Danger Mouse

Hard drive woes.

Ugh, this is frustrating. I've got 4 different hard drives in my primary server. It started out with just a single one, and now the file system flows all over the place, covering something like 11 partitions on the 4 drives.

I'd really like to reorganize and consolidate everything in a more logical and less ad hoc manner, but that is really gonna be a pain in the butt. I'd also love to change over / to use ReiserFS, like most of the rest of the partitions are using, but that also is a good bit of work (especially with the messy way things are set up).

On the other hand, maybe it is time I backed things up, wiped the drives, and reinstalled everything. I'm running on the same debian installation that started out as a Debian 1.3 (Bo) release, in late '97. It's been updated (thank God for apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, making life so much easier;-) numerous times since then, but I've never had to reinstall. It is prolly getting a little crufty. ;-)

80mm (Mini-)CD's.

Ugh. I'm down to less than half a dozen of my 80mm Mini-CD's. I absolutely love these things, 'cause they're so freakin' nifty.

Haven't found any place locally that caries them at a reasonable price yet, though, so it looks like I'll be ordering more again. I wish I could remember where I bought them last time, 'cause I got a good deal there. Although, after an hour of searching, it looks like buy.com is actually about the best price around. This place and this place both look pretty decent, too.
