  • Watching the speech I felt he’s working for a better deal for workers.

    But then:

    O’Brien rejected criticism of his appearance at the convention.

    He said: “I don’t care about getting criticized. Its an honor to be the first Teamster in our 121-year history to address the Republican national convention. Think about this. The Teamsters are doing something correct if the extremes in both parties think I shouldn’t be on this stage,” he continued.

    Sounds sus, like he’s not getting that unionism is a very left if not extreme left phenomena and that unions which didn’t understand this ended up folding or enslaving their members to the fascist that they helped elect.

    I don’t understand how this follows from what I said. 🤔 I called for increasing redundancy to compensate for the increased risk of failure. That’s the purpose of redundancy. Reducing the time spent dealing with troubles. Unless you consider replacing a disk to be a significant time spent. To me it isn’t because it’s fairly trivial in my setup. Perhaps it’s more work in other setups.

    Depending on the prices, you may even be able to add significantly more redundancy by using recertified disks, potentially reducing the risk even more than running new drives. E.g. 4-disk redundancy vs 2-disk for the same price. Running a significantly more redundant setup not only decreases the probability of an array failure but it should also reduce the mechanical load each disk experiences over time which should further decrease failure risk.

    My second machine uses such disks. They work fine. They’re a bit more expensive than recertified datacenter WDs from SPD though. I can run a 48TB array with 4-disk redundancy with such disks from SPD for the price of the equivalent 48TB array made of shucked external WDs with 2-disk redundancy. The 4-disk redundant system will be more performant. I’m going to use my shucked WD array till it croaks but I’d be buying recertified replacements as the disks die.

    That’s why the extra redundancy. The probability of 2 or 3 disks failing should be significantly lower than 1 disk failing. I currently run 2-disk redundancy. If 1 disk fails, I’d replace it. If a second disk fails while the replacement is being resilvered, I’d shit a brick, stop the resilver and make an incremental backup to ensure I won’t lose data if another disk fails due to the resilver load. Then I’d proceed with the resilver. RAID is not backup and the extra redundancy is there to reduce the probability to have to spend time restoring backups. Increased redundancy can compensate for individual disk reliability.
