John McDonald’s “CALL ME MULE” Film Winning Festival Awards

11/8/2023
OWC RADiO host, Cirina Catania, sits down with filmmaker John McDonald about his ten-year journey to film his latest documentary, "Call Me Mule," the story of a man named John Sears, nicknamed "Mule," who has lived a nomadic lifestyle for the past thirty years, traveling across the country with his three mules in tow. Living in harmony with nature, enjoying this beautiful United States on foot, and advocating against our country's dependence on motorized transportation and urban sprawl, Mule finds his simple way of life threatened by those determined to uphold the establishment. Despite his many confrontations with law enforcement, he and his mules refuse to give up. "Call Me Mule" is a fascinating story about a man and his mules, living his life exactly as he wants without concern for modern conveniences. He doesn't need them. John McDonald's documentary has been accepted to many festivals around the world and has won Official Selection and Audience awards.

Tim Standing Explains How SoftRAID 7.5 Monitors our Hard Drive Health

7/30/2023
Tim Standing, OWC's VP of Software Development for Mac, is a long-time friend and one of the planet’s smartest technologists. His new version of SoftRAID (7.5) works natively with the new version of Mac OS and is now available for download. In case you weren’t aware, SoftRAID is Tim’s invention and what better way to get to know the ins and outs of the software that we use than to ask the coder! Our show runner and host, Cirina Catania, sat down with Tim to get the low-down and share it with you. Look around your office or studio or edit bay…how many external hard drives do you have around you? Cirina's company, Catania Studios, where this interview was recorded, manages literally hundreds of terabytes on RAID arrays and individual hard drives…and their main server. There are drives that go on location and re-attach when the crew returns, drives that are used for backup or redundant shares in the office, drives that will ultimately end up in storage or drives that are busy working to keep our digital worlds … well, working every day. We use SoftRAID from OWC to monitor all those drives and tell us IN ADVANCE when any of them might be getting just too tired to work properly anymore OR if they are about to fail for any reason! SoftRAID lives on our systems in each bay and works hard every day to report back to us about how our external drive are doing. Thanks for joining us today.
