  1. To add to this here is a good source of info for secure wipe. https://www.wepc.com/how-to/securely-erase-an-ssd-drive/

    DNS services

    I'm using Google with DNS over TLS. I'm thinking about switching to another provider but they are nowhere near as fast. I highly suggest running Steve Gibson's benchmark tool to help you decide. https://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm
  3. I know this isn't exactly what you're asking but there are other router solution that include great parental controls such as Eero: https://eero.com/experience
  4. It's been almost 15 years since unraid came out. What has been the must surprising change to you in unraid? Where do you see unraid and storage technology in the next 5, 10, 15 years? I also can't believe I've been using it since 2008!
  5. I just saw on their blog at the podcast is back! I highly recommend it for the homeserver/unraid crowd. I'm enjoying the first 2 new episodes and thought everyone on here would as well. I'm in no way associated with ls.io just a fan of their work. https://blog.linuxserver.io/2019/05/16/the-podcast-is-reborn/
  6. Yup they do. I'll use them for a hoodie! Thanks! Edit: Ordered!
  7. Wow I somehow completely missed that option. Thanks for pointing that out Squid I'll customize and order. Edit: Is there a place to get a higher res image of the logo? I can't make it bigger since it's too low res
  8. I would love to buy a hoodie but they are a little boring looking. A small logo in the middle of a hoodie doesn't really do it for me.
  9. Yeah me too. I might start another thread asking for some recommendations.
  10. I would do this: https://www.amazon.com/ARRIS-SURFboard-SB6190-DOCSIS-Cable/dp/B016PE1X5K/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?keywords=arris+surfboard+1gbps&qid=1553559217&s=electronics&sr=1-1-fkmr1 Unless you wanted to really really future proof (but I think it's a waste of money) then you could do this: https://www.amazon.com/Next-Generation-ARRIS-SURFboard-SB8200-DOCSIS/dp/B07DY16W2Z/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_2?keywords=arris+surfboard+1gbps&qid=1553559217&s=electronics&sr=1-2-fkmr1 Remember these are just modems you'd still need a router. Unless you were looking for a gateway?
  11. Hi, 1. It would not! It's the smart thing to do! It'll save you a bunch of money in the long run. 2. Can you let us know what speeds you have? Modem will depend on down/up speeds. But I always go with a ARRIS Surfboard modem. I've never had a single issue with them for many many years. Again depending on your speed I can't recommend a specific model. 3. As long as you go with a good reputable brand you should be ok! Be a bit weary buying a used on from craigslist or ebay as if it's not removed from the old account you can't add it to yours.
  12. Thanks for that link! Is running that command the same as running it through the GUI? Also I seem to have lost all my settings for my nzbhydra2 container Edit: Weird I lost indexer settings but logs and history are still there. Restored from backup and all is well.
  13. Hi, Out of the blue my nzbhydra2 container stopped working. I got some errors about cache utilization being high but then returned back to normal. I tried to restart the container and got a 403 error. Looking at the looks there are some BTRFS errors but I don't know what they mean. I haven't restarted the system yet. Can someone please take a look and let me know the next steps I should take? DIag attached. Thanks! namek-diagnostics-20190309-1724.zip
  14. Running AWS would have been cheaper than their current repair and recovery costs. Also cheaper and faster to scale.
  15. I wonder why they aren't running in AWS or any other cloud provider.
  16. An update! https://www.supermicro.com/en/news/CEO-3rdPartySecurity-Update I'm just waiting for a lawsuit to drop.
  17. Thanks! That was a good read. After reading that and the SEC statement released: https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1375365/000162828018012712/exhibit991_20181018.htm I'm starting to side with SM. I wonder if SM is preparing a lawsuit in the meantime.
  18. I don't believe that is true. If the Snowden leaks are to be believed (which I do believe them). Then NSL and NSA gag orders trump all. Even if someone asks you if you are under a gag order you can't say that you are. You have to deny it. https://www.zdnet.com/article/national-security-letters-everything-you-need-to-know/ Just a thought. Let's say there are a few people at Apple or Amazon that know about this but are under NSL. The story comes out, PR emails the company saying if anyone knows anything about this let us know. The employees can't say anything so everyone denies it. Apple releases a statement saying they strongly deny it because from the point of view of PR it never happened.. That's just an example of what might have happened in my opinion.
  19. I don't know if you guys listen to the This Week in Tech podcast but they had Mark Milian from Bloomburg on there and they talked about the story for about 20-30 minutes. It was interesting to hear his side of things even though he wasn't the one who wrote the story. I starting to lean more toward the article being true.
  20. It's possible since they supposedly are going through the BMC. If they said it was another way I would doubt it, but BMC can do everything in the article.
  21. Oh I know, most boards are made at/around the same place, but if I can lower the risk by using a less high volume supplier. I don't plan on dropping my SM board but I think I might think twice about buying one in the future (TBD future news). And I love SM, we only use SM JBOD's and blades at work.
  22. Going forward when building your next server would you guys skip over SM? Or would you still use their boards? HP with iLO is looking mighty nice right now.
  23. I've though about this since I'd read the news and others comments. It can be farfetched but at the same time if there is any type of gag order on these companies then they have to deny it. It can also be that only certain people in the companies know excluding PR so the statements released will obviously say this is false. Or bloomberg got the news wrong. If there is any country that can pull off this type of espionage it would be China, so I definitely think it's possible. Either way this is going to really hurt supermicro because if the sue and they prove that they are in the right I bet the news won't report it and the damage has already been done. I love/loved supermicro so I really hope the news is wrong.
  24. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2018-10-04/the-big-hack-how-china-used-a-tiny-chip-to-infiltrate-america-s-top-companies It's a great article. Makes me want to get rid of my SM motherboard in my unraid server. It looks like from the photos it's their blade motherboards but who knows, it makes me lose trust in a company. There are very strong denials from AWS and Apple about the article. It's a he said, she said situation. Of course they are going to deny it, but at the same time maybe the bloomberg sources are wrong? What do you guys think about the article?
