    Scaleway Cloud Launches x86-64 C2 Servers: Dedicated Avoton C2550 and C2750

    Ah, I just assumed they were running with the 'dedicated core' thing. Also it's not local storage, it's the network drive. LSSD is confusing as it can be interpreted as 'local' - but it's their network storage, the local disks are "Direct SSD". Perhaps they have a bunch of the C2750's racked...

    Scaleway Cloud Launches x86-64 C2 Servers: Dedicated Avoton C2550 and C2750

    I have invites if you want one, just PM me your email. Just played with the VPS and just spun up the C2L server to play with it. It's an Atom C2750, so not much surprise there speed-wise. I think the VPS is the best deal, it's 2x dedicated C2750 cores + 50GB SSD + 200Mbps unmetered (on...

    Low powered desktop computer spec recommendations?

    Check out the Intel NUC lineup if you're fine with external storage (USB 3.0). They use the dual core laptop variants of the i3/5/7 - and the older ones also have some celeron models. Super low power, take either an m.2 ssd or 2.5" drive (new versions) and DDR3/4 SO-DIMM.

    Facts I've Learned About Trying to Quit Smoking

    I 'quit' just about 2 years ago (coming up in a month). I put quit in quotes because I went the e-cigarette route, so really just traded one habit for another. Although I do feel a lot better with the vaping than smoking cigarettes, breathing/sense of smell & taste are better and I don't slip...

    Dacentec - Unreliable Network Ran by Amateurs - Recommendations

    Layer 7 against our billing panel, mix of open proxies and a couple OVH IPs. Atlanta had a decent sized UDP flood, but that was squashed before any customers were impacted (1:1 internal switching, so a lot less customers being impacted by person getting nuked). Not even 2 weeks into the job...

    Laptop with Long Battery Life

    I'm not sure on the best Chromebooks of the latest batch, but I have an Haswell Celeron Acer C720 that lasts 9-10 hours. You might be able to find a used one for cheap of that model, or likely there are better models out now. Just avoid any of the Atom/ARM crap, stick to haswell celeron/i3 and...

    The good shooting spots are snowed in or closed.. and I've got 2 boxes of 3" Federal slugs and a busted old Supermicro 1U box that's begging to be filled with lead. :(

    It's last on my list due to Canadian gun laws. I need to join a gun club with a partner range, then buy the gun and wait a week or two for registration & a temporary authorization to transport (ATT) a restricted firearm from the store to my house, then I need to submit a request for a long term...

    Yeah. I'm passing on the SKS for now, way more expensive to shoot. Can't beat $25-35 (CAD) for a brick of 350-500 rounds. Plenty of fun for pennies. Also good for when I bring ladies shooting, although I like to tenderize their shoulders a bit first with a couple 3" slugs. SKS is...

    Alright, it was meant to be. Walked into the gun store and they had a used 10/22 that just came in, had only been on the rack for a couple hours. In awesome shape and super clean, came with 2 x 25 round mags and a loader, plus a laser on the front - for the same price as a new one without any...

    Incero Optimizes Routes and Gets Chatty About it on Twitter

    I wish more hosts were like Incero. My first and best colo experience so far, just about to pass a year with them. The heavy amount of GOOD automation is refreshing, I haven't had to issue a service-related ticket once - the panel/customer portal is awesome, has every big feature you'd ever...

    18 or 18.5" I think, but there's some other rule regarding total length.. so some rifles have like 16" barrels but bigger receivers/stocks so they're still cool as non-restricted. I picked it for the flexibility since it came with both a 18.5" & 28" barrel, choke set, pistol grip, etc and only...
