Re: First time home buyer

I do not know if anyone has already said this but if you are going to pull cable(of any kind) always put in a service loop. Which is a coil of about a meter and a half of cable. This gives you lots of flexibility in case you ever need to relocate something. Second always run pull string through with...

Re: TR BBQ XIV - Official Thread

We'll need another grill, though, as I doubt zgirl would want to share the space. Depends really, the grill is clear by 10:30 and I only fire up one side to make burgers and dogs around 2. Which, if he brings all that, we would just need to know the amount of cooking time. Otherwise I no, I am not ...

Re: Ageing drives, NAS, and Backup Strategy Rethink

How does JBOD generally fair when a drive goes down versus RAID-0? Depends on how you are setting up JBOD. Some systems or software allows for a drive to fail in a JBOD, RAID-0 will not. Again JBOD can be just a devastating as RAID-0 but me personally I would like some type of redundancy in the eve...

Re: Ageing drives, NAS, and Backup Strategy Rethink

If it were me, I would probably: [list] [*]Leave the same drives in the NAS, but switch them to RAID-0 (giving you 8TB) The suggestion with the NAS might not be popular, but you'd be adding redundancy with the external to offset this, as well as saving money over 2x 8TB. You are right, it is not a ...

Re: TR BBQ "2nd-10th" - Official Thread - July 23, 2016

I had a few people inquire about cornhole sets. I now have the ability to produce them again. (Though I may spend some time learning how to use a surger which may speed up bag production). Regardless I am going to price out the cost of sets again and give you a price. Last time I was charging $100 p...

I don't know if anyone else will be coming up US 23 around Ann Arbor tomorrow, but it was a total parking lot from Ann Arbor to I-96. Took an hour to do that stretch. An alternate is to jump off 23 at I-94 and take that to 127, take that north to I-96. Generally less traffic. That is how I am going...

If you find a mobile "action" cam you may be able to persuade someone into using it as a grilling cam(at least for the early part of the day). I bet it would make for a great shot of me utilizing the flame thrower to light charcoal. :D
