Years ago a buddy of mine called me and said he was going to open a dive bar in midtown, and asked me to do the website for it. This bar was Saint Danes located in Midtown Houston.

This means something other than my Raid 5 hard disk array. This has lead me to consider Tape as a cost effective backup solution. In this article I explore the various options for Tape backup and their associated costs.
Its no secret that I am not a big fan of Windows 8. 20+ years of innovation thrown out the door, because somebody at Microsoft wanted to be cool. Here is how Microsoft could Redeem themselves with Windows 9.
