Computer Attack: "Hannibal Raptor"
Posted: Friday January 25th, 2008 by

I won't go into too much detail here as the whole story is scrawled out in the most recent GU Blog post. But, my computer is still pretty much down. Basically the primary drive (WD Raptor 74 Gig) just kinda aged out. Right now it's up and running a clean install of XP, but it has a SMART Error and the Western Digital advice is to replace the drive. I'm not one to question that advice given the drives age and the amount of abuse I've subjected it to.

I have another Raptor I was using for fast seek time storage that I've backed up and am considering turning into my new promary drive. But, I'm not 100% sure that one is in top working order either. So, I may just have to buy a new primary drive. I'll be stress testing the drive today just to see how it holds up.

For now though, the computer is "under control" and isn't being allowed near my more important GU business and GU backup drives. Just incase he gets hungry.

I'll keep you guys posted on the computer's progress.
