How I love thee RAID1

Well, having a RAID1 setup on this server has saved my a$$ in a huge way. Yesterday I started getting notifications of a smart failure on one of the drives (I have two configured as a RAID1 across a few partitions). So I went down to the colo to swap …

Level 40... finally

Well, I've been playing WoW for a while now... since the summer of last year. I finally managed to get my druid up to level 40. Yeah, you young guys with nothing but homework are laughing at me now since it's taken me so long to hit, but whatever... considering …
