Drive Replaced

It was a nice, if cool, evening here (we're back from summer to the early part of spring, it seems), so we piled in the van and drove down to Fry's, where I picked up a replacement hard drive to swap for the failed one in my RAID array. Then we had dinner at the nearby Famous Dave's.


The new drive is now installed and busy reestablishing the mirror. Of course, the first thing that I found after rebooting was that I had no network. Fortunately, a trip to the basement to unplug and replug the cable modem and router fixed that problem.

This is good. The last thing I wanted tomorrow was another trip out for a new router...
