Death by Power Cycle

[ #10801 ]

Two of my computers have died since that fateful power cycle in the office a little over a week ago. Now, I'm pretty sure that the hard drive in my mail server (one of the two drive, not dead yet, but definitley broken with physical error) was going to go anyway, but still. What does this teach us, children?

Office computers should be on a UPS, a one second power cycle can be avoided! I'll be running four computers and random networking thingies here at the office in less than a month. I have to petition for a USP soon.

Now it's time to go hard drive hunting, have I mentioned how badly your pocket is raped when trying to buy 20 gig hard drives? You'd figure they'd be cheap now.
