Immune Response Altered For Viruses Like HIV And Hepatitis C->

From feed by sdfeed
After an acute viral infection, some T cells generated to kill virus-infected cells remain on guard to establish long-term immunity. These so-called memory T cells, which derive from CD8 T cells, engage in a self-renewal process essential to their persistence. Now, a new study shows that the CD8 T cells produced to fight a chronic infection operate under an entirely different maintenance scheme than do the CD8 T cells that become memory T cells.

+ - The Implications of Free Java

Is this truly a non-event or does the assumption of such a robust tool set on GNU systems change the landscape? What happens to LAMP? Will Tomcat move in as the web server du jour? Can PHP finally die? What about the venerable Portable Operating System Interface? It seems like there is a lot of room that could be filled by this move."

Basically you load it up with 2-4 hard drives of any size and it will mirror data across the drives. Once protection is achieved you can hot swap or loose any drive with out loosing data. If and when a drive is lost or removed the Drobo will re-mirror/reorganize the data to ensure that another drive can be lost. Of course the total storage does not equal that of the drives installed. A simple set of lights indicate when data is completely protected and you can risk loosing one drive. The lights indicate when you are running low on space and when you are not in a protected mode. Check out the community site to read some in depth discussions. Here are a few short reviews."
