New hdc

Well, by the time I got home for lunch UPS has already made a delivery attempt. So, I made a side trip to the lease office on the way back to work to fetch the drive.

Later when I got home after work...I set about to install the drive in place of the failed (remanufactured) Maxtor 6Y250P0, that I had gotten in exchange for one that failed under warranty....

I partitioned it up....having not previousily noted that it was only using 2GB out of the 4GB swap partition I had created, I again created a 4GB partition and the rest as the filesystem. Oh well, I guess what's 2GB these days....

I'm going with a slow format with a read-write badblock scan. Just to prove to myself that the drive is safe, before I commit some important files to it. At the rate things are'll be tomorrow before I can mount it. :zz:

Palm TX handheld


Darn...looks like Palm finally did it.

For the longest time (ever), I've been making use of just a Palm Tungsten T. Because there hasn't been a compeling enough reason to leap to other models.

Namely, the lack of compeling new features to satisfy my desires. And, features that I actually want or will use.

Looks like the TX will finally be that model. WiFi is pretty much the only thing I'm missing in my Tungsten T. Though more memory would also be helpful. There is also a price factor, especially if upgrading will require me to buy all new accessories....

But, this looks like the model that'll get me to make the plunge.

hdc is dead, long live hdc?

Well, drive hdc seems to have failed completely now in my Linux server (lhaven).

Fortunately, according to UPS tracking, the new 300GB Seagate drive I ordered to replace it should be arriving today.

So, it should just be a matter of finding the time to perform the transplant. Fortunately, everything I needed to save from the drive has found its way into other areas around my network....though I'm a little in the dark on the original directory permissions, but I should be able to get that close enough....

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.
