    Welcome to the forums.

    I use WoL on my PowerEdge 1750's. They run 200 to 240 watts, so I only wake them when I need to do some development work. I use RaspberryPi's for 24/7 service--only a few watts of power. I'm...

    Re: Do Chromebooks Make Good Linux Laptops?

    No, no, yes.

    Used ones are in the $200 to $250 range. Battery life is around 2 hours. 4 hours if you put in fat battery or a DVD battery. I think they are a good balance between portability,...
  7. Re: Recovering data from WD MBWE II NAS in RAID 1
