    Lightbulb Unwise computer "improvements"

    Hi,

    Not entirely sure how this will go, but I thought of a really pointless idea, and thought it would get a chuckle or a facepalm. I imagine other people would have their own "improvements" to share...

    Here goes mine:


    • Buy an 8TB external hard drive and format the whole thing as swap

    and?

    I picked up an 8T disk last week (great deal). Didn't do the swap thing, since I avoid swap on servers - RAM is cheap.
    Code:
    sdg                                          8:96   0   7.3T  0 disk 
    └─sdg1                                       8:97   0   7.3T  0 part 
      ├─istar--8TB-back3--a (dm-6)      252:6    0   3.5T  0 lvm  /misc/b-D3
      └─istar--8TB-back3--b (dm-7)      252:7    0   3.5T  0 lvm  /misc/b-D4
    Decided to make it backup storage. Leaving a little unused storage so it can be added to each LV when needed. It is nice to have a little warning before additional disks need to be purchased.

    Here's something I see often in the analogue world. Buy a really expensive top of the line latest i7, 32Gb RAM, 4Gb Nvidia GPU computer so you can surf the net, watch a few movies, listen to music and check emails. You know you want to waste your money!
