Data Archiving Standards Need To Be Future-Proofed

storagedude writes Imagine in the not-too-distant future, your entire genome is on archival storage and accessed by your doctors for critical medical decisions. You’d want that data to be safe from hackers and data corruption, wouldn’t you? Oh, and it would need to be error-free and accessible for about a hundred years too. The problem is, we currently don’t have the data integrity, security and format migration standards to ensure that, according to Henry Newman at Enterprise Storage Forum. Newman calls for standards groups to add new features like collision-proof hash to archive interfaces and software. ‘It will not be long until your genome is tracked from birth to death. I am sure we do not want to have genome objects hacked or changed via silent corruption, yet this data will need to be kept maybe a hundred or more years through a huge number of technology changes. The big problem with archiving data today is not really the media, though that too is a problem. The big problem is the software that is needed and the standards that do not yet exist to manage and control long-term data,’ writes Newman.

Driving in Los Angeles somehow looks awesome in this time lapse

Driving in Los Angeles somehow looks awesome in this time lapse

I hate driving, I really do. I especially hate driving in Los Angeles. And even though I know it’s impossible and unreal for me to ever feel this cool driving (unless I turn into Ryan Gosling), this time lapse by Gavin Heffernan makes me want to get in my car and drive through Los Angeles forever.

In fact, all the driving scenes in Heffernan’s time lapse are pretty stellar. We’ve seen many versions of the Los Angeles time lapse and they’re always beautiful because of the sprawl and the never ending sea of lights and the car movements but this one might be the best yet.

Citable – sick of manually tracking sources when collecting quotes? For students, researchers, and other professionals who do secondary research, Citable simplifies collecting quotes, notes and other data points along with the additional reference information needed to make a web citation. Tile Calculator – Are you a professional tiler or just a handyman that loves doing DIY tiling jobs? Hate having to calculate the amount of tiles you require because you might be over/underestimating? If so, use Tile Calculator to work out how many tiles you will need for the job, along with 10% for wastage. Do Yoga With Me…

The Big Picture On Digital Receipts

Ex-NBAer Rex Chapman allegedly stole from Apple Stores by faking EasyPay

Lakers Suns 1998

Remember when Apple introduced its EasyPay self-checkout feature in 2011, and everyone wondered "how can they really tell if a customer is buying something or just shoplifting?" According to the Scottsdale, AZ police, former college and professional basketball player Rex Chapman had the same thought and acted on it. They arrested the 12-year NBA veteran at 1:45 PM local time, after employees recognized him as a former player for the Phoenix Suns. Chapman accused of committing seven instances of theft over a few months, snagging gear worth more than $14,000 and selling it at a local pawnshop for cash. All of this was allegedly done by picking up the items, pretending to use the self-checkout feature in the iPhone’s Apple Store app and then just walking out. Now Chapman is facing nine counts of Organized Retail Theft and five counts of Trafficking in Stolen Property — all of which are felonies — and we’re wondering if Tim Cook has another security issue that could use some attention.

Seeing cast iron skillets get made makes me want to cook

Seeing cast iron skillets get made makes me want to cook

Cineastas spent some time with Mike Whitehead and Finex Cast Iron Cookware Co. to give a glimpse of how Finex is trying to reinvent something that has existed for thousands of years: cast iron. I love the slow and considered process that goes into each skillet. And I love to imagine the delicious food that will be inside them.

If you’re wondering why the cast iron skillet is octagonal, Finex says that the shape "gives you 6 different directions to pour from when cooking on a crowded stove top." The handle is made with stainless steal and is supposed to help dissipate heat. It all might be overkill for making a cast iron skillet but it’s sure fun to watch.
