After swearing to be more careful, I dropped another hard drive on my nice soft carpet. It doesn't make sense that this can happen, but the usb cord popped out of the unit on the way down and on reinserting the cable to see if it would work: it would not. Magnifying glass showed the tiny pins had been bent. How does that happen????

So...spent 2 hours trying to straighten them out...and could not do it. Seagate 4TB drive in a Maxtor branded external case. Big clue to take it apart: look under the rubber feet....two screws. Took those off and the hard drive basically popped out. Put it in a caddy and it had reverted to "raw" status. So...I'm currently copying the backup files to the unit and should be good to go. I am VERY LUCKY to have dropped this unit twice while it was writing...and no head crash.

Being careful doesn't work. Got to DO SOMETHING to clean up the cable clutter around my case. Too easy to catch a cable.

BACK UPS. Very worth it when you use them.........................

Easy peasy... Just build a 2 meter tall fence around that area of the room - or maybe use some Loctite on the door hinges and latch to keep you away from it.

It was a weird Saturday, as none of this was expected. We went in for a regular scan and the director of prenatal came in for a consultation and decided that "now was the time". An hour later I was following the boys from theatre to nursery intensive care and still in shock.
:D

I'll talk more when I get some time.

That post was four weeks ago. They're still four weeks premature. (That's how this works, right?)

Lucky for you. But that raises a real grinder for me...

I bought a house for $460k close to city and beach. Absolutely beautiful. The whole rear end was a giant glass atrium with a pond and botanical garden for scenery. I did heaps of renovations, and then my stupid girlfriend declared she can't live like this anymore and punched me in the eye. I left.

After 3 years of owning it, and all the renovations, it sold for $500k. Not even breaking even. Then 8 months later, whoever bought it sold it for $750k and didn't do a {!#%@} thing to it.

Man. I am burning.

Yeah, that would really suck.

This place would be too good to be true if I wasn't aware of every step in the sequence of events. Short version is that a friend* left it to me and I have three people wanting to rent it. (They'll have to fight it out or something.) I assumed the mortgage and the renters pay the monthly payments. The bank is also giving me a $150,000 equity line of credit. Luckily I'm not an impulse shopper.
