Short Note About Short Posts

Still trying to overcome procrastination. Fighting the RAID form of my last computer build and will hopefully finish in a few days. Hindsight will prevent me from ever starting another build project. Just not worth it anymore.

Posts will be brief for a few more days. Then, after a few days rest, things should return to sub-normal. It's hard to maintain this level of frustration and stay focused. Later!

I don't know if you will even see this comment, since it is so far down in the post now, but you should do a post on why you're building a machine with RAID verses the standard install method. I'd like to know. Me personally, I just go with the standard "put a drive in and install everything". Then, if I have an extra drive or external, do a backup. RAID just seems like too much trouble for a home machine. But there again, our home server is doing a RAID thing (I think) but Windows Home Server set it up by itself.

Excellent subject. Will work on it. RAID seems to be tougher in older SCSI machines. New technology like SATA RAID Arrays are much simpler as far as setup and maintenance. So many important variables in SCSI and it can be tricky. Many factors come into play i.e., hardware interface, SCSI flavor or version, inside or outside Windows, etc. Will work on posting about it and let you know
