How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

BitingChaos Re:Friends don't let friends use RAID! (983 comments)

RAID is fine, even for home users. The only way you could lose data to RAID is if it wasn't backed up. RAID isn't a backup.

How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

BitingChaos Really? (983 comments)

Services like CrashPlan cost pennies a day and would have backed it all up. If they could afford 20TB of media and the storage to host it, there is no reason they could not afford to back it up.

FreeBSD 8.4 Released

BitingChaos Re:only recommended if you need to stay on 8.x (80 comments)

9.1 also shipped with a busted MFI driver - it corrupts data on drives larger than 2TB. While you can download and compile a fixed kernel, they still haven't released an official update, since it is seen as a "bug fix", and not a "security fix". 8.4 may have been better for our new server. :(

Ouya Game Console Retail Launch Delayed Until June 25

BitingChaos Re:iFixit: 9/10 stars (121 comments)

OnLive actually works surprisingly well... It's a shame that it hasn't been a success. The same technology will be used by Sony in the PS4. If it works there, maybe more people will take a look at OnLive, again (if they're still in business).

A history of terrible software support? Blame the users. The comments here are funny.
