I spend all day helping someone move their stuff out of a bedbug-INFESTED household, 4 hours away, get paid with a Dell R720, get home at 2:30 AM, and I just want to crawl into bed and cease existing until all my muscles are done being sore.

And my NAS's LCD screen is on... GREAT, my NAS kpanicked while I was away. Within a BTRFS op.

This is why I need that R720, to swap that in as hypervisor, and put on the (now unused) R710.

Hope my data's safe, at least md manages RAID,

Side note: if you ever need someone to tape a bunch of mylar sheeting to a cardboard box to build a bedbug heat-treat enclosure... well my fingers are nearly raw from ripping piece after piece of gorilla tape, but I'm now decently versed in "tape the thing onto the thing."

And mylar like that is so unwieldy and unable to behave that I know what I'll be naming my cat, if I ever get one.

LSI SAS HBA arrives today, that's part one.

The rest of the components are... still coming from china. If it wasn't for the fact that one of those components are the SAS cables then I'd be doing a test run today

@tek_dmn nightmare fuel! Remember to set your perc controller to JBOD.

@imnotafeline doesn't support it, as far as I've seen. I'd have to make each disk it's own RAID-0

Heck with that entirely. LSI9207, I/T mode.
Arrives tomorrow, actually
