>>Nothing quite like two national governments recommending against using your product to raise the priority of fixing the problem

Nothing like people actually switching browsers in droves because of the warnings to raise the priority of fixing it. Now that they've switched, what are the chances of those lost users switching back?

SCO Proposes Sale of Assets To Continue Litigation

>>Have SCO stocks reached zero value yet?

Zero value was reached years ago, some idiots are still purchasing (very few) shares at about $0.15 though, so the stock isn't reflecting the true value, even though their new plan proposes paying stockholders perhaps $0.02/share if things go well.

Why RAID 5 Stops Working In 2009

bstone Re:Don't panic! (803 comments)

Using the same failure rate figures as the article, you WILL get an unrecoverable read error each and every time you back up your 12 TB of data. You will be able to recover from the single block failure because of the RAID 5 setup.

With that kind of error rate, drive manufacturers will be forced to design to higher standards, they won't be able to sell drives that fail at that rate.
