I did consider it and I just don't feel like dealing with it. I'm very familiar with VMware products (VCP5-DCV certified, but expired), but there's just not much point in this instance. All this would get me is that remote console thing I was talking about and a whole lot of potential headaches. I don't need multiple machines running on there, but if that ever changes, I'll just use KVM on top of the bare metal Linux install.
Nah, it's not a server board, just the board from my 2010 gaming computer (X58/LGA1366 for first-generation Core i7). No biggie, I can live without the remote console.
Eh, this remote console thing is not worth the management overhead of virtualization, I want this to be simple and have as few moving parts as possible. If it means not getting the "VNC" thing, then no biggie, I should be alright without it. Good suggestion, though!
Thanks! I'll be alright installing Linux, I've done it plenty of times and I work with Amazon Linux a lot, I'm pretty comfortable with it but far from an expert. I have a fair bit of experience managing web servers and Docker containers, but I've never had to worry about the file system or serving files in general. I'll be using Chef to manage my machine's configuration. I'm going to start coding the cookbooks soon
Thanks for the reply. I know Linux can mount NTFS volumes (and I'll need that functionality to sync the drives between one another), but I'd rather not do that. If nothing else, blame my being a neat freak, but I just want to be rid of the Windowsy stuff and run the native Linuxy stuff instead. To clarify what I meant by SSH vs. "VNC"... Compare to Microsoft's RDP vs. VNC. RDP is a semantic remote access solution whereas VNC reproduces what's actually displayed on the...
Thanks for the additional answers! I did end up buying an HD650 ($290 last Friday, great deal!). I appreciate the amp-less suggestions(s) but I was set on getting an amp anyway just so I don't have to worry about the 'phones being driven properly. So along with the HD650, I went with a Vali to complement my Magni, and picked up a Modi to set up at work with the DT990s, just because I'd been meaning to get a DAC. Everything came in over the weekend but so far I'm happy with...
Hi folks, I have a file server with Windows 8.1 that I'd like to switch to a headless Linux setup. To be clear, I'm not moving from one machine to another, I'm replacing Windows in place. I've moved the Windows apps/services I need to another machine (need iTunes and other things) so I can run the Linux server headless. For the foreseeable future, its only roles will be to run an rtorrent daemon and act as a Samba server, and maybe run some small VMs for software...
I have not heard any Senns in the 600 series and up, but I've heard a lot of what's out there is in the 500 series and was never really impressed. I'm sure the 600 series sound different, but reviews don't make it sound like they're what I'm looking for. And I still have build quality concerns with them! But I've actually read a fair bit about the HD600 and 650 (not just today!), and the sum of it is pretty confusing. Based on what I've read, I'd lean toward the 650 if I...
Eeeeeh... I've had Senns before, they're great headphones but I find them pretty boring in terms of sound, and I've had build quality issues with them.
You mean a Magni 2, not Modi 2, right? RE: the K712 vs. DT990, I already own the DT990s, they're going to my workplace, so I need new cans at home no matter how you cut it I'm not necessarily looking for an upgrade, I'd be happy with a sidegrade in quality but ideally I would like a new sound signature, maybe something more "fun" but still suited to my particular usage.
