For the last two or so years, our main editing server Whonnock has had no remote backup, meaning in the event of a natural disaster, it's very possible we could lose all of our data. Today, we fix that problem, rebuilding the most disgusting server we've ever owned into a remote backup solution.

  • Someone Please Help Me!! 😭😭😭😭 I was playing Valorant on my Asus ROG Zephyrs GA502 , suddenly it started BIOS update , then I left the room(cause the update was taking time) , then I came back after 15 minutes , but the screen was black (the screen was not black while the update) , then I left my laptop as it is for another 15-20 minutes , but still the screen was black , then I 'Force Power Off' the laptop (by holding Power Button) and then tried to turn it on again , I pressed the power button , the keyboard backlight turned on , fans turned on , but nothing on screen , not even the Asus logo that appears whenever I start the laptop, the screen was totally black , I waited for another 10min. , Still black screen , from then , whenever I start the laptop, the screen is still black. (I forgot to mention that Charging Cable was connected while the BIOS update) (Means laptop was charging while this whole thing happened) So someone please help me with this issue. I AM having a heart attack since the day it happened ( its been over a week now 😭)

  • Hehe. I once saw a server that had been in a rack for 10+ years, running non-stop. Sun's UltraSPARC II servers were miraculous... So, when we opened the case, I saw a bricket (literally) of compressed dust between the air intake and the radiator assembly. It was so tight we could shake ot away in one piece.

  • Personally I would recommend using paintbrushes with soft bristles to clean the components; a fabric duster is NOT a good idea. Though I never will likely never have setups like any of what LMG uses, really, it is interesting to watch them.

  • For future reference, 1. Open case, inspect and then turn over and let lose parts fall out. 2. rotate 360 in all directions and listen for lose parts and shake them out. 3. Take out side, put shop vac on blow and from 3 feet back blow it out and if you are nervous ground the case with a power cable to grounded outlet. I once had client that sold concrete and every 6 months the workstations had to be cleaned and the server about once a year. The solution on desktop was to move them off the ground to desktop. Base on the statement that there could have been conductive dust, very unlikely with sheet rock unless someone was doing metal grinding in the area since it settles quickly.

  • So I'm guessing that no one at LTT has ever working in an enterprise Data Centre then. We've still got Dell 2450's running on P2 CPUs with Centos 3 because they're reliable and they also can't be migrated. The dust I clean out of them monthly is just like that; no Data Centre is a clean room... contrary to popular belief. That being said, must be nice to have the budget to upgrade on a whim too ;)
