To Infinity And Beyond!

I also just upgraded my backup internet connection to my ISP's new unlimited plan.  Even so, running flat out, it will take nearly four months to fill up Sugar.

Sugar!

Sugar arrived today.  She's my third little NAS box to go with (naturally) Pepper and Salt.  Pepper and Salt are Acer Easystore boxes that I bought empty and filled up with spare drives; they work so well that I wanted to get another - but they stopped making that model and replaced it with a Windows Home Server system, which apparently also works well but isn't what I want.

So I ended up ordering a LaCie 5big Network thingy.  Then discovered that they don't make those any more either.  Then discovered that they'd replaced it with the LaCie 5big Network 2 thingy, which is the same but three times faster.  Which is a definite plus: The one problem with the old Easystore - and most of the other first-generation mini-NASes - is that it's kind of slow; for the v2 LaCie replaced the 500MHz Arm processor with a 1.2GHz model.

It arrived today.  Yay!

It's apparently made of cast iron.  It's a little bitty thing: 6.8 x 7.7 x 8.6 inches (from the spec sheet) but the box weighs as much as a full-size PC.

Update: Oh.  I thought it was white.  It's not, it's silver.  Looking at the pictures on the website again, I realise that that's what they're showing - they just photographed it on white surroundings.

Update: Crap.  It sounds like a can of marbles.  That means it's using Hitachi drives.  That sucks.

World Gone Mad

Why the HELL is Peopleware out of print?!

It's the best book ever written on managing software development teams.  (The Mythical Man Month is the best book ever written on managing software development projects.)

Used copies in good condition are going for $200 and up!  Get that sucker into reprint, now.
