I logged into my Windows 7 machine today and had an offer from Microsoft that will allow me to upgrade to Win 10 FOR FREE when it is released at the end of July. I've been playing with the dev version at work and it's much easier to navigate than Win 8 but it still has the metro feel to it.

SanDisk is unveiling the industry's first 4TB serial attached SCSI solid state drive along with several new 12Gb/s and 6GB/s workload specific SAS SSDs. The Optimus MAX 4TB SAS SSD and Lightning Gen. II SSD product lines, announced today, are updates to SanDisk's SAS product line.
The Lightning and Optimus SAS SSDs each provide solutions to meet specific data center requirements. The Lightning line comes in 12Gb/s and 6Gb/s SAS SSD models that offer a write optimized, read optimized, or a mixed use solution. The Optimus MAX is a large capacity SAS SSD meant to replace legacy SAS hard disk drives in the data center. Read: Selecting the Right Type, Amount & Location of Flash Storage
The Optimus MAX is optimized for read intensive applications such as video streaming, web servers, and database applications; it has a 90/10 read/write mix. The Optimus MAX SSD uses 19nm eMLC NAND flash technology and includes SanDisk's Guardian Technology Platform; a suite of products designed to improve the life and reliability of flash based SSDs. Mean time between failures is estimated at 2.5 million hours by SanDisk.
Main advantages of new 4TB drives, as outlined by the company, include performance and lower power and footprint requirements, due to the higher density drives that would require fewer racks and power supplies in the data center.Coming Soon: 8TB & 16TB Optimus MAX SSDs
The goal of surpassing current HDD size limits doesn't end with the 4TB Optimus MAX. During a press meeting with SanDisk, the vendor told Tom's IT Pro that 8TB Optimus MAX drives are coming later this year and 16TB SSDs would follow in 2015.
"Customers have been looking for a way to transition their data centers from HDDs to NAND flash, but have been forced to decide between cost and performance, or give up important functionality. The Optimus MAX eliminates the need for compromises. We believe that the Optimus MAX will be a disruptive force within the storage industry, catalyzing many organizations to make the switch from their HDD-prominent data center infrastructures to SSDs," said John Scaramuzzo, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions at SanDisk.Lightning Ultra Gen II SSDs
The Lightning Ultra Gen. II SSDs are workload optimized and come with a 12Gb/s interface speed that doubles throughput of 6GB/s SAS SSD versions. There are three models within the Lightning Ultra Gen. II SSD group and each is optimized for a specific purpose.
- Lightning Ultra Gen. II SSD -- optimized for write-intensive applications such as high performance computing (HPC) and database logging and is available in 200GB, 400GB, and 800GB capacities. The SSD can handle up to 25 full capacity drive writes per day (DWPD). The SSD delivers up to 190K/100K IOPS of random read/write performance and sequential read/write speeds of up to 1000/600 MB/s 3 for write-intensive application workloads.
- Lightning Ascend Gen. II SSD -- optimized for mixed-use application workloads such as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Exchange and File Servers, On-line Transaction Processing (OLTP) and E-Commerce and is available in 200GB, 400GB, 800GB, and 1.6TB capacities. The SSD can handle up to 10 full capacity drive writes per day and delivers up to 190K/80K IOPS of random read/write performance and sequential read/write speeds of up to 1000/600 MB/s.
- Lightning Eco Gen. II SSD -- an entry-level SSD and is designed for read-intensive application workloads such as data warehousing, media streaming, and cloud computing and is available in capacities of 1TB and 1.6TB. The SSD can handle up to 3 full capacity drive writes per day and delivers up to 180K/35K IOPS of random read/write performance and sequential read/write speeds of up to 1000/500 MB/s.
The Lightning Gen. II 12Gb/s SAS SSD product family will be available for sampling with select OEM customers and through the channel in the third quarter of 2014.
The Optimus MAX SSDs and other updated Optimus drives are expected to be available through sales channels around the third quarter of 2014.

OK. I've served my 2 year contract time, now i'm gonna dump cable. I'll probably keep the internet service unless someone has an alternative suggestion. I'm looking at what I'm going to use to stream Netflix and other streaming services, local HD television stations, and give me program information so I can record stuff. Any suggestions?
Build a Media Center PC?
Gotta get me HBO so I can catch up on Game of Thrones. (It's been 2 years!)

Our transformer blew, so we had no heat or power. Water's still running and clean, and we have an indoor fireplace with a lot of wood and a bunch of packaged food so I'm not worried if it goes back out again.
Dunno how long it'll be until power gets back on for everyone, nor do I know how Desert is doing. I'll let you know more information when I can.

Thank you for your service! I really am humbled by your commitment to our nation. The fact of the matter is whether you believe(d) that the tasks you were sent to do were right or not, you did them with out question. It takes a bigger person than myself to put your lives on the line day in and day out, and for that, I salute you.
