I had an i7-4770 in my unRAID server. Waiting to go in is an ASUS KCMA-D8 dual Opteron board with two 4280s and 128GB ECC RAM. Just need two sets of C32 to AM3 HSF adapters, two AM3 HSFs and a larger PSU. All of which are on the way. Once I get the ASUS board in, the i7-4770 and ASRock H97M Pro motherboard will go in our gaming PC. I would like a new case too.

I'm just gonna stick with my 2600K in the file server and 4930K in my main rig ... but damn am I getting that upgrade itch.

Problem is, whenever I upgrade, I upgrade to hardware that's already been discontinued

Got the KCMA-D8 to post with 1 CPU and 32GB of RAM. Need to fix the second socket (bent pins) then modify the HSFs to clear the closest DIMM slots so I can fit all 128GB of RAM.

It will be going into ASUS to get socket two fixed. And I'll be modifying the HSFs soon so I can fit all 128GB of RAM in it.

First F1 race of the season ... I'm in second place in my fantasy league. Not bad, considering I was in 5th this time last year, and the guy who was in 6th was only there because he forgot to set his picks

Preparations to move still progressing. Yesterday I took my ASUS RT-AC68U off the network and replaced it with our old TP-Link WDR3600. I flashed it with OpenWRT since it now has support for hardware NAT and so now I'm getting used to it. It's designed for power users so the web GUI is almost an afterthought.

In fact I actually had to login via SSH to vi /etc/config/network to change the subnet to 192.168.2.x - the default was clashing with the AT&T Fiber 'modem'.


Still looking at forum packages. I think I've got it narrowed down to either phpBB (yes, that's right) or Invision Power Board.

Both can be made to look very similar to vBulletin 3 (what we run now).

phpBB has an absolutely huge community of developers and therefore has tons of add-ons, plug-ins, and the like.

IPB hasn't nearly as big a userbase as phpBB, but it's very much like vBulletin and is one of the fastest backend and frontend experience of any free software.

I took a cursory look at some vB alternatives and saw some noise about MyBB as an alternative to phpBB, as it's apparently more actively developed. What do you think about that one?

In other news I've set up a CentOS 7 VM on my Proxmox host to run Ansible AWX, the upstream version of Ansible Tower. That'll help me keep the various VMs and containers up-to-date with minimal effort and a relatively small footprint. I'm keeping it in its own VM so I don't screw around with the physical server too much, so if I ever need to remove it for whatever reason, it's as simple as just deleting the VM. I also have Cockpit on that VM as a browser-based dashboard, minus the cockpit-packagekit module, because for some reason it insists on trying to use subscription-manager ... makes sense for RHEL but this is CentOS, I don't need a subscription to use it. I'll just use AWX or, at worst, yum from the command line to keep it updated.

I think at this point we could almost get away with a vigorous Signal/WhatsApp chat window.
