Watch out! KILLER HP firmware update bricks ProLiant server mobos

TrixyB

I must have been lucky on my BL460c G5

I had an iLO failure on BL460c Blade last week which required a system board replacement.

After I changed the system board the HP firmware required an update. I used the SPP 2014.02 ISO which I had no problems with using the automatic upgrade options. Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5708S on the mezzanine cards. I now think that I was extremely lucky.

AMD avoids a red-ink-stained quarter for once, market says 'meh'

Anything to do with Bitcoin mining?

It could be that a lot of AMD kit was purchased to mine bitcoin before ASICS started shipping.

Performance of the 7970s are quite awesome! Gave up with mining a long time ago but kept 2 for crossfire gaming and dont need to turn the heating on upstairs anymore!

Re: More and better support for 64-bit ARM chips

I think it is the same Eadon. Look at the footer:

www.eadon.com is powered by linux, apache, php and mySql.

For your safety, security and pleasure, this site contains no Microsoft software whatsoever!

The site really hurts my eyes.

RM ties up IT school deal with Newham council

TrixyB
Thumb Down

Tom is right - RM are shocking

I agree with you Tom. I worked in a school as a network technician years ago with RM clients and an NT server, and it was shocking then. It's a shame to hear they have got no better, kids deserve more than sub-standard IT equipment from these goons.

Maybe it's time to coin a phrase that has been used a lot on El Reg lately.....

DO NOT WANT!
