Quote of the Day – Frederick Douglass

September 29, 2014 1 comment

Frederick Douglass“Everybody has asked the question. . .”What shall we do with the Negro?” I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are wormeaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by nature’s plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall. And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone!”
― Fredrick Douglass

Seems to me this is appropriate for pretty much everyone.

Full Disclosure: Synology sent me this product for review at no cost. No promotional consideration, express or implied, was given except for writing an honest blog at some point (and, well, I’m behind on fulfilling that promise, so…).

For now, I’m going to focus on the physical characteristics about the casing and some of the changes to the earlier model that I had, the DS411 Slim.
