BingoBoingo: For a chassis either of these would work https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811219032 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147180
BingoBoingo: For a power supply this should be sufficient https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151130
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo do you have weight specs for either of these ?
phf: "A rack mount case should fit in a standard 19" EIA rack. They call it a 19" rack for a reason. It's not a 19 1/4" rack. The edge of this case's ears are 19 1/4", had to grind them to fit my rack. Also one EIA space..."
phf: first product
phf: 6kg
mircea_popescu: holy hell what
BingoBoingo: Holy shit
mircea_popescu: omfg.
mircea_popescu: Weight 6.4 kg/14 lb (NET) 9.1 kg/20 lb (GROSS)
BingoBoingo: Reading more
mircea_popescu: 6 POINT FOUR! NET!
phf: "It's worth mentioning that out of the 4 of these I've purchased so far, I got one for which the front USB ports are shorted and kill USB devices you plug into it. I lost two flash drives before realizing this was the problem. " second product, lulz. thought that's like random factor in cheap chinese shit
mircea_popescu: dude how fucking long have i been asleep whjat the fuck is this never in my life have i held a mount chassis this heavy ever.
mircea_popescu: so how do you feel about 76.8 kgs worth of chassis phf !
mircea_popescu: !~google snatch "heavy is good... heavy is reliable... if the dc is manned by idiots you can always hit them with it..."

mircea_popescu: (the power supply is like 3kgs, and that's not fucking avoidable)
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo im tell you i'm deeply nonplussed that i discover you can't actually rack anything in the dc you reported walked through after renting it and the very fucking day i'm supposed to start ordering parts.
mircea_popescu: wtf have you been doing till now!
shinohai: Build own! https://www.tnutz.com/
mircea_popescu: even if sane chassis were to be found, you can't find weightless power supplies (why exactly the rack provides 220V rather than directly rail is a question for another time ; and why this was't raised as a point at any previous time.) and there's simply no way i can have phf drag 50+ kgs of ~worthless parts across the oceans.

BingoBoingo: They have empty cabinets on casters ready to go. They have C13 plugs on the power distribution units. I failed to anticipate the hell that would be getting formed sheet metal here. I have apparently not been doing enough investigation into these basic questions. And the quote came late enough that I am probably not going to know until tomorrow if any of the local vendors that just now stated talking are going to keep doing it. I have
BingoBoingo: been trying to find and screen locals that might be useful for anything while staying somewhat sane.
BingoBoingo: And I am feeling right fucked about getting myself here.
BingoBoingo: In this dilemma.
BingoBoingo: In a country that is only avoiding starvation because the Brazilians like doing the Cannabis tourism thing.
BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> do they ? eat on own power, i mean. or does somebody fill their bowl with kibble, like in argentina << They afford to farm on Brazillian tourists money. How they have the ability to get from there to lifting the fork into their mouths I have increasingly less idea.
ben_vulpes: phf: what's involved in "transporting as cargo"?
phf: ben_vulpes: it's a standard cargo service, separate from flight engagement
phf: i.e. you pack it in a box (300kg max, 70kg each individual box), weigh and measure it, send them a quote. i don't know what the specific prices are
mircea_popescu: it's only available on some lines though, eg that aren't already overloaded with girly underpants.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo do you mean c14 ?
BingoBoingo: This gets under ~5 kg at 10.6 lbs https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147250 reviews aren't bad
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: c13
BingoBoingo: The plug that goes into the power supply is the same that goes into the PDU
BingoBoingo: Ah, c13
BingoBoingo: *c14
mircea_popescu: both exist ; so which is it ?
mircea_popescu: at any rate, the only possible moves here seem to be a) phf see if the airline is willing to take a ~100 kgs as cargo ; b) BingoBoingo DO THE RESEARCH tonight, as to b.1) EXACTLY, ~absolutely~ exactly what parts do you actually need and b.2) list of places you could conceivably get it at there, whatever shops. then tomorrow starting 8am you go check all of those. no words, be shown the physical item.
mircea_popescu: nfi how you'll manage to actually pay for anything locally, seeing how you very indolently allowed yourself to be painted into this corner where you have no bank account and can't sell bitcoins, but that's a problem to be tackled later.
mircea_popescu: and bear in fucking mind that the reason http://btcbase.org/log/2018-02-06#1781846 happened on the 6th at 2am rather than on the 9th at 2am is PRECISELY so that we have this conversation at the latest during the 6th, not during the fucking 9th.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-02-06 01:57 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo phf trinque diana_coman so i'm thinking of basically getting a dozen amd fx-8350s (because just 125w compared to say fx-9590s 220) racked in u2 mbs (say maybe ASRock 970M PRO3 ? i thinkl that fits in 2u neh ?) with 64 gb ram each and a coupla ssds ? any complaints/suggestions ?
mircea_popescu: i have no idea where this cavallier attitude is coming from, but the only thing it'll come to is tears, if the point's not well driven home by now.
mircea_popescu: leaving aside we don't even know what disks we're buying. eg, the rosewill chassis only usefully takes 3.5 inch ones.
BingoBoingo: The point is clear. Making a list. Taking both cameras and extra batteries on the search.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> leaving aside we don't even know what disks we're buying. eg, the rosewill chassis only usefully takes 3.5 inch ones. << 2.5 to 3.5 shims are on the list
mircea_popescu: (most ssds are 2.5". will you need adaptors ? THAT sort of thing)
BingoBoingo: Do we have a quantity on drives?
BingoBoingo: 1, 2, 3, or more per machine?
mircea_popescu: the idea was some 2 some 4, so 36 in total.
mircea_popescu is trying not to think of the obvious point that if he's buying by the dozen he's supposed to be getting fucking discounts.
shinohai: http://archive.is/QT5gc "How Socialism Ruined Latin America"
BingoBoingo: 36 it is
