RAID at home

I just read a thing on slashdot about RAID at home. One guy said that he does software RAID 1 mirrors, grouped together under LVM. I am totally going to do this. The beauty of it is that you can trivially continue to add drives to the setup just as in un-RAIDed LVM. Granted, it's a /bit/ wasteful of space, but that is a small price to pay compared to the ease of expansion as you want more room.

Plus, later on, you can just repurpose the smaller drives, as you hit the limits of your other hardware (motherboard, powersupply, etc.)

For instance, the capabillity to interact with a remote daemon are added to the client software without any explicit modification to it. Vice versa, the remote daemon must be explicitely installed (and configured) on the remote machine.

This is a cool idea.


A 'nopaste' site allows people to paste chunks of code for others to view. This is useful for situations such as asking for programming help on IRC, where it is frowned upon to paste chunks of code to the channel or to individual. With a nopaste site, the user pastes his or her code to the site and is given a url to provide to others so they can find the code.

Braglia Marketing are evil bastards.

So, I usually don't post anything but links, but I am really quite angry at Braglia Marketing right now. They've (according to caller ID) been calling for weeks and every time I answer the phone, no one is on the other end. Finally, tonight, I answer the phone and there is someone on the other end of the line.

He's selling something or other, there's some new thing at Fisherman's Wharf and we can get a free trip to Hawaii, and we "don't have to buy shit." I ask to have us taken off the list, he starts getting all snippy, so I ask to talk to his manager.

That's when things took a turn for the weird. He refuses to let me talk to his manager (?!) and demands to know why I would want to. I pointed out that he had refused to take me off the list, and that he had sworn at me twice (not technically true, I suppose, since it wasn't really at me so much as to me). He then got even more snippy and said "What you would like to do, and what you are going to do are two different things." (referring to me wanting to talk to his manager). Then he says that I swore at him, and eventually hangs up on me.

2 minutes later, the girl sitting next to him calls back and starts yelling at me (she calls me "Thomas", I think their list is outdated). Apparently, the guy I was talking to told her that I called him a nigger (obviously not true), and she wanted to give me a piece of her mind.

I tried explaining the situation to her, but I don't think she believed me.

It was super weird, because that guy actually goes through life literally making up stories about what "really" happened. It always surprises me when people refuse to acknowledge reality, and even more so when they actively struggle against it (e.g. by creating fictional events).

I hope they recorded the call. :)

P.S. I am on the do not call list, and have been since 7/26/2003. That is why Braglia Marketing are "evil bastards."

From what I had understood, LegalMatch was basically a big scam, where they ripped off both the lawyers who signed up, and the people looking for lawyers (by overrepresenting their numbers to each other). Maybe they finally hit "critical mass".

Regardless, they definitely treated their employees badly.
