If you think about the Rule of 72, if you take 6 years to go to college, you would have half as much money at retirement as someone that started 6 years earlier assuming a 12% return. 12% might be a generous rate of return, but so is doubling your entire 401 as you near retirement.

RE: Small office phone setup, looking for improvements...
since they are an ecommerce, they do make a lot of outgoing calls to customers long distance.
wait, what? You're eCommerce business and your internet isn't reliable and you don't have a second connection? That doesn't seem to fit.
RE: Installing Debian 9.1 minimal
For those wondering how much space you save using the minimal install vs the typical install that Vultr does, here you go:
(note, this is after a unifi controller install: https://mangolassi.it/topic/14601/how-to-install-the-ubiquiti-unifi-controller-on-debian-9-1 ) Thanks for @JaredBusch for both his guides.

As you can see, it's the difference between being able to use a 20GB VM and not.
RE: Windows CLI: Net User
But when I try to sign with this account I am unable to do so, even though the command completed successfully.
Usually the next thing I do after creating a local user like that is add it to the right local group.
Then when logging in, make sure you're using .\testNTGuser
so that it's not looking for a domain account with that name.
RE: i5 vs H110 processor for business desktop
@psx_defector I could count on one hand the number of users that I have that have heard of a pivot table... :) In this case, by Office, I meant using 5% of the functionality of Word and Excel and having a bunch of web pages open. Rendering videos as they play automatically when scrolling facebook is probably the hardest thing the computer will be asked to do most of the time.
I know there are all kinds of benchmarks out there, but it seems like the real world performance of the machine feels different than what the benchmarks say.
RE: Mac Book Air and Ubiquiti VPN
@JaredBusch ZeroTier for the win! Once we got the Ubiquiti VPN configured and working, it proved to be unreliable. At first we thought it was the user, but after watching what he was doing and checking the stats on the ER, we found it was nothing he was doing - it just wasn't reliable.
I tried ZeroTier myself and then set it up for the client and it works just like I wanted it to.
i5 vs H110 processor for business desktop
HP has a business desktop on State contract that has the H110 processor. (HP 280 G2 3.3GHz Pentium 4GB RAM 500GB HD - Z2G20UT#ABA) I'm having a hard time figuring out how this stacks up compared to an i5 processor for business applications. It looks like the H110 is only a dual core (so like an i3) but do the other features make it faster in real world tasks than an i5?
