Well my desktop has been running a little slowly the last couple of weeks, there’s me assumingÃ‚Â itsÃ‚Â aÃ‚Â resultÃ‚Â ofÃ‚Â meÃ‚Â fiddlingÃ‚Â withÃ‚Â registryÃ‚Â settingsÃ‚Â etcÃ‚Â inÃ‚Â theÃ‚Â nameÃ‚Â ofÃ‚Â curiosityÃ‚Â when
TuesdayÃ‚Â morningÃ‚Â itÃ‚Â refusesÃ‚Â toÃ‚Â powerÃ‚Â upÃ‚Â fullÃ‚Â stop. A bit of fiddling inside with Tom’s assistance and then a bright flash from the power supply and nothing… So its now running in peices using a power supply nicked from the house file server and one urgent order to ebuyer placed for a new supply. Nevermind, its been runnning for three years and has been on for a fair proportion of that so its done its time as it were!
It’ll at least teach me to do more frequent backups in future! Having been very lax with this recently I stood to severly inconvenience myself by loosing that data, as my data drives currently run as a stripe set (I can see an end to that!), extracting the data would not of been amusing and had me quite worried while bodging in the temporary power supply.
As usual, finding myself on a computer toy website I find a Lightscribe capable DVD/CD burner as well,Ã‚Â itÃ‚Â isÃ‚Â completlyÃ‚Â overÃ‚Â theÃ‚Â topÃ‚Â butÃ‚Â mightÃ‚Â reduceÃ‚Â theÃ‚Â numberÃ‚Â ofÃ‚Â discsÃ‚Â floatingÃ‚Â aroundÃ‚Â my
deskÃ‚Â withÃ‚Â dodgyÃ‚Â labelsÃ‚Â (ifÃ‚Â atÃ‚Â all).
