    Lion day!

    Not that I know of, but off the top of my head this is what you need to do. Might not be 100% accurate, but you gets the idea. You may need to change this for your NAS... 1. Login to your NAS 2. Download the netatalk beta source: wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/n...use_mirror=waix 3. Unpack the file: tar xvfz netatalk-2.2-beta4.tar.bz2 4. Change to the directory: cd netatalk-2.2-beta4 5. Configure for install: ./configure 6. Compile and install: make && make install Hope that helps :)

    Lion day!

    Did a fresh install last night. Some things I like, somethings I don't. Overall seems like a decent upgrade. Only thing I have found is Time Machine backups not working to my ZFS NAS, but a simple update to netatalk 2.2 beta 4 has solved that.

    NBN pricing looking good.

    Brunswick must be getting pretty damn close, lots of places have equipment installed now and got a letter from NBNCo getting people to pester ISPs for testing. Just wish I wasn't living somewhere with a useless landlord/body corporate :( Time to move!

    Have a look at iiNet then ;)http://www.iinet.net.au/nbn/ OK, so it is 100/100GB on/off peak, but still... Not really sure why any of this is news, pricing has been available for 12 months or more now...

    Lion day!

    Wait a month and get it on USB then. For twice the price =\ Me, I'll just make install media from the Lion installer. *Finally* finished downloading, was crazy slow this morning and even this evening it took a couple of hours. Meh, will install this weekend anyway.

    Microsoft Police aka Microsoft Software Audit

    Yeah, had to fill out the spreadsheet earlier this year. The dude I was dealing with was pretty good about it, there was a bit of back and forth, but ultimately was pretty straight-forward. In the end we were able to get credits for old unused licenses for newer products which was nice. And then I left the company to sort out the ~$50k worth of license shortfall which they had ignored when I brought it up in the past... If you have to install software you could always blow them off stating ITIL/change management processes to either get out of it, or delay it :P
  7. Essentially, it is software RAID with a few more features. It really is worth the effort IMO, but it is up to you whether you feel comfortable learning a new OS. That said, it is less than 1 hr work to install the OS, set up the zpool and share it out. Once you have done that, there is very little left to do :) And as I said, if you are not comfortable with the underlying OS, you can work around this. Definitely do a google for what I posted in my last post if you are interested. Performance shouldn't be too much of a problem anyway, your gigabit NIC will likely be the bottleneck anyway :P
  8. Are you planning on using this PC for anything but storage? If not, you could save yourself from buying a RAID card and just create a zpool from the drives. ZFS is fantastic in that it is controller-agnostic, which means that your motherboard, RAID card, or any other controller the drives are on are irrelevant. You can simply pop the drives in a new machine and import the pool with no loss of data (believe me, I have had to do this on a few occasions!). Plus, you get the bonus of compression and dedupe. If you feel like learning a new OS, have a look at OpenIndiana, OpenSolaris or Solaris Express 11. It will be a bit of a learning curve, but there are lots of guides out there, and people to help you here. If not, there are more "user friendly" distros such as FreeNAS or NexentaStor which wrap the underlying OS in a pretty web interface. Typically you won't get the performance or some of the newer features in these releases, but in a home environment that may not matter so much.

    Powershell scripting

    OK, for yes/no answers it may make more sense to use a menu: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff730939.aspx That way you force the answer to be either a yes or a no. For checking of numbers you can check if the variable is an integer. while ($var.gettype() -ne System.Int32) { $var=read-host "Input a number" }On my Mac at the moment so can't test it, but you get the idea, yeah?

    [MELB] Dinner at Rumi

    Maybe *you're* all pikers from tonight when I was planning on going! :P

    [MELB] Dinner at Rumi

    Whoops, I just read the first post. I assumed it was still on for the 1st at Zum Zum. I'm out on the 9th -_-

    [MELB] Dinner at Rumi

    I'm in, if there is a spot.

    [MELB] Dinner at Rumi

    The other option is Baba, just down the street from Rumi. Usually a bit easier to get into, and I'd say about on par with Rumi. Edit: Sundays are generally not great for me

    [MELB] Dinner at Rumi

    I'm probably out for dinner, but will swing by for a drink on the 2nd. 9th is out for me. Edit: actually, the 2nd is good for me for dinner.

    [MELB] Dinner at Rumi

    The Alderman (just a block or two up from Rumi) has a reasonable selection (maybe a dozen or so?) of whiskeys from memory... Not sure what I'll be doing on the first, or whether I will have any money. But probably keen for a drink afterwards, considering I live pretty close by :P
