how much is spending 1/2 a month picking the right one, from reading 500 pages of user forums about them, to see which problems are the least of your worry, then analising the electronics for best chances of working in a few years
A lot. Not all the time, but when I want to upgrade my systems, yeah it does
If I could buy a raspberry pi for USD 35 I'd buy 10 and start classes for kids that wanted to learn computing
would have to find a place for that, might not be so easy... (In fact, I am currently trying to find somewhere to teach WordPress pro bono, an NGO or something, and it's a bit difficult to find and organization interested.)
almost all these board brands mentioned come in about 4 flavors. The Flagship models , one for overclockers with deep pockets, one for gamers who add the name game to it and suddenly they have deep pockets. Then there is the Made just about the same way, with the same basic electronics, a few less features boards that many people buy (and has a lot of user support because of it) . then there is the Weakend versions of them, that are not designed for overclocking and will work . . .
besides the quality of the board, the software they supply is next, most of it unneeded , some of it needed for special purposes. it all sucks , so if a person is actually needing any of this software, it would be good to check with users for just how badly it does suck.
Man, OOO Man.
THIS IS AN ISSUE IM HAVING W/ THE ROACH NEIGHBORS.
DOING RESEARCH AND AM GETTING SUCH AN EDUCATION. WHAT APPEARS ON MY BT SPEAKS IS THE HK AND ANOTHER SEQUENCE OF #'S and the u d name of the minimav

If there is a way to reconnect and block them from shutting down my BT CONNECTIONS. Right now when searching and ttemt i ng to reconect the speakers purchased keep geetig device no found, or ONLY thier: "Rosenmy Mercado mini mac", OR, "HK ONYX STUDIO", OR # Sequence; 01:4F:,etc
They also do this...
There is a nice program written in php5 that displays
a lot of system info on the running system.
Is there a comparable tool that runs in a linux console
and displays the info directly on screen?

I was told many years ago to do this by someone who at the time knew more than I did. The CPU was a celeron in the Pentium 2 era. It ran cooler with the toothpaste between the chip and the heatsink than what it did with nothing between.
Has anyone else ever heard of or tried this? What were t...
"With physical access to the machine" potentially a person could write a new firmware for any machine. or they could take it to the freeway overpass, and drop it on someones head Killing people :-)
I think we should worry more about how terrorists would be able to use these computers as weapons of mass destruction, with physical access, and all computers in skyscrapers should be bolted down in steel cages.
@DragonLord because of the tiny numbers that the specs have for the actual parts, are rediculous compared to a HD. Because failing in any way sucks, and it being "able" to move stuff that is about to fail, or to keep stuff from failing, does not define edge case scenarios. A fault based system can have more fails.
Sure but the system will put tens of thousands of writes on it for you every day :-)
Certannly a person can open the resource monitor and see what kind of psycosis of the windows OS is about writing stuff endlessly. Course it is more prevelent in the "pro" and server systems, where logging & tracing is a constant.
There are critical hidden file items for the file system, that get heavily abused, and will require wear leveling shifting as a constant. One error moving this stuff around, or one actually failed Bad guess of the transister charge states, and you have error.
@DragonLord but everyone is thinking BIG, if i put 50 movies on it, and read them for the rest of my life it would never fail. but if i have to change whole blocks over 645bit pieces repeating 10 times a minute for 24 hours a day, then that is something.
Nickle and dime somone to death, and they have no money :-)
@DragonLord And we know that computers determining the state of a piece of hardware , works right everytime. even though stuff like "SMART" actually only adds at most possible 20% fact that your drive is going to die before it does without it telling you. Smart being another hope and pray system, that a person could believe reduces thier need for a backup, putting them at even higher risk than not even looking.
So IMO it is not so much that it will die tomorrow, it is that it will fail, and MAY not always patch itself up correct. and Little tiny changes in files big and small are barely noticable, but can become hugely annoying and destructive. I would far rather something not be able to BE stored, than for it to be stored changing 1 tiny bit in there off by 1 binary 0or1
Because ya dont SEE tiny errors until it is to late :-(
So now backups should include full bit comparisons, so you know if any aspects of things are collapsing internannly and corrupting single bits, otherwise the backup itself is invalid.
And like re-reading the file out of the caches ? :-) not all checking methods actually check
So far the testing users have been doing have not actually proved anything other than the car can drive 1,million miles, I am still waiting for the proof that all the passengers arrived with thier cells intact
We wouldnt want this new fangled stuff to be party to the collapse of the system, In That Way. because the little tiny errors that are never figured out, are the worst kind.
When a hard drive started relocating sectors around it was "Its Dead Toss it, run for the hills" even though the system was designed to do exactally that.
When somone would assemble 4 hard disks together people would say "oh my that is highly unstable any aspect of it could fail at any time, and the whole thing would go" but when the new technology raids together 16 nand chip units in a box , where were all the Raid0 haters?
It just seems that if treatment of the new technology was the same as the old stuff that has been around and has not been sped up for crap (hd speed advancements have been density) that we really never would have "accepted" MLC and 3D and expected the manufactures to stay with a binary SLC cells method.
I put the SSD in for pure speed, and testing. my raids are just as fast, but not when it comes to all that tiny stuff, and the whole system is little parts and pieces now, so the SSD still blows away the raid , even defragged, and cached and short stroked , and anything else i could think of.
