First the bad:
So I went to start my laptop one day after not using it for a few months. I go to boot and it won't boot says boot.ini is corrupt. THen it tries to boot from WINDOWS which fails. chkdsk didn't do anything, trying to format via the install doesn't do anything just hangs there. So the drive is dead :( I lost alot of work I didn't back up to my svn server :/
Last week at work I lost the hdd on my machine. I noticed things weren't acting right so I rebooted and windows wouldn't boot. It just sat there spinning at the splash screen. Luckly I got it just in time and was able to save my data. wooo!
Last bad thing. So over the weekend I got to boot my svn server, which is a Gentoo Linux box. I need to get some files off my svn server. So first I update the box, it had been a while, everything goes fine so I shut it down for the night. The next day I boot it up and it can't boot saying one of the partitions is corupt. I cry, but I am able to get my data off of it. I'm currently installing SVN on another drive to restore the dumps I made of the depots before all this happened.
So that's been my bad luck with HardDrives over the past few weeks, but the good news is I just got a new kick ass system..
Pentium D 3.0ghz 2x2mb L2Cache
2GB DDR 667 RAM
GF 7800GT PCIe
