Submission + - Banksy back? (

JohnnySlash writes: While Fox got all up in arms over the Banksy intro to the Simpsons that aired on October 10th "Loan-a-Lisa", it appears that they replaced the intro on Hulu with a recent one involving the iconic couch as a getaway car. Now, the Hulu version of last week's episode, "MoneyBART", has the subversive intro sequence intact.

Comment Lots of Space (Score 4, Insightful) 481

Having read the previous posts about the LaCie drives (multiple drives, one enclosure), I wanted to start a different thread regarding large amounts of drive space: I am a professional video editor, so I drink up drive space like water. Last summer, we were faced with a documentary project that referenced 450 hour long tapes. We turned to a G5 running FinalCut on 8GB ram, and, in the end, 6 of the LaCie Big Disk Extremes (500GB). We armed the G5 with a pair of Firewire 800 cards with three ports a piece, giving each drive it's own connection. Though we were forced to do pretty regular system maintenance (repair permissions, trash caches), the system ran REALLY well. i would do it again with some sort of redundancy (without it - scary, huh?), but we were somewhat limited for time to plan this system. Depending on your job/lifestyle, even 3TB can be too small these days...
