I've used Logitech trackballs for over 20 years now. Been using the M570 both at work and at home for quite a while.
As for keyboards, I've also used various ergonomic keyboards (mostly logitech and MS) for the past 20 years. For the past 10+ years, my keyboard of choice is an Adesso PCK-208B...definitely not compatible with a tight workspace, but it works well for me. Initially bought it because, well, I'm cheap, and so was it.
Awesome thing about having a ergo keyboard plus trackball at home:
Visitor: Can I use your computer?
Me: Sure, help yourself
Visitor (looks puzzled staring at keyboard/trackball combo): Nevermind
Me (Grinning): Suit yourself
My stepfather has 4 that are linked to different machines via software the simulates the mouse movement across screens seamlessly. He likes having Fedora but also has to have windows for some in house applications.
HW wise, the main argument for synology over buffalo here in Italy is if you use a NAS as a primary file server: no Terastation 5000 has redundant powersupply, nor easy maintainance is allowed on site. If power suppl. blows: byebye data, you are KO for a couple of days.
synology is really well engineered. I'm thinking specifically at TS5400r vs rs815rp+
(also buffalo do not provides units populated with 8TB disks (not yet... hell 8TB in a single disk, brrr))
Circle has evolved much more to even pn the 4G service. I have my own review of it that I can share. It is actually not controlled by DNS but rather by device. I had it for two months before the 4G service as a trial and worked as intended but the hardest part was to control it remotely, I needed to be at home or my wife and the Android apps wasn't that great. I would think Untangle can do the sam as well. I can share my review if you want.
Veeam is a great product, and it has saved my bacon numerous times. It has so many features people just don't realize even exist. And their support has always been stellar. Thanks for sharing.
We had an issue not long ago where one of our SQL databases would throw a backup error in Veeam and bomb the backup job. Support helped me figure out there was some corruption within the database that needed to be resolved first and even gave some guidance on how to go about clearing up the corruption. Without the help from their support we might have been further corrupted and had this cause us so much more heartache down the road.
I'm also new here (referred by ntozier via osTicket forums). I'm the developer for the Reports Plugin (the new and improved reporting module for osTicket 1.10). I just wanted to drop in and say hello as well, I'll likely be lurking around anything osTicket related or anything else that catches my fancy while I'm scrolling through. ;)
