Yeah, I dont think the speed difference will matter much to me since I’m only running gigabit but the idea of having to expand the pool 4 drives at a time is something my wallet doesnt like.
Will you install FreeNAS to usb stick and use it as system drive?
I’m bad at this
Thats the plan.
The best name
After that @AnotherDev scoundrel started his thread I couldnt just stand by and let his epic homelab discourage me. I must one up his homelab and therefore I present to you,
the shitpost station The Bridge, where this captain sits.
This is where I spend most of my time not doing anything useful, all while using 2 out of 3 monitors max.
what a mess you might say… and youd be wrong, this is after I cleaned it up.
My main desktop is that red glowing thing. I chose red because its ironic, no AMD here.
The machine up top is my linux server. Ubuntu 18.04 running various services I almost never use except pihole… pihole is a must
dont tell anyone who thinks I hate AMD but this one is an AMD.
to the basement we have Main Engineering
This is my corner of the
house Starship where projects go often to die
There may be more content in the future about some of the stuff picture here, but today is not that day.
Next is my personal favorite, The Holodeck.
Equipped with only the finest equipment I could afford at the time or inherited, and even some overkill.
Why use a GT1030 you have laying literally right on top of your linux server to play 4k when you can use a GTX1070.
Checkmate poor people.
what the fuck, who even has a vcr anymore, I can hear you whispering.
Think about this though, why wouldnt you have a VCR when you have such classics as these?
Finally I bring you to my Captains Quarters.
This is truly where the magic happens. We have not one, but two amazing powerhouses.
You have two hands, why dont you have two laptops… what are you? poor?
Top that ensign @AnotherDev
What if you have 5?
Then you better get 10 because what will you do with your other hand?
I love all of your *nix/FOSS stickers, btw. Fucking
Impressed with all the gear and Star Trek references, to be honest. Mini Wendell lab
Now you can see if house plants improve air quality.
You can tell which machines get all the work done, they have the stickers on em.
ohhhh you should build an air quality monitor so you can see how your room is like Kanpur
My ecobee emails me when its time to change the air filter
Thats an ugly nest, how do you like it?
even more so since I accidentally knocked it off the wall and cracked the glass.
its neat. you can compare your energy usage based on other users. its got IFTTT support for some stuff. I like that I can be in bed and change it. ameren gave me $100 back on it so total cost was $80.
You have more computers than I do clothes.
Let me tell you about my TVs my friend.
so freenas doesnt want to install on these USB drives because of their size.
Looks like thats all I can do for today bois
Just cuz you wear plain grey t-shirts all the time doesn’t mean you can count that as one thing
