List of SMR drives:

>What hardware do I get?
Depends on your use case. a simple file server can be run on an SBC with a couple hard drives attached. If you want to do more fancy things like virtualization, streaming 4K movies, etc you are going to want better hardware.

>What OS do I use?
See above useful links section. OMV is good enough if all you are storing is rarely accessed (pirated) media. Even standard Linux like Ubuntu supports software raid and filesystems like OpenZFS. FreeNAS is BSD based and fairly simple to install and use but server grade hardware and ECC memory are recommended.

>Should I use raid 5 (or raid 5 equivalent)?
if you don't really care if you lose your data, sure. At least try to aim for two disc redundancy or do a raid 10 instead

>Should I Shuck?
It's massively cheaper to buy easystores/etc (when they go on sale during black friday) than it is to buy an equivalent size NAS hard drive like WD red/Iron wolf. Just remember: YOU GET NO WARRANTY. if your drive fails you are fucked. When you buy regular NAS drives you are basically paying more for the warranty.

>SMR or CMR?
SMR drives are bad. just avoid them all together. See the WD red guide for which models are SMR and which are CMR. All Seagate NAS drives are CMR. Easystores 8tb and above should be safe.

for the OS and programs only, or for use in cache. Don't buy SSDs for main storage unless you want to spend tens of thousands.

Don't buy prebuilt NAS. They are garbage.

With this release, Firefox introduces a number of improvements that make watching videos more delightful:
* the Picture-In-Picture button has a new look and position, making it easier for you to find and use the feature.
* Picture-In-Picture now has a keyboard shortcut for Mac users (Option + Command + Shift + Right bracket) that works before you start playing the video.
* For Windows users, Firefox now uses DirectComposition for hardware decoded video, which will improve CPU and GPU usage during video playback, improving battery life.

Firefox is faster than ever with improved performance on both page loads and start up time:
* Websites that use flexbox-based layouts load 20% faster than before;
* Restoring a session is 17% quicker, meaning you can more quickly pick up where you left off;
* For Windows users, opening new windows got quicker by 10%.
* You can now explore new articles when you save a webpage to Pocket from the Firefox toolbar.
* WebRender continues to roll out to more Firefox users on Windows.

* Screen reader features which report paragraphs now correctly report paragraphs in Firefox instead of lines.
* Various security fixes

* Credit card auto-fill is now more accessible with the card type, and the card number in the card editor now available to screen readers.
* Printing dialog errors for invalid form entries are now reported to screen readers.

* MediaSession API has been enabled by default which allows web authors to provide custom behaviors for standard media playback interactions, giving them more options than ever.
* DevTools now shows server side events in the Network panel. This allows a server to send new data to a web page at any time allowing developers to see events they previously couldn't and help with lower-level troubleshooting.

Good job Firefox! You surprised us with this update! :)

So we just had the 4th privacy extension lost in the span of a month. I think the ad companies are pulling out all the stops.

Does anyone know gorhill in IRL? Please make sure he's okay.

I had a convection heater like #1, 1500W. It broke and I was told oil filled radiators like #2 use less power. When I was in the store I saw a small one which was 500W and a big which was 2000W. I bought the small one. It turns out it's too small to heat my room. I'm thinking of buying the big one. But it's a little bigger than my convection heater that broke, and it has wheels which seems stupid, I'd rather it doesn't move easily. And isn't the Watt a measurement of how much power it uses? Will a 2000W heater really use less power than a 1500W heater, even if it's not set to max but let's say it's set to 1500W for example? Wouldn't they use the same amount then?

Parents Name Daughter After Internet Provider to Get Free Wi-Fi for 18 Years

No.78302656 ViewReplyOriginalReport
A Swiss couple has named their baby daughter Twifia after Internet start-up Twifi and won themselves 18 years of free wi-fi internet.

The young couple responded to a Facebook ad from Twifi, a Swiss Internet provider, which dared parents to name their newborn Twifus (if it was a boy) or Twifia (if it was a girl) in exchange for 18 years of free internet. The parents, aged 30 and 35, ultimately decided that Twifia wasn’t that bad of a name, and the thought of getting free internet for 18 years and putting that money in a savings account for their daughter was appealing. So after thinking it over, they decided to make it official, putting down ‘Twifia’ as their daughter’s middle name on her birth certificate.

“The more I thought about it, the more unique the name became to me, and that’s when the thing acquired its charm,” the girl’s father said. The mother wasn’t sold on the idea at first, but she eventually agreed.

“It’s his child too,” the mother said. “And for me, the name Twifia also stands for connection in this context. For an eternal bond! There are much worse names. And the more often we say ‘Twifia‘, the heartier the name sounds!”

After careful consideration, the Swiss couple decided to remain anonymous, admitting that they felt “somewhat embarrassed” about their decision, and didn’t want to justify their choice of name for their daughter to anyone.

“We want to remain anonymous to those around us because we don’t want to justify ourselves. Because the accusation of having sold our child’s name hits us very hard,” the parents said. “We are also a little ashamed.”
