Hardware, Embedded Systems ACM's latest journal had an interesting article about RAID which suggested it might be time for triple parity raid. "How much longer will current RAID techniques persevere? The RAID levels were codified in the late 1980s; double-parity RAID, known as RAID-6, is the current standard for high-availability, space-efficient storage. The incredible growth of hard-drive capacities, however, could impose serious limitations on the reliability even of RAID-6 systems. Recent trends in hard drives show that triple-parity RAID must soon become pervasive."

You call me a GPL fascist, Linux fanboy, and I'm the troll.

I did not call you a GPL fascist, unless you were the author of it or the decision maker behind licensing of Linux kernel. I did however call you a Linux fanboy and your posts fully qualify you as one, no doubt about that.

Enjoy talking to yourself.

I have no problem with you not wanting to communicate with me, but I would suggest you extend that to all discussions about topics where you don't have anything to say. You shouldn't bash a product/company/technology just because you personally don't like it.
