Review: Snitch

Snitch1

A father goes undercover for the DEA in order to free his son who was imprisoned after being set up in drug deal.

Snitch2

What a man would do for his son, and Dwayne Johnson goes all the way in this movie. This is a more serious tone to what Dwayne Johnson usually plays and it seems he gets a little deeper then he expected. This movie has a nice storyline, a bit slow but the intensity builds up towards the end. A deep story with great action, and I liked the character Dwayne Johnson played, if you like him then you will like this movie.

Synology Storage Expansion From 10 TB to 21 TB – DX510

SDX51001

Recently one of my main storage devices got to about 78% capacity of the available 10.92 TB. Its mostly filled with my TV Shows & Personal Files. I have another Synology Device as well which has about 21.84 TB capacity which is a back up for everything I have, but the main one is the DS1511+. So I wanted to expand it and purchase the DX510 which is an expansion unit, and I bought 5 Hard Drives to fill it right away, the capacity being 3TB (2.73 TB Actual) per drive so it doubles the capacity of the DS1511+.

SDX51002

One thing to keep in mind is the connection is an eSata with screws so it doesn’t come out at all, if it does then you lose the Volume on your Synology Device so its very important to keep it screwed it. Once you plug in all the hardware and connect it to the DS1511+, the DX510 will power up with the DS1511+ and all controls will be made through the DSM software, I think it stands for the Desktop Synology Manager.

SDX51003

Configuring is simple, you have two choices, Expansion of the Volume or Creating a new Volume. Also there is a limit to a Volume, it will max out at 16 TB, so I decided to create another Volume with Synology Hybrid Raid I got a Volume space of 10.92 TB so a total of 21.84 TB on the Synology Device. It took 20 minutes to setup the device physically, then to create the volume and do a fully check on the hard drives it took 24 hours, so it can check every sector of every drive on the new expansion unit. Well worth the wait to make sure everything is working smoothly first time around. You can move your Shares to different volumes so give yourself space but when you access it through explorer it looks like as its just one big space. Synology does make everything easier and in reality it is an excellent product.

SDX51004

If you are looking for a high end storage device that does it all and it is simple to setup yet you have a lot of options for customization I would go with the DS1812+ but if you are looking for something simple for the home the DS1512+ is perfect.

Check out Cameoo in Kuwait they are even cheaper then Amazon which is extremely surprising and refreshing. Forget their website, just call them and ask the Synology unit you are looking for, its bound to be cheaper.

Friday – Out On The Town

Riding021301

A few more additions and a few old faces have joined our Friday morning ride and the group did get bigger. It’s sort of like organized chaos but with a lot of testosterone flying around. People are excited and some of these guys adore their machines, me being one of them. The thrill of riding just can’t be compared and that is what compels us to get up with only a few hours of sleep to ride in the morning.

Riding021302

We seem to be having a lot of Germans joining us these days, and they are impressive machines. We are a bit particular about who joins us on the ride because honestly it would be a bit dangerous for a novice to join us and there is a very good rythem going on with most the riders, there is a chaotic understanding that somehow works in this order. Some of the riders are extremely skilled and some of the riders are Cafe Racers like MFW, but still it’s a lot of fun and the best way to start off the day. Honestly we need more curvy roads, and I need to find them to freshen our routes a bit, change it up.

Ducati Day Out!

The weather has been near perfect the last few weeks, a little bit chilly in the morning then cool and sunny in the afternoon. Perfect for riding and for some reason the streets seem to be emptier then usual so it was to be taken advantage of. Nawaf wanted to ride as well and he just upgrade from a Ducati Monster to a Ducati 999, and in all black that machine looks pretty good.

As usual our point of contact was Starbuck Bida’a since it nice place to start and a good location to choose the route from. This time around we wanted to take the sea side to the free zone, then the airport road, then to Sabhan and back again. The weather started out cool but as the day went by it got hot and hotter, and I wore my air jacket but a light sweater under it and I was boiling.

We took to the seaside first and Nawaf was behing me with Monichum at the rear. Staggered formation as usual, sounds a bit like a military line up but not that rigid. We were flying out of the lights and cruising on the road and taking turns hard and fast, I love open high speed curves that you can take smoothly. Nawaf was falling back a bit since the machine is new to him and he has only been riding for a year. So we just observed how he reacted to our riding and how he ws riding, that is what we do with first time riders. Then we sit down and give him pointers and things to remember, and practice makes perfect. The one thing to keep in mind when riding is the smoother you are the better the ride will be, the better the bike will react when riding, even when you want to brake hard it can be done smoothly with great results. We always have new people riding with us and learning, sometimes they ride with us for a while and sometimes they join us at a later point, not everyone is willing to wake up at 7am on the weekend to go riding.
