When you RMA a drive, anything can happen...

1) you could get the same disk back ("nothing is wrong with it"), and risk having to pay some tech fee. Never happened to me.
2) you could get a "refurbished" drive, happened to me twice with IBM (fsckers).
3) you could get a brand new drive (happened with the single maxtor disk I've RMA'ed).

If the drive temperature is off in the second box as well, and there's no firmware update or something, and you're going to replace the drive anyway, go for the RMA. A little trick that makes sure you'll get a new drive is to hook it to a PSU you don't care much about, then short-circuit the drive with a screwdriver until it stops working completely.

Try moving the drive to another system and see if the temp readings are unsane there too. If so, backup data and check if there's some new firmware out for the drive :-s
8004  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: raid 0 - lots of fun on: September 05, 2006, 03:14:08 AM
Try touching the drive - that'll tell you for sure. Temperature sensor is probably screwy, or perhaps the software. 85C is pretty insane for a drive, IMHO.

Crikey :/

If it's failing hard, rush off to get some replacement drive... and either power off and don't turn on till you got it, or keep it running but with no disk activity on the failing drive :/

8010  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pagefile.sys on: September 03, 2006, 08:13:30 AM
If you've got plent of ram (in my experience at least a gigabyte, but preferably two) you can disable the paging file entirely, if you're running XP (win2k will create a temp pagefile at boot if you disable it >_<).

Go to system properties -> advanced tab -> performance <settings button> -> advanced tab -> virtual memory <change button> -> select "no paging file" and press <set button> for each partition that has a paging file. Then click all the OK buttons smiley, reboot, and you can delete pagefile.sys.

urlwolf you are a genius.

Actually, I think he's a bit of a party pooper ;P

Humm, I'd rather use RAR self-extracting password-protected files... better compression, and I trust The Russians (TM). They're using AES as well.

Man, I love your graphical style.

Of the first two (beach) pictures, I like the second one with the smaller cody best.

DEFINITELY the new, the old was a cluttered mess smiley
8016  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: how tall is Cody? on: September 01, 2006, 11:10:00 AM
In my opinion (s)he's not of a fixed size - grows with the task ahead.

But usually small and cuddly, able to sit in my hand.

Nice cheesy

EDIT: these days I mostly use SSH/SCP though, so dunno if I'm going to jump on this one. undecided
8018  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Article: How Much System Memory Is Really Enough? on: September 01, 2006, 03:16:40 AM
2gig of ram here, XP32, disabled paging file as well. It's wonderful smiley. I'm glad I don't run Adobe apps though, or I'd probably still need the paging file.

Adding more ram == slowdown indeed only should happen with screwy motherboards.

4x512 vs. 2x1024 is stupid. Especially if you run AMD64 chips, some of them have buggy memory controllers which can cause system instability if you run at DDR400 speed... so if you're "full loading", you need to revert to DDR333.

Using an old drive for swap can't be recommended, it could easily end up slower than having swap on whatever drive you have all your other stuff on.

Swap will, unfortunately, be necessary a long time yet, as long as we have sloppy coders like the ones at Adobe.

Why not make it a LLSP server, while you're at it? smiley

You could use www.sysinternals.com "pskil", and write a batch file to kill the processes. A bit crude, but should work just fine. Alternatively, if you annoyed with the fact that batch files pop-up a console window, it should be equally easy to do in one of the scripting languages like AutoIt or AutoHotKey.

I've never really gotten used to using virtual desktops. But I have them available, thanks to blackbox for windows.

Hmm, a CD/DVD recorder causing BSODs? Sounds like a flawed drive that can't handle large DMA buffers.

And Creative drivers... uh-fscking-oh. Real crap.

8024  Special User Sections / The Getting Organized Experiment of 2006 / Re: When to automatize?how looking to optimize your system will make you inefficient on: August 29, 2006, 08:10:26 AM
I'd rather spend 4 hours coding than 2 hours of repetitive work. If it's 20 vs. 2, I might consider doing the repetitive work... but might also still end up coding, because it's more fun and seems like less time. Also, if there's a remote chance I'll need to do something similar again, I'll of course code because I then have the experience the next time, perhaps meaning that I can do it in one hour instead of two... smiley
