after 2.9 years half of them will have died.
i have two colo'd servers, each with two disks, hosted in a well
cooled and ventilated datacenter, all four disks have had less than 75
load cycles, have never been hotter than 29 degrees celsius - but regardless
of that nice environment, the barracudas suck.
the second out of my four Seagate Barracuda 7200.14
is dying, after a measly 2.9 years of constant operation.
the first of the bloody things died precisely at the 2 year mark.

english is pretty inconsistent - but hold the presses: this can't be
news to anybody.
this is pretty silly but fun, maybe even news: a few years after
the austrians, the czech now also accept pastafarian traditional headgear!
this is pretty cool and not silly at all: the czech team of developers around
Jan Mate (inf-it.com) have developed two pretty calendar and contacts
web applications that talk calDAV and cardDAV - and it's all self-contained
ECZEMAscript: you park it somewhere (not necessarily on a server), configure
it a little and hey presto, it'll talk to your calendar server.
even better: both CalDavZAP and CardDavMATE are
open and free software under the (A)GPL.
i use both occasionally (with my radicale server), works really well.
colanders off to these guys!
