Actually, come to think of it, my first hard drive (40MB!) didn't fail, but my second one (60MB in a laptop) did.
And that's why, if you can, you go back to college to get a Bachelor or Masters degree when you get into your late 30's early 40's.
That is the worst possible advice you could possibly give, except I guess for killing yourself.
That is when instead of SPENDING ALL YOUR SAVINGS ON SOMETHING THAT WILL NOT MATTER, you should instead think about switching to consulting and increasing your earnings. Can't find a full-job easily past 40-50? Learn to make people pay what you are really worth for the vast amounts of experience you have, because that is worth a lot, save up what you can and enjoy retirement eventually, possibly a lot earlier than you would have if you burned your money like an idiot getting a business degree so you could be unemployed with all the younger business majors who cannot find jobs either.
When did hard drives not fail? I've had failures since the early 90s, when they were in the 200 MB range.
Well, I'm sure someone will speak up about some tales of DASDs of yore still older than what I've had, but I still remember when Seagate was called "Seizegate" because of the frequency of occasion when one needed to dismount the drive, place it upon a soft surface, and give it a good rap on one corner (perpendicular to the axis of rotation) in order to permit it to spin up. 21MB of ST-225, baby.
Yea, just like our electricity, oh wait. I mean like telephone service, no. Television, that's it, oops. Can't say water or sewer either, I live out of town and have a well, septic, and private trash pickup.
highway system and postal service.
Good luck with that to hold successful revolution would need a significant portion of the citizenry to join you, one guy with a gun is a is target practice.
They just lifted them into place. The big ones might have taken two to four people. If you hadn't noticed that each generation has gotten weaker, lazier, and more morally depraved than the last, ask your parents and/or grandparents -- reserve the afternoon. Thus, by extension, back in ancient times, people had strength, stamina, and willpower that we attribute only to supernatural beings today.
this would be a disaster for America, and CONcast.
Why is it no surprise we are suppose to live in a "free country", " free market" and yet our politicians are pretty much hand puppets just shove your money up their ass and make them dance. And people keep voting for this baboons, and allowing industries and corporations to pretty much OWN them.
I think the only hope we have right now is if enough yuppies get together and actually do something Gaagle has failed at, create another ISP service that is free, open, fast, and cheap.
By "Gaagle" do you mean Google if so what do you mean they have failed they are still expanding and delivering g.b.p.s. internet speeds and prices from other providers they are competing with have dropped where google has gone in and their speeds have gone up to match.
