At about the same time, I saw a review of the Buffalo TeraStation – which looked like a great product, but was priced at around £800 at the time. With the falling cost of storage, it’s now available for just over £500. I had decided that I wanted a terabyte storage array of my own, and I wanted one that ran Linux so that I could add additional services and install my own programs.

There’s a bugette in TWA that leads to cosmetic display problem on Mozilla:
If the post is longer than 100 lines, the remainder should be replaced with ”
“, which is fine. However, if the post length is less than that, ”
” is instead displayed, which is confusing.

Possibly the greatest problem of using UNIX-like systems all the time, is that it’s a little bit jarring to perform the context-switch into the Windows-like world of graphical browsers and suchlike.
Sometimes, though, the muscle-memory of the fingers outpace the, possibly temporarily distracted (hey, it’s been known to happen… occasionally), thought processes of the author. This is generally not a problem unless after, say, typing a significant amount of text for a long post, you realise just a fraction of a second too late that ctrl+w does not erase the word under the cursor in Mozilla 🙁
Indeed, even the excellent Tabbrowser Extentions‘ “Undo Close Tab” feature didn’t save me – as it successfully re-opened a virgin “Write Post” page.
I would encourage every WordPress user to quickly surf over to twilightuniverse.com and download the AutoSave plugin. Right now. What are you waiting for? Shoo!
