I've got a site at work that is loading slow from Asia, and corporate wants it fixed.  Anyone have any suggestions?  It's not running HTTPS at all if that helps.

Replacing an old FreeBSD install with a Gentoo one.  Kinda sad to lose my last BSD install, but I'm glad to get to use Gentoo more at work, too.

Booted a machine I got a few weeks ago to the bios to change some things and was confronted with this.

Amazing, it's about time someone moved on beyond the mainframe style menus we have been suffering through for decades. Nice job Intel, keep it up!

Well, poop.  Looks like our only FreeBSD install is gonna go away.  Had an HDD crash on me, and my diagnosis skills are nil compared to Linux.
