    OK but then John Connor would never have been born so there's also that to factor in.

    Don't listen to this guy, he's wrong! Most people wouldn't have even noticed

    That's because there's a saying in the SEALs, if you know what we did then we failed.

    This is bullshit! You shot me in the back!

    If you wanted me to shoot you in the front, you shoulda run towards me.

    It's only because there are lines like this that I know most of the rest of TV is ghey.

    Well, woke up this morning to an email from my Synology NAS that one of the drives was failing. Got Seagate Exos X 16TB drives in there that I purchased last year. One drive was DOA and immediately replaced by Seagate, all other ones were fine and are/were working flawlessly until now.

    Called up their tech support and they are going to send me a replacement drive under warranty, so no complaints there. But the fact that this particular drive did not even last 12 months... Makes me a wee bit weary. 50% failure rate in a year? Hmm...

    Well, they used not to be, at least I made an effort not to use them for the longest time. But apparently/supposedly they had cleaned up their act, and since this drive is an enterprise system drive and not really for personal use, I figured I'd give it a shot. The price was decent (a tad above $300 for 16TB), and I was not about to support Western Digital after the shenanigans they pulled last year. Not sure where that leaves me for now. I guess as long as they are willing to swap them out under warranty, it's semi-okay; but I only have a one-disk redundancy in my system, and if ever two of their drives fail at the same time... Probably should change that the next time I replace one of the older/smaller drives.

    Yeah, probably is for the best.

    (Short true story... others and I made a small fortune doing warranty swaps in the mid to late '90's on old Seagate drives... it was a 5 Year warranty back then... technology was moving so fast... by the time the smaller drive failed... they HAD to swap it for a much LARGER drive... we then sold the latest and greatest!)
