NetApp 3040c SAN Cabling Diagram - Typical Fiber Channel

The following is a typical cabling diagram of a NetApp 3040c with 4 fiber channel disk shelves in a single loop configuration. This particular system is also dual connected into 2 fiber channel switches as part of a highly available SAN design. The 3040c Filers in this diagram include (2) additional 4 port fiber channel cards to allow both multiple Fiber Channel networks to connect to the SAN and allow maximum availability of the disks.

Powerballs - help for carpal tunnel

Wow, these Powerball things are great. I've been using them for years to help my wrists with Motorsports and golf... but now I've got all the computer guys in the office using them to help with carpal tunnel and sore wrists. The nice thing about them is they are low impact and you can use them while your on the phone or sitting at your desk without any problems. We've been having speed competitions in the cubicles for a change of pace.
