Dell PowerEdge 1950 III Drivers and Firmware Updates (2013)

I recently set up two new Dell PowerEdge 1950 III servers. One for Weblogs.us (free blog hosting) and one for Branson’s Nantucket (a lakefront resort in Branson). Dell makes very nice servers but their support pages can be a bit confusing. Therefore, here are the latest updates/drivers for the PowerEdge 1950 III, as of July 2013: Latest Dell PERC 6/i Integrated Update, v.6.3.1-0003, A14http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/driverdetails?driverid=W83M2Fixes: 1.

New video card for 4K UHD and Starcraft 2 SC2 HotS

Every four years or so I invest in a new video card. The latest edition, ordered today, is the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB card. I actually meant to order a BOOST edition but somewhat mistakenly ordered the ‘OC’ edition. 🙁 However, I like the overall features of the card and if it performs well enough I will keep it. 🙂 Otherwise, I may return it and look at a GTX 760.

WordPress comment pagination and 301 redirects

I recently enabled paginated comments on my WordPress blog. Later I decided to disable pagination and just go for the regular ol’ a single comments listing on each post (regardless of how many comments there are).

Here is the example: http://www.jdhodges.com/blog/dreamweaver-document-too-large-copy-past/comment-page-2/ auto redirects to http://www.jdhodges.com/blog/dreamweaver-document-too-large-copy-past/

Determine if TRIM is supported and enabled on an SSD!

Today I was installing a Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD in a new server. Everything went smoothly, but I wanted to make sure that TRIM was actually working. This turned out to be slightly trickier than one might imagine! 😉 First Samsung’s SSD Magician Tool was of no use. CrystalDiskInfo reported that my SSD supported TRIM (which I already knew) but really gave no indication that Windows 7 and the SSD were working in concert to accomplish TRIMming. Nothing really
