    Cockroaches mayhem

    After having tried pest control and various chemicals, what worked was creating boric acid + flour baits. You can watch videos on YT on how to create them

    Budget 41-50k Building a NAS (Unraid)

    1) Any suggestions on any used server guy who has the LSI SAS 9211-8i ? or the 16 port version? 2) Say I get the 8 port version and the motherboard also has 4 ports, do I get access to 12 ports or just the 8 from the card? - I want to be able to use 8 - 10 drives in the unraid array

    Looking for cheap TWS or wireless headphones

    I have these, they work well at home - low noise environs. Once you step out, their mics pic up way too much noise and make the other person's life hell.

    Once I use Unraid, do I also need Raid controllers? Most of Unraid seems to be a non standard RAID setup, but that setup seems OK to me.

    So I am finally abandoning both my Synology systems for lack of support + hardware replacement. I am looking to build a NAS box that can hold 8 - 10 drives. Main goals will be to stream, store data from cameras, work as a backup server for the rest of the machines at home. Run some VMs/nodes as...

    Apple M1 5nm chip launched for macbook air and pro 13 inch

    Any deals offline on the M1? Also I was considering a 16GB so that I can be reasonably protected for a few years. I think the Air will last me a few years and don't want to feel hamstrung later. Use cases include 15 - 20 tabs of Chrome, python programming and some data crunching if required.

    PC Peripherals How do I get a external interface or extension that allows me to switch/swap connections from the mobo

    Yes, this is it. I guess, I am bit too old to keep the nice and shiny box on top. So since the desktop is below and the outputs are behind the motherboard - it is a challenge to swap headsets. Secondly - on the desk I have a DAC + AMP as well that I use once in a while (this does not have a...

    PC Peripherals How do I get a external interface or extension that allows me to switch/swap connections from the mobo

    I have a decent mobo with good audio and also a tube amp. How do I get my mobo connections to my desktop, so that I can switch/swap headphones easily from my top of my table? Is there a device that would allow me to select running my tube amp + DAC and/or the mobo audio (switch kind of).
