welcome back, gentle reader.
oh the joys of do-it-yourself pc repair. yawn.
good stuff, the aTi Catalyst Control Center installed, fully, works a treat. now back to dual monitor working.
and thats about all i have on the system at the moment.
the question is, how much "stuff" do i re-install ?
you see, to get round hdd failure i am investing in a RAID setup *)
how the hell can i afford that ? simple, buy a cheap pci raid controller, hook it up to two disks and off we go ... i am too fucking lazy to be arsed backing things up to cd/dvd whatever.
so even if it is the cheapest RAID array on gawds green earth, who cares. the card i bought will be here in ... oh, super saver delivery withstanding, probably next week, week after that ??
but it gets rave reviews and is simple to use ... alledgedly ... i guess we will soon find out. btw, anyone got a spare 160 or even a 120 gB hdd they do not need ? come on, my need is greater than yours :)
so my big 250 hdd has been reduced to 35 gB ... how long before the remaining 35 goes bang ? bottom line ? i need another hdd to mirror the one i am currently using which is a 120 gB.
:)(:lets gambol ... will start installing stuff and let the RAID card build the mirror *) (*
