Before you downvote and flag a post, how about instead considering an answer to help the newbie find their way towards an answer? Please help me not think that the sole purpose of a diamond moderator is to run good people off from the SE sites.

The SE network is such a great resource to learn from, however, once you ask "how do I do this?" and they think you're a newb? The normal response Stack Exchange has are its diamond mods do a drive by: vote down, close, and move on without any effort to help the person seeking help.


Ex Navy, biker scum, got a BSEE magna cum laude (with distinction in my degree), embedded Software Engineer, turned entrepreneur. I am IT. Not I-T like information technologies (although I'm I-T, too). Added the bit about having a degree since people who habitually downvote answers seem to all have them, too. I hope that doesn't rub off onto me...

No, IT, like "ha ha you're it"

Running a business has turned me into a modern day DaVinci through necessity. CAD? Yup. Linux sysadmin? Uh-huh. Machinist, Electrician, Php, mysql, postgres, graphics design PS AI ID, non-consensual visual basic, and back to some great embedded C/C++.

comment What limits Windows 7 x64 machines to <=192GB RAM?
And what M$ does with cpu count and cpu core count is even more absurd. If it didn't require so many licenses, my CAD desktop at work would be a 8 position AMD with 8 cores each. The goal was @fah workstation with the excuse of being a CAD workhorse.

So from the outside, all the ports look the same however only a subset support QoS? My question intentionally didn't get into management features. + I'm not playing musical chairs; my VoIP boxes stay on their two ports forever.

+1 this is what I'm asking for! I can imagine advantage to grouping within a module.

+1 I just replaced generic CAT5 cables in my rack with purpose made CAT6 cables and noticed improvement in performance.

comment How to setup VLAN on same subnet as Ethernet
This Q/A made me go read. eth0.10 is a VLAN, as linux can handle 802.11q. (See wiki.ubuntu.com/vlan) I was confusing this with eth0:1, etc, is a virtual interface, which allows the same NIC to have multiple IP addresses.

comment Copy entire file system hierarchy from one drive to another
Genius, thank you. Btw, I ended up using rsync -avxHAWX --numeric-ids --progress / mnt/ but I should have done rsync -avxHAWX --numeric-ids --progress / mnt/ > ~/rsync.out. I suspect pouring the output to the terminal slowed the process. :D
