Is it possible to set up a RAID 0 and RAID 1 using the same 2 drives?

If I have two 1TB drives, can I partition each one into two 500GB drives, (Labelled A1, A2, B1,B2)  then set up a RAID 0 array between A1 and B1, while having A2 be a RAID 1 backup of B1, and B2 a RAID 1 backup of A1? Or would this Simply give me the equivalent speed of a TB Raid 1? (From what I understand, this would be similar to RAID 5, but wouldn't require a separate RAID card.)

sawing 1 1/4&quot; EMT?

Hi everyone, I have found a local store close to my home that will sell me electrical metal tubing, but they will not cut it (they only sell it in 10'-long tubes). They have told me that they have a hacksaw in the back I can use to do it myself, but since I am just kid I thought they might be kidding me. Is it feasible to cut 1 1/4" electric metal tubing with a hack saw? The tubing looks pretty thick to me and I would need to make three different cuts. Thank you for any advice, James

How about a teeny tiny power supply??

I've seen some pretty good power supply projects on here. Here's a challenge: Make a 5 to 12 volt power supply that can fit into a 1 cubic inch space, of any dimensions, i.e. 1"x 1" x 1" or 1/2" x 2" x 1", etc, including any enclosure. It must put out at least 300ma sustained and must have a fairly smooth voltage regulation for use with other electronics (of course). It must have clear schematics without the use of special programs to view, i.e. it shouldn't be in an eagle format or rather can be viewed with paint, or any of the other picture viewers. It must be powered from the mains and NOT use a microcontroller or any custom chips. The smaller it is, the better, and less than 1 cubic inch is excellent. I've seen real genius on here. Is this genius ready to try this?
