  1. Funny. It would be a FAIL if I didn't know up from down, for sure. I was speaking in front of 400 people on stage and I pulled out my iPhone from my pocket to talk about the connected nature of the device. It happened to be upside down in my pocket and I didn't even look at the front while holding it. I'm glad to see that someone finally noticed it other than me. I've used this photo for years and laughed at it from time to time.

  4. @ravenme... I agree. I just thought your web site was so beautiful and well organized and, well, nearly perfect, that the upside-down phone leapt off the page. I've decided that it's reminiscent of the perfect flaw concept of japanese pottery.

If I could bring one thing back to the internet it would be blogs It's almost impossible now to find a blog that's not on a focused theme because that's what search engines focus on and how websites profit. But you want the opposite, a blog that never tried to focus or even thought about it.  The observations about the role of the only search engine that presently matters, Google, in the state of the blogosphere are worthy of consideration. In the discussion at Hacker News, the author was criticized a bit for saying that Google Blogger was "dead" —which itself seems a pretty fair criticism if not strictly accurate in a pedantic sense. Google basically abandoned Blogger in place years ago. Sure, our own illumineX blo…

Data Recovery from bad RAID 1 mirrored volume on Mac OS X

If you're reading this page, it's because you are trying to find good advice on how to recover data from a bad mirrored drive, also known as RAID 1 (one) on Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server 10.4 (Tiger) or 10.5 (Leopard).First, as it says on the cover of the good book, don't panic. Take a deep breath, and take your time.It's very likely that you can recover your data [NOTES 1, 2] in this situation (a probable bad disk in a RAID 1 mirror). The path to doing so is unfortunately not as obvious as it might seem, and not as obvious as it perhaps should be, but it's pretty simple.Read a whole lot about the subject before you try anything, understand what each tool does before you use it, and then read and think some more before you take the first step.Before You BeginNow, a bit of background. Typically in such a situation (a bad drive in a RAID 1 mirror) one would expect to be able to "break" the RAID 1 mirror, using the software controls you used to establish the m…
