Reminds me I need to get a book on PowerShell (and start riding again, applying to schools has been killing my riding time)
So, anyone know anything about PIC16F84 microprocessors? And if so, any knowledge of writing a program utilizing it in MPLAB using CLRF, ADDLW, and XORLW instructions?

Was reviewing another student's code today...
He trusted user's input.
I got a question...
I'm about to build a 2 or 3TB RAID array.
I was talking to a guy I do some work for that just built a nasty little file server for the work that he does, he said something about "RAID specific" hard drives. Something about the "timing" and how "normal" hard drives can cause errors when in an array.
I've never heard of this...but found what' he's talking about.
What is this nonsense? Is it nonsensical or should you spend the extra $40?
RAID's been around a long time, I'd guess much longer than techs like TLER have existed. I'd think of it like ECC RAM. Not necessary, but depending on your intended use it can be worth it.
For a home server, I wouldn't bother. Spend the extra $$ on a USB enclosure and a couple of extra HDs for backup.

this brief gives a far better explanation than I could give off the top of my head. After having it save me from myself (at least at home) numerous times, I'm a huge WHS proponent, and the ease of use just can't be matched by RAID. If I had to squeeze every bit of performance out of my NAS, I'd definitely go with something else but for simple streaming media and backups it's a hard system to beat.
Putting the Duh in Floriduh.
Any of you geeks know where I can buy one of these in the US?
