Oh wow. This is the first time I've heard the US called a "Goldfish Culture that forgets it's world every 15 minutes," but it's so true. We're SO overrun by horrifying events that we have no time to be outraged long enough by any of them, to do anything about them.

Behold: I give you - FrankenRAID

A mighty 3.8 TB of iSCSI serving disk goodness made from a Raspberry Pi and some retired RAID hardware.

“What has science done?!?”

So I had a problem with the condensation from my drink running down close to my laptop because my desk was slanted so I uhh had a big brain solution.

Browsing the Fediverse: it's okay to have a quick view at accounts that post stuff you may find disgusting. You're either just lost or just are being morbidly curious, it's normal, no one will know.

Browsing proprietary social networks: A-HA! YOU CLICKED ON SOME VIDEOS OF KITTENS BEING TORTURED! HERE'S MORE SNUFF VIDEO, RIGHT ON YOUR MAIN PAGE! HERE'S SOME TORTURE ADS IN YOUR LOCAL AREA! YOU LIKE IT, DON'T YOU, YOU FREAK HA HA HA

"Bored. These bourgeois businessmen and their JSON manifests. So bored."

they should make rainbows irl to piss off the homophobes

Avoid temptation and do not use all cabinets in JBOD mode for it is an abomination and your IOPS will really suck

It is complete; I have brought forth... FrankenRAID

Ingredients:
- 1 two-disk RAID box in JBOD mode because RAID 1 mode is broken
- 1 four-disk RAID box in RAID 5 mode... but 1 of the 4 bays is dead
- 1 Raspberry Pi 4
- Ethernet
- tgtd (to be an iSCSI server)

Preparation:
- Create a RAID 1 virtual disk from the JBOD disks using md
- Create a LVM RAID 0 by stitching the RAID 5 and the virtual RAID 1 together
- Add rPi and tgtd to taste

Death comes on every passing breeze,
He lurks in every flower;
Each season has its own disease,
Its peril -- every hour.
-- Reginald Heber

Self-promotion, publication 

So, a lot has been happening and 2 years ago I was asked to contribute a personal piece of writing for the anthology Transgender Marxism, under my name Farah Thompson. It has now been published, along with dozens of other works by other writers.

You can order it here: plutobooks.com/9780745341668/t

Only one human captain has ever survived battle with a Minbari Fleet. He is behind me. You are in front of me. If you value your lives…be somewhere else!

So, I'm decommissioning my old RAID arrays and, depending on function, replacing them either a newer, faster RAID or NAS.

The one I decommed last night had an old Seagate 1TB drive that I received as a *used* drive... in 2016. Never had an issue. That's impressive.

i still remember my friend's dad who was a good engineer and never believed in artists but he saw my work and told me to pursue it and i cling onto that memory a lot

So, I updated Firefox... and it performs horribly and then locks up. Not even enough time to dump cookies before it locks up and I have to Force Quit.

So, I guess I'm using something else until Firefox updates again.
