@FaheemMitha the other alternative, depending on how much space you need is to have a standalone network device
I used to use a 3tb NAS for years before the NAS bit died

@JourneymanGeek That's probably overkill for my purposes.
Though I did consider it at one point. How much does a standalone network device cost where you are?
 
7:19 AM
about 200-300 for a single disk one I think

so one of my neighbours had a parts machine - a lenovo Y900, core i7 6700, 32 gb ram (24 works... I'll come to that) and a pair of 970s in SLI for ~125 SGD as a parts machine...
turns out one of the ram slots is bad and it works perfectly otherwise
I need to decide what I want to run on it + if I want to keep it as is, or swap out the GPU for my old 980TI
Naturally I thought it take more than an hour or two to fix, and it took about 15 minutes, and I didn't bring any install media to my new place

Why would you even waste time on old tech like that? Might as well use it as a paperweight. You're probably going to spend more time tinkering with it than actually using it. If you're talking about running anything useful, do yourself a favor and get something that wasn't pulled out of a time capsule.

@FaheemMitha I instructed him to be "grumpy" and "unhelpful". He fulfills this role surprisingly well lol

@XKCD XKCD #2936 Explained: Exponential growth is the principle that if you keep multiplying a number by a value larger than 1, you will pretty quickly get very large numbers. Even if you start with 1 and simply double it each time, you'll have a 10-digit number after about 30 iterations.

@FaheemMitha keeping the chat from being too quiet :D
Which is vaguely succeeds in
Also why does lenovo, who literally inherited the legacy of IBM, have worse service manuals than DELL
and huh
this has a pair of PCIe x16, like apparently actual ones
