I bought a new hard drive yesterday to replace the one that failed. It's exactly the same model. I'm going to ship the broken one back to Western Digital and when I get the replacement I'll set up a RAID mirror in my NAS box. It'll mean next time a drive fails I won't have to spend all weekend rebuilding the damn thing. :p
I also bought a gigabit Ethernet switch. It was a good idea, except that my laptop has GbE but my desktop PC doesn't. It makes it annoying backing up the many gigabytes of data on it. Yeah, my desktop is overdue for an upgrade. I'm still not convinced I should build myself a gaming PC. I almost never used it for such.
Oh look - the cat's back and he's still whining for breakfast. Damn cat.
