Friday Odds and Ends
In the last six months I have had 3 LaCie d2 drives fail on me just after exceeding their 1 Year warranty. This doesn’t make me the happiest camper. But it does make me glad I practice paranoia and the art of redundant backups. 1 TB drives are going for less than $400 now, so there isn’t much of a reason not to be redundantly backed-up. The lesson learned – back up, back up, and back up. Also, because it seems inevitable that drives will fail and it’s painful replacing them – pay attention to the length of the warranty. LaCie now offers 3 year warranties on the d2 drives. I believe Seagate offers 5. Most others are 1.
This blog has been going strong for just under 3 years now and it’s time for a change. I’ve just installed WordPress on my server and once my design has been churned into a functioning template I’ll be migrating this blog and it’ll be found at www.PixelatedImage.com/blog. I can’t tell you how much dread the thought of this change fills me with, but when it’s done it’ll be the same great content, ad-free, but sexier. And more integrated with my portfolio and other stuff. I’ll let you know when this is about to happen and y’all can pray it doesn’t blow up in my face and horribly disfigure me. If any of you have experience with WordPress and have any must-know tips – send them my way, especially if it involves importing a TypePad blog without going insane.

I’ll be back on Monday morning with another installment of the OnDesign Series and if all goes well should have one each day all through the week. If you have suggestions or questions, fire them my way and I’ll do what I can to incorporate them.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
