do you think it might actually go somewhere.. I've got no issues with using my browser to sit there mining while I'm on a website rather than having ads thrown in my face and the website hosts gaining money from the mining rather than having to sell out to advertising and diluting the content with popups, links to external sites that could then contain security issues, would make browsing as a whole a much nicer experience, image those websites not having to have a "next page" so they can have more adverts per article but could literally just be long webpages with everything you want on a single page, makes browsing easier as well as keeps you on a single page and they can grab some CPU cycles to mine with... @Dave, you host and get a lot more traffic than I do on either of my websites, from a host POV, would you rather mine on visitors machines and have no adverts, which has a knock on security effect, or have ads and click-throughs, or possibly 2 versions of the website, one with ads, and one with mining running?

    Keeping Server Folder and NAS in sync

    Great information everyone, thanks for sharing. Based on your experiences, I've just set up Allway Sync and it seems to be doing the job nicely. Easy to understand interface, just took a few minutes to set up the sync jobs I've been irregularly doing manually for too long. Cheers, Phil.

    I know Malwarebytes for Business supports Server 2016, I am not sure if their personal version does or not: https://www.malwarebytes.com/business/endpointsecurity/ https://www.malwarebytes.com/pricing/?rec=premium but it wont be of much help now that he is infected.

    Finally replacing my WHS

    Sorry, @JasonI missed your post earlier, only saw it due to the quote on page 2. However, I would say that whilst the NAS is technically capable of running Plex I have issues with transcoding for iPads and Apple TV's (due to them not supporting MKV) and when I put in the new server that should alleviate it but that is still a while off. if you do not need to do transcoding I would say go with it, else I am finding my RS2416+ to not have the required power especially with 4K

    LSI 9211+WD Red = slow speed?

    Hi, Do you checked the disks on another operating system / file system? Read it P.S. I remember I had random (not stable) slowdowns speed HDD on LSI 9217-8i (IT), then I installed an additional active FAN on the cheap and the problem was gone. I'm not sure that this is your case.

    LSI 9211+WD Red = slow speed?

    Was the test run from a computer connected to the FreeNAS server or by using Rsync or cp on the FreeNAS server?

    In my area, we have just gotten three new over the air tv stations, so we have all the major networks now I've gotten a channel master stream + android tv box and very pleased with it. Full android tv plus a dual tuner for using Google's live channel app for the tuning and dvr functions. There is no ongoing charge for the channel guide. The only downside is that Netflix is not yet available, but I have my roku box for that. With Netflix,Amazon prime and an ota dvr We have all the tv we could watch and only pay for netflix
  17. Hi there! Sounds like you are treading the same path as I did! I used to run WHS2011 on a HP Microserver N36L with 4 drives and 8GB RAM. It ran well enough as my file server, computer backup and DHCP/DNS server, but I fancied delving into virtualisation. I bought a Lenovo TS140 with Xeon processor and 32GB RAM. I installed ESXi onto a USB drive and did a P2V migration of WHS2011 from the N36L onto the new server. This enabled me to keep the home network up and running with minimal downtime. I’ve since added an SSD Drive and now have several WinOS and Linux systems running from this with data residing on spinning drives. The TS140 unfortunately doesn’t support IMPI so I can’t get any monitoring through ESXi, however I’ve not had any issues with this approach over the last 2 years with the system running 24/7. I’m not running any type of hard drive mirroring, each spinning drive has 1 or more datastores on it and I attach these to the various OS’s I’m running and do file duplication through them onto the different physical drives. I’ve subsequently installed ESXi onto the N36L and have a Windows OS running which I do periodic backups back from the TS140 VM’s. My primary backup from the TS140 for my photos / videos is to Amazon Glacier, the local drive backup with the TS140 and also to the N36L provide sufficient resilience to negate the need for a RAID mirror in my view.

  20. Hello everyone, I currently have an older HP Microserver running WHS 2011 and it's slowly getting on my last nerves. I would like to do away with Windows Server altogether, but unfortunately my cloud backup solution doesn't have a client that runs on Linux, so I can't ditch Microsoft. Now, to my questions: I want to build it based on ESXi and have ESXi and all the guest OSes installed on an SSD. Is there anything I need to be concerned with here? TRIM support maybe? As for the data: I would put VM Disks on mechanical hard drives. Is there any way to pool physical drives together in one data store in ESXi? Do I need to go with RAID? If I'm not mistaken, however, in RAID you can't use disks of different types, unless there have been some new developments that I'm not aware of. I've been looking at the HP Microserver Gen10, so that's the kind of hardware I'd be using. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Fire TV Cube - $119 https://amzn.to/2MdyRul Fire TV - $69.99 https://amzn.to/2vK5Xrz Roku - $69.28 https://amzn.to/2P5TQwZ This is the cheaper Roku box. There are a couple more that have more features, HDR, etc. I'm not comfortable with "streaming sticks." I would rather have the box/puck.

    RESET 48 - Cord Cutting

    I've been a cord-cutter for a LONG time. I cut the cord in 2010 when I realized that 90% of what my wife watched (and therefore me) was available over-the-air. Paying that much for cable for what was available over the air was insane to me. Even with keeping them for internet, it was $100/mo savings. Windows Media Center running on a small PC in the living room with a remote control is what passed the wife-acceptance factor after some time. She was resistance but understood the financial savings. Went through different tuner options over the years and currently have both old and new Silicon Dust models in use. I still think that WMC is the best solution out there for the cable box replacement. Unfortunately, due to it being pulled for anything after Win 7 and no support means it's on borrowed time. Currently, running a Plex server for the backend. Plexpass lifetime member here (bought it WAY back when when it was like $40). Roku boxes are the front-ends on every TV in the house but not really the best for live TV. Functional but barely. That needs to get sorted soon or the WAF is going to end. Movies are ripped and both movies and TV shows are stored on a QNAP NAS. I still think the Roku is the best set-top box out there. For Amazon and Netflix, it works great and the interface is pretty nice. Plex needs work. Have a Logitech Harmony Hub with the nice little remote that does 99.9% of what we need so never need to touch the phone part of it. Keep fighting the fight!!!

    Gen8 - memory upgrade not going good

    A certain piece of ram is not made for one single machine, it's just branding so people that want ram for their apple machine finds it (faster). From the specs I don't see any reason why it should not work.

    Why it think that RAM for Apple PC will be compatible with HP Microserver also?

    Gen8 - memory upgrade not going good

    I should have included that, yes. Here is the link to the product: https://www.amazon.com/OWC-16-0GB-PC10600-1333MHz-SDRAM/dp/B01K22UHSK And the Apple computers need "PC3-10600E, 1333 MHz, ECC, DDR3 SDRAM UDIMM"

    Well the DirecTV Now part of my "solution" was to get the channels she watches the most (MSNBC, HGTV, TLC) but the kicker was TLC which doesn't seem to be carried by ANY of the streaming companies EXCEPT DirecTV Now. I was initially leaning Sling, but the lack of TLC made me shy away. I still think DirecTV Now is probably the way to go, but with some other controller. I may give Roku a shot, but am also considering Amazon FIre TV. Anyone else have opinions on these? If I can figure out the right controller I can give my 21yo DirecTV subscription the boot, which is my ultimate goal.

    Good topic. We still have little ones in the house who primarily watch cartoons, Netflix and movies served from Plex Media Server. Use whole house TiVo setup over Ethernet (cablecard main DTB). Is better than anything our cable company provides. Needless to say, we’ve not really cut the cord. If it weren’t for the kiddos, don’t know that we’d even subscribe to cable TV at all, but rely almost exclusively on streaming. Even still, while not perfect by any means, TiVo seems to offer the best, most intuitive whole home experience. It’s $14.99/mo for main TiVo, the media extenders have no monthly fee and CableCARD rental is $1.99/mo for that single box...plus your cable service package of course.
