  7. Thread moved to a more appropriate forum.
  8. That's a good point. I think you need to make it clear to mangement that it's not your responsibility to act as 'bouncer' for their manager and that although you're going to do your best to keep the situation calm it's their responsibility to see to the safety of everyone - including you.
  9. If you have reason to believe the manager might be attacked you really do need to warn him. How would you feel if it was you and noone warned you? I doesn't matter how you feel about the manager, the fact is he could be seriously hurt and I don't think you would want the fact that you had been forewarned on your concience. As for what happens when fisticuffs break out, that's a tricky one. If the manager's been warned then (if he's sensible) he'll tke his own precautions. If not, then I guess you'll have to judge the situation for yourself. No matter what, I definitely wouldn't keep the warning to myself.
  10. Gosh, are you back again Steve..? I thought you had left... Don't feed the trolls folks....
  11. Well, I have most of my DVD collection backed up onto hard drive. On average a DVD contains about 6.4GB of data. This means that my 600 DVDs take up just under 4 terrabytes of storage. Clearly, if my storage were to fail it would be rather inconvenient so I have them on a RAID array which provides redundancy in the event that one of the hard drives fail. Specifically, I have it configured as an un-striped Raid4 array. What this means in practical terms is that I can keep on adding hard drives to my array up to a limit of 15 drives (16, including the parity drive), safe in the knowledge that if any drive fails the data on it can be rebuilt from the parity drive. The magic bit is that I only need 1 parity drive that is at least the same capacity as all the other drives in order to be able to rebuild the array if one of the data drives fails. Obviously, if the parity drive fails I can simply re-create it from the unaffected data drives. The array allows me to stream DVDs to 4 different meadi centres simultaneously, which is great because it means the discs themelves stay nice and safe in the loft.
  12. First off, if you don't know what Ubuntu is then I suggest you just move on, because there's nothing to see here. I have a bit of a problem. I have installed Ubuntu 8 on my daughter's pc and I'm trying to access my DVD database which is sitting on my RAID array. I've tried all of the DVD players that can be installed with Ubuntu and they are all able to play DVD perfectly from either the DVD disc istelf or from the local HDD. I cannot however get any of them to play a DVD from the array. The array has Windows shares for all of the DVDs, with each movie sitting in its own directory. Ubuntu allows me to create a shortcut (bookmark) to the share, but non of the Ubuntu media players (Xine etc) allow me to access the share. I can get VLC Player to play the individual .vob (avi) files that make up the DVD, but that's pretty crap. Can someone advise me of the correct syntax for accessing a file on a windows share from Linux? This would allow me to access an individual movie's video_ts.ifo file which contains the DVD playlist. Ideally of course there will be some sort of DVD player out there for Ubuntu that will allow me to simply select the DVD folder and it figures out the rest. Puzzled and frustrated
  13. Do you have the details of the court case? In particular the date of the hearinf and the case number. I'm not completely familiar with eviction stuff so pleae bear with us while we check some things out.
  14. You should have a look at this HMRC fact sheet: http://lime-technology.com/dnlds/unRAID%20Server%204.3.1.zip Foster Care Relief basically means that yoor total receipt from fostering are disregarded as income up to a pretty high amount (i.e. way more than you will be getting for your maintenance). Note the wording in the following excerpt: All it says is that you have to get 'income' from the LA for fostering. It doesn't say that it has to be classified as being for maintenance or anything else. What it means in total is that for tax and benefits they should completely disregard any income from fostering. The flip side to this is that they will also disregard the looked after children, so you won't be able to claim anything for them.
