You forget, not all of us need or want G33k power hardware (although many would say having my ReadyNas is geek level) and some consumer friendly software goes a long way. Common mistake of experts in their field. FWIW, the Readynas is very quiet, except at reboot, when the fan goes to max for a couple of minutes. Hot swappable 1TB RAID drives for consumer use at about..I think it was $350 after rebates? What a deal.

This is sort of an old issue, but it raised its head again last night as I was pushing again to import more of my CD collection onto iTunes, since I'm headed out of town for a few weeks and want to have as much of my music with me as possible. When I first tried to do this about 18 months ago, I had taken a bunch of my best discs and set them in a pile to run through. I got only about halfway before losing momentum, but the pile sat on an old Victrola we used as a decorative table/storage cabinet in our kitchen for a long time. At the time, the house was on the market, and people were going through. Anyways, one day I went to find the discs and they were all gone. I guess it's possible we misplaced them ourselves, but every month or two I get a bug in my ass over it and I turn the house upside down looking for them. I swear either the cleaning ladies or one of the people in a walk-through lifted them. I've lost a number of my best albums, and probably a bunch that I don't even remember at the moment. Among them: Tracy Chapman , Sigur Ros (Takk), several Flecktones discs, Uncommon Ritual.

It's quiet on the consumer model. I guarantee you that the 3200 makes no attempts to be quiet. But ya, I agree with you that the consumer features are probably nice for someone like you. I wouldn't want any of that though. I'm about to stick a new hard drive into my machine and reboot and do a linux install on it. I'm pretty sure at this point that my problem is that either VMWare of window 7 is stripping my 802.1q tags and that is why traffic isn't making it back into the virtualized router from the far end switch. I've verified that I can do it under linux so it'll be a half-measure test that I can do without doing a full-blown ESX server installation. If all goes well I'll be specing a couple new servers later today... One for ESX server and one for iSCSI. (after I get some sleep) I'm giddy. It's still annoying cause i'll have to wait a week before I can get back to studying properly.

Ate pizza for lunch the past 3 days in a row. I feel disguistingly fat and ashamed of myself.

^You make me sick. I have an exam tomorrow morning and I just don't want to study for it. I should probably go to the library because I doubt I'll actually do anything in my apartment.

Going from one retail sales job I am wholly overqualified for and having a shitty manager to another retail sales job I am wholly overqualified for with another shitty manager. economy P.S. I gave my job my two weeks notice on saturday, and told them I would be unable to show up today for my 4 hour shift. The manager stated it was my responsibility to find someone to cover my shift (um, no. I just tendered my resignation, it's now your job) and when I mentioned I was unable to show up, she stated she would write me up (really? I just quit, what good would writing me up do?). Today I get a voicemail from one of the assistant managers asking me where I was. My God, that place has NO communication.

w00t! My problem is fixed. Had to stick a new hard drive and install linux and run the VMWare Server from there. It turns out Windows 7 WAS in fact stripping my 802.1Q tags as they were arriving back from the switch. Bottom line, since I know you guys have been following this with baited breath, is that I can build my VMWare ESX Server without worry that it won't do everything I need it to do. Until then I'll be stuck dual-booting though.

Now comes the fun part... Specing it. I'm going to build a monster of a machine.

I wish you the best of luck at CVS.

Being handed other people's unfinished work "oh, it only needs tidying up and finishing off, shouldn't take you long" bollocks. The reason unfinished work is passed on is because the first person was making a hash of it, or it was taking them too long to do it and cleaning up the mess is almost as much work as starting from scratch.

I think RJMan's black dog has found me for a spell.
