"I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour but heaven knows I'm miserable now"

September 12, 2005


Rajbo and I have a child, its name is REDOXON. It was lovingly crafted by Rajbo in 2003, our second big purchase as we began our new lives in Toronto (first was the massive bed). REDOXON. We bought it a new aluminum case this weekend. The most perfectly designed and sleekly functional covering we could find. Who could have known how it was to end? Like this?
"...With frequent board and cable swapping, you come to appreciate how fragile the SATA connector design really is. We've actually broken connectors on 4 SATA drives/boards so far compared to none with many IDE drives..."

and this is from Tom's hardware, these guys are pros!

- Rajbo
It's all gone. All 30 gigs of music that had been dearly collected over four years. Four years spanning long-distance and cohabitation. Most of my pictures (Thank you, Flickr, for being you). All of our documents. All the porn IS GONE. ALL OF IT. Even my favourite, 'Taco Spice'. I'm so sad. I don't know if REDOXON's drives will allow for extraction. As soon as Papa uttered the words, "I can try soldering it", I bound myself to the worst-case scenario. Rajbo's trying to get stuff running tonight but what will I listen to once this is done? What? Nothing. The only tunes I own as of yesterday evening is the Firehose album on my mp3 player. Thanks, Prince, for recommending it. At least the remains are gold.

Note to SATA - You have my baby's blood on your hands.

tch tch tch ... true! its highly unlikely that REDOXON will remember anything ..

Cut the umbilical cable! perhaps its time for it to move on and see the world ?

If you have another drive of the same model, you can try swapping controller boards with the busted one and pulling the data off it.
If it works, you owe me a copy of 'Taco Spice'.

Thanks for the concern, y'all, I have a feeling it's going to be ok.

Krishna, we don't have a similar drive but we do have super-glue! I'll throw some Spice your way if the tech-gods give us a break this time.
