PowerEdge-raid-recoveryI really hadn’t had a lot of experience using HP servers, so I have to say that I really didn’t have an opinion at the start. Certainly, back in my early career when I worked at another company, we did use Compaq servers. Those were actually pretty robust machines, so I assume that when they purchased HP, the servers would be equally as good. Unfortunately, we didn’t realize that their support would be so bad if the raids failed.

Of course, we ended up learning on the fly that HP is not exactly the best when it comes to a situation that requires real professional RAID recovery. I ended up on the telephone with a couple of guys from India and …


dell-data-reocveryI do think that more people need to focus on the importance of keeping their raid servers in very good repair. This is key because obviously raid servers are a data storage solution that is typically focused on really high end programs that are important to the organization. You are definitely not going to be very comfortable if you find yourself in any kind of scenario that requires professional Dell RAID recovery help, so why not start planning for that potential right now.

I hear again and again in my job from administrators that tell me that one of the best things that they have ever done is set up a maintenance program for their raid servers. They tell me that this …


IBM RAID Recovery

ibm-raid-recoveryI think we really had too many situations lately in which we were left hung out to dry by our server manufacturers. For a while there, I began to practically be best friends with a couple of the RAID recovery technicians at our local server repair company. I felt like I was talking to them everyday and I managed to build some pretty good relationships that way, but it shouldn’t have been the case in the first place because our server company really dropped the ball. I know that a lot of people talk up IBM servers as really being some of the best kind of servers to purchase, but I have to say that our experience with them has been pretty …


psRecently, I overheard some programmers talking about creating a simple starfield simulation for a screen saver module. You probably have seen one of these before. The stars begin clustered in the center of the screen and move out toward the edges, producing an effect similar to what you might see while looking out of a spaceship window.

The programmers were talking about the best way to plot the path of the stars, and the general consensus was that it should be done using trigonometry and would require a great deal of floating-point calculation. Each star would occupy a given point and traverse a course which would be defined by triangulation using trigonometric functions.

These programmers knew something about trigonometry and immediately understood


mcThe application itself may also test to see if a math coprocessor is installed. During initialization, it tests for the math coprocessor in the same way the BIOS does. In fact, it is becoming more common for applications themselves to test for the presence of the math coprocessor as well as other parameters, and then configure themselves automatically to operate with the hardware that is installed.

If no math coprocessor is present, the CPU will perform the math calculations using lengthy software instructions that emulate the math coprocessor’s built-in functions. While the emulation may occur within the operating system, it is more likely to occur within the application program. Thus, when a math coprocessor instruction is encountered, the application will execute the


There are many people that have tried using raised pillows in order to avoid snoring. People have also used surgical means believing that correcting a deviated septum ought to help with noiseless breathing or sleeping. You may even have heard of people seeking help with homeopathy thinking that it help them. However, none of these efforts included an actual device which is why it is called a snore mouthpiece. This device is inserted into your mouth in order to prevent snoring. It works by helping your air passage a little open so that you may breathe easily.

Naturally, you may feel that this will keep your mouth open while sleeping. It might or might not be the case. What it definitely will do is allow you to have an excellent night’s sleep and it would all be without disturbing your partner. The snore mouthpiece may very well be worth a try and it has certainly proved to be a winner with so many heavy snorers. In fact, so many testimonials are f the family members of a snorer because they are that grateful to have found a way to get their partner to stop snoring. It is no surprise that these devices are increasing in popularity.

aosmpThere Are Many Devices To Use As Your Snore Mouthpiece

There are specific reasons for snoring and the snoring mouthpiece was created to solve these problems. But it is better to read a few real snoring mouthpiece reviews before using such device. There are numerous snoring causes. The main problem is extra tissue (including the soft palate, uvula and tonsils) which relaxes and vibrates against the back of the throat during breathing, creating quite a bit of noise. Those people who have the habit of sleeping on their back can develop the tendency of jaws to fall back




Skin tags are common growths that look like tiny, soft balloons of hanging flesh. While unsightly, they are completely benign, and a single person can have anywhere from one to hundreds of individual skin tags. Men and women are equally likely to develop them. Skin tags are typically about 2 mm-5 mm in diameter, but may grow as large as a grape (1 cm in diameter) or even a fig (5 cm in diameter). They are most commonly found on the base of the neck, armpits, eyelids, groin folds, buttock folds, and under the breasts. Of these, the neck and the armpits are the most common.

Skin tags are believed to develop as a result of friction, either friction between skin …


War and the pity of war is a hefty, Homeric subject and Malick handles it superbly. As an action director, with an eye to the epic view, he has a marvellous modulation of suspense and space. He captures the nerve-racking fatigue of war as well as the breakneck fast-forward. There is also, complicatingly, the opposite pull of what nature can mean when it is anatomised in this paradisal Pacific context: the gorgeous range of colour in the plumage of a parrot (vibrant like the eye of childhood discovered all over again), the skitter of bats, the cuteness of tree kangaroos. All of this is shot radiantly, like a reproach to the very idea of action. Malick’s cinematographer John Toll is a master.


dmMining companies are using optimization techniques to save literally tons of hours and money. These techniques so far are centered around expenditures.

Expenditures that are related to time rather than to tonnage or production require careful thought, but there is a clear rule that allows you to decide which should be included:

Any expenditure that would stop if mining stopped must be included in one of the costs input to Four-D, and conversely, any expenditure that would not stop if mining stopped must be excluded.

The reasoning behind this is that, when the optimizer adds a block to the pit outline, it may effectively extend the life of the mine. If it does, the extra costs that would occur as a result


The Matrix, which explores the idea that our reality is simply a shrewdly manipulated computer program, was 1999’s biggest film prior to May 19 – The Phantom Menace launch day – yet its dank sensibility (not to mention its dread of computers) in some ways represents an anti-Lucasian voice. (It’s not a lone voice, either; also released in May was The Thirteenth Floor, based on Daniel Galouye’s sci-fi opus Simulacron 3, which finds disaffected present-day scientists escaping into a digitally idealized vision of 1937 L.A.)

existenzerBut The Matrix, for all its dire imaginings, finally succeeds thanks to its kinetic computer-enhanced fight sequences. It also gives the perverse impression that living obliviously in a virtual environment is not so bad, especially when
