[OT] Outernet

From: Chad Smith 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm sure there's some open source / libre software being used here, so
somewhat on-topic....

You can help test a project to bring the best content of the Internet to
those who don't have the Internet.  It's like a public library for the
world.  It's called Outernet

(Copied from the website's about in plain text to save the interested
parties a click)

Announcing an opportunity to receive complimentary hardware from Outernet
in exchange for providing ongoing feedback on the functionality of said
hardware.

Join the waitlist here. - http://lnc.hr/NRxgn

(That's the link they gave me, I have no idea if that is any type of
referral link tracking thing, but my spot in line is locked in, they said,
so I'm not hyping this out of selfishness.)

We have our first piece of hardware and we need help testing it! Outernet
will be releasing its first piece of consumer hardware for sale in Q2 of
2015. This hardware is called =E2=80=9CPillar." Prior to this public releas=
e,
Outernet wishes to test Pillar in various field locations around the world.

Think of Pillar as combining your Wi-Fi router with your cable box but
serving a different purpose. Pillar is designed to work where Internet
access is unavailable either due to cost, poor service/speed, or just lack
of coverage altogether.

Once set up, Pillar receives Outernet=E2=80=99s free broadcast from space, =
which
includes content as varied as all of Wikipedia, news, weather, games,
music, video, ebooks, courseware, software=E2=80=A6 any digital file can be=
 sent
over Outernet and received by Pillar. Pillar stores these files on its
internal drive. Anyone can connect to the Pillar through its Wi-Fi hotspot.
Once connected, users view the files Pillar has received in any browser and
can save them to their smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Pillar is like an offline version of the Internet. You can see a video of
Pillar=E2=80=99s cousin, Lantern, here. The only difference between the two=
 is that
Pillar has no solar panels, more storage, and Pillar needs to be attached
to a satellite dish to receive Outernet=E2=80=99s signal (but it gets more =
data
than Lantern).

pfSense hardware for sale

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey all,
I have a PC Engines APU1D4 for sale. I bought it with the intent of using
it with EPB gigabit service, but I soon found out that it doesnt have the
horsepower ro be able to handle full gigabit across its WAN.  I was only
able to get it to sustain a stable 600 to 700 Mbps across the WAN.

Its a great unit, with only a few hours of use on it. Runs pfSense like a
champ.  Just be aware, that it will only be able to route traffic at about
600 Mbps through its WAN interface.  Its really low power, at only about 12
watts.   I have added several options to this unit that I will sell with
it. Here is the full list of goods:

APU1D4 main board
Black enclosure built for the mainboard
Wall wart power supply
WLE200NX miniPCI express card  capable of 802.11b/g/n
Two dual band antennas and pigtails
80 gig Mini-PCIe SSD drive installed

I have about $275 invested in the kit, including the SSD.  I am asking $200
for the entire kit which is assembled and will come with a clean install of
the latest pfSense nightly on it. Price is negotiable to a small degree.

You can get the details on the APU here:
http://store.netgate.com/kit-APU1C4.aspx  As well as price shop the
accessories I am including with it.

If your interested, give me an email at boodaddy@gmail.com and I will send
you my phone number.

OT: looking for server hardware

From: Nick Smith 
------------------------------------------------------
Im in search of a used server that i can turn into a NAS. FreeNas or
Nas4Free.

Ideally it would be able to hold at least 6 sata drives.
I have several of those now, but they cant take drives larger than 2TB.

I need it to be able to support 4TB+ drives. (already have the drives, just
need the server)

Anyone on the list have anything like that for sale?
Brand doesnt matter, specs doesnt matter too much.

If nothing else a point in the right direction on ebay would work as well.
Most listings ive seen dont tell me whether or not the raid controller
supports the drives i want to use.

Thanks for the help!

Colocation Space

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I know this has been brought up a few times recently, and I even answered
one of those recent threads!

But besides Jim Peace (who I do recommend), EPB, and Kite Pilot (to whom I
have an email out), is there anyone else who provides Colo services in
Chattanooga?

I'm leaning towards not getting the servers I expressed interest in last
week (offered for sale through Chugalug), but I thought I'd reach out 1
more time to find out what colo services are out there, and how much those
services cost..

Thanks,
David

HP proliant ML 110 G6

From: Adam Lewis 
------------------------------------------------------
Hi all,

Posting this here since it's in Chattanooga.

I have an HP Proliant ML 110 G6 server for sale - $275.00.  Server has been
used at home only for less than 1 year (and hasn't been used as a server.
I've used it as an audio workstation - honestly, it's been off most of the
time.)

Intel Xeon X3430 2.40 GHz / 8 GB RAM / 1 x 2 TB Harddrive /1 x 3 TB
Harddrive.

I figure at this price, someone here can use it.  I looked around for
guidelines as far as what I could post, and didn't see anything about
posting equipment for sale.  Mods, if I'm out of line, please let me
know....

If interested, email me at adam525@gmail.com

OT: needing vga cable

From: Carey A 
------------------------------------------------------
Anyone have a spare VGA cable for sale or trade? A new one at local stores
is around $30. I just rescued some older PC's and thought I'd waste my
weekend seeing what works and what doesn't. I can trade for some components
if needed, just let me know what you're looking for. Thought I'd ask here
before I hit the thrift stores and see what's on the electronics shelves.

Kid Laptop Saga continues

From: Eric Wolf 
------------------------------------------------------
Anybody have a good MacBook for sale or loan?

My daughter, Heidi, is trying to finish her senior project which involves
some video editing. Her Dell laptop is literally unhinged. The USB ports
have failed. She's trying to have me call people on Craigslist about
MacBooks. I told her to have her mother buy her a new MacBook from Mac
Authority.

Barring that, does anyone have a MacBook that runs iMovie well enough to do
some basic video editing that she can either borrow or buy? She only needs
it until the middle of April.

OT: Local Apple service experience and laptop recommendation

From: Eric Wolf 
------------------------------------------------------
My daughter has, once again, done in her Dell laptop. She's 1/2 through her
senior year of high school, so I either need to help her get something for
college or just buy something cheap to get her through the year.

Like all kids nowadays, and especially the artsy types, she's entranced by
All-Things-Apple. I would be happy to make the investment in a MacBook for
her if I knew that she could walk into an Apple Store and just get it
fixed. She's a bit accident-prone and has broken/lost/thrown across
playgrounds more electronic gadgets than I can count. Extended-warranties
are a money-losing proposition for anyone selling to her - if she actually
took action on the broken device before it expired. Apple Stores are hip
enough that I figure she just might take her broken stuff in if she had
access. Alas, Chattanooga lacks an Apple Store.

Are there any Apple repair shops in Chattanooga that come close to the
Apple Store level of service?

As an alternative, NewEgg.com has a refurb Lenova ThinkPad T60 for $225
that should be adequate to get her through the year. Chances are the
ThinkPad my be tough enough to become her backup computer through college
(when she breaks her Mac badly enough). Does anyone (Aaron) local to 'Nooga
have a comparable deal?

Lastly, anyone have experience with kingoflaptops.com? Their prices are
just a little too good to be true and there are ZERO Google-able reviews of
the company. Those two things together make me wonder. No info at the BBB.
I just Googled their listed address... One is a home for sale and the other
is an apartment in a complex:
