Another Maxtor OneTouch II (300GB)

Well, after a near death experience when I woke up earlier this week to find my W2K box dead...which is my PoopliUpdater/WiRNS/DVArchive server box, among other things. I decided that I should probably implement some kind of solution to have backups of the machine.

As it was, I run ERUNT on my computer once a week...the problem was the SYSTEM hive had gotten corrupt. So, I restored from one from the previous week and was back up and running.

I immediately ran it again, though perhaps not necessarily the wise thing to do....since it looked like it has started to run as scheduled by didn't quite make it. Which is what probably brought my computer down.

Now what I've done is order a(nother) Maxtor E01G300 OneTouch II 300 GB External Hard Drive. :yes:

The thing is....I ordered it from Amazon.com instead. Because it will very likely be shipped by UPS rather than FedEx. So, I'm paying like $15 more for the drive and about $10 for just ground shipping instead of the free 2 day FedEx. But, it'll eliminated the hassle of FedEx not actually delivering it in 2 days, etc. :P

Though while I was at it, I had a couple of Bif Naked CDs added to the order....

Firefox 1.0.5 and RoboForm

Installed the update to Firefox 1.0.5 today....everything seemed to go fine, until I started surfing.

RoboForm kept throwing an exception, tried upgrading to the latest version. But, it doesn't support 1.0.5 yet (and forcing it didn't help).

Had to downgrade back to 1.0.4 for the time being....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
