Re: Why is DAT 72 still so expensive?

Sounds like fun. I don't think you will win with 2003 technology especially if you are up against 5.25 floppy drives. :wink:

Re: Why is DAT 72 still so expensive?

In this day and age why would you want to use DAT 72? It really isn't expensive compared to single tape LTO4 drives (500 -600 vs 1500 - 2000) and especially compared to the automated ones. The media is much cheaper (15 vs 80) but holds much less (36 GB native vs 800 GB native).

Re: Server 2008 R2 - Random Shutdowns

6 months = 180 days. after that, 2008 server shuts off hourly, without proper activation. time to pony up $$ to MS for a license for this error to go away. R2 gives you 30 days but won't shutdown the OS. It gives a nag message when logging off or on and you can only get critical updates when using ...

Re: DirectTV vs Dish Network

I switched from DirectTV to Dish after about 2 years of use. The primary reason was the price. Not only was I paying 70-80 a month but DirectTV charges 10 for the HD package (any hd stations included with any package). With Dish I got a similar package that was about 35 a month as a promotion then w...

Re: What is networking, do I want to make it my career?

My school estimates that I'll be able to earn between 50 to 70k to start out. Nonsense. In this survey, the average respondent with just a CCNA earned $29,000 . That's not starting salary, mind you, but in-vivo actual pay. I would expect the job you get with a B.S. to be better than that by a littl...

I wouldn't build a rack mount server unless it is not running a critical service or app or can't be down for more than a few days. If you have any hardware problems then you have to deal with each manufacture warranty and they are not tailored for quick response / return. Both HP and Dell have same ...

Re: Need some help with Tracert result...

If the other computer on your network connects fine then I don't think you have a isp issue nor an issue with your router. I would boot off a live ubuntu disc and see if you can access it through that. If you can then you have either a spyware problem or a program that has inadvertently blocked it. ...

I wish the AI of the companions was a little better. For example, they do not have the ability to jump over obstacles.

What might crimp your style is living in the DC area. Any bike stored outside in DC for at least an hour, anywhere, will eventually be stolen if secured with anything less than a medieval iron portcullis draw-chain...and even then, preferably electrified. If you can't store it indoors at all times,...
