Journal: Stupid WDC, UPS & MBE

The other day the Western Digital Hard Drive died in my Dual-733 Win2k box. (Note: I have several boxen, including a Linux, BSD and Mac OS Box). So I filled out the RMA form on Western Digital's website, and I took my hard drive to the local Mail Boxes Etc to be shipped via UPS to Western Digital's repair office.

No problem, I thought, as the lady packaged the drive and RMA number. Well, it's been a week, and UPS has never received any record of the shipping address I sent. Nor has WDC gotten my hard drive yet...well, I guess I'll have to run to Mail Boxes Etc, and see what they'll give me...Update coming soon.

Update: 8/22 It turns out that Mail Boxes Etc, changed my shipping number and WDC was slow on updating their computers. The new drive is scheduled to arrive at my house this afternoon.

Experiments must be reproducible; they should all fail in the same way.

Working...
