    Ward Dossche is away on vacation right now.. and just as murphy
    insists, as soon as Ward left home, his system decided to ignore the
    basics of good behaviour (well, as far as Fidonet Systems go ).
    
    Luckily though he must have been anticipating the worst, since the
    Zone 2 segment for this week's nodelist did indeed arrive in my
    inbound directory.  What gremlin Ward left watching his system is
    unknown, but luckily for our Zone 2 friends, it looks like his system
    will indeed produce a difference file and nodelist on Thursday night.

                                  The Old School Toolbox
    
                           By Richard Webb, 1:116/901
    
                Data storage, the Future, Archiving, etc.
    
    So here I am, the old curmudgeon with tendencies toward luddite in
    a profession where thinking about such issues is important.  In
    brushing up against the topic I find myself listening in on some
    fascinating discussions between folks who work in other fields as
    well. Of course we sysops have always had an interest in backup and
    archival strategies, etc for obvious reasons.  
    
    Not just are these issues important to folks in the audio and video
    industries as well as sysops, but they're quickly becoming the most
    important issue in the information technology world, tied for first
    place with security.  IN fact, they're both two halves of the same
    issue, data integrity and access.  
    
    This wrestling match has always been with us, but as the types of
    data we wish to preserve vary more we're left with some even larger
    questions.  Back in the days when Fidonet was that place to connect
    for average folks you had essentially two choices, other than raid
    hard drive arrays.  They were piles of floppy disks, and tapes of
    various types.   Then came zip drives, jaz drives, etc.  
    
    No matter what the media you still have the same wrestling matches
    with data integrity and cataloging.  Not just do you need to back
    up that data, but then you need to know which version of it you've
    got where.  This is extremely important for medical institutions
    and similar facilities where the integrity of patient/customer
    records is the driving factor.
    
    I never had the money for a raid array back then, and I did
    understand about the need for off site storage, a lesson I failed
    to heed just before hurricane Katrina much to my sorrow.  I will
    always wish I had the research for a book I'd been working on. 
    some of the interviews conducted for that research were with people
    who had died.  I can't go interview them again.  That zip file with
    all that data wouldn't fit on a 1.4 mb floppy.  
    
    So what does the pro who works with large files whose integrity
    must be retained do?  In my professional life I sidestep the
    question in many ways.  If I'm doing recording for a client, and
    not sound for immediate use such as broadcast or for the audience
    I deliver the work to the client on regular hard drives, and hope
    that he migrates that data soon enough to ensure that he can indeed
    get it from that hard drive.  If he waits to long it might not spin
    up properly.  Then he's got the problems of cataloging and
    archival.  We'll come back to this question later, but first let's
    look at physical media.  Of course I"m looking at this primarily
    from the point of view of someone in my profession.  Often the
    files we need to move from place to place are quite large.
    
    What about cd-r and dvd-r disks?  Home burned cd and dvd disks are
    not as robust as those created from glass masters at the factory,
    and not as reliable.  Also, consider 24 tracks of high resolution
    audio, 44.1 khz 16 bit or higher sampling rate.  Let's look at 44.1
    khz 16 bit for an example.  That's the sampling rate of that
    commercial cd of the latest Stones album you might have bought.  So
    consider that stones album, mixed and mastered in stereo.  If you
    were to capture the tunes on that Stones cd as .wav files you'll
    need 5.5 mb per track minute, or 11 mb/minute for each song you
    wished to capture.  So take a song, 24 tracks of audio for this one
    song, each recorded at 44.1 khz 16 bit.  Again, 5.5 mb/track
    minute.  The song runs for 4 minutes.  
    That 4 minute song needs 528 mb of storage for just the 24 tracks
    of audio data, not counting the additional data inherent in
    broadcast .wav files which enable them to be synchronized later. 
    so let us say that the client recorded 10 songs, and that's the
    average length of each, some more, some less, but they average 4
    minutes in length each.  
    you need at least 5 gb now to store it.  Quite the undertaking for
    cd-r or dvd-r disks.  
    
                    All backed up and no place to  go
    
    Picture yourself as the archivist for CBS records, or WArner
    brothers, or Disney studios, or, God forbid, the Smithsonian or
    library of congress.  You can back this stuff up, but unless you
    migrate it to newer forms of storage, or retrieve that backed up
    data occasionally you can't be sure those usb drives spin, or those
    cd-r disks are readable.   Then there's the obsolescence issue. 
    Jaz drives anyone?   
    
    Those portable hard drives might not spin when you need them, so
    you better check 'em out occasionally if you really need what they
    contain.  Cd-r and dvd media might not play a couple years down the
    road, as some have found.  If it won't "play" you can't get the
    data it contains.  If you want to be sure you can access it, keep
    'er spinnin' and make 'er part of a raid array.  
    
    So now we bring this home to the BBS world.  Drop me a routed mail,
    tell me about your backup and archival strategies.  After all,
    you've got those message bases, many of which are just chatter and
    archival is meaningless, but some you might wish to preserve in
    perpetuity.  Then there are your carefully assembled files
    collections, bbs configuration files, special batch and .cmd files,
    scripts, software key files, etc.  We'll talk more about them, and
    some of the thoughts of the pros from the world of the heavy
    hitters in data storage and archival over the next few columns. 
    But first, a little history lesson next time.
    
    A friend used to have a little statement in his email sig file
    which stated that the amazing thing about data storage technology
    was the ability to lose larger and larger amounts of data at one
    fell swoop, a wrong command line, or other such "accidents."  A
    scary thought, isn't it?  So we'll look into the past (this is the
    old school toolbox after all) then hopefully have some anecdotes
    from today's fidonet sysops to share in future columns in this
    series.

    PyBlosxom Blog Software
    =======================
    My blog is progressing ... 
    
    With a new update by the author of Pyblosxom, comments are now
    working as they should..  that allowed me to dump a php script on the
    actual blog articles.
    
    You can check out the blog here, http://www.filegate.net/blog/
    
    I'm still using the php script in a few static places on the
    blog..but I may remove that later.
    
    If you're running linux and want to run Pyblosxom, get the latest
    version here:
    
    http://pyblosxom.bluesock.org/download/pyblosxom-1.5rc3.tar.gz
    
    Pyblosxom is a python language program, so if you have python
    installed, it may work fine for you even if you are not running
    linux (I should try that on my windows laptop ).
    
    I'm playing with a number of 'flavours' (Wordpress calls them
    themes), and playing with developing some of my own.  You can see
    some of them if you type this into your location bar of your browser:

    Going dairy free doesn't have to be horrible.  It's something we have
    to deal with over here since my daughter and at least two of her sons
    can't touch the stuff.  I also benefit from not using as many dairy
    products as I used to, that's for sure.
    
    This recipe is great for who are sensitive to dairy and gluten as
    well.
    
    Ice Cream Pie
    =========================
    Ingredients:
    Almond pie shell (below)
    Almond Ice Cream (below)
    about 2 cups fresh blueberries, sprinkled with sugar
    
    Ingredients for the Pie Crust:
     1 1/2 cups slivered almonds, ground
     3 tablespoons olive oil
     1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
     3 tablespoons brown sugar
     1 tsp. grated lemon zest
     2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
     1/8 tsp nutmeg
     1 Tbsp. water
    
    Preheat the oven to 350F
    
    Grind the almonds in a food processor or blender.  Add the other
    ingredients and mix well.  Press into the bottom of a deep dish pie
    tin.  Bake the pie crust for about 7 minutes.  Don't let it over
    brown.  Cover, cool and put the crust in the freezer to get it really
    cold.
    
    Ingredients for the Almond Milk Ice Cream
    =========================================
     1 qt. unsweetened Almond milk (they sell sweetened and unsweetened)
     5 eggs
     1 Tablespoon sugar (some people use none)
     1 teaspoon vanilla extract  (we use one from the health food store,
       that has no alcohol since the kids can't have whatever they use
       for the alcohol)
    
    Beat the eggs until really fluffy, add the sugar and beat some more. 
    Heat the almond milk to warm, then beat it into the eggs - keep
    beating so the eggs don't curdle.  Cook the mixture on low heat,
    stirring constantly until it hits 170F and coats the wooden spoon
    your stirring it with.  Chill the mix in the refrigerator, covered,
    over night.  Put the mix into an electric ice cream maker to freeze.. 
    Let freeze over night until firm.  If you don't have an ice cream
    maker, you can just freeze it in the mixing bowl and then beat it to
    death with a strong mixer the next morning, and then freeze it again.

    ===================
    Assembling the pie:
    ===================
    Take the ice cream out of the freezer for about an hour to soften it
    up some. Place half the softened ice cream in the chilled pie shell,
    spreading it evenly to the edges.  Top with about 3/4's of  berries.
    Cover the berries with the rest of the ice cream, and sprinkle the
    remaining berries on top.
    
    Cover the ice cream pie with plastic wrap, and freeze for about 5-6
    hours until firm.

    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor, with the help of
    Richard Webb 1:116/901 (Old School ToolBox), and Sean Dennis 1:18/200
    (The Slightly Crusty Sysop).  If you have an idea for a column or a
    series of articles, please contact me :)
    
    New! 
    MailingList subsriptions via 
    www.filegate.net // lists / ?p=subscribe
    but of course you can always link into your uplink and use 
    Tick or a tick compatible program.
    
    Where to Send Your Articles
    
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth when
    there is a sparcity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd MUCH rather
    you sent in material... lacking that, I will fill these issues 
    with my meanderings and thoughts and hopefully we will grow into 
    something of consequence here :)
    
    Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    
    Email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net 
    Fidonet attach: Janis Kracht at 1:261/38 Modem: 607-655-5652 
    1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555  via binkp or telnet mailer  
    (If you are using routed fidonet mail, don't send articles as routed 
    attaches.  They will fail somewhere along the path before getting here.
    Send them instead direct to filegate.net).
       
    Standard binkp port only supports BinkP (24554).
    
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!
    
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
     
    To send reviews or recipes to the Food section, email or netmail Janis
    as above.
    
    Email address for submissions to Dr.Debug:
      To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to:
          drdebug @  filegate.net 
      or post in the fidogazette echo!  :)
    
      To send a listing to the FidoGazette bbslist, email your 
      listing to:
        bbslist @ filegate.net 
      or post it in the fidogazette echo!
