Does your digital camera use SD cards? Ever notice that if you purchase an SD card greater than 2GB that it’s labeled SDHC even though it looks physically the same? That HC means “high capacity” since the original SD specification limited their storage to 2GB. The trouble is, not all cameras and card readers will read SDHC cards. Be sure to check. More details can be found on the SD Association Web site.

I have about 2 terabytes of storage attached to my home computer. 1TB = 1,000 GB. 1,000 TB = 1 Petabyte (PB). If I win the lottery I think I’ll take some of it and play around by building a Backblaze Pod which contains 45 hard drives totaling 67 TB of storage per unit.

Backblaze has open-sourced the design and provide complete instructions on building such a device on their blog. They’re also the company I use for my online backups for just $5.00 per month.

Just take the number before the “_” in the filename part of the URL, in this case “3858618365″ and add it to the end of “http://flickr.com/photo.gne?id=”. In this case you end up with http://flickr.com/photo.gne?id=3858618365 which when opened will give you this:
