Posted 7 Mar 2017 by SandJ
Back in the 80s when I started working in data processing, sorry, computing, sorry, IT, I was told by the Operations Manager that when sizing disc storage one should "Work out how much you need for the life of the system, allow for operating system overhead, then double it, then add a zero to the end. If you are lucky, it will last you most of the first year."

In all my experience since then, he was about right.

(P.S. don't forget space for the development environment and the test environment, the RAID overhead and then double the lot so you can have mirrored sites.)

(P.P.S. I wish I had followed his advice 30+ years ago and bought shares in disc-drive companies.)

They are stray apostrophes, roaming the air around you, looking for opportunities to leap into capitals-only sentences where they do not belong.

Keep taking the tablets and they will go away again.

Is anybody still feeling like statements such as "Sunday 24.11.2013 starting at 08:00 UTC" are too cryptic?

I didn't, until I read your explanation! All I know is I have a completed packet I can't upload that will time out during the down time. :-(
