    ...a Windows user. One of our servers died. We needed files, hence the McGiver-like attempt to get at them.

    I dislike Palm Beach County greatly.


    If we had been using Macs, I doubt this would have happened.

    looks like a dirty dirty mess. persuade your people to get XServes.

    Yes, actually. Two little 8GB disks. In all fairness, these were very old...why they were holding valuable data I have no idea.

    Honestly, the Snapper had EDO RAM in them! I nearly choked.

    Heh, they poke fun at me when I start working on my iBook, XServes are not in the picture.

    Why woudl this have not happened had u been using xserves? They are hard drives? Are they not? Do xserves have some magical data system to never have drive faults? Why didn't u back up the data on DAT or DVD or god you know...RAID? Why bash a windows server.

    'Cause I was frustrated - bashing Windows always seems to help. Of course XServes would be just as likely to end up with a bad HDD.

    I didn't back data up because I assumed our IT department was doing that...like they do with our other servers.
