Trusty old T23′s hard disk died.
Died as in “tries to boot with PXE, and does not see the disk.”
Died as in “it’s gonna cost us 4000 euros to recover this. or 3500 if we can wait a week. And it’s by no means guaranteed to resurrect a single bit, y’know.”
Died as in “there’s likely something wrong with RAM too. Or the motherboard.”
Loss of MP3s did not hurt. Some newly updated documents did not make it to repository. Which hurts plenty.
Anyway, Mr. IBM, put a T41 my way, now. Next week preferably.
