The Third Magisterium

Greg Knauss:

"Starting now, I do. I declare myself the world's primary expert in questions so stupid that they lack any sort of meaning other than reasonably correct grammar."

I'm having a lunch meeting with a new prospective client today. I'm actually starting to love doing presentations. Maybe with a bit more practice I'll even get to be good at it :) Just need to relax. Like usual! Too high strung and nervous, breathe in breathe out.

Save the Day

The (e:strip) holiday dinner will be on Dec 13th, a Thursday. Save the day, and be prepared to sign up (it's a potluck) sometime after Thanksgiving (no more planning for now).

See you on the other side of turkey day!

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 :)
