This day in history from:

From scrap...

So I had this "scrap" 120 Gb Hitachi hard drive that was Scarlett's former storage, right?

I wanted to play around with it to see if it can still be salvaged.

While reviving Scarlett, I put the drive into one of my enclosures and hooked it up to one of the PCs downstairs. Got it reformatted but upon a surface scan, it was replete with a lot of errors.

So I hooked it up to Scarlett again to reformat it for OS X. It was successful but I know those bad sectors will haunt me in the future.

So after the reformat, Time Machine kicked in and asked if I want to convert this disk to my Time Machine back up disk. Since I had nothing to lose anyway, I went for it.

Took some time for the initial back up to complete since I already used up about 34 Gb in Scarlett's new hard drive.

But the drive is still alive, mind you. And I'm still observing it closely. Anyway, it's just the back up drive and as I said before, I really don't have anything lose at this point.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
