hard drive failure…

ugh, hard drive issues again…

my main storage drive failed on me and so it’s time now for me to start thinking about how i am going to solve my storage needs. how much storage is enough these days? i was surviving with around 500GB, but it was starting to feel pretty cramped. i’ve also been doing very bad things and i think it’s time for me to take storage and backup more seriously. no one ever does, and i’ve been lucky thus far, but i guess the time is right.

i’ve been toying with the idea of getting some kind of NAS device for my main storage and a large-ish removable drive for faster backups. we’ll see how this works out.

shaghai kiss

i thought that shanghai kiss was recommended to me, but the person who i thought recommended the movie to me said that he didn’t have any recollection of recommending the movie to me, but did see it and did like it. anyway, i saw the movie over the weekend.

i’m not crazy about the star, ken leung. there’s just something about him that i don’t like. maybe it’s just because he is ugly and i can’t imagine him picking up all the girls that he does throughout the movie.

anyway, hayden panettiere (of heroes fame, but really should get props for bring it on: all or nothing and remember the titans), was great in the movie. her dvd interview wasn’t quite as polished as i had hoped it would be, but the girl can act.

if you haven’t seen it, go check it out.
