More laptop issues ...

If I was a conspiracy theorist, I'd say there was something in Texas that was eating disk drives. The bad news is that the disk drive in my primary laptop started throwing all sorts of read and seek errors while at LSC3 and this was the second drive that I'd seen that had failed down there (Hi Lisa). The good news is that at least it waited until after the con was over to fail.

So, I'm back to carrying around a backup laptop. I actually have two more recent laptops from work, but one is too big and one doesn't have any of my software on it.

I guess the other piece of good news is that the disk drive is still under warranty and I have an RMA from Hitachi already. The bad news is that it was a replacement for the drive that failed in May and they apparently sent me a refurbished drive which I guess wasn't all that refurbished. I may just go out and buy a WD drive from Microcenter.
