Enhanced Intelligibility Without Cable Clutter

Challenge: The ESA office in Brussels wanted a reliable audio conference system for video conferences. Their requirement - No participant must be left out from the conference and the audio quality must not be compromised.

Moore’s Law has proven itself time and time again since it was first introduced. So what’s next? Will Moore’s law continue to remain relevant, or will new technology take over and bring us the next big advancement in computing?

Are you kidding?

The most important aspect of childhood is to play.

The future generation will have nothing in common with ours and you need to know how to play in order to be successful.

Hi Abraham, I had to leave for a few days unexpectedly so apologies for the delay in editing.  I should be back in the next few days, however if you would like to have it edited sooner, please use the Request Attention option to contact a moderator who may be able to assist. Other than that, I'll get back on it first thing once I've retuned.

This article is in regards to the Cisco QSFP-4SFP10G-CU1M cables, which are designed to uplink/downlink 40GB ports to 10GB SFP ports. I recently experienced this and found very little configuration documentation on how these are supposed to be configured.

Modern OS from Windows 7 onwards will disable disk cache and you will not have performance gain on using a RAMDisk.

Besides, the wearing from disk read and write will not have a significant impact to your SSD.

https://www.howtogeek.com/256859/dont-waste-time-optimizing-your-ssd-windows-knows-what-its-doing/

I have changed the HDD to SSD for a number of desktop PC for more than 18 months and they are still running to top speed like Day 1.

Before I changed to SSD, I did use RAMDisk to make Windows 7 ran faster by moving all cached and temporary files to the RAMDisk and my experience shows that the article in the link above is correct.

Besides, unless you are staying with 32 bit MS Windows, you will not have spare RAM for RAMDisk and it is better to let the OS to handle memory management.

I found that on my Windows 10 64 bit machine with a 256gb boot SSD (1tb data drive HDD 7200rpm), RAMDisk made a huge difference.  I found the same on my brand new laptop (Lenovo Yoga) with SSD.  I even bought the software.

I had a somewhat similar situation. I built my computer, ordered parts off Newegg. Included was a nice graphics card, my first one. I kept fiddling with the monitor wondering why it wasn't displaying. After awhile, I realized the monitor was hooked to the mother board, instead it needed to be hooked to the new graphics card. lesson learned.

A clone is a duplicate copy. Sheep have been cloned and maybe someday even people will be cloned, but disk cloning (performed by the hard drive cloning software) is a vital tool used to manage and protect data. Let’s look at what hard drive cloning software can do, starting with the basics.

I use more than 1 computer in my office for various reasons. Multiple keyboards and mice take up more than just extra space, they make working a little more complicated. Using one mouse and keyboard for all of my computers makes life easier. This combined with automation s/w makes my work a breeze.

Marked as Good article, nice to have all the vendor information in one place.

I would add that the IBM Flex System Manager (FSM) is now being phased out and being replaced with the Lenovo XClarity virtual appliance.  Any existing FSM customers are entitled to the XClarity upgrade.
