11/13   lolz, do the cops delete their copy of your data when they return
        your computer?

5/6     http://goo.gl/KiIMT (shortened link from http://HP.com)
        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

        another long nightmare of poor hardware reliability!

10/27   I just read an article that Facebook had moved their database

8/20    When I use rsync to backup, it's pretty cool except in cases where
        I rename a directory name from the source. Rsync will just do
        a plain copy. Is there a program that'll detect renaming of
        directories (by checking for children files), or at least
        move them to a dated directory?

7/24    Firefox 3.5.1 on MacOS is a piece of crap. It crashes ALL THE TIME.
        It has crashed 3 or 4 times on me in the last hour, and not on
        the same pages either. The new Yahoo! home page also sucks ass.

5/2     I have a 1Gbps switch. It is connected to a SANS RAID-1 with
        two WD Green 1T that takes 1Gbps connection, as well as a laptop
        that is also 1Gbps. Online benchmarks show *sustained* transfer
        rate of about 1/2 of 1Gbps with the WD Green... cool!!! But
        in practice, I'm only getting 68Mbps (read SANS->PC file transfer),
        far below what I expected. The switch says both devices are using

12/5    In RAID 1, when I write, is it a synchronous write to both drives?
        In another word, is my write complete upon verifying BOTH drives
        have written (indicating the slowest drive = bottleneck)? How about
        read? Does RAID 1 require reading both drives, comparing results,
        then returning them? Or can it do striping read?

Robert Burnett shows computers that campus police returned to Berkeley's Long Haul Infoshop after they were seized in an Aug. Richard Brenneman Robert Burnett shows computers that campus police returned to Berkeley's Long Haul Infoshop after they were seized in an Aug. Berkeley's Long Haul Infoshop finally has its computers back, but its legal battle with UC Berkeley is far from settled. Jennifer Granick, Civil Liberties Director for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) in San Francisco, said she has asked the campus police to delete all the information they seized during an Aug. Members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force seized computers and electronic storage devices from several offices at 3124 Shattuck Ave. looking for evidence that would identify the senders of threatening e-mails received by campus researchers who experiment on live animals. Granick said the university has yet to respond to a letter "we sent about two weeks ago." The EFF and the American Civil Liberties Union have been working with groups at the Long Haul, with the ACLU replacing the National Lawyers Guild, which had earlier been involved in the case. The raid raises a number of legal issues, Granick said, including the sworn statement used by campus Detective Bill Kasiske to get a search warrant, which failed to mention that the Long Haul offices housed several organizations including a publication--which is entitled to special protections under federal law. The presence of the Slingshot, a quarterly tabloid newsletter, raises questions under the federal Privacy Protection Act, which gives special legal status to organizations that disseminate information to the public, said the EFF attorney. If the search was invalid, then campus police aren't entitled to retain or use any of the information seized during the raid, Granick said. Attorneys for the Long Haul are now deciding what their next steps will be. No arrests have yet been made as a result of the raid, which featured officers from the campus police and Alameda County Sheriff's department as well as at least one FBI agent. The raiders removed locks from several doors, including those of offices housing Slingshot and East Bay Prisoner Support, a group which works with inmates. Four of the computers were freely available for "activist-oriented access" to anyone who sat down at the keyboards in a second floor loft area. Election '08: The Horse Race Follow the up-to-the-minute odds on the 2008 election. Motivated, confident self-starters wanted to work as account executives with on-line and print advertisers. A great entry level-media job for the graduate who has some previous sales experience.
