8 Terabyte Storage Array

12 SATA 1TB Drives ($300 ea)
1 12-bay rack mountable SATA enclosure ($1200)
1 4x SAS Controller w/ Battery Backup ($1000)

Hooked up to a Solaris host with Raid-Z double parity ZFS, and two online spare drives for live failover and rebuilding.

= 8 terabyte of doubly redundant storage for ~$6000.

Biggest problem? How to back the sucker up. 20 tapes a night?

I'm going to be a busy boy. I have projects finally coming in from all the bids I was putting out over the last few months. Including UB and a couple other big names locally. Plus I met some cool guys, other Ruby programmers (thanks to Tony and Paul), so hopefully some collaboration will come of it.

24" Monitor

So, Dell has new, cheaper 24" widescreen monitors.

$400 is tempting, all that extra workspace. If only I hadn't already spent all my extra money on an iphone :)
