So, I traded some equipment and cash with a buddy of mine for this 10 year old 2950 server and a large Dell 21" monitor about a year ago. I had planned on using it as a test bench to learn how to work with Windows server and ESXi but I never got around to it.
Now, I moved into a new place with my fiance and we don't really have the room for the server (I'm keeping the monitor for my desktop). We are also nervous about the electric bill with those dual 750W PSUs.
What should I do with it? It came with a couple licenses and installer discs for I think Win Server 2003 and 2008 R2. It has 5x 300GB 10k RPM SAS drives and I upgraded the memory to 128GB of ECC DDR2.
is it worth selling? Would I get anything for it? It's pretty old, I think from 2008.
Man, it's scary how fast such hardware goes from tens of thousands to a few bucks.
My local sales site is full of old server hardware, Poweredge like that go for 30 bucks with racks for slightly more. If you bother, you can even pick up one for free from behind places they where used.
Virtualise it, then do whatever you want - replace onedrive/dropbox with it, make a mail server, etc. 2nd PSU is for redundancy, it won't take 1500W. Also, wattage depends from the load you give.
HOW THE FUCK DID MY MINECRAFT SUBSCRIPTION EXPIRE WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO NOW REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Taking a trip to San Francisco, what are some cool tech-related things I should do/see while there /g/?
this, it's not in San Francisco though. There's a fucking cool arcade on the pier with old arcade games and automata.
the exploratorium is cool too. I mean it's mostly for kids, but if anyone asks, just say you're a teacher or something about education.
also, if you wait long enough on the Golden Gate Bridge, you'll eventually see someone commit suicide.

I have 1gbps internet and these piece of shit "commercial grade" routers can't even sustain full gigabit speeds. Has anyone here fallen for the Ubiquiti meme ?
my piece of shit ISP supplied NetComm does faster speeds than this. Tried both the USG and Edgerouter X.
Did you enable hardware NAT?
I too have 1gbps internet, and all the ubiquiti products are fine at these speeds assuming you've configured them correctly.
i was wondering with all the recent google shenanigans what browser you guys suggest i switch to. i honestly have no idea whats out there besides IE, firefox, and safari so its uncharted territory for me
Don't listen to the crazies here. Chrome is just fine. Literally nothing wrong with it.
Don't let the paid anti-Google shills tell you otherwise.
Most people switch browsers based off a social preference of moral highgrounding and convincing themselves they are socially aware.
In reality it doesn't make a difference and in terms of speed you're probably better off just using the current chrome or firefox distribution.
well i have been wanting to switch from chrome for a while and i figured this was the perfect excuse
main reason i wanted to ask was to see if guys here knew of a better/faster/more reliable browser than firefox
I won a tablet with Windows 10 on it in a competition.
My god, it's so awful. You can't do anything without signing in to some account or another and it asks for payment for even the most basic stuff. Every time it starts up it goes back into "tablet mode" even though I keep setting it to desktop mode. There's no pen and using fingers for everything is so imprecise. It only has one tiny USB port so I can't connect a mouse and a keyboard at the same time.
Am I a luddite or do Windows 10 tablets suck ass?

About 20" square inches in size and about 67 lbs heavy, any of you got any experience that could help me out?
I got offered one that still has nice colors for about 7 dollars, the guy really wants to get rid of the fat boy. I want one because I study electrical engineering and am a fan of the tech.
Pick it up

Hahaha /g/ BTFO
They were mostly women back in the day, because being a programmer was literally nothing but translating a scientist's words to machine code. Literally a translator and nothing to do with logic / maths. Patriarchy btfo amirite
Fuck off, Ada is a bro. Feminists using her as a symbol to push politics in a purely technical field is a goddamn tragedy.
