Broken HDDs Revisited
Two years after writing about what I found out when I was looking why my HDDs kept breaking down, I started to receive emails about this post. It seems that it was mentioned in an Ubuntu bug report and this morning I noticed that exactly this bug report was mentioned on Slashdot, so I can consider my post to be slashdotted (indirectly). For the past week, I’m counting 15,000 hits and it is still rising fast. It’s a good thing that I use a static HTML journal, so that my journal-hosting-pentium-233MHz can handle this. It’s also a good thing that the issue finally gets some attention.
