The Best $90 Spent For My Home-Made Server Room

Earlier today I wrote about how reusing the heat from the 60+ system Linux benchmarking server room can heat a home in the winter. The free heat is nice, but it came with a bit of noise; however, thanks to purchasing one product for less than $100 USD the noise level has been significantly reduced.

Running Linux Benchmarks Constantly Is Enough To Heat A Home In The Winter

Earlier this month I wrote about using a Tjernlund 530CFM fan for ventilation of the warm air from the basement computer/server room for Linux benchmarking into my office and the rest of the house for warm air in the winter. After some tweaks last week, I'm quite content with the design and is sufficiently heating the rest of the house so far this winter.

Software Updates For The NVIDIA Jetson TX1

Just under one week ago I wrote at length about the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 development board performance. It's a phenomenal ARM development board and quite powerful thanks to the Tegra X1 SoC with the Maxwell GPU and Cortex-A57 processor cores. My only gripes with the Jetson TX1 were around some issues with setting up the software as noted in the article, but it turns out there's already been some improvements in that front.
