Well, my craptop’s hard drive is completely dead as of this morning. Can’t say I’m surprised, really. The funny thing is, Firefox seems to run much faster off the live disk than it did before. Could be that hard drive was slowing down my system more than I thought. (Could also be Firefox addons, but the whole UI seems snappier.)
EDIT: Er — perhaps not. Turns out fsck is pretty nifty. Who knew?
Yay for new lease on drive life. (Now taking bets on lifespan.)
