My Weekend upgrade project

There here....so looks like I have a project for this weekend.

A while back I ordered another 250GB Maxtor Maxline II drive from Geeks.com...for $99 + TSH. Though I had several different possible upgrades to do at the time, and in the end...it is still sitting in its box.

One of the upgrades is to eventually upgrade each of the 3 drives in my Linux server known as 'lhaven' to 250+. It is kind of a big process, and I didn't feel like doing it a drive at a time.

So last weekend after I got back from my job interview...I ordered another pair of 250GB Maxtor Maxline II drives (this time from eBay)....$86 each + TSH. Those two drives arrived today.

So now to figure out how I'm going to do the drive swapping to eventually get the 3 current drives migrated to the 3 new drives. Guess the CDROM drive will come out temporarily....

After this is done, it'll be to figure out which of the 120GB drives will become the new boot drive in my WiRNS/DVArchive box....where its internal controller suffers from the 137GB limit. Space isn't so much an issue, since I upgraded the external drives (120+80+80) to a 300GB and a 250GB drive.

Then what remains is whether I'll ever upgrade the 5400rpm 160GB drive in one of my ReplayTVs (where the rest have 250GB Maxtor Maxline II drives) and the 120GB boot drive in my main desktop.

No feedback yet

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.
