I own this device, and it is great. I might pick another one up at that price - I think I paid more than double when it first came out.

Any recommendations for a cheap 24+ port, gigabit, rack-mounted, managed switch that is QUIET? I have an unmanaged switch right now that is the loudest thing in my server room at home.

24 port is hard to come by without a pretty loud fan. thing is I couldn't find much that was cheap. The best one was an HP, but I can't find the model. It was also about $300

I found this for $170:


All the reviews I've read have been quite positive and it's fanless.

I have a NETGEAR ProSAFE GS724T and it is quiet. I don't really recommend it as it periodically needs rebooting, usually when we are watching a movie online. I did however just break down and update the firmware. To my utter shock it was easier than I thought. Let's see if that solves it.

iPad mini 2 (which is only missing Touch ID compared to the latest model) is a smoking deal at Best Buy, starting at $225. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-ipad-mini-2-with-wi-fi-16gb-silver-white/7008561.p

I'm not sure what it says when the servers melt down because of the deals offered by a hosting company, but they're good otherwise. If you need hosting/domains/etc, namecheap.com is running hourly (and unit-limited) specials through midnight ET today and again for 24 hours Monday. Good stuff like $0.98 hosting (1 year, shared) and domain transfers.

I don't know if those deals are applicable, but to add the affiliate code to any BH link, add "/BI/1940/KBID/2629" to the end.

I'm going to be adding an Amazon Affiliate search box to the site soonish.

I've deemed NOW is the time to BUY LED LIGHTBULBS. They have arrived.
Photos of installed.


I bought two different ones past few days.

100W CREE Daylight dimmable, 1600 lumens. Home Depot has them for $21; but when I went to store, the electric utility cut $5 off the shelf price, to $16. Rubbery coating on plastic casing/shell.

And this one.
Lowe's $15. 100W warm (~3000K) light, NOT daylight (~5000K).

And tossed in this $6 FLAT 60W Daylight from Philips

Also noted that Target has some affordable 100W bulbs, too.

I am sitting here with my old-man eyes, soaking in this daylight LED goodness. No flicker. CFL create a reality-distorting flicker/noise for my eyes. These do not.

Worth noting that the 100 watt selections have such a large base/heatsink that they do project light 'upwards' away from base. The Philips flat bulb projects more light downwards toward base. Has little to no real bottom heatsink and feels ok to the touch. I can keep my hand on it ad infinitum. NOT SO with the 100 W heatsinks. they are hot.

I've been switching everything in my house to LED over the last few years. I'm particularly happy with the LED flood lights in my backyard.

for massive light, I still like my metal halide patio light.
8000-16000 lumens (not sure why range)
After cars and such were broken into few years back, I put these up on corners. Just to make my home less hospitable to ne'er-do-wells.
