j_vRomster: one thing i'm trying to grasp with ccache addition to the openjdk8 port - what if ccache is installed but it's usage is not desired in this case? i don't see an environment variable or such to control it's usage. something like: if [ -e '/usr/bin/ccache' ] && [ $PKGMK_CCACHE07:19
j_vif [ -e '/usr/bin/ccache' ] && [ $PKGMK_CCACHE = true ]; then ...07:20
j_vor maybe set the PKGMK_OPENJDK8 var at pkgmk invocation, such that:07:32
j_vif [ -e '/usr/bin/ccache' ] && [ "$PKGMK_OPENJDK8" = "--enable-ccache" ]; then ...07:33
j_vone that seems more interesting to me:07:44
j_vif echo "${PATH}" | grep -q 'ccache'; then ..07:45
frinnstmine is pretty default these days07:51
j_vfrinnst: did you mean you use ccache by default, or something else?07:53

joacimyeah was looking at the ones dustin has16:14
frinnst6tb ironwolf and wd red's16:14
joacim1800 for 6TB ironwolf drives16:15
joacimtho the regular price for that drive at komplett is about 200016:15
joacimso the price difference isnt huge16:15
joacimand i currently want a nice kvm switch16:15
frinnstdo you need any fancy features?16:16
joacimI could get one 4TB drive and use RAIDZ for my backup system. or add my current two 4TB drives to the array16:17
joacimi wont be able to backup everything then16:17
joacimno not really16:17
joacimi generally get NAS drives for my server tho16:17
frinnstvga/usb switches are common and can be found cheap even in my small town16:17
joacimoh thought you meant harddrives. yeah i would like one that supports displayport, and 4k monitors16:18
joacimseen some cheap ones (150-200 dollars) that support 4k 30 Hz16:19
joacimbut if I got a 4k monitor, I would want to run it at 60 Hz16:19
joacimI already have a very cheap USB switch, but switching that and the input on my monitor is a little annoying =)(16:20
frinnstI use mine for switching between hp microservers16:37
joacimi think the new ones comes with displayport too16:38
joacimi already have an older ATEN model for VGA switching tho16:39
joacimbut no currently used monitors that can handle VGA16:39

pedjaso, as kvm switches go, is this too expensive ?17:56
