    I do like volleyball anime, yes.

  • Lots of luck finding an SSD8G. I had a handful of the 4G VPS for $2/mo, and I ended up giving those away to LET folks at cost. I had hoped those would supplement the cause, but so many people have been gracious with hardware, donations and ideas that I think it's more than broke even for the last few days of my life where I have been busting ass to get these done.

    One of our very own LETters might be getting an ugly laptop out of the deal, too, since he's sitting on one older than some of this gear I'm giving to the vets.

    I have an AMD Sempron something if anyone has a use for it- I haven't seen anything that uses that hardware for many, many moons.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

  • I have a ssd2g for $5/m but they are saying I am using high IOPS. they are not giving the allowance on higher plans saying its confidential and sometimes suggesting ssd4g with high IOPS or ssd8g. They claim I am using 800 IOPS. Dont even see a way to check the resoure usage myself

  • @muffin i would love to know the best rate possible.

    It’s the rate on the site.

    I think you may have misunderstood how this thread worked.

    They tend to be "shorts", unless they include the entire set design setup. Those tend to win awards at Sundance.

    ..and the HDs prepurchased arrived at the folks yesterday, which may be good for the next run- provided I can obtain more desktops cheap enough.

    @AuroraZ - for giving without asking, and being a LETter who has sent noodz served the unwashed masses, you are getting a special thanks. *

    Not sure I should open any boxes from you that aren't clearly labeled. I am kind of squeamish about the labeled ones as it is.

    Order now.

  • @benj0x said: Whats the monthly price of an SSD8G?

    $40.

    Just got back from town, and there are 4 ready to accept laptops now, and they will setup a small "shortlist" for the desktops and any remaining hardware. Mods will be given proof of acceptance, and as the project isn't over, any remaining amounts spent (it's gone now, but I'm not done) will be going towards obtaining monitors for the desktops, and in the short term, a few hundred flags for this weekends' events.

    Current laptops ready- 5 (and a Sony Vaio screen from 1994, because it makes a good marker):

    In progress: Possibly 3. Having some unhappy hardware, and trying to figure how much I can fix, and when to cut it loose.

    Current Desktops ready- 0:

    HDs are still burning in, and I don't have the hardware to do a KVM setup anymore. My old Desktop/KVM is DVI, and none of these machines have it, and I can't find any adapters - I gave those away years ago.

    3 Desktops to work, possibly a 4th, although it's only a Core2, it will take 6GB RAM. Could be useful for one of the focus-follows-sight sort of getups; I already have a 2MP webcam to go with it.

    I was just thinking that you should have doubled the asking, they were still a bargain at $100 a piece considering the normal cost.

    I still wanted to make a decent deal for LET. It should hopefully cover the monitors if I can pick them up at $20/ea for older 15". It annoys me to be buying back what I unwittingly donated a few months ago.

    Thanks so much for the offer, @svmo. I'd be more than happy to put your donation to the cause.

    Currently laptops will hopefully be received tomorrow, with the ongoing projects - well- ongoing.

    Yesterday was spent herding cats, and I'm still not done with that. Some real life tends to sneak in every so often, as well. :)


    VRC will be taking the 5 completed machines tomorrow.

    First off: NO MORE VIRMACH. NONE.

    Got this set of lappies all cleaned up, marked with specs, loaded with bundled software (Works 7 came with the Dxxx series, woo!) in some cases, and extra parts/dongles for a couple- but retaining drives/etc for the next set.

    They are being delivered tomorrow- forgot to note that.

    This set of laptops are specifically designated to those veterans who have returned, and due to various issues are finally entering assisted community college, starting Winter Session (December 26th). I've disabled the clitmouse on all but one unit, and a couple don't even have them.

    Minimal specs are 2G (Max supported on i8xx)/30G(one EIDE beast in the mix)/Wireless (802.11g+), newer-to-brand-new batteries and chargers. Hard to get much lower-end than that for production, eh?

    The desktops and any subsequent laptops will be presented for Spring 2018 (and beyond) due to time constraints on the VRC, and the fact that I'm still waiting on parts.

    Thank you everyone for your assistance!

    Not long after got off the phone with G (name and info will be provided to mods tomorrow after I get clearance), they told me that one of the biggest problem they have this time of year isn't only many being nearly-or-homeless since people have been kindly donating hats, gloves, and socks- but often their inability to be able to make appointments not only needing to rely on public transport- but many pawning or otherwise losing their cellphones. It's tough to be homeless on anyone- and with disabilities, it can't any easier.

    I came up with a solution to one problem, and I'm not telling them until tomorrow. _You get to learn about it today. _

    It's a carabiner radio/clock/alarm/flashlight which is worth nearly nothing (so it won't be stolen), but keeps time and has a rather loud alarm. It should last at least 6 months on the current (old stock) batteries. With included headphones, it will hopefully help them enjoy their choice of audio entertainment for awhile, too.

    I bought 60 of them (all the vendor had left boxed) for ~$120.00 ($1.75/ea, discounted + 8.075% tax) after buying one and testing it myself for a week to see how well it'd work.The oil is not related to this project, but is also out for use tomorrow.

    Even on old batteries, these seem pretty resilient- I left it outside overnight on the stairs, and in the yard when it dropped below freezing. It got a little damp, but still works just fine. Flashlight is a low power LED, and the 3 LR44 watch batteries are still under $1 for complete replacement.

    It’s the somewhat unhealthy obsession with Emma Watson that might be the sticking point if they find the CM thread.

    Believe it or not, I completely forgot. It was "Grinch" something. It's been a hell of a day- I just got home, 6 hours later. It was funny, though. Today they were closing at noon to have a small "Christmas Holiday" for the crew, and all were dressed up for the occasion. I've got a flier I'll be scanning later to list if anyone wants to assist.

    Sadly, they can't take any direct monetary donations other than checks, so any future stuff will have to be by PP proxy, or to send them a check directly. I'll post their address/info later. THE MODS have been given contact information for confirmation of this part of the task completed.

    Also, I got your package today, thanks!


    Something told me to clean up and donate the C2D, and when I spoke with her this morning, she said that although there were 4 initially, there was a fifth who was going to start at the school this winter season. She was overjoyed that there was no "currently missing" from the short list.

    They also need a printer- theirs broke. We're going to get them the hookup.
