    • Yeah, but we need more forum traffic like way back when.   Forums took a hit by the ZuckerWeb and we need to reclaim them.
    • I'm lurkin' too. Reconfiguring my server cluster for high availability. Some pretty killer backend upgrades. Pretty sweet, all coming together nicely.   You may be able to notice when the site has migrated to the new setup. Some really heavy database queries in testing are returning at least twice as fast as they currently do. In the latest configuration I'm running directly off 100% Optane memory. I swear, it's alien technology.   It's not about how fast it is, there's faster (on paper, if only scratching the surface -- totally different story in the real-world) -- but it's at what queue depth that matters. And there are NAND drives out there that perform amazing. But what none of them have compared to Optane...   Optane can write directly to memory without the need for DRAM cache, it's THAT fast Optane doesn't need to first erase the cell before writing Optane has nearly unlimited write endurance Optane loses no performance as the drive fills up Optane does not require trim (goes on and on really) -- it's in between RAM and NAND   For my workload it feels the same as going from HDD to solid state. Or from solid state to raid-10 solid state. It's that big of a difference, mind blowing really. Over just a few days of testing I thrashed it with about 60 TB of data and it never broke a sweat -- literally, the drive didn't fluctuate in temp.   SMART/Health Information (NVMe Log 0x02) Critical Warning: 0x00 Temperature: 40 Celsius Available Spare: 100% Available Spare Threshold: 0% Percentage Used: 0% Data Units Read: 48,816,551 [24.9 TB] Data Units Written: 105,693,840 [54.1 TB] Host Read Commands: 937,508,694 Host Write Commands: 1,177,333,140   It just sits there at 40°C like, "Is that really all you've got? Do you realize who I am? HIT ME! I DARE YOU! This is my idle temp FOO!"    -- in other words, it's bad ass. It's a different kind of memory entirely.   Old but relevant video describing 3D XPoint (cross point)    
    • We still here. just lurkin' 😄
    • Wowzers, has it been a week already?
    • Well the issue with 4G as well as satellite type internet, is the latency can & will be erratic. Not really rec. for streaming. If your curious on your latency & stability of the connection check here https://testmy.net/latency?addr=dallas.  You can also open a command prompt & try a traceroute to see it as well.  www.fast.com is Netflix's speed test & latency site, also does pretty well.
