So exactly how long has my network switch been subtly broken?
(We went through Freedom9s and Iomegas and DLinks and Drobos (NOT CHEAP) before settling on the QNAPs. WE LOVE QNAP.)

Aside: RAID-5? Stinky, especially for writes. (Anecdote: years ago, I was contracting for a company who contacted their database vendor for some performance tips. The vendor came in, looked around, and said "call us back when you're off RAID 5." Another anecdote: I once moved the database off a RAID 5 SAN onto a pair of mirrored drives that lived in the server. Nobody ever noticed, performance-wise. In both cases, these were databases with a lot of updates.)
I'd assume Pixy knows this, but for everyone else who uses, for example, transactional databases with a lot of I/O, ignore the hardware vendors. You don't want RAID 5.

For file storage, though, RAID-5 it's fine. And for databases on SSD, it's probably fine too, because SSDs are so much faster than disk on random writes that it doesn't matter unless you're at the far, far end of the curve.

Pixy, I need an application of the ban hammer, please.
My spammer just returned. I tagged his most recent spam as "hide" so you could look at it. Here's what I could determine about him:

I saw that you'd done a lot of work (including hammering my spammer, thank you ) and this morning there seemed to be no new spam. It was like a headache being gone.
But now I see they're back again. It is a pity...
