The official blog of the Saved Content site

The aim of this blog is to collect and archive my selected thoughts, ideas, feelings, reactions, and opinions on subject matters that pique my interest. These entries represent initial drafts that may contain grammatical and spelling errors and whose substance and position could still change, and which, at some point, I could decide to put together into in-depth articles that will be posted on the main Saved Content and Poverty Sucks sites.

Planned and Unplanned Storage Upgrades and Replacements for 2013

We purchased a Compaq Presario B1200 series notebook (specific model was B1293TU) for my wife in the middle of 2008. We finally bought a replacement laptop in December of 2011 and gave this old one to our daughter. On New Year's Eve of 2012, after more than 4 years of heavy use, its hard drive finally failed.

We have a PC we use to store almost all our family's files, our main desktop PC which I simply named Storage. The last time this was in use was April 10, 2012. That was the day I came to the conclusion that the hard disk of our Storage PC was failing.
