Hello Lionel,

Thanks for sharing the presentation.  FWIW, if you want to follow out the links 
in the presentation, the Wayback Machine is your friend.

Curious to see how you do with SATA drives.  I had bad experiences with the 
T1000 that I had purchased from Mr. Bill, and most of my SAS based equipment has 
stayed that way.  Too cheap to purchase a bunch of SAS drives, I have a lot of 
my data NFS mounted from an OpenIndiana box sharing out several Tb of space.
