Net Neutrality Fight

SSD/HD… why not SSD/NAS?
CJ wrote [email protected], “I used to do the smaller SSD for programs and larger HDD for data but ever since I built my NAS I’ve been using just SSDs in my systems. I know you both have mentioned having a NAS so I’m curious why you don’t recommend moving data off of the system to the NAS and using a smaller SSD for the system?” Our answers in the video!

Ping, Traceroute, MTR
Want to find out why a website (or everything) on your Internet is running slow? Three tools can help tons: Ping, Traceroute, and MTR. We show how to use ’em, Shannon adds a Netstat demo on Linux (and mentions Wireshark). WinMTR.net is the place to get WinMTR for Windows, and Linode has help analyzing MTR results!
