    For the last two or so years, our main editing server Whonnock has had no remote backup, meaning in the event of a natural disaster, it's very possible we could lose all of our data. Today, we fix that problem, rebuilding the most disgusting server we've ever owned into a remote backup solution.

    3. Cat Teenager

    7. Edgar Rojas

    8. Elias Epic Win

      The real timebomb in that server is the OCZ ssd 👀

    9. Jesse

      this video makes me want to sneeze

    10. Will Wu

      "only" 1 gig connection ...

    20. ClyFi

      I thought you were totally drunk. Then I noticed the speed was set to .75

    21. That Dreadhead

      5:32 we can’t suck we have to blow what ?????

    22. Carsten Langbo

      Being salty on construction workers because they tried and failed when it could have been avoided if somebody had used their brain ... That is just to cheap..

    23. R R

      with so much groaning going on, i was forced to lower down the volume..

    25. DannoHung

      Those corded dusters are amazing. I’ve had one for a while. But Linus should’ve actually been wearing a n95 with that kinda dust. Don’t breathe that shit.

    26. Caden

      "we cant suck we have to blow"

      “Pretty slow because Gigabit” well damn that’s not even an option in my area the fastest is 100 megabit

    29. Moreen Packard

      QUESTIONS: What is the small dust blower (Brand, Availability ) ??

    30. Groove Gamer

      10:05 oh... hi

    31. Northern Leigonare

      So that rotting structure is Linus's remote backup site? I can see why he didnt tell us until now. It would probably fall down in the same hypothetical earthquake that LTT HQ would fall from.

    32. FoamyButter

      Linus sister : mummy Linus is playing with trash again

    33. no1bandfan

      "You at least have your LiveStrong bracelet on?" HAHA, suck it Verge!!!

    34. Lego Mini Movie Productions

      Linus: We have used all of our favors from server manufacturers Also Linus: Hmm, dont we have like 100 16TB drives left and enough server parts to built like an entire 42U rack full of servers?

    35. Death Master

      Guys, did you ever see some servers running up for 5+ years(24/7/365) without regular cleaning in a dusty room?

    36. XiLeNcE

      I got an Asthma attack just by watching this video

    37. Robin Binder

      * makes offsite backup * * puts said offsite backup next to river * ~insert darth vader NOOOOOOOOOOUUU scream~

    39. MrXperx

      Why not use AWS Glacier or AWS Glacier Deep Archive. Cloud services are way more reliable than personal hardware.

    41. Kryptic

      That the same girl from that pc build giveaway, sounds like her smartassyness haha

    42. Harry

      'I'm wearing a mask and still cough.' Show just how effective those things are

    43. Mourya

      The live strong bracelet never dies

    44. ImNothing!! //use cheats everyday

      Bet the mask hes wearing was a bra that was cut and turned into a mask.

    45. Justin Kirschenman

      @0:40 And people still think they will protect against viruses. Dust is much larger than the aerosolized participates the virus rides on.

    46. ajdrig

      5:50 what tool is this they're using? EDIT: I found it, It's the DataVac model ED500P.

    47. Seth

      The way the mask moves when Jake talks makes him look like Leelas father from futurama with the sideways mouth.

    48. Chase Gurganious

      If Linus was as funny as he thought it was, and goddddd that fat kids laugh is unbearable.

    49. JrP

      can someone explain to me what is "server" for?

    50. Benjamin Aviation

      10:06 someone is looking at you

    54. Garrett K

      Dirty. Filthy. Nasty. Linus, your server is nasty.

    55. PhazonXL Productions

      Wtf? Those masks won't do anything for dust. What were they thinking?

    56. peter blazej

      It is painful

    57. Andrew Kondrashov

      Разбираешь, пылесосишь, протираешь спиртом и собираешь обратно.

    58. Ducky Do

      "gigabit is slow" we barely have gigabit in australia ;-;

    59. fpsfreak79

      more madison

    60. Taras Zakharchenko

      That "disgusting" server, is not nearly as disgusting as it can be.

    61. Kitchen Appliance

      did they start applying some sharpness filter or change cameras? looks different

    62. Dan McGuire

      That Vertex 2 tho. You know something's old when you see OCZ.

    63. WOBBMIKE

      WHERE DID ANTHONY GO?!?!?!?!?111

      Someone Please Help Me!! 😭😭😭😭 I was playing Valorant on my Asus ROG Zephyrs GA502 , suddenly it started BIOS update , then I left the room(cause the update was taking time) , then I came back after 15 minutes , but the screen was black (the screen was not black while the update) , then I left my laptop as it is for another 15-20 minutes , but still the screen was black , then I 'Force Power Off' the laptop (by holding Power Button) and then tried to turn it on again , I pressed the power button , the keyboard backlight turned on , fans turned on , but nothing on screen , not even the Asus logo that appears whenever I start the laptop, the screen was totally black , I waited for another 10min. , Still black screen , from then , whenever I start the laptop, the screen is still black. (I forgot to mention that Charging Cable was connected while the BIOS update) (Means laptop was charging while this whole thing happened) So someone please help me with this issue. I AM having a heart attack since the day it happened ( its been over a week now 😭)

    68. Aizoku

      I just don’t understand why anyone needs this much storage tho? I get having multiple projects and saves but why keep stuff for years tho?


      You should've used Anhydrous Isopropyl alcohol.

    70. Black Reaper

    74. k1ll3runa

      Men from the Dark ages: I will bathe in the blood of my enemies. Men in 2021 :*touched dust* ewwwwww aaahhhh

    75. Matthew Tireman

    84. John Thimakis

      "OMG DUST EWWWWW"! Sometimes you act so gay Linus.

    85. SleepDeprived

      The more chaos the better the video

    86. Ethan Bondick

      The salty wing ontogenically describe because appeal ordinarily crash down a unarmed jasmine. salty, wacky engineering

    87. self_checkout

      this is literally my pc 2 days after cleaning it

    88. awesomedudeme.

      I could taste the dust from here...

    89. pedro andrade

      Should've watched TechYES videos to elevate your cleaning game ^^

    90. Roy Boersema

      Oversharpened a bit much?

    91. Dylan Bob

      3.9GB/s internally... NICE

    92. Wojciech Mikula

      You haven't seen dirty computer.

    93. Seamus Hennessy

      Jake & Linus make a slick combo.

    94. Chrizziking1

      Jake and Linus are an Amazing combo.

    95. Geoff Seeley

      Should have set up ZFS and used zfs snapshot, send and receive.

    96. Dimi Kap

      15:44: It's pretty slow cause It's Gigabit.😢

    97. Arima Kousei

      I dont really understand the geeky stuff but I enjoy your videos

    98. t.s.

      lots of servers... piff... useless.

    99. Witte Blich

      Hehe. I once saw a server that had been in a rack for 10+ years, running non-stop. Sun's UltraSPARC II servers were miraculous... So, when we opened the case, I saw a bricket (literally) of compressed dust between the air intake and the radiator assembly. It was so tight we could shake ot away in one piece.
