mod6: I just noticed an error in my notes I sent out, I had listed in there $8600 as the price point for August, that's a fat-finger, it's really $8200.00 will send out a correction tomorrow probably, with some addtional notes.
BingoBoingo: ty ben_vulpes for your tenacity in chasing these stray drives
ben_vulpes: refund has gained another few hundred dollars, but not yet the balance of a new shipment
adlai: at the risk of sounding like a lightly-chipped (for the broken don't spin too good) record: i'd be glad to rent the new rockchip. i promise this time to think before i type, and not play the shitty music too loud.
ben_vulpes: hey mod6, refund has processed. i read in #t that you don't want two shipments in flight at the same time, right?
lobbesbot: ben_vulpes: Sent 3 days, 8 hours, and 34 minutes ago: <asciilifeform> plox to give mircea_popescu & asciilifeform a quote for getting 5 10TB mech disks of reasonable quality to BingoBoingostan
ben_vulpes: doing the rest of the statementwork now
ben_vulpes: mod6: i'm holding off on pulling the trigger on another batch of ssds, so i'm sitting on some 1500 USD of amazoncredit for pizarro
mod6: ben_vulpes: thanks for posting the July statement
mod6: <@ben_vulpes> hey mod6, refund has processed. i read in #t that you don't want two shipments in flight at the same time, right? << I basically meant from BingoBoingo.
mod6: I was thinking that once we have confirmation that we can actually receive these items in .uy, we'd go ahead and start ordering them back to back - but not before.
mod6: However, with asciilifeform and S.NSA, I think they want you to get a price quote together for 5 10Tb spinning disks and shipment to .uy.
mod6: So, go ahead and do that when you have a chance, and I think we'll try to do that.
mod6: (But meanwhile, we won't try to buy/ship any more SSDs until BingoBoingo's order is delivered.)
mod6: Let us know how it goes, and feel free to ask as many questions about the model or whatever that you may need while producing the quote.
BingoBoingo: Well, what are the 10TB options? We might as well pick our 4 favorite disks and stick to them (1. SSD 2. HDD 3. Rockchip USB 4. Rockchip SD)
BingoBoingo: All of them seem to be settled except for the mechanical
ben_vulpes: i can make a quote, but i'd prefer asciilifeform spec the hardware
ben_vulpes: can even run down several variants for cost comparison, i just have nfi in re which hardware doesn't suck
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: i'ma get back to you re subj. ( disks gotta work with raid , and my understanding is that some of the current cheapola, doesn't )
