Hoping Graham Norton is on top form tonight for #EurovisionSongContest. Most of the songs will undoubtedly be awful, but it could be an impressive looking show.

Following on from my recent tweet, a search for the model number now returns a QNAP compatibility list page that mentions the WD120EFAX-68UNTN0 that runs firmware 81.00A81. I hope I can get hold of some of the drives soon.
Disappointing Final Seasons
Monday 13th May, 2019 21:24
I was very disappointed with the series finale of Lost when it aired almost a decade ago. Feelings of anger and frustration would return years later whenever I remembered how bad that last season was compared to what I'd hoped would happen.

And now it looks like Game of Thrones is doing the same thing. I can't help think that I'd have written things differently. Fan theories have come up with better story arcs and plot twists. And then there's the rushed pace of this sort final season. Even with the feature length episodes, it feels like they're trying to squeeze two season's worth of content into one. With one final episode to wrap things up, I suspect I'm going to be upset and unhappy. Hopefully it won't annoy me for the next decade.

What I want from Windows: updates that don't break things; ability to expand/shrink a RAID 5 volume without third party software. What I need: WHQL network drivers that don't cause a BSOD. What I'll get: hardware accelerated text in Terminal and a Linux Kernel.

Have Western Digital finally released a 12TB Red drive? WD120EFAX is listed here as a 5400rpm drive, but it's not in their datasheet and you can't buy it from their website: https://t.co/yizuALS2gO
