    Everything is just fine. I assure you, there is no Traveling Terabyte Project here.

    Then you just need people on their forums discussing it, and explaining how they think it must be a myth. Create enough discussion on it being a myth, and they might investigate it.

    So there you have it. TTB is an urban myth to some. Me thinks that means there is a demand out there for them.
    That's funny. Maybe we can get the MythBusters to do a segment on Deviant and the TTB. Then we can see the "CONFIRMED" plate drop onto the picture of you with the TTB01.

    Well you had the first write up and it got out quite well. Be sure to contact the LA Times techology section, they usually have an entry or two about Defcon. Heck maybe the FOOD section can do an article on the Toxic BBQ. :>

    Yes please notify the press about this project. It sounds awesome. :)

    I'd be happy to write an update about the Trav. Terabyte Project.

    In the spirit of breaking people, I vote that if anyone downloads anything they shall be forced to take Tetsuo with them. If It's not already in the collection, I can provide it :)

    Well you don't have to increase the number of RAIDS, you can increase the size of them or the size of the drives that are in the RAIDS ..

    Microsoft has supported mount points since at least Windows 2000 and they actually work quite well. From Disk Management, simply "Change Drive Letter and Paths..." and assign the drive to an empty NTFS folder.

    Well i have always heard it said that you can't have too many of those RAID thingys!
