It’s been a while since I bowled.. Chris, when are we going to bowl??? Super delayed already lah!
Remember when my laptop’s motherboard was fried?
Then it came where my desktop’s OS hard disk was corrupted – just last week. I managed to fix the errors and it was back and running a day later. I decided to give it a soft run – running non intensive or critical applications as well as reducing read/write load on the hard disk, and it’s been running for nearly 5-6 days till today, it crashed again.
I roughly figured out what’s wrong, it happens when I’m multitasking with Google Chrome (my quick startup browser), Firefox (normal usage browser) and Lightroom (my photo management/editing software) and a few other small applications running.
Not related to this whole ordeal, my network storage is finally maxed out. 50GB remaining but insufficient for the next few months. The last wedding alone took up 50GB on each NAS, desktop and laptop hard disks.
So now it’s back to the drawing board on how to build up my work studio. I think I’ll be heading downtown this weekend to get fresh sets of hard disks. Two 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black for the desktop to be RAID 1, a normal hard disk for OS. Then will decide on whether to upgrade the desktop or to get 2 more 1TB hard disks for the NAS. Ugh decisions.
And uh I definitely need to get a FireWire card reader. And uh a small and efficient laptop cooler. And uh, CAT5 network cables. And DVD-Rs.
This upgrade will definitely cost more than RM2000. T_T
P/S: I think the wedding is jinxed towards me. All my hardware fails right after the Hen’s night and Wedding.
