I’m starting a new category called “Personal” on this blog. I find it pretty boring just talking about tech related / howto stuff all the time. Seeing as how it’ JonHoweOnline.com and not JonHowesTechOnlyBlog.com I’m going to act accordingly.
Anyways, I’ve been up to some pretty cool stuff lately. Yesterday I found a small (20GB) hard drive next to my monitor… I’m not quite sure how or when it got there, but I realized instantly that I needed to put it to use. a friend of mine was over the other day and asked me if I had a raid array in my computer, and at the time I didn’t. That all changed tonight…
I installed that bad boy into my computer and now I have a raid 0 (striping) array in my computer.
It was fairly easy to do, except for a fairly undocumented error having to do with not being able to have the “/boot” partition inside a raid array. Once I figured that out it was smooth sailing. If anyone knows a good hard drive benchmarking tool I’d be interested in giving it a shot.
Well, this whole not-just-tech blog thing didn’t work so well this first time… Oh well, I’ll give it another shot some time when it’s not so late.
