7/23    I know it was on the motd a while back, but wasn't paying attention.
        Any recommendation for a RAID enclosure that uses IDE HD, but has
        an external SCSI interface to connect to your computer?
        \_ I use this:
  which is the same as this:
           It's really made by "miti" or something like that in San Jose.
           I'll find out if you really care.
           \_ It would be appreciated.  I'd rather deal with a local vendor.
              \_ I'll look at the box tomorrow or ask my local vendor for you
                 and repost.  I'm sure this whole thing will be gone by then.

5/6 (shortened link from
        seems like I get these every 6 months or so from HP.  Do all drives
         have these kind of issues and I only see the ones from HP because
         they are diligent about reporting/fixing these issues?  Or do they
         suck?   (It's not actually their drives so...)  Also, do I really
         need to bring down my production infrastructure and fix all this

1/4     I want to test how my servers behave during a disk failure and
        a RAID reconstruction so I want to simulate a hardware failure.
        How can I do this in Linux without having to physically pull
        a drive? These disks are behind a RAID card and run Linux. -ausman
        \_ According to the Linux RAID wiki, you might be able to use mdadm
           to do this with something like the following:

9/13    Thanks to Jordan, our disk server is no longer virtualized. Our long
        nightmare of poor IO performance should hopefully be over. Prepare for
        another long nightmare of poor hardware reliability!
        Just kidding! (I hope)
        In any case, this means that cooler was taken out back and shot, and

2/14    You sure soda isn't running windows in disguise?  It would explain the
        \_ hardly, My winbox stays up longer.
        \_ Nobody cares about uptime anymore brother, that's what web2.0 has
           taught us.  Everything is "stateless".
           \_ You;d think gamers would care more about uptime.

2/18    Why does the system seem so sluggish lately?
        \_ Slow NFS is basically always the answer. --toulouse
        \_ Any truth to the rumor that soda will be decommissioned this summer?
           \_ Absolutely none. Soda might go down temporarily while disks are
              reorganized and stuff so soda doesn't suffer from such shitty
              performance nearly as much, but no, we've gotta maintain NFS and

7/22    Playing with dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/<disk> on linux and bsd:
        2 questions, on linux when <disk>==hda it always gives me this off
        by one report i.e. Records out == records in-1 and says there is an
        error. Has anyone else seen this?  Second, when trying to repeat this
        on bsd, <disk>==rwd0 now, to my surprise, using the install disk and
        selecting (S)hell, when I try to dd a 40 gig disk it says "409 records

1/26    What's a good motherboard I can get that will fit in a 1U
        case, with sata connectors, gig-e ethernet, and lots of
        slots for RAM?  I also don't want to have to use expensive
        double buffered RAM.  Can you tell I havne't bought a PC in
        years?  thanks.
        \_ Buy a mac. Haven't you heard? if you don't buy a Mac people

        Anyone have a recommendation? Thx.
