Just a heads up, for over 10 years i have stored my online images and files on geocities then when they shut down I used godaddy.

I have my lab and office networked through a Linksys WRT1900ac v1.0 (has cooling fan)
My router is connected to the school's Ethernet and 400+ mb/s up/down is possible

Do not expect fuzzy socks or giant sized divisions...

Under the extract is a bag of...

RO system diagnosis
