Geek dad and Junior the geek

A picture named geekDadAndSonAtFrys.jpgAt Fry's this afternoon, where I bought two 500GB Firewire drives for $169 eachPermalink to this paragraph

Which it turns out I needed because after I got home all three external drives attached to my desktop were reported as damaged beyond repair by the new Mac OS. Coincidence? Lucky that I had exactly the hardware I needed to dig out of the mess? Who knows! Permalink to this paragraph

Funny thing is it's taking over 10 hours to do the copying. It won't finish until tomorrow morning, Murphy-willing. When the disks got big, all of a sudden restoring from backups takes a lonnnng time.  Permalink to this paragraph
