Programming is Gardening, not Engineering

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/04/12

Wow, I wish I had read this a long time ago, like in 2003 when it was written:

Pragmatic Programmers Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas talk with Bill Venners about a gardening metaphor for software development, the reasons coding is not mechanical,and the stratification of development jobs.

MegaRAID “Mark Drive as Missing” and “Make Drive Offline” do not always work: your bay needs to be a hotplug one.

Had a hard time finding out what to do to remove a failing drive as the MegaRAID “Mark Drive as Missing” and “Make Drive Offline” didn’t give any results.

So I did as Kirus did: just pull out the from the RAID enclosure drive. Apparently the Sharkoon QuickPort Intern 3-bay isn’t a hotplug one.
