More than 100! Supposedly some of the Coney Island designers were involved back in 1912. I took this with the Sigma 12-24mm on the K-1. That's a guy from the same walkabout photoshoot in the foreground, nice bloke, but can't remember his name.
I had no idea it was so old. It was a very good day out.

Both cities are regularly top five in The Economist best places in the world to live (I think Melbourne actually topped it five times in a row or some such), but the price of housing is a definite negative.


Can't say Munich is affordable either, though.

Thanks, FMF, I didn't realize it was eight years in a row for Melbourne, and still number two.

My wife and I loved Munich and thought it was one of the places in the world we'd like to live if not for where we are now.

American teenagers would be nuts not to go as exchange students there, the legal drinking age is sixteen!

I'm being facetious, but what was genuinely touching was the sight of a grandfather and grandson drinking wheat beer together in the English Garden, and it was clearly a normal thing, not an obligation on the part of either. This is a culture where generations genuinely get on and like each other. It's not like Australian/UK/US society where it can be considered uncool for a sixteen year old to spend a day or evening enjoying the company of old folk - social suicide!

Yeah, that's what I'm saying, Dave, the difference is they weren't just tolerating each other! I remember as an 'eighth grade' student, asking my mum to drop me off at school from around the corner. If a goodbye kiss had been witnessed, there would've been no end to the ribbing from my mates!

The previous post was my first on this, or any forum, from a computer that doesn't run Windows.

Nope.

Racer just crossed into the Linux Zone.

I set out to revive a computer I built about ten years ago, to run as a NAS for keeping my photos, the post processed versions, my ever growing music collection and some documents. That nearly came to be, until the original power supply went legs up, and took the motherboard with it. I tried a used mobo off of eBay, and another power supply, but never got past the initial boot and formatting of the drives, with Windows or various flavors of Linux.


So I bought a spankin' new ASUS board and an Intel processor, and 64 gigs of RAM.


ASUS Prime Z370-AII motherboard
Intel Core i5-8400 6 Core Processor
64 gigs RAM
(1) 1 Terabyte WD Blue Hard Drive
(4) 4 terabyte WD Red NAS hard drives
Ubuntu 18.04 OS

I actually started out with an older version of Ubuntu, which was a bit clunky, and couldn't seem to work quite right. So I updated the OS to The Bionic Beaver.

No kidding.

The national bird of Canada, eh?

So here I am, Racer is fixing to ditch Windows.

Well, at least some anyway.

I do find it interesting how Windows like the interface is. Much more GUI driven than the previous version of Ubuntu I had. And I am learning the command line thing called Terminal. A tool that Windows has largely forsaken.

An extremely powerful tool.

Oh why, Windows, why?




My desktop looked like this for about, um, a minute.

Now it is sporting one of my photographs, this one:




Still using a 15" CRT monitor until I can swing a new flatscreen.





Bye!

What an exciting time for you! I've done lots of Linux over the years, especially early on, but I only use it and deal with it on servers these days. I manage three of them, web proxies, at work.

Windows certainly uses the terminal. Powershell has revolutionized Windows sysadmin in the last decade. So much so that when you install Windows server (or ten thousand instances of them at the same time) you're asked if you need to bother with the GUI or not. If it's just part of a cluster, it might as well be the 'Core' installation, forget the graphics.

Good man!

So much to learn. So much power. Before you know it, you'll be compiling Gentoo to run on your machine...

While you're at it, try this fun command*:

Code:
sudo rm -rf /

*okay, don't actually...

sudo means superuser do, giving you root privileges, pretty much making you omnipotent (see here)

rm is remove

-rf are options for rm, -r is recursive meaning all files and directories within a directory, and -f is force meaning no prompting to delete

/ is your root directory, i.e. everything

So, in theory, this deletes everything...

Thanks!

So, I want to set up the RAID on those Western Digital Reds. Would either of you have any experience setting up a RAID on Linux? I have a peer to peer network in my house and shop, mostly on Cat 5 cable, simple unmanaged network hubs, and all behind a hardware firewall. I want to be able to access the RAID on this new Ubuntu box from any connected computer on the network. At this point most machines are Windows units, one on NT, one on 2000, one on XP Pro, and a PC and three laptops on 7 Pro.

I'm thinking RAID 5 or RAID 10.

Any tips, tricks, suggestions?

Oh, and if my experience thus far continues, Ubuntu will be my new operating system standard.

No experience with RAID... But within that, my understanding of what you want to do is to have files on your Linux box that you can access from other machines?
