All the major hard drive companies make claims about their reliability of their drives, but when they are forced to perform in a datacenter the results are startling. Backblaze, a cloud backup company, has tens of thousands of hard drives in their datacenter to store their customers’ data. They use a wide array of hard drives from various manufacturers for their storage, and have released their results this year. Like last year’s results, HGST, a Hitachi brand, reigns supreme.
I was on a recent road trip from Boston to Montréal and back, and I stopped in several small towns and parks along my route. These stops included places in the States of New Hampshire, Vermont and New York. The route I took was not the quickest, but that was never my intention. My intention was to see some places I have never seen before.
One of the most interesting places was the small village of Derby Line, Vermont, which borders Stanstead, Quebec. The two appear to be one town, but with the US and Canadian border running through them. Unfortunately, it appears in the past decade border control has become tighter with most of the streets that connect each other closed or having limited access. The border enforcement has caused all types of confusion with the locals from both sides of the border of how to legally cross the street without being arrested.
Welcome to the all new Paskino.com!
I have had a presence on the internet since 1995 with my old brainiac.com days. Every few years it is important to update the site to reflect my ever changing life, new web standards and to clean the old and replace it with the new.
I have not updated the site’s overall look in 10 years, so it is a big change. The design is more simplistic and focuses more on my photography, places I have been and life events. The design is mobile friendly too!
There might be some glitches, but I will have them worked out in short order. If you find any, please let me know.
