Re: Rolling Blackouts - Woohoo (That's Sarcasm)

I've only had to dig a car out of ice/snow one time, when I was working in Detroit. If I had to do that everyday I'd probably be in better physic...

Re: Hot swap Raid....

There is no setup. I work in a datacenter (sadly i dont know hot swap in depth already). I actually replaced a failed raid 1 the other day on a dell 1950 SAS6ir and hot swapped the drive so it would auto re-sync and failed. It could have been the replacement drive was not large enough by a few MB or...

Hot swap Raid....

Re: Chill Out music

I don't have XM radio in my vehicle, but have heard great things from family members that have it in their vehicles. Do you think that it is worth the extra money to have it in your vehicle and also to pay for the subscription? I think it would be nice to have an alternative to some of the radio pe...

Re: Crucial Technology Shows Off Ballistix Smart Tracers

Being the LED freak that I am I would be drooling over these like there is no tomorrow. The only reason Im not is the history I have experienced with Crucial. Both treys and mine.
