Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
...is that in a properly-designed SSD, there is no such thing as data fragmentation. You lay out the nand as a circular log and write to every bit of it once before you overwrite, and maintain a set of pointers that translates LBA to memory addresses.
Pretty much every SSD vendor out there has figured this out a few years ago.
I have a PDF scan of all important IDs/health cards/etc on a drive in my safe deposit box. It's also where I store my long term email/document archives.
I keep a mirror at home, which is what I update most frequently and any time I go to the bank, I just swap the external home drive with the one in the safe deposit box, go home and rsync the current data to it.
My safe deposit box key lives in a floor safe in my home which should survive even a gas leak explosion/tornado/etc.
Now that you can easily fit 3-6TB in an external enclosure, you can do some pretty flexible things with backups.
Here's my system.
Local 3TB drive in system, mirrored to 2nd internal 3TB drive
Nightly, I rsync that data to a 3TB mirrored NAS
Weekly I rsync that data to a 2nd 3TB mirrored NAS
Monthly, I rsync to an external 3TB enclosure via USB
When I go to the bank to deposit checks every month or two, I swap the 3TB external USB enclosure with an identical one in my safe deposit box.
Only costs me $50 a year for the safe deposit box, and I don't have to worry about my neighbors breaking anything.
Also, I have a 2nd manual version of my backup scripts featuring --delete for when storage starts to fill.
Have you looked at the price point of the ioScale cards?

That's one of the important pieces to take away from this... we can get to Mars and survive the trip... and can likely do a return trip.
Oh, why the hell am I never logged in when I post stuff like this, lol...

Nothing better than coming home from work to a fresh package of socks!
The artist draws everything in vector and often puts a lot of little details into each frame.
A vector viewer is available (swf) allowing you to zoom in and appreciate all the little details.
Check them out. Definitely one of the most artsy comics I've seen online.
We've been touching monitors for quite a long time without any issue. It's been completely unnecessary up until now, but I doubt there will be many issues with monitors finally responding to user touch and doing something useful in return.

Been using NX for years, I love it.
Wish there were some more updates to nomachine... are there any other clients out there that are more up to date?
The cache on a hard disk is often used as write cache - store incoming data in cache, leave actually committing it to disk until a convenient opportunity arises.
32MB of cache doesn't take that long to flush. 1GB, OTOH...
You're forgetting that a hybrid drive would be using NAND flash vs DRAM... NAND is a NVRAM and won't have to be flushed to disk in the event of a power outage. It is persistent.
That said, they may still use a little bit of DRAM cache in the drive.
