My new Harddisk crashed

Filed under: My Life — Suramya @ 11:12 PM

My new 2 TB HDD that I just bought about a month ago just crashed. Its not completely dead yet but it refused to let me write to the disk a couple of times and the disk has started making the click of death. Thankfully its still functional enough for me to copy the data off it. I had most of it except the music and movies already backed up so wasn’t too worried. But its functional enough that I am in the process of backing up everything to the other 1TB drive I have.

Might need to borrow drive space from Surabhi and Vinit till I get it replaced but atleast I didn’t loose data.

But I am disappointed in Segate. This is the first time i have had a drive die on me in a month. The others that died on me had reason to, one got dropped from the table the other traveled with me all over the world so it was probably exposed to some shock or something during the travel.

Now I need to find appropriate packaging to ship the drive to Segate and wait for them to ship me a new drive… :( Ah well… Not a lot I can do about it.

6th Year of people suffering through my rants/posts starts

Filed under: My Life — Suramya @ 11:59 PM

Wow… Its October 2nd already and that makes it 6 years since I made the first post on this blog. When I started off I was posting one post a day atleast, and on some days I even made multiple posts a day. Over time things got a bit hectic and I got a bit lazy so the frequency went down to a couple of times a week and now is down to once or twice a month.

I have decided to increase the frequency again to at least a post a week. Once that is a regular occurrence I will increase the frequency to twice or thrice a week.

In anycase here are some stats on the blog:

Total posts: 748
Total Comments: 431
Busiest day: Jan 7th 2010 (I lost all my stats for 2008-2009 when the service I used to track the stats went down)

I will see if I can extract more stats from my http logs but that pretty much depends on how many of the old logs I have on the server and how long it will take me to extract the stats from them. So don’t hold your breath.

Well this is all for now. Will post more later.
