Spirituality and philosophy

Epicurus: 3 source of happiness: friends, freedom, analyzed life

Socrates: find convictions that you can stick with, not follow as sheep.

Seneca: 1AD, stayed in Rome. Focus on anger: because we are hopeful about world, solution: lower the expectation . Like traffic, assume people drive bad, have traffic. Realize what we can change and what we can't change. Change the attitude toward what we can't change. Prosperity festers anger. Wealthier you are the more expectations one will have. Stress: solve it by things of things that can go wrong, don't always think things will will be fine.

Michel de Montaigne: We determine what is normal, can prosecute those/things which are not normal. Travelling shows us how narrow our minds are by showing other normal. Don't be judgmental.

Nietzsche: greatness is acquired, by hard work. Without pain, can't achieve success. Pain in worth it. Difficulty is normal. How we meet failure varies.


List of atheists: Buddha, Nehru, Bhagat Singh, Soros, Zuckerberg, Bruce Lee, HG Wells, Picasso, Frank Lloyd Wright, Ayn Rand, Kamal Hassan, Charlie Chaplin,
Scientist: Edison, Nobel, Watson, Oppenheimer, Linus Torvalds

Synology Hybrid RAID vs RAID 1 layout
SOLUTION TO GET RAID1: if you delete your volume, and press the 'create' button and go through the wizard again, don't choose the recommended option; choose custom instead. Then when you tick your 2 drives and progress to the next page, you'll see all the raid option available - including Raid1. I did it and now my Volume Manager says "RAID 1 (with data protection)" in the Type row. mount RAID1 disk. in general users can read their HD with an additional ext2 driver on windows or simply with a Linux system. Regardless if it was a basic or a raid1.
How to manually mount a USB Hard Disk
How to get data off the disk when synology station is broken. sudo mount -r -t ext3 /dev/sdb3 /media/synology
Manually Mount Harddisk. Submit a support formand give Synology support remote access to your DS, they will remount your HD.
How to retrieve data from RAID Volumes on Linux
steps to recover data from RAID1. My steps:
use Knoppix Live CD. 
connect one of RAID1 HDD to SATA port.
Boot Knoppix Live CD.
Run: fdisk -l, to see the list has RAID1 HDD. It will appear as /dev/sdb[123], system: "Linux raid autodetect". 3rd one, /dev/sdb3 has the volume that has the data.
Run: sudo bash
Run: mdadm-startall, get console trace: 
      "Assembling MD array md2...done (degraded [1/2]). 
       Generating udev events for MD arrays...done."
Run: cat /proc/mdstat, has data: 
     "Personalities : [raid1]
      md2 : active raid1 sdb3[0]
      972041280 blocks super 1.1 [2/2] [U_]
      unused devices: " 
Run: mkdir /tmp/synology
Run: mount /dev/md2 /tmp/synology. 
Run: ls /tmp/synology, vola: The files of RAID1 are listed. :)
