Just finished loading up the tape library for work. 24 Tapes, each 18TB, about 20TB after compression. Makes about 480 TB of storage in there. About the size of 8 Pizza Cartoons. Next Step: Calibrating/Media Init of the tapes, which takes two hours per tape. That's gonna run over the weekend. And monday I can run the script that makes them all automagically encrypted.

All in all, not much work for half a petabyte of backups.

MyPaint is a Free and Open Source art software that focuses on distraction-free digital painting, with lots of keyboard shortcuts and a minimalist expanding canvas. It's great for sketching, but I've also seen some truly beautiful professional works done with it!

It's available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X :D

Check it out, and please share your #MyPaintArt creations!


I'm writing docs for a two-tiered cache library at work and I named the two tiers "top cache" and "bottom cache", because that's how it should be.
