I never did get a good NAS thing going on a router. How well does that really work? I have a RT-N66W but have been considering an upgrade.

For a mining rig you'd have to see if the mainboard can support the graphics or what it would cost for a mod, and to upgrade the power or power adapters to support the graphics power consumption.
If you file host something like Plex or torrenting or run any home automation, security, etc., old machines are always good for that and pull the burden off of your main machine and can reduce energy cost if you put a lower power, higher efficiency psu/gfx in there.
Even just using it as NAS for your home can be good because it pulls the power draw and drive uptime from your main machine for files you don't access on the regular and then you're not paying for cloud storage.
That's pretty good news man--where'd you settle down? I moved to Boston a couple years back from Chicago to start a company and have bounced around here ever since.
I lived here last year and was lucky I moved because they had this during last week's storm:
Is that better? I turned my admin abuse up a level!
Yay not being dead yet!
Lame for losing domain names--that shit could have bought you a computer.
I managed to quit DotA cold turkey in Feb... got my life back just in time to start playing PUBG. Never did manage to get much into League.
Highly unlikely that the metal stud is load bearing (structural vs. used to hang drywall), so it probably won't help you here.
I wonder if you could offset the mount (black) to use the stud (brown) on the visible side of the TV, then use lumber (brown) to reach the other stud. Basically extending the wall mount. If you have a nice piece of aluminum or something you could make it pretty, but that part wouldn't necessarily be visible anyway.
CJ, I did look at that one, it is only 19.5" wide: http://www.amazon.com/MI-310B24-Articulating-32-60-inch-extended-suitable/product-reviews/B002CTP6JM/ref=cm_cr_dp_qt_hist_one?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0.
Wow, that's pretty damn annoying considering the title is all caps 24" studs. Good on you for catching it in the reviews.
...my dad cut a piece of wood and screwed it on top of the two studs and then placed the wall mount over it so it'd be secured.
This is actually a pretty great solution.
Otherwise there are some beefy options like this: http://www.amazon.com/MI-310B24-Articulating-32-60-inch-extended-suitable/dp/B002CTP6JM. Seems pretty legit and is way on sale, with articulation in horizontal and vertical direction, too.

I can be flexible after next Friday, I put votes in for that weekend but weekdays are fine after that.
