Does anyone know of a setup like JBOD but with some kind of parity? Or maybe something that uses erasure coding that is appropriate for a NAS box?

I'm outgrowing RAID and am just looking for something that is more flexible and faster to rebuild.

ZFS is almost what I'm looking for, but from what I've read it isn't easy to add new drives to existing arrays.

Feeling overwhelmed here, but I know I'm ready to step out of the RAID comfort zone, ha. Any advice? :)

Pretty sure Twitter is about to feel the wrath of fascism. How dare they impinge on the American right to disseminate lies and other blatant bullshit. Bald eagles and freedom and shit...

"The cash was flowing in, and companies around Silicon Valley and beyond adopted the same basic strategy: first, grow the user base as quickly as possible without worrying about revenue; second, collect as much data as possible about the users; third, monetize that information by performing big data analytics in order to show users advertising that is narrowly tailored to their demographics and revealed interests; fourth, profit."

Why is it so difficult to make analog sticks these days? I have controllers from 20-30 years ago that work fine still, and yet we have four pairs of drifting Nintendo Switch controllers (including the newer and supposedly fixed ones).

DigiKam 7 is out, including a much improved ML model for organising photos! digikam.org/news/2020-07-19-7.

Since using Google Photos, I've wanted this feature in all the photo apps I use.

I love my dad, but it saddens me greatly to hear some of the ignorant boomer bullshit that comes out of his mouth...

Lusers unite! Despite the name, no loyalty or alignment with any software or technology are prerequisite - we welcome all! This instance is dedicated to inclusion and will not become yet another negative "tech" stereotype! For example, if you're not okay with people of different races or genders... please move along. If you think it's harmful for projects to adopt a code of conduct or ethical licence... please move along. There are plenty of other Mastodon instances out there, and I would like to have mastodon.linuxlusers.com be one of the few Linux/open-source related instances that does not reaffirm stereotypes!
