Sure, I'll take it...

Your documentation is welcome, as long as you provide some background info on what you're documenting... perhaps I should blush, but I'm not even sure what an LSI device is, exactly. =) Glad you've found the wiki useful! --Jimbo 08:11, 6 April 2006 (EDT)

Goodness, no reason to blush. I hope this material isn't too obscure. It seemed to me that since your site has search engine presence, the documentation might be found and improved more readily if it were parked here. Thank you for accomodating me - for the good of the community and all that! Ninereasons 14:26, 6 April 2006 (EDT)
I wanted to assure you in passing that, I have no connection whatever with LSI Logic or megarc, other than as a user who found FreeBSD support of these cards a bit scanty. I was frustrated by the fact that it took me a good part of two days to find out what the alarm codes meant, and how to bring a replacement drive online without rebooting. In fact, I thought at first that the alarm was coming from the motherboard, because the drive would not rebuild, and the machine would not boot while the volume was degraded. I was within a hair's breadth of trying to replace the board! So, I'm the one who should blush. Ninereasons 13:33, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

Wouldn't bother me a bit if you WERE connected to LSI Logic or megarc, as long as your documentation was useful, pertinent, and not full of "omg you gots to have teh megarc it is teh K-RAD!!!1" :) --Jimbo 13:44, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

so....what is an LSI?

i don't deal with storage, so i've no idea...

"LSI Logic" is a manufacturer/marketer of consumer product controller chips and storage devices. Ninereasons 13:10, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

machine names and style consistency

As long as the machine name stays consistent within a single article, there is no one single machine name we particularly want in every single article... at least, not at this time. If we were going to standardize every single article to a single machine name, we'd probably want to pick something fictitious anyway.

If you come across an article that refers to ph34r in one block and samizdata or oyabun (or whatever) later on - and it's not supposed to be an article about two different machines in the first place - please jump right on in and sanitize it. But otherwise leave 'em like it is please. =) --Jimbo 20:36, 16 May 2006 (EDT)

Alrighty. Ninereasons 11:17, 17 May 2006 (EDT)

btw, thought you'd be interested to know

I'm getting about 20 or so search engine hits per month on "megarc", so it would seem your articles are serving the community well. =) --Jimbo 10:25, 25 May 2007 (EDT)

I'm glad to hear that, Jimbo. Thanks for letting me know. Ninereasons 17:26, 15 August 2007 (EDT)
