We all know how easy it is to set up software RAID1 during install… but what if you had to do it afterward?  Say for instance you only had one HDD at the time and decided later on you wanted to add a second drive and make it into a Mirror.  Well, this tutorial will show you how to add a second drive of the same size (very important that they be the same size!) and create a RAID on Ubuntu 16 after installation.

Free Secure Email Certificate from Comodo

Hello Again folks,

Almost everyone today has an email account. Be it for business or personal correspondence, security can be an issue. Email itself, inherently, is insecure. Although you can connect to your email provider over TLS or SSL, that does not mean your email is encrypted, it just means your connection to the server is.

The Wonderful World of Linux

Its been a while since I made a post to my blog. I really should keep up with it. So in an attempt to do so, I decided to write about what I am currently engulfed in: The Wonderful World of Linux. In my life time I have used all major operating systems. In my younger years, before college, I was raised on Mac, up to OS 9… I never got into OS X as by the time it was released, I had already switched over to Windows. Throughout College I mainly worked on Windows and started to dabble in Linux, mind you back then they didn’t have the amount of flavours you have today. Redhat was the major flavour being taught to techs in college. Debian existed, but wasn’t as widely used. There was Corel Linux, which I had dabbled in just before College which was released in 1999 (The year I started at Algonquin College).

VMWare ESXi 6 vs Windows Hyper-V

I just spent the weekend reformatting my home server from Windows 2012R2 Data Center running Hyper-V to VMWare ESXi 6. Now installation issues aside, as ESXi can be very picky, ESXi seems to be exactly what I am looking for as far as virtualization goes.

Do people really fall for this stuff?

If you have an email account, then chances are, you’ve received one of these, or multiples.  And more the likely, a few different variants of the same thing.  This latest one though, made me laugh… How could ANYONE possibly fall for this?
