I continue to do a post mortem on my experiments with vdo for deduplication and compression on a linux volume and I’m really surprised I’m having this level of an issue with it. There are no reports of problems, and you’d think more than just me are trying it out right now. I know… Read More »
Well, my short lived experiment is over. I’ve had nothing but corruption and/or data loss and/or crap have to reinstall everything moments thanks to a simple ‘create an array with VDO on it’.

So I don’t like to toot my own horn at work too much.
Recently, there was a price drop + Prime day sale for the Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch in one package for a reasonable price. Previously I purchased the Playstation VR because of it’s price point and working with my existing PS 4 system. I thought I’d give a quick comparison of the two, because there are… Read More »
