Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Crash, boom, bang

Published: Saturday 2010-09-25.

The old hard disk of my home computer seems to be completely bored. It seems to be doing fine, until I tried to reboot it yesterday, when it started failing. Now I have bought myself a new one, but when I tried to copy files over from the old one the computer hangs, and when I try booting from the old disk (something that partly worked yesterday), I get “Read Error” already in Grub.

Oh well. I have backups of most of my information, and my movie projects are on a loose USB disk, so I have not lost too much data. My photo album is on the other computer (the backup was on this one) and my music collection I believe I have a copy of somewhere else. Some downloaded files I never did do backups of are gone, but I can probably survive without them. It is just so much work having to re-install everything…
