This one is a little behind thanks to some work travel, but whatever. Let’s get random.
- Ethan Banks has some great advice for bloggers looking to load up on payola from their blood, sweat, and blogging tears. You can read his article on how to work with a sponsor for your blog here.
- I love Howard’s Explainer articles, and this one on Thunderbolt doesn’t fail to impress.
- Over at El Reg there’s word of problems for the Linux kernel NTFS driver as author goes silent. I’ve used these products from time to time, and will be curious to see how it plays out.
- Cormac recently announced that the vSAN Deep Dive book has been updated for 7.0 U3.
- In PR news, Aparavi recently announced Version 2.0 of its Data Intelligence Platform.
- Speaking of press releases, Zerto recently announced version 9.5 of its platform. You can read the release here.
- Sometimes you read articles and you think “Nah, that can’t be what they did”. But then you realise they did. Nicholson has published a typically entertaining article on why running a database on a dedupe appliance is a cosmically bad idea (TM).
- In home theatre news, this article on XLR vs RCA – which cable is better? makes for good reading, particularly if you’re starting to convince yourself that you need to take things in a certain direction.
