Wanted – 80tb (3-8tb) Hard drives + AMD 7970 / 7990 / R9 / RX series

Hi all,

I want to update my hard drive collection, looking for potentially 10x8tb or similar quantity in smaller capacity drives.

I’m also looking to move to quadfire as I’ve recently bought new 4k monitors.

Also – could do with a new router. Something AC2300 or above – or even a mesh setup like Netgear Orbi / Google Wifi etc.

Let me know!

Edit to add some potential trades I can offer:

Old AMD desktop (3-core, 8gb RAM, no GPU in a generic case with 500W PSU)
Various laptop hard drives in 60-250gb region – can scan as and when needed

Location: London / Farnborough

From bitcoin to deprecated Java, a look at 2017’s top opinions

It’s always interesting looking back on the various topics that arose throughout the previous year in the world of Java and technology. TheServerSide typically likes to stick with fairly neutral feature articles, news pieces, tips and tutorials, but every once in a while a subject or an issue arises that calls for a bit of an opinion to be offered. Here’s a look at ten of the most popular opinion pieces for 2017 — based on comments — ranging from cleaning up deprecated Java methods in the Java SE API to the problems with the bitcoin blockchain.

10. The ignominy of working at Uber

It seems that the various issues surrounding Uber and other ride-sharing programs never once abated throughout 2017. But specifically of interest to developers were the unethical practices of creating applications such as Greyball, which geofenced law enforcement agencies, not to mention the allegations by former employee Keala Lusk regarding sexual harassment in the workplace. It all begs the question, if you had been a developer at Uber, would you include that fact on your professional resume? I certainly wouldn’t.

9. Diversity versus parity

Former Google employee James Damore raised a number of eyebrows with his blog post “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber,” which criticized the search engine’s approach to diversity and inclusion. Of course, what exactly do people mean when they talk about diversity and inclusion? Is the goal really diversity or is the actual goal simply gender and ethnic parity? There’s a big difference between the two concepts.

8. Process and methods

It’s not wise to speak unkindly about Agile and DevOps, the two hottest methodologies and software development processes around today. But these tall poppies were growing a little high, and someone just needed to address the fact that, as effective as these two approaches are, they aren’t magical unicorns, and they won’t fix every problem a software development team will encounter.

7. Deprecated Java code

Sometimes a discussion on a boring topic such as deprecated Java methods sings to the hearts of the software developers. A snide little rant about using deprecated Java methods garnered far more social media shares than one would have expected.

6. Cloud-native Java

Perhaps the biggest trend in the world of Java development was the move to cloud-native Java architectures. But sometimes the push to re-architect the entire data center was a little over enthusiastic and organizations with more than sufficient infrastructures were made to feel there was a problem with systems that are working just fine. Far too often, fear mongering was driving the microservices and containers trends.

5. The 12-Factor app

How do you develop cloud-native Java applications? Some suggest the mantra of the 12-Factor app is the right place to start. I’d disagree, as I noted in this article.

4. Java EE APIs

I like JavaServer Faces and I like JSR-371, the new Model-View-Controller (MVC 1.0) framework for developing user interfaces. But I’ve never liked the fact that UI frameworks get included in the Java EE specification. They shouldn’t be. They should stand alone.

3. Cloud failures

The Amazon outage was big news in February. But the story was bigger than the simple fact that an AWS availability zone temporarily went down. It was about how that Amazon outage impacted the faith and trust clients have in their cloud computing vendors.

2. Explaining away the Amazon outage

Amazon explained away its zone outage as simple data input error. But when an entire availability zone goes down, there’s more going on than simply a user hitting the wrong key on the keyboard.

1. Bitcoin and blockchains

2017 will be remembered as they year bitcoin broke the $10,000 barrier. But just how fundamentally sound is the blockchain technology that underlies the cryptocurrency? This article on the issues surrounding bitcoin and blockchain technology not only attracted a large number of eyeballs, but it generated an equally large number of comments and shares on various social media sites.

2017 provided plenty of fodder for an opinionated take on both current and ongoing events that pervaded the software development industry. There is no doubt that 2018 will be equally as interesting, although it’ll be hard to top a year that included deprecated Java methods with DevOps unicorns prancing around.

For Sale – Macbook Pro Retina 13, 2015, i5, 8GB, 128GB

I’m possibly looking to switch to a Surface Pro for work, but just weighing up boot camp versus a Windows 10 device.

I can post full pictures once I’m home tonight.

It’s the 2015 model, Core i5, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD. It’s running High Sierra and had 72 battery cycles (around 97% of full design capacity on last check).

It’s all boxed, in excellent condition. It was bought from John Lewis as a Xmas present in 2015, I’m not sure on warranty status.

Possibly open for trades (either Surface Pro or Surface Book), but really just testing the water.

Price and currency: 700
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: BT or Paypal
Location: Swindon
Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

Wanted – Budget Desktop for Uni £200

I’m looking to get something cheap for uni. But, budget-wise, I’m really limited. £150-£200 is probably all I can spend. Based in London, if that helps.

I would also be really interested in any accessories (monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc.). Thought I’d ask in case anyone had something lying around

Thanks again!
