Well, if I am not mistaken, you (Brits) also started with the Coca Cola Cherry with a hint of chilli. I could never find it. The chilli that is.

The baked beans one sounds like the sort of thing students would invent late on a Friday evening in the student union bar, or as a forfeit in a rugby club boat race.

Maybe something like this would help the DOLTS on this message board:

Glory: Other half standing in by election for Greens for local council got 14.5% of the vote and pushed Conservatives into 4th place.

Mind you Tory councillors in Cambridge have gone from being a red listed endangered species to extinction during my time here.

Grumble.
Couple of weeks ago, I inadvertently rested my arm on my 2 bay enclosure only to remove it PDQ.
It was hot enough to fry eggs on so shut it down.
Grill both front & rear but no fan. Never been a problem in the close to 2 year of use (approx. 6 hrs a day).
In ll that time, the weather was never this hot.
Checking the 4 bay ones, barely warm to the touch, grills front & rear as well as a fan.
Decided to order another 4 bay. Previous models no longer made but newer model looked good, but some of the reviews were not so good (all mainly about raid).
Unlike the previous models which had the drives vertical, side by side & in trays. the newer ones are horizontal & tray-less.
So installed the 2 drives from the 2 bay as well another another 2 new drives.
As well as drive lights, the new bays are also marked up HDD1 to 4. Nice.
Now the fun starts.
Installed drives in not only bay order but driver letter order.
I (4tb)
J & K (3tb)
L (4tb)

The new one used the same software as the old one? Or doesn't it use software, is it just a JBOD enclosure?
My 4 drive NAS uses software, so I can't take a drive out and put it in another NAS without needing reformat.

I did find the NAS to be warm earlier this year, took it apart as far as I could (which wasn't far, but thank the Goddess for canned air) and cleaned the insides, then put it back and put a 240mm fan on slow rotation onto the hotspot. That works thus far. But luckily by closing all my curtains and turning the mechanical ventilation off, my house isn't as warm as it used to be. We're again in our 4th day of 31C and inside is 24.5C.

Tried various ways to get P0-P3 to be correct but no joy.
I'm only using Orico's HW Raid Manger due to one of their reviews.
The units auto sleep is too short & apparently it cannot be changed.
The guy that left the review does a lot of video editing & said that installing the software & leaving it active prevents the drives from sleeping.
Was thinking of booting up one set of backup disks & & trying out raid.
Edit.
Sorry Jord was composing this post while you posted.
ATM, all new & old units are running as JBOD.
It was only after reading the reviews that I downloaded the software which also saw the older model (controller 2).

Given up trying to correlate port numbers to disks/drive bays.
Did think of using different manufacturers drives but sadly all 14 drives in system are Toshiba P300 drives.
Did make a "little" mistake while testing, put one of the disks in back to front & wondered why it didn't light up, so at least there's that.
Also, should I use raid for backup, the event log should help in determining what drive actually fails (software lists all drives by s/n).
On all the testing, the spin down/shutdown all followed the same way, 2-4-3-1 (drive bay lights).

Grumble, E@H has been down all day and I'm running out of work. Does anyone know what is causing this long maintenance outage?

Grumble:

Summertime - Yikes! It's hot sweaty and nasty, people get exuberant, stressed and aggressive and lots of unnecessaryness, not a good time for a winterborn . . .


Glory:

. . . yet it's also the 45th anniversary for the voyagers, still getting signal, watched "THE FARTHEST" again as every year and still always find something that I missed before.
That stuff makes may day. It's like therapy for me. A holiday from the pettys. And no matter what the fancy pride-mates do to each other here, the voyagers getting away to safer distance every second.
Let's see how much longer we get signal . . .

Thanks for that link, great way to show off the refurbishment + interesting Link budget calculation.
I know the power will go out eventually. The other question would be how long we could track them.
So eventually we could debate deviations like they did with the pioneer . . .

Yeah, I follow it on twitter but don't log in very often. So for me it comes down to about every 2-3 months or so.

Don't be stupid, that would be far too easy foe everyone.

You might have a better chance of SETI returning from the ether than WCG doing anything logical.

The Itty Bitty Machine company never has believed in open standards.

Including for them. I wouldn't be surprised if going the default route might not have got things up and running a lot quicker than their, "Triangular wheels are better than square ones because you only get three bumps per rotation" approach.
