So didn’t want to say anything earlier when I heard @dick_turpin ‘s bad news. Some of you maybe wondering why I’ve been quiet over the last few months. I was hospitalised shortly after my birthday with Septicaemia which was caused by Cellulitis in my right leg. I was in hospital for five weeks on loads of different drugs until I was well enough to go home. But then I had to go back to the hospital everyday for another week and half of IV fluids (Cont)
So I've pretty much dropped off the social media space for the second half of last year, I have to say I didn't miss staring into the cesspool that is Facebook and Twitter and my mental health benefitted hugely for it. Now we are starting a new year I've decided to ditch both Twitter and Facebook and with Google + being pulled in August that just leaves the Federation so I'm embracing it fully this year.
So it would appear I've lost my Jedi Skills!! New external Samsung SSD ordered, nothing important on the drive, most of which I can get back from backups elsewere and the rest is probably stuff I could have cleared off ages ago.
So tried to resurrect an external HDD this afternoon. I dropped it from waist height to carpet. When I plugged it into the laptop I was greeted with the bleep sound of the read arm motor initialising and not being able to reset the arm position. I thought read arm is stuck just needs moving. When I plugged it back in after removing the case & moving arm back to the edge of the platter. The arm did move & the drive span up however it just seeked for 5mins. & went into power save not mounting.
I can't have @Theru going this alone.
