Rudyard Kipling’s “Epitaphs of the War”


If any question why we died,
Tell them, because our fathers lied.


I could not dig: I dared not rob: 
Therefore I lied to please the mob. 
Now all my lies are proved untrue 
And I must face the men I slew. 
What tale shall serve me here among 
Mine angry and defrauded young?

Toshiba’s 14TB Hard Drives Now Widely Available

This past summer, Toshiba began making 14tb hard drives available to enterprise buyers through resellers like SuperMicro. The drives are now widely available from Amazon and other online retailers.

As of the writing of this post, these carry a huge premium of $540, which is crazy given that it’s $100 more than similar 12tb drives. But if space is a premium, these drives are there for you.

Samsung/Lexar Close to Releasing Their 512gb MicroSD Cards

A few days ago, Samsung’s Germany website published images of its new line of EVO Plus MicroSD cards which included a 512gb card. Today, AnandTech reported that Lexar announced its 512gb MicroSD card, which also meets the A2 Application Performance Class standard.

Retail price for these cards is likely to be in the $300-$330 range. Personally, I’m looking forward to throwing one of these into my Galaxy Note 9 so I can up my total phone storage up to 1TB (also, my 400gb Samsung MicroSD card only has about 14gb free).

Here’s hoping that these hit Amazon before the end of 2018.
