I said I'd post about the PFSense router, so here it is. I've put together the hardware based on a lot of research. There were some hickups, but it ended up OK. I actually finished this almost two months ago, but hey, better late than never!

Specs:
  • MBD-X10SLL-F-O uATX Server Motherboard (LGA 1150)
  • Intel Celeron G1820T Dual-Core CPU (2C, 2T @2.4 GHz 35W TDP)
  • 8GB Kingston Unbuffered ECC DDR3 1600 RAM
  • SanDisk SSD PLUS 120GB MLC SSD
  • Intel 82573L Gigabit NIC (w/ riser)
  • Supermicro CSE-512L 200B Case w/ 200W Power Supply
  • Supermicro Passive LGA 1150 Heatsink

The reason I went with the Celeron and not the Intel Xeon E3 1220L v3, which has hyperthreading and a much lower TDP at around the same price, is that PFSense only recently added multi-threading support, so I believe I'll actually get better performance out of this higher-clocked chip. It's a little-known fact that all consumer Intel chips in the i3 line and bellow (Pentium, Celeron, Atom) support error-correcting memory, so there are no compatibility issues using this OEM consumer chip. Edit: I might actually be forced to get the Xeon a higher-clocked i3 after all due to OpenVPN adding support for Intel AES-NI hardware acceleration. I will take the opportunity to benchmark this, however, and post an update with the results.

You might also ask (rightly) why anyone would spend $500 on a router. Well, I have two main reasons: the first is that I am now using Ting's gigabit fiber, which you basically need a custom solution like this to take full advantage of, and the second being that I want to run an always-on VPN for privacy at the router level, which actually requires a fair amount of computational power at these speeds. There's other fancy stuff I can do too, like run a router-level firewall and (very importantly) an ad-blocker, but those are the main reasons. Also, if it wasn't clear why I had a second NIC, it's because PFSense requires this for separating the WAN and LAN.

Here are some pictures of the build:

And finally, I just picked up this military-grade portable server rack for my entire setup that I can just slap a shipping label on and send anywhere I want on eBay last week for cheap. I'm moving in two weeks, so it will definitely come in handy.

P.S. I probably would've romanized "Hochiduki" as "zuki" or "dzuki" because I think that would encourage the closest correct pronunciation in English readers (since づ isn't really a sound we have in English) but "du" probably is the most technically correct.

Oh, you're right. I was lazy and copped the official romanization, but it's bad so I changed it.

I'm personally really interested in seeing how they handle the foreign character Christiana Yamato (likely a returnee or half-Japanese woman given her name, but her listing "Japanese [language]" as a skill indicates she may not be fully bilingual), because I just took the 4th-Year Japanese Workplace course and I have thoughts™ about foreigners working in Japan. Given that New Game has been pretty realistic and grounded in terms of its depiction of the workplace (obvious comedic exaggerations aside; see the article linked a few posts above), I am optimistic.

I will likely return to this subject once the show starts airing, so keep an eye out for that if you are interested.

They also announced an advanced-screening of the first episode at an event on June 17th, where there will also be a live performance by forfolium, who are once again doing the show's OP. Not translating all of the details because I doubt any of you are going :P

Blue/Grey it is. Also looking at bringing back the "random tidbits" box, but that is going to take some time.
