Probably a bit of that and a bit of asking for a bit too much stuff recently. I remember a different storage server video he did a few months ago where he asked Seagate for a bunch of drives, they sent him drives rated for at most 5 per chassis, then he told them it was for a huge NAS and they sent him drives rated for like 12 per chassis and he had to go back to them again to clarify he was putting all like 40 drives he was asking them for into the same chassis before they sent him drives certified for that type of duty. For some reason Seagate didn't ask him to send the other drives back (that's almost certainly where the initial Ironwolf drives he was going to use in this video came from) but I got the impression from the video that Seagate was done with sending him drives for a while.

He did a passing update on the state of all those drives he got in a few videos he did after that build. Basically Seagate said he could keep them, but he had to use them in a project/projects, otherwise he had to return them. If I remember right he had a deadline too.

My guess as to why they re-used that old server is that he's done a few new storage setups recently, and they didn't want to send him a new rack-mount server. I believe the stuff he has been getting is essentially one-off's and/or pre-production stuff, so once he runs through that, then he has to pay.

I'd also hypothesize that one issue with getting all-new sponsored kit is that it's not a glamour project. Like, if they hadn't spent 15 minutes cleaning some dust, what would the video even have been about? It's not their production server so they can't throw around amazing stats about real-time video editing over the network etc. If someone is sending you thousands of dollars worth of free stuff, they want it to be some amount of advertising.


And it's not like a data dump remote backup has any major performance needs, an old server works fine.

You guys aren't going to believe this, but that guy is our games teacher.


Yeah, there's nothing wrong with using an old server for this purpose, it's just a bit strange that he went out of his way to call out that he wasn't using brand new hardware like he normally does with server builds.

I'm just watching some AIO cooled graphics card video of him, because of reasons unknown to me, and probably due to earlier talk, I'm noticing some newish flab going on.

Maybe his partner finally got fed up of having to explain his Asian minstrel act to their family and friends.

He's battled weight problems all his life, which he's talked about. He mentioned not being able to get to a gym due to covid, and the blah's that have come with the lockdowns (not negative, more the "oh god I'm bored").

It's an incredible effort to lose the amount of weight he has and a daily fight to keep it from returning.

This rules and is a sneaky way for linus to push his merch as really high quality. I actually would wear the grey sweatshirt with the stealth pocket if it had 0 LTT branding.

Speaking from experience, yes! Not eating for like 4 days will get you down a bit.

Though not being able to breathe properly for a while after will cause it to come back pretty quickly

I always regain my appetite with a force after getting sick. :/ I didn't have that loss of taste effect of "whatever" I had a year ago.

"Time to make more Asian minstrel act videos" - Kyle at his house.

Man, I actually really used to enjoy Kyle's content (minus the Lyle poo poo which was dumb as hell), but now it seems like his new channel is doubling down on the Lyle stuff so I'm getting ready to click that unsubscribe button.

If they announced an incoming swarm of copperhead snakes I might do a cursory search online about what to do to prepare for it, especially if I was a self proclaimed “prepper”, that’s just me though 🤷🏼‍♂️

I don't think 8bit guy has proclaimed prepperhood, at least not to any notable degree. Best I can tell he's just a gun nut.

E:vvv ok, didn't watch that video.

Pretty sure he said in that video that he's a bit of a prepper.
