D240 Disk’s story

Here is a story I’d like to share with your, my dear, reader. Couple days ago we finally found a remedy for a support case opened in Sun, which even a support engineer christened as “strange”. The problem was initially discovered whilst the root disk mirroring process was on-going. I noticed that it took flagrant […]

Rambling through Irkutsk

Here are some more photos I shoot during my short stay in Irkutsk. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to go and see the grand lake Baikal but even if I did I would’ve not seen anything since it’s still coated with ice. And as usual there was a fly in the ointment. In Moscow […]

A bigger four and a smaller one

Yeah, it sounds awkward an at very least unusual but I don’t know how to express in other words that today is my son’s birthday – he has just turned four years young. Not old but young – it’s we who are getting old. What a day! But at the same time just two days […]
