A magnetic tape technology developed by 3M Corporation that allows for higher data densities. Travan has been standardized by the QIC consortium, and is backward compatible with older QIC standards. This means that Travan tape drives can read and write older QIC tapes a well as the newer high-capacity Travan tapes. The following table shows tape capacities (uncompressed) and QIC compatibilities for the different Travan levels, 1 to 4.
Travan Level Uncompressed Storage QIC compatibility
TR-1 400 MB QIC-80-MC
TR-2 800 MB QIC-3010-MC
TR-3 1.6 GB QIC-3020-MC
TR-4 4 GB QIC-3095-MC
Created by Cerulean Studios and released in 2001, Trillian is a multiheaded IM client that connects users of multiple public IM services such as AIM, Windows Live Messenger, Jabber, Skype and more. If you have friends on different networks, you can use Trillian to manage your various IM accounts. When you log in to Trillian, […]
A feature of the Data Set management command available in the ATA8-ACS-2 specification. The command is used in the operating system used to wipe invalid data blocks on solid-state drives (SSD) which are no longer in use – including data blocks which have been left by deleted files. Traditionally, flash media could not overwrite existing […]
- Triple DES
Also referred to as 3DES, a mode of the DES encryption algorithm that encrypts data three times. Three 64-bit keys are used, instead of one, for an overall key length of 192 bits (the first encryption is encrypted with second key, and the resulting cipher text is again encrypted with a third key).
Refers to the Intel 430 family of Pentium chipsets. The first in family, the 430FX, is called the Triton; the enhanced 430 HX is called Triton 2. The Triton chipset supports the PCI bus and was the first x86 chip to use EDO DRAM. The Triton 2 is one of the fastest Pentium chipsets, with […]
- Trojan Horse
A destructive program that masquerades as a benign application. Unlike viruses, Trojan horses do not replicate themselves but they can be just as destructive. One of the most insidious types of Trojan horse is a program that claims to rid your computer of viruses but instead introduces viruses onto your computer. The term comes from […]
