    Coming in to your office & seeing your IT guy closing the hood on your machine after installing 2 terabytes of RAID10 HD storage with an ATA card with 64 megs of memory on board.

    OK...tough to beat. But I don't know my IT guy like that.


    BM- I am a graphic artist/animator for two TV stations. I may just render out every 3ds MAX & AE project just for the hell of it....but that still won't make a dent. It is actually two 1 Tb mirrored in case one dies, but they are the new green HDs so they dont produce nearly as much heat so the chance of that happening is slim to none, especially with my "fan club" stirring things up.

    A mirror set is RAID 1, not "RAID 10".

    Heat's not the drive killer, tiny amounts of crud that get inside in the manufacturing process is.

    Unless you know something I don't, the "green" HDs don't have a reliability advantage.

    I am the tech-geek. My IT guy (I call him Santa) is. I am just here to be creative.

    He tries to explain this stuff to me & I comprehend 1/3rd of it. He talks fast & drinks 6 shots of espresso in his joe. :twitch:

    As for the dust my 2 intake fans are filtered.

    RAID 10 is striped mirrors. It provides a mirror AND a striped array, for performance and tolerance.

    RAID 1+0 is tough to do with two drives, though...

    Where did he say 2 drives?

    Hey, I'm just explaining the terms, don't look at me like I'M the one who thought a RAID array was better than morning head.

    I mean, it is.

    But only slightly. :nerd:

    Even if I did know my IT guy like that, he has this crazy beard that could make it really itchy.

    He didn't. Don't confuse the argument with facts, please.

    I must be the cool IT guy because I'm on the 2nd floor and ride my bike down the stairwell when I leave for the day. It beats waiting for the elevator!

    It's a security dealio. The stairwell doors are locked from the outside and there are a lot of old people in wheelchairs around here.

    I guess I should have phrased the question "What can make a Monday @ work fantastic besides calling in sick or getting out of the pen?"

    *EDIT ....& besides a BJ.

    My perfect Monday at work would consist of the building burning down.
