timmmay: ...

What's the ballpark to create a system that would have temperature monitors in maybe 6 places? Not too bothered about general weather, just to figure out things like heating, cooling, and insulation. Probably more than I want to pay, just curious :)

Almost certainly way more than you want to pay!  If it's just 6 temperature monitors, I would probably use a Raspberry Pi or Arduino board, teamed up with the appropriate sensors.  Or if it's at a remote outdoor location, you could use an Analogue I/O module with RS-485 comms.

Heard about this product on a podcast:
StableBit Drive Scanner http://stablebit.com/Scanner

It will read all your HDD data, and ensure that it is still readable and writable - some datablocks are rarely read because they are not accessed that often. Read Once, Write Never ...





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Interesting product, but "Continuously scans all of your hard drives" doesn't sound ideal - doing it occasionally sounds good, but not constantly.

Edit - it does say "The file system check is flexible, it has its own re-check interval, and can be disabled globally or per-disk". So that's ok.

this.

i get frustrated enough when i head to bed for the night, just start settling in, and my indexing processes, reading a whole disk... that would go on for awhile.


while this would be a nice warning sign, imo it wouldnt be worth it..
