WebOS and no bookmarks?

Palm Pre

Quick tip I discovered by accident: If you're running 2.1 and you have the issue where no bookmarks show in the bookmark viewer (yet you know they're there), cycle your wifi (or possibly even just radio).

Blam, there's your bookmarks.

Nerd Stuff

At work, we run a pretty sizable EMC SAN. Recently, I was faced with having to move some VM disks around to get one specifically onto a 15k RAID group, but fell into the age-old trap of not leaving enough free space on all RG's so that there is "scratch" space to move things around.

I borrowed a cheapass "NAS" box that was new and yet to be used by another group.]

This story is about my journey with implementing iSCSI. These are their stories.
