The studio now has four of the Seagate ST8000DM004 8TB disks. The older pair ST4000DM004. So far one of the ST8000DM004 and one of the ST4000DM004 had to be full erased to recover from errors. No damage to data was noted but it appears that the logic is not powerful enough to handle moving folders …

HALO SITE DEAD

It seems that halowaypoint,com is DOA. Attempts to get into the site are met with no response except for a blank screen and no HTTP errors. Does not play like a DNS error like what happen a week ago. The link in the invitation message was also equally DOA. Clearly the rollout is not going …
