Data Robotics, Inc. DROBO

Data Robotics, Inc.: "What does it mean to go BeyondRAID? Going beyond traditional RAID means leaving behind choices between striping and mirroring, limitations on expandability, drive sizing, and drive ordering, among others. BeyondRAID™ technology is the next generation of storage that brings together safety, reliability, expandability, efficiency, and of course ease-of-use. It fits in the same place in the stack as traditional RAID between the file system and the driver. BeyondRAID can be adopted without any change in infrastructure, allowing you to maintain your current file system and operating system and eliminating the friction costs typically associated with moving to a new technology platform. It is RAID in the sense that the technology utilizes a redundant array of independent disks but not in the usual meaning of the acronym."

Technovia: Switching

Technovia: Switching: "ou might have gathered from some of my more recent posts that I've switched platform. My main machine is now a Dell laptop, running Ubuntu 8.10.

I've been using Macs since 1986, and have owned one more or less continuously since 1989. Machines that have been through the mill of my day-to-day keyboard bashing include the Mac Plus, LC 475, PowerBook Duo, iBook and MacBook Pro. I've earned a living writing about Macs and attended more Macworld Expos than I can count.

But unless Apple has a change of direction and creates some very different machines, I think that I've probably bought my last one.

The reasons behind moving from Mac OS X to Linux are varied."

The Turning Gate / Lightroom

The Turning Gate / Lightroom: "TTG Lightroom Galleries

This area of The Turning Gate is dedicated to Adobe Lightroom, primarily focusing on Lightroom’s Web module.

Lightroom’s Web module allows users to create web photo galleries of their images “with little effort and no programming, and preview the results in Lightroom before [publishing] them to [a] site” (Lightroom product page).

I have produced a number of web photo gallery templates, tutorials and articles for Lightroom‘s Web module, all freely available here. The list of available contents is located in the right-hand column of this page.

Because the volume of content may be at first overwhelming to new visitors, I’ll here try to provide some context to get you started."
