how to efficiently run your home file server when you're off-grid and solar-powered:

"now I have 16 terabytes of network attached storage, that uses no power at all when it's not in use, and automatically spins up on demand"

@headachebooth Time to separate the bezel from the rest of the lid (some laptops have it screwed in, some have it taped and/or clipped on), and see what the actual damage is.

Note that once things start coming apart, the rest gets stressed a lot more, so getting it taken apart and inspecting where it's failing now will prevent more damage from happening.

That said, you might be to the point of needing a new lid assembly already from what you've described...

@thurloat Try searching for MX1A-G1NN (for plate mount) or MX1A-G1NW (for PCB mount), that'll find you some.

Looks like WASD has MX1A-G1NN for US$1, G1NW for US$1.50/ea.

The other option is... how do you feel about clones? AFAIK those are at least easier to get...

@mew It ultimately boils down to resistance (and the resultant heating effects).

Basically, each interconnect adds a little bit of resistance, and therefore heating... but also, additional length adds resistance and therefore heating.

Longer cords of a given amp rating are thicker gauge wire to offset the added resistance of longer length (by using lower resistance wire).

@thomasfuchs @_xhr_ @codesections @kurtm @emsenn @SuperFloppies Ad-driven, sure, but they had static 468x60 GIFs that were maybe animated, and any analytics were server-side, not the invasive and resource-intensive client-side stuff that's done now.
