It seems like you are trying to explain why admin is wrong about space issues. Here is my problem with that. Admin has experience both coding and working with server space and memory issues first hand with a large website with thousands of members. You do not. I trust him a bit more, even if he isn't always right. Also, you sounded pretentious and arrogant, which compiled by the fact that you are wrong makes this so much worse.
#115 - fragman (03/07/2016) [-]
Sure, trust someone because of their status rather than the quality of the statement/argument. makes sense.

Of course, my tone was (and still is) rrogant but that doesn't make me wrong, check the source I provided in #114. If you chose to believe arguments from authority, you might as well pick a real authority on the topic.

you are completely wrong, every single way

ovh is the biggest host is the world pretty much
No1 hosting provider in Europe
No3 hosting provider in the world (Netcraft, Jan. 14)

that's right, one of the largest hosts or the largest host to ever exists uses raid 10 just like i said

that's a web host
that hosts web sites

no just no, you are completely wrong and you get thumbed up because what you posted "sounds" smart

if i facepalmed any harder, i'd die


example srever setup, ovh used to be 3x3tb raid


ovh NAS server which is raid 10
>build storage clusters in a RAID 1/0
that is exactly what it this is

but none of this matters because imgur uses cloud hosting which is way more expensive
#114 - fragman (03/07/2016) [-]
What you are talking about is a simple server setup you twerp.
Obviously you're running RAID 10 on a server because RAID5/6 performance sucks ass in comparison. But larger sites, especially cloud service providers split their front end servers (which require performance) from storage clusters (which don't need near as much).

You aren't wrong because server RAID best practices differ from what you mention (those are correct), you are wrong in assuming that anyone building an infrastructure for a site of that size with that purpose would be dumb enough to store the content on the same server.

Just because you found some idiot hoster that does it this way doesn't mean a proper provider will too.
Maybe you should instead read up on that using better sources such as proper storage providers. For example:

On page 13 under "RAID level" they state pretty much what I said above. Now if you actually read it and turn your brain on instead of trying to defend your original statement, you'll see that storing images for a site like imgur (or FJ for that matter) clearly falls under read-biased workloads, maybe general purpose but obviously not heavy transactional with high (greater than 25 percent) random write component which would be for a frontend or database cluster.

Holy shit, your argument from authority seems to work for some reason even though having worked in the hosting field for a couple of years I'm pretty sure you are just fucking wrong.

"biggest host in the world", yet not a single reputable company with internet focus among their customer references. legit as fuck.

since you still fail to see the fucking difference between a standardized dedicated server for running a small/medium sized website and the way you build an infrastructure to run a goddamn image hosting platform, you are obviously completely lost in your own personal circlejerk of semiknowledge. therefore further discussion is meaningless as you'll just keep spouting nonsense about how great your hosting provider is without even trying to address the EMC whitepaper I've linked above.

gg, keep throwing away diskspace for absolutely nothing

ps, imgur used edgecast cdn for the majority of it's life, they didn't build shit

amazon aws same thing, which reddit uses, same thing

skimmed your paper, raid 6 and obsolete or will be soon
raid 5 is very obsolete

your knowledge is from
the 1990s

everything he said is completely wrong lol

people thumb because it sounds smart, it's so dumb

Yeah, I do agree. The way its currently being handled is inefficient in itself.

I'd like to see more being looked into with carbon sequestration and nuclear (fusion preferably) Or even Thorium reactors. I believe we should also be looking at ways to adapt to a changing climate because it will become survival of the fittest. Humanity is going to need to adapt sooner rather than later now because of our pollution, we need to start making way more accurate predictions in terms of the changing climate and developing ways to combat those.

I do think pushing boundaries in solar/wind etc aren't a complete waste of time though, they will have other applications. Solar in my city is very big in residential areas and has worked very effectively, as is geothermal. Financial gain needs to be set up as a motivator for the general population aswell though.

idk man... Have the nation be run by someone who was BOUGHT by a bunch of companies.... or have it run by the COMPANY ITSELF? Trump will be self serving. Clinton will too, of course, but at least there are degrees of separation between the companies and the office. Trump being president will be zero degrees of separation. Might he be able to stand uncorrupted? probably not

I want to disagree with you based solely on the fact that I don't think America should give a shit about what Europe thinks....but in this case you are right.

Well sure you shouldn't give a fuck.
Just like most Europeans don't care which moron gets to run your country since it doesn't really affect us. But I think Sargon (as another European shitlord commenting on your election) said it best when it comes to this issue:

Its just about respecting the trans community. They identify as girl even though assigned sex is male. Gender=/=Sex, I really hope you don't call someone who identifies as a woman a "he". Kind of shitty.

I personally have a fucking issue with treating mental disorders with respect while we treat others with criminalization or at least exclusion no matter if the person has done anything illegal. (Just scroll through the list: apps.who.int/classifications/icd10/browse/2016/en#/F60-F69 )

I don't care if Bruce wants to be Caitlyn or whoever. But until F64.0 is deleted from the IDC-10 database I see no reason to encourage such bullshit because encouraging an action/way of life that we at the same time call a mental disorder and therefore in some countries even have state funded treatment available... that just doesn't compute.

Also, I don't respect the trans community, just like I don't respect the gay community, the black community or the funnyjunk community. I respect individual people based on what they do. But I know, this is transphobic, homophobic, racist, sexist and being an oppressive shitlord.
