My external hard drive – the one where I keep my backups and my mp3 collection at home– seems to have gone meet the great HD in the sky.
I do have backups of the stuff I keep there (for the most part, at least), but it will be a pain to recover everything.
I’ve been meaning to get a full RAID solution for this stuff, but never quite liked what I found out there in the stores. Also, I want a stand-alone, one-box kind of thing. Which cannot be too noisy. (Oh and the RAID is meant to be for redundancy, not for extra capacity, this is a backup solution at heart, not a mega-disposable-disk, so RAID-0 solutions are not an option).
So now I’ll have to look at what’s available on the shelves and then carry on the recovery of my old stuff. Sucks!
The pre-wazup Google App Engine app is coming along nicely. I already have user management, along with user preferences storage and I hammered the python-twitter API in order to be able to call it from within the App Engine sandbox. This would be much faster for me, would I be able to do it in Perl, but still Python is proving to be… interesting.
Got a new Undercover Songs episode ready to post but haven’t gotten around to fetching all the links to all the bands and stuff. It will be posted soon, though. At least I hope so, the mp3 disk crash isn’t making this very easy… :-/
The summer concerts’ line-ups are beginning to stabilize. Apparently Paredes de Coura will be the place to be this year.
