Part of this "created by AI" is probably bullshit, but...
Damn that was one of the best trailers I've ever seen. Not too long, didn't give too much info. Made me REALLY want to see the movie.
And then they decide to ruin it by showing more, and my excitement just instantly deflates.
It appears Windows 7 lose about 1% per month consistently August through November.
At this rate, it'll be gone in only about 5 years and 4 months. Impressive showing. People must really love Windows 10.
Now even Microsoft has jumped on the constant Star Wars tie-ins... Seriously...
This "controversy" paints a pretty clear picture of who is either clickbaiting and/or rabid SJWs and who is rational. Sadly, there seems to be far more of the first group. Well, it's also about Apple and therefore apparently by default worthy of a headline, no matter how asinine.
So... For $225, you get a GIF-quality instagramified digital image of Han Solo with fake creases and completely artificial scarcity. I understand collecting, but here you might as well collect (free) screenshots people have posted of their cards. What is the difference between having the...
For the same price as the Dell, you can assemble your own system with additional flexibility.
Something like the Antec 300 natively holds 6 hard drives, with room for 3 more in the optical drive bays, if needed.
You trade off some size for a huge gain in flexibility.
I totally agree. My anecdote proves nothing. The point I was trying to make was that buying optical media and hoping it will work in ten years is a gamble. One will have to test the discs regularly to check data integrity. If the backup requires 120 BR discs (3TB/25GB) that is (IMO) extremely...
150+160=310 on 250GB drives? Eh?
That would be a 500GB partition. It should be doable, if wonky and less than ingenious, but I have to ask what you do that makes you want 0+1 for the OS. The effect of RAID 0 in a desktop environment is near zero. Buy more memory or a SSD instead. Follow the...
I've thought about this subject as well.
Years ago, I made a backup to ~100 CDs. Needing the data about a year later, Brand A worked perfectly while Brand B had serious issues with the outer ~20% of the disc. while my archival conditions are hardly perfect, they were stored out of the sun, etc...
You are correct about the RAID levels.
I'd go with one of the 'powerful' ones, but replace the case with a normal ATX case. The Antec 300 is a great case, if not the cheapest. £50 from your chosen store, saving you £36 while accepting 6 hard drives and having 3 ODD slots.
I ordered the SASUC8I and got the equivalent LSI version (forget the name) and it works flawlessly. The good thing about this card is that it by default works like a "dumb" SATA controller, so that the drives are readily available in solaris.
IMHO 10TB is still way above and beyond what normal people have and could be a pretty serious system. Maybe turn it up to 15.
8 spindles in the array seems like a good requirement. 9 drives requires a fairly serious case as well, although it can fit in some desktops, and its more than desktop...
#2 will be for backing up #1? That's what I'd do.
Just go with RAID6. That's 18TB...
Yes. It's perfectly fine.
No. Storage drives should only contain the array. Nothing else. Just do a RAID1 of 2.5" drives. You only need to hit the system drive at boot, making its speed nearly irrelevant...
WinXP => No TRIM => Performance goes down the drain after 4 fills.
Sandforce-based drives might be a better choice, but I have no experience with them.
Get Windows 7, OS X or something. AFAIK there is nothing else you can do.
Yup. Wake Mac from sleep, everything seems fine, but it quickly becomes apparent that something is horribly wrong. Unable to save anything. Cannot reboot, have to force power off. The drive now thinks it is 8MB...
(one 160Gig and one 80Gig, both G2s, one in a Mac Pro (early 2008), one in an...
No and no. Although I've had two out of four G2s die in my Macs. I was most likely just unlucky.
It seems to me that TRIM is not necessary on OS X. I benchmarked an 80gig G2 and after filling it 10 times with a good mix of data under OS X, I found no slowdown at all. Comparably, under Windows 7...
Page 12 and 13 has the specs for mSATA. 52 pins, so clearly something quite different from Apples 18-pin implementation... :/
Now I feel bad for leading you astray ;)
Sounds like you want to manually manage the moving of files.
Just get an external drive and manually move over your files with Windows Explorer.
I don't see how backup software will be anything but a hindrance to you, but maybe I am misunderstanding and you want to move all JPGs within a certain...
I believe the above may do the trick. Both Anand and iFixit calls it mSATA.
But presumably he will get another MacBook Air, which you could also use to perform...
I'm not surprised. To me, it has seemed that OCZ has a different approach to SSD manufacturing than I would prefer. This goes back to the indilinx drives and became especially apparent with the usage of pre-production Sandforce chips/firmware.
Intel and others have had their fair share of...

For anyone contemplating running OpenSolaris, I recommend the LSI SAS3081E-R (aka Intel SASUC8i)
Unlike some other controllers, it is transparent to the OS by default. Other cards often require you to create a RAID0-array for each drive before they are advertised to the OS.
BTW., steer clear...
In the old days, this would be due to a bad cable or loose VGA connector.
If it happens with both DVI ports, I'd be inclined to believe it's the screen or cable. You should test it on another computer like Haste266 says.
The issue here is that SSDs may include more storage than is advertised on the box. This helps longevity when re-writing a few files many times on a nearly-full drive. Unfortunately, it also means that you can't be sure it's completely erased after a single pass... But how many passes is...
SATA is more than enough.
Just make sure you don't skimp on RAM, that way the database server chan store a large chunk (or all of it) in memory.
(When I say "don't skimp" I mean something like 4GB, no need to go overboard with 8 or 16.)
1x USB Hub
2x Monitors (USB Hubs)
1x Mouse (wireless)
1x TV Tuner
2x iPod Dock
1x FireWire Hub
1x Recording interface
1x Video camera
(yeah, it's not USB, but it might as well be)
Wait... Are you mad at the manufacturer because you got a part that failed prematurely, or are you mad at yourself/your parents for the fact that your are their IT support guy?
I understand that you're not very happy, but it doesn't seem like WD's error. Hardware fails, this was going to happen...
Use wdtler.exe: http://zacuke.com/index.php/2009/05/western-digital-wdtlerzip/
There's no way to tell other than try to change it, unfortunately.
It seems to me that WD started to disable the TLER setting within the last 3 months, maybe 6.
