|2005/12/22 Raid 45

So, about 2 years ago, I "borrowed" a web page page on raid, and added a fake definition on raid 45, "double inverse parity", and published it here (the point being that I'm the top hit on google for raid45 )
Why would I do such a thing you ask? Well, the original intent was to catch people I phone screen when they type all my questions into google and try to read off a web page.
Now, in real life I don't actually need that, I can very well tell if people are looking stuff up, but I found the idea amuzing.
In the meantime, some of my coworkers did successfully use my page to catch cheaters, but I think the best part is that someone took the fake definition I made for the fake raid level 45, and put it in his page .
I'm still laughing because he just copied the nonsensical "uses a double inverse parity that is both on the last drive, and also spread across all the drives" verbatim.
Before long, my definition will be in a book or something :)
