Today, April 5, Is Pocahontas’ Wedding Anniversary From 403 Years Ago.

by Anura Guruge

This was when she got married to English John Rolfe (1585 – 1622). So Rolfe was 29 and already a widower.

Pocahontas, from what we know, was probably 18 at the time. It is believed that she may have been married before and possibly even had a daughter. Her first husband is thought to have been killed by the English in 1613.

I Get A ‘Drobo S’ 5-Bay RAID-Storage With 6TB Of WD Disks For My Photos.

by Anura Guruge

Click pictures to ENLARGE.

Click for the Amazon listing for a Drobo S. My computer guy sold me one of his previously used units for $200.

We all knew that at some point my incessant photo taking was going to take a toll on storage.

Since September 2016 I have taken nearly 19,000 pictures.

That comes to around 2,700 pictures a month — 90 pictures a day.

I was storing my pictures on my 600GB ‘D’-drive. The main issue was backing them up. I tried Amazon Photo. That was a sad joke.

Kind of realized that online, i.e., cloud-based, storage was too slow and messy.

That was when my OUTSTANDING computer guy, Shane Selling — also of drone fame — suggested I get a local RAID unit. After some research and consideration I realized that this would work and work well for my needs.

As it happened Shane, having graduated to a NAS-attached ‘Drobo 5N’, had a ‘Drobo S’ that he was no longer using which he was willing to give me for $200 — which was quite the steal. Thank YOU, Shane. He even delivered and installed it. He is very good. Outstanding.

He and I had first talked about getting two 2TB WD Black drives that would have given me 2TB of RAID.

At the last minute I ended up ordering two 3TB GREEN WDs for 3TB of RAID — the GREEN drives more energy efficient, but slower. The speed was not an issue since I don’t access the photos that often.

It has worked out. I have had the Drobo S working for about 2 weeks. So far, so good.

Very handy for I. Don’t have to worry about having to backup my files. Just store them on the Drobo.

I think the 3TB will meet my need for at least 3 years. Maybe more. In my life, 3-years is a lifetime. So I am happy with that.

Given that I have 3 unused bays, and the Drobo is genuinely plug-and-play I can easily up the capacity without any disruption.

I am real GLAD that Shane steered me to the Drobo. Just the ticket.

Hope this helps.
