  • I liked a YouTube video -- OK Go - This Too Shall Pass - Rube Goldberg Machine version ... http://youtu.be/qybUFnY7Y8w?a #
  • I love friendsourced people tagging in Facebook. Tag one friend, and it goes viral! #
  • Google Chrome freezes on start about 20% of the time on both of my Macs. Wonder what is going on... #
  • I am 74% addicted to Twitter http://su.pr/1b72Ly from the astounding @oatmeal #
  • I need to get a direct gigabit line running from Mac Pro to iSCSI unit. Going through router is not ideal. Just need more Cat 5e/6. #
  • Shopping for an iSCSI box that can have large volumes (>2TB - why I can't use my Readynas). Any suggestions? (aside from DroboPro). #
  • @uwfotog "Rebuild" should rebuild the database from the messages, and shouldn't wipe anything out. Entourage will back up old DB. in reply to uwfotog #
  • @churnd Interesting. Hadn't seen Lacie's solution. Don't like, though -- only supports standard RAID and not expandable solutions...? in reply to churnd #
  • Should I be looking at 10 GbE iSCSI solutions? Is it there yet for home use? Expensive!! #
  • @wooster VessRAID doesn't seem to officially support Mac OS X. Think it does? I like that it supports LACP! in reply to wooster #

  • @mdgmnas I have ReadyNAS Pro. When I create an iSCSI volume, it says 2000GB max! in reply to mdgmnas #
  • Wow. Seacam Canon 5D Mark II housing (full system) and two camera bodies both sold within 24 hours of posting online. #
  • @mdgmnas Thank you! I will likely wait for an add-on for conversion from EXT3 to EXT4. It would take days to back up and restore! in reply to mdgmnas #
  • ReadyNAS Pro, NVX +others now default to Ext4 after factory default - would take me days to backup, update, restore. http://ech.cc/cwb7uz #
  • @mdgmnas I'm sure I'd back things up before doing any sort of conversion, anyway. I just need a couple of weeks for the transfer time. ;) in reply to mdgmnas #
  • It seems silly to be snail mailing data ( I just mailed a USB stick to Peter and Char full of wedding photos and video ). #
  • @mdgmnas Quick question: does the Ready NAS Pro Pioneer edition now support iSCSI with >2TB volumes w/the add-on? Equivalent to Pro Biz Mod? in reply to mdgmnas #
  • I never thought the day would come, but I have gone cropped sensor. Hello, Tokina 10-17! #
  • Want to snorkel with humpback whales in Tonga? A spot just opened up for Sep 1-8 on a friend's trip. DM/contact for details. #
  • @mdgmnas That's the conclusion I'm coming to. Deciding btw Pioneer or another Business (now that Pioneer has iSCSI) in reply to mdgmnas #
