Typical programmers making a mole hill look like a mountain.
Just use a download manager in Chrome as suggested in the 1st method on the deal link.

Newbie (Dummies) guide to downloading all eBooks:

Get the Chrono Extension for Chrome.
Open the Manager in Chrono and go to settings. Make sure 'Download URL from Clipboard' is selected, you should also disable most of the popup and notification (remember to switch them back on afterwards).

In Chrome settings -> Advanced -> Downloads, change the default to where you want to save the books (eg. downloads/MS-eBooks), disable 'ask where to save each file before downloading'. If there is an option to automatically open downloaded files for know file types, click it to remove it.

Get the url txt list: ligman.me/2tk…D2V select all and copy.
In Chrono hit the + icon then Start. Now sit back and relax, content that you've just hoarded a tonne of books you'll probably never open.

Tip, test first with just copying 4 or 5 links, then do the rest if they go smoothly.

Glad it finishes just before the GDPR comes in to effect, will be a nightmare having to rewrite.The govt dept we work for still use internet explorer 6 for their corporate software as it's cheaper to pay MS for bespoke support than pay the likes of Fujitsu, dell and us to rewrite our software to make it compatible going forward. Theyve partly moved to IE8 but have up and planning a move to IE 10 within next 18 months. Get a govt contract and you're made, they love throwing money at problems.

This unit can to my surprise do 4 1080p audio and video transcodes despite its processor because of this. You'd be forgiven for thinking all nas could do this but they can't. More powerful and expensive nas can't do as many streams. I can only assume this went cold due to a lack of understanding as to this devices value.


Exactly i know enough out plex and so on and the fact this can transcode 4 at a time at 1080p is pretty impressive for the form factor / cost. I was looking at a Ts150 however the cost of an xeon upgrade drags the price up pretty high granted I would be able to run some vms off it also

Fair enough, but that fall's into irrelevance (so to speak), purely for one reason (as you also rightly pointed out), "this deal being on each day but not what each day's book"?.

Yes, each day will be different (so well within the rules ... )

Rules aside though, can you honestly tell me that 6 Month's from now you're exactly going to remember that original poster's Post reminding you of such? (or better yet, even this time 1 Month from now?), lol.

Reminders are always helpful in my book? (that's my moto anyway, lol), especially for something like this that may//may not necessarily stay still?).

That aside again, more than 1 year back I used to Post this up on here in the HUKD Freebie Section, on an almost daily basis give or take a 1 day on, 1 day off here or there method or two ... (scroll through my earlier of early Deal's etc to see such?). :-)

They stopped giving out their freebie book's about 2 week's either end of Christmas/New Year (give or take, about 1 Month in total?) - so (within reason of course), anything moving forward now is fair game. :-)

But thanx anyway. :-)

Does this heat up food from cold? Or do you put hot food in and it keeps it warm?
ive got one of these - brilliant things
I got the Daewoo one from Robert Dyas a couple of weeks ago (didn't know about the code ) It arrived with a cracked lid and I was going to package it up and send it back but I got on to Europasonic who own Daewoo on Facebook and asked if they could send me a lid to save the rigmaroll. They sent me 2 in the post free of charge next day I love the warmer, I use it to warm plates as well as keeping dinners warm. The only thing I've found that I don't like in it is home made chips and roast spuds as they lose their crispiness even if left for 10 minutes but "wet" foods are fine and for some reason oven chips seemed to be ok

If I do make a lot of use of it then I will start adding extra data disks.

Ive never heard of unRAID before until now, it does sound like an interesting route in terms of setting up your RAID.

Do keep me posted with your build, would be interesting to know how it plans out!

At the moment i have a N54L with a P410 using X4 500GB disks in RAID5 & a 120GB SSD boot disk.

Western Digital Red drives seem to be the preferred option for many. 3Tb disks are £92 from Amazon. You want at least 2 disks if you want RAID replication for resilience against a disk failure. That would be RAID 0 which gives you no resilience against disk failure, you would want RAID 1 or RAID 5 depending on storage needs.

Google "The Ultimate Server"

I use it for THAT and because someone kept finding that Steam streaming box thing, I put Steam on it with older games (although with my GFX it handles games up to 2015ish quite well).

I also use Blue Iris on it to monitor my cheaper cameras (got NVR for better cameras).

Lastly I use Photoshop on it and After Effects which runs ok although takes an age to render so can't recommend it for that.

My recommendation is, buy a small SSD for the OS and increase the RAM. I got a 128GB SSD and 16GB RAM with Windows Server 2016 installed on it. Boot time is around 30s so a restart for updates is never too annoying.

I've also managed to put 4 hard drives on the RAID with 2 2TB mirrored for stuff I never want to lose and 2 4TB combined so 8TB there for multimedia files.

I did have to buy another SATA card to be able to use the CD ROM again though as motherboard only has 5 SATA slots and I used them all with the 4 HDs and 1 SSD.

Damn, the price has gone through the roof.
this is the guy i got it off
it came as a 1.7w variant

ebay.co.uk/itm…GNi


i plugged it into a 12v fan header on my pc to test its default speeds which i think was just under 3700 on a 12.26v fan header and slowed it down to 2000/2200 or so cant remember exactly with two reducers

it will perform far better with only one reducer you should plug one in and see what it reduces to as yours may well be different to mine and reduce far more per reducer

Delta BFB0512LD 50x50x20mm

4.63 CFM at 3850 RPM (Stock mine runs)
4.45 CFM at 3700 RPM (Spec Speed)
3.56 CFM at 2960 RPM (Speed i run mine)

Sunon Maglev GB1206PTV2-AY 60x60x25mm
7.30 CFM at 3600 RPM
5.06 CFM at 2500 RPM

the microserver fan try's to keep it at 85 with momentary peaks of 90
which is within spec but a bit toasty
and also means the case fan is going full pelt alot
fitting the sunon keeps the rear fan at 10% for a lot longer under load
and lowers the overall rear fan speeds

e.g. with my 1265L v2 with a 50mm delta at 2950 rpm it stays under 75 full load
with the rear fan running 10% to 20% depending on inlet ambient temps

if the delta wasnt there the rear fan would be on something like 50% and the core temp would be 85 peaking at momentary 90

the 1240 v2 isnt quite as easy to cool as the 1265L v2 uses a max for 38.5w under full load at 8 threads x 3.1ghz
where as the 1240 v2 uses a max of 54w under full load at 8 threads x 3.6ghz

but its the same sort of thing

Thanks for your reply, it's much appreciated!

I have got 2 spare fan speed reducers so will try those.

What is the maximum temp the CPU can safely run at?

I put an offer in of $15 for the Sunon but they are not biting and don't fancy paying $21.98 for it. I believe it is the same seller where you got yours from.

I found another seller that has one listed that is just $9.93 but has the mini 3-pin connector. Do you know if you can buy a 3-pin adapter? I have had a look but haven't found one yet.

This is the fan here

Thanks

My dad has asked me to have a look at this server as a potential desktop replacement, I have one of the T140 Lenovo machines myself and it is great as a desktop. only possible from the advice picked up on these forums. so I have a couple of questions about this machine?

What would be required to upgrade this to a fairly low end gaming desktop? I am thinking Hard drive, Sound Card?, More RAM, Graphic Card, Optical Drive and OS

What is the best graphic card around max £100 that offers the best value/performance?

Thanks
Some amazonian s got done too .. nicking £400 CPU and selling it on for £50 (bargain!) when investigating Him they caught two others as well. So..
Maybe the del driver threw over the garden fence or onto the Shed roof? or hes using it to house his pet guinea pigs
NB this would make a very good upgrade over an n40l maybe 2-3x cpu power

They said they had GPS proof that they had delivered to my house, and had a signature (which was not mine) Please be careful when purchasing this item, Yodel will steal it !



Is there anywhere else they may have delivered such as a similar name road nearby? Only reason I ask is that I know someone who gets it all the time with couriers who do not know their area with deliveries addressed to "Heath" and "Heather" roads, they are not even next road over from each other, but close enough that they can go and investigate when something is supposedly 'delivered'.

Still, not the best option as it comes with only 4GB RAM. Another 4GB ECC cost ~£50 but there are cheaper options and slightly more powerful (with AMD Opteron)

Can be used as alternative to NAS. And a very good one.
