rattle of death

[ #2565 ]
It sucks when one of the CPU fans gives off a death rattle, making it impossible to sleep, and letting the CPU overheat. It sucks even more when the primary IDE hard drive causes a kernel panic the next morning. Bad drives suck... but I'm able to boot from SCSI, and fsck the disk with no problems... it sure *seems* to be working. So pulling things that are important off of IDE to the SCSI drive seems in order. kernel panic. reboot. retry. kernel-panic. reboot. retry. ok. look through rest of drive for anything else important. kernel panic. sigh. pull power cord. Maybe a bad IDE controller? That would suck because it's onboard.

Where do you put 100 gigs of media files when the computer with the cd-burner is the one on its death bed? Hmmm... that assumes I can pull all of that media off of the drive which is looking more and more unlikely.

And I was going to do perl work today, too.
