    I was on hold for 30 mins then spoke to bavani. Took my cc over the phone and sent an email during which I replied to with my address. Said I would get a confirmation email later.

    Can't wait.

    She sent me the email first and asked again if I had received it before she hung up, like she was waiting. I did have to read my cc to her a number of times due to errors.

    Hope it works out for you, check pm.

    Would feel too sorry - he's sold 2 - I did notice he's down to $400 each though.

    in other news, is there much of a downside from running the NAS inside ESXi?

    assuming you give it enough resources, my box is getting 8G ram and SSD.

    yeah he sold those 2 before 400 drop, and they could have been best offers too...

    just call anyone in their home dept, or if you have a company name your shipping to then choose the business line.
    the promos offered for either, and one or the other you'll get through, seems all the staff know about the promo now :D

    I'm having trouble getting decent speeds copying files to WHS2011 running on ESXI. Set up Jumbo Frames last night which requires use of CLI onto the ESXI hypervisor, but not sure if I have done it properly so more to do tonight.

    Cheers for that, the bloke I just spoke with said they have been getting hammered with orders for these since yesterday.
