UFS - "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
 
Samsung launches first removable UFS memory cards - Samsung has announced that it intends to produce the first removable versions of a new format of memory cards designed, it says, to replace the microSD card in portable electronic devices such as cameras, drones and phones.

I think this cold is more than a cold. Been in bed all day: suspect the flu, Black Death or Lurgy of Doom :-( Still feeling rotten.

We enjoyed our boat trip around the Giants Causeway coast last weekend - a view of the coastline I've not seen before. Definitely recommend http://www.portrushseatours.com

OS/Net guardian. Solaris Engineer.
Introduction
I work on Solaris, and am the current tech lead of the Solaris ON consolidation at Oracle. I'm a Dad of two, a very proud husband of one, and play with cameras, computers and the kids. I live in Northern Ireland and blow off steam by going running, brewing beer, playing music, and mucking about on a mountain bike.

It was our 2nd time to Pizzeria Napoli tonight. We popped in about 5pm on a Friday and were the first customers there, but the place quickly filled up with the after work crowd. The staff were extremely friendly throughout our meal. We had great starters and wonderful pizza, tiramisu and excellent gelato for the kids. A+ would do business again :-)

A fantastic place to bring the kids. We spent ages just playing with the gravity bowl alone. Expensive, but very much worth a visit. Dad got to geek out too, which was most excellent!
