Home From The Holidays

Well we got back last night from our long weekend away at (e:James)' family's house. Nice relaxing weekend, definitely feel better after talking some time off and away from the computer. It's a bit weird that I never see my family anymore, what with James' family being so much closer to us then my Dad, we tend to spend all the holidays at his family's. And then the extended family I still have in Buffalo, I never see at holidays because we're out of town. Hoping to get out west soon though, and reconnect with my relatives here in town.

On the other hand, I had intended to get at least *some* work done to keep this week from being too insane, but I had no cell reception and wasn't able to connect my laptop to the wifi in their house. Grrr. They live just outside of the NYC area, in Putnam county, and I don't understand why they have no cell reception. It's just housing for as far as the eye can see. No idea why the wifi wasn't working though, pain in the ass, that.

Head Gonna Asplode

I was off this afternoon, just in a fog and less then productive, think I need some time off. Going to go out for a drink tonight and staying away from the computer.

Had this great idea for something today though, hard to let it go. Will just file it away until this weekend. Turning a problem inside out and maybe solving it much easier? We'll see.

Draaaaaank. Then sleep. Yup.

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?
