Not long after I started writing this blog I heard from Les Tokar, who runs The SSD Review. It seems that Les had been calling himslef “The SSD Guy” for quite a while before I started to use that name for myself.
Les was more than kind about my using the name as well, all he asked was for me to clarify that this blog and his are unrelated, which is spelled out with the disclaimer to the right of this post.
I later met Tokar himself as we both attended Tom Coughlin’s Storage Visions conference last January. That’s where his lovely wife Karen snapped the photo of the two of us on this blog post.
I find The SSD Review to be a font of useful information. If you haven’t read it, please give it a look.
As for Les Tokar, I offer a tip of the hat to a real gentleman and fellow blogger.
