Setting a Small Server Farm

September 7th, 2014

Right now I am sort of doing a little work off the clock for a friend of mine from North Carolina State. We graduated together back in 2003 and we have been involved in a couple of projects together since, mostly small scale things. He is a graphics artist by training, but his new venture is only partly relevant to that. He is going to need a couple of expandable servers to get started and I am going to help get a good deal from dedicated server hardware suppliers. I am probably going to get my boss to let me order all of the components on his account. He is a really cool guy and he probably knows that he is not paying me as much as he might. So he will not make a fuss about something like this so long as he gets no harm from it. Read the rest of this entry »


Looking for High Quality Cordless Phones

August 7th, 2012

I am looking for high quality cordless phones to purchase for my house, and I am hoping that I will be able to find some to my liking. I need to find the best cordless phone model that I can, because I want to buy something that will work very well. One of the most important things that I am concerned about with regards to cordless phones is the distance the phone can be from the receiver and still function properly. Currently, the best 2 line cordless phone do not function nearly as far away from the receiver as I would like.

I would like to find a phone that will function several hundred yards from the receiver. Failing that, I will take whatever cordless phone I can find that will function the furthest away. I have quite a large yard, and I like to take my phone outside with me when I tend to my gardens and vegetable patches. It is very important for me to be able to answer the phone while I am outside, because I operate a small business out of my house. Therefore, missing calls can amount to losing business, and I really do not want to lose any business.

I guess I will start searching on the internet to see if I can find any models that I particularly like. I am going to need to find some reviews for different phones as well. I will not purchase a phone before I have read several reviews on it, because I like to know what I am getting myself into whenever I make a purchase. I will be needing probably 4 or 5 new cordless phones to put in my house. I am going to be replacing all the phones that are currently in my house.
