Seagate 300GB OEM Drive from TigerDirect.com

I've hit the UPS Package Tracking page a few times today, hoping to see when they'll give an ETA for this drive.

And, now it shows a "Scheduled Delivery" for November 16th (tomorrow).

That's good....though I've pretty much settled on using the Seagate 250GB OEM Drive from TigerDirect.com that I got earlier this month for my WiRNS/DVArchive server as the new drive for my dead ReplayTV.

The drive was only being used for DVArchive storage...and this morning I started moving shows from it to my other DVArchive server. Then at 9:20, DVARchive quit....because its one of the days that Retrospect is schedule to run (at 9:30). DVArchive normally isn't restarted until 16:30, but I knew it would be done before then (since it only backs up my C: drive, which isn't that big.) But, I planned on coming home for a late lunch and restarting DVArchive on moving the remainder.

In the gap between 9:20 and 9:30, I decided a few other shows could go to another DVArchive storage area to help with things. Those files went to the C drive, because it is faster to copy between C and one of the firewire drives than between firewire drives (should be obvious why, eh? :>> )

Anyways....the remaining DVArchive move was done before I finished lunch, so I started to prep for the RTVpatch (delete the old partition, let the computer bluescreen -- which it always does when I exit 'Computer Management') And, then the actual patch operation should be pretty quick and that'll leave the actual drive swap for when I get home tonight.

I guess I really wanted all the extra drives hanging off of gumby to be 300GB drives :!:

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.
