Wish I could have gone to GenCon this year. Maybe I'll be able to make the trip next year.
Dragon con for next year.
@dashrender For me personally, it's almost stressful, because as an IT educator I straddle both realities. As for your last point, my wife and I just had our 20th anniversary, btw. I know of what you speak, but do not speak of it! :)
20 years, nice. I've been married for 16, together for 23.
This isn't a NIC teaming situation.
The OP has one internet connection that needs to be split over two servers.
Normally one would install a switch and then run a cable from each server to the switch, and the switch to the internet... BUT - in this case, the OP doesn't have an open power socket for the switch (it would cost them more money) so they are looking for a way to do ICS (Internet connection sharing) from one server to the other.
This really seems like a bad idea. I'm guessing this means no Out of Band connections for the servers, and only a single connection for both servers. So if the first server dies, the second one becomes useless.
Really seems like a time to re-evaluate the priorities here - why are you in a DC if you can't afford these other seemingly needed things.
Thanks for the response! If the first server died, the datacenter team would pull the cable from the dead server and immediately plug it into the 2nd server, so there'd be a small window of downtime, but it'd theoretically take over all duties immediately. Agree it's a bad idea, but this is all for a hobby project where some downtime is acceptable and I'm trying to really be a cheap muhfuh :)
Not sure that would work. It would depend on how it's set up.
I've gone through this thread, and other than agreeing with a lot of it and learning how much I want to watch @scottalanmiller and @Dashrender sit in front of a camera and discuss just about anything, I have some fundamental questions on the topic and comments in general:
- Can we really assume working in IT without a degree is as viable as it was before? My thoughts are "yes and no" since it is so much simpler to start a small business than it's ever been before with IT, but what about simply "getting a job"?
- I cannot and will not equate the assumption that you are out of the working world or wasting your time while in college. Maybe partying was or is a common occurrence in some or many experiences, but it was not mine. I have never done college without working at least 30 hours a week and often 40 to 50. Ironically, I think I would've gotten more out of college had I been able to go full time.
- I had the experience of being 20+ years old when starting college, and working 2 and 3 jobs before that knowing I couldn't break that cycle. I went to university and I did. I can't say it's because of university specifically, but I do think there is an intangibility to going beyond HS and then into a career. You have to go to HS. You choose to go to College/University. When you get out you are motivated to make something of that. You might be the person that is motivated to do that out of HS, but more generally you are really motivated to do it when you get out of college because you chose to do it, and many employers see that value, in my experience and opinion.
Now, full disclosure I'm a college professor at the CC level. I'm not promoting this opinion out of any sort of CYA or job-security mentality, I assure you. Also, when it comes to the financial and time costs for college, those are very real, and the source of where I agree with a lot of what I'm reading here. I think the elements beyond money and time have to be accounted for (pun intended). There are intangible benefits to the College/University experience that matter. To put it in academic terms, they are qualitative and not quantitative. I could go on, but in the interest of the time value it takes to read this...
So is my wife and she completely does not accept Scott's premise. It used to lead to fights but now we just don't talk about it.
What are the bills?
The only NY NFL team.
What is the NFL?
National Football League... It's "professional" football.
What is fooseball?
@dustinb3403 no actually it's not matter but some customer want free...and as Providing open source solution we should try for it :)
It's already not free, assuming they are paying you for installing and finding solution, etc.
