Sheesh dude, that's a buttload O storage. How much of it's actually already filled?
Speakin of porn empires, a software engineer buddy of mine was in between gigs a few yrs back, and bored, so he wrote a spider program and used it to rip everything from a porn site as fast as his connection could stream it all back to his server.
He'd set up one of their 2-3 day $1.99 trial subscription deals then rip everything they had and end his subscription. He amassed quite a collection
These days he's out in Cali. rakin in the big bucks workin on a 3D for Blu-Ray project.
This is the same cat that turned me on to Linux initially and I really miss havin him around, he was a hoot.
When he 1st went to work for his company it was for an interesting audio/video over the net in real time project that I'm amazed the news agencies never bought in to. At the time (5+yrs) ago the computer needed to handle it all was like $20k in hardware but it sure seemed like a winner for news agencies to be able to eliminate the lag time they have in across the globe interviews where that lag leads to lotsa pregnant pauses in the interviews
What would be the simplest way to set up the capability for each machine in my network to share each others HDs? I've looked at several ways to do so and wonder what would be the best usin the KISS method as a parameter? For those like myself who are softwarily challenged the 2-S's at the end of that are really beneficial
On to a totally different topic all together. I came across an interesting TED talks show last night on how the Stuxnet virus was engineered and implemented to take down Irans uranium enrichment facility hardware. I found it fascinating as well as frightening.
The presenter finished up in saying the same basic building blocks of that viral approach were likely to become the next wave of cyber terror and could be used to similarly take down power generation plants, govt and private networks, financial networks and even the 'net itself on a national level. I could certainly see how this type of action could be hugely detrimental to overall security on a global scale
