Using Camera RAW with Linux.

These days the vast majority of my photos are taken with a camera phone, but it’s nice to know that I can still use my fancy DSLR camera with my Linux computers when I want to.

Connecting my camera to a Linux box is no issue — it’s this pesky Camera RAW file format that I’ve been worrying about. But once again, Linux has you covered…

QNAP TS-410: My first NAS.

I bought my first storage array in 2004, a LaCie 1TB “Bigger Disk Extreme” that failed almost exactly a year later — mere days after its warranty expired, to be exact. Unbeknownst to me, this bigger disk was actually four 250GB hard drives strung together. One of them went down, and brought down the whole thing with it.

I’m really hoping that history doesn’t repeat itself here…
