ixidor Re:A costly analysis (233 comments)

except have you seen any of hearings regading sthe "so-called" charities? Not only did they use the IRS, but the ATF, FBI, any any other agency they could to survail these people. Say what you will about the "tea-party" type non-profits, the way it was handled was just wrong. either shit or get of the pot. They left these people in Limbo for years.

Will Robots Take Over the Data Center?

ixidor Re:remote hands on (141 comments)

came here to say something like this. some "master" cable sort of liek thunderbolt that would be data, power, kvm, networking everything all in one, and easy for a robot to undo. possibly something optical + power cable. whatever , just something to make essentially a normal server hot-swappable.sure a human can disconnect a dead Hp server and replace it with a new Dell, but a robot might have a hard time with the network jacks moved slightly etc.
