Russell Coker, M.2
According to Wikipedia M.2, formerly known as the Next Generation Form
Factor (NGFF), is a specification for internally mounted computer
expansion cards and associated connectors. It replaces the mSATA
standard, which uses the PCI Express Mini Card physical card layout and
connectors. Russell has been experimenting with M.2 cards for high-speed
Russell Coker has done lots of Linux development over the years, mostly
involved with Debian.
Rodney Brown, CRCs
According to Wikipedia, a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) is an
error-detecting code commonly used in digital networks and storage
devices to detect accidental changes to raw data. Blocks of data
entering these systems get a short check value attached, based on the
remainder of a polynomial division of their contents. CRCs are popular
because they are simple to implement in binary hardware, easy to analyze
mathematically, and particularly good at detecting common errors caused
by noise in transmission channels.
