Sad cheese grater  
Well, it seems that I have at least one dead/dying hard drive. So I've ordered 3 1TB drives to take it's place.

No, I didn't buy a Drobo (though I seriously thought about it for a while). My plan is to make the 500GB drive my primary boot drive, and one 1TB drive my 'extra data' drive. I also bought a USB 2.0 hard drive dock, so I can trade the other two 1TB drives as a rotating offsite backup. One at home, one at work, and once a week or so, bring the one from home to work, and the one from work home.

Now I'm just waiting for things to ship. Then I get to re-install OS X 10.4 from scratch, and spend a few days trying to get things back to the way they were.

My PowerMac G5. The front looks like a cheese grater. :)
