1/12    Good news everyone! You get to enjoy another month of instability, since
        the manufacturer dropped the ball and the case+power for the server we
        ordered on 12/8 has been delayed to 2/16! Yay! --t
        \_ where did you order this?
        \_ This is why you buy from HP or Dell and not some White Box POS.
           It used to not be worth the premium to pay for a name brand,
           but these days the big makers are competitive. I always built
           my PCs from scratch, but I haven't built a PC in years.
        \_ Can you cancel that order?  It doesn't sound like a good deal.
        \_ Why don't you post the specs (configuration, price, and source)?
           Perhaps someone on the motd can point you to a better deal from
           a vendor that can actually deliver.

        seems like I get these every 6 months or so from HP.  Do all drives
         have these kind of issues and I only see the ones from HP because
         they are diligent about reporting/fixing these issues?  Or do they
         suck?   (It's not actually their drives so...)  Also, do I really
         need to bring down my production infrastructure and fix all this

        \_ Not good for hardware to power it up and down all the time. I
           always leave all my computers on all the time, except for
           laptops which I allow to sleep (but still be powered).
           \_ How is this the case for desktops but not laptops?  I don't see
