Benchmarked my old home build NAS, to see if I could argue for getting myself new gear (gear lust is real).
Speed was saturating the 1Gbit link in both directions, and storage space only about half used.
This on an old++ AMD-E350 CPU mini-itx with 8gb ram.
Running ZFS mirror on Ubuntu Server.
Guess no need to upgrade.
Was inspired by @HexDSL video on mutt and i3. Spend a few hours going down that rabbit hole....only to wonder, why didn't I do this sooner. It solves so many of my UI grievances with Mate and similar VMs
@ChrisWere I blame...and thank you for showing me the path. Once I complete Skyrim, I'll move on to DeusEx and Hitman. Fun fact Hitman is made by Danish gaming studio IO Interactive.
YAY, finally foundation a small allowance in my personal IT budget to do a small upgrade to my system. Went and got a EVGA GTX970 (to replace my aging GTX560ti), partly basing my decision on @ChrisWere "recommendation" and seeing how great it perform. We don't all have silly money to throw at a RTX2080. I'm quite happy with it. 1080p gaming
@ChrisWere Maybe interesting for your twitch following: DeusEx Invisible Wars is only 0,97€ on Steam today. Just letting you know 😊
