A pox on all computers

UPDATE: After I drop some serious Hamiltons on a new hard drive, one of the fans starts sounding like a harvester. Oh, woe is me. /UPDATE

My file server celebrated the new year with some catastrophic hard drive corruption, and since there’s no way I’m going to fly naked without backups, it was necessary to spend some quality time buying a new hard drive and reinstalling FreeBSD.

Apparently the computer gods were wroth with me for some reason. Hopefully the sacrifice of a few hours of Saturday time will be enough to appease them for a while. If not, I guess a goat is in for some unhappiness…

Open ComputerMy file server with it innards exposed. Dig the vintage case.

You have thoughts? I’m @niclindh on Twitter and I want to know what you think.
