Some seriously cool tech (DailyTech.com) from Fujitsu, a 8TB RAID that fits into a PC tower case and consists of 50 (!) 2.5″ sized 200GB harddisks. Zikes.

At last! Google has released a free OS X version of its SketchUp software. I’m not entirely clear yet on whether 10.4 is required or that I can get away with the 10.3.9 that I run here… Ah, the included readme.rtf says:

Mac OS® 10.3 (Panther) or higher

The installer doesn’t do the usual sudo stuff though, so you need to actuall switch to an admin user to install it. A bit a-typical, in my experience, but I’ll do that later today.

Researchers find that coffee defends the liver against booze (The Register):

Researchers have confirmed drinking coffee can protect against one of the worst effects of alcohol. Alcoholic liver cirrhosis progressively scars the organ, and is known to be affected by a range of factors including smoking, diet, infection and genetics – as well as alcohol.

I think I’ll go get myself another cup, then.
