=== Superhuman_ is now known as Superhuman
Kilosagain. sigh11:39
inetproKilos: wasn't me, I promise11:41
Kilosna was pta electric department11:42
Kilosluckily ext4 seems to handle power cuts well11:43
Kiloswould hate to lose this drive11:44
magespawnhowdy all12:15
Kiloshey magespawn 12:16
magespawnwhats up Kilos? not much chatting for sure12:16
Kilosbad head day and tween rests trying to get old pc working with 98 so i can do the floppy thing12:17
Kilossees a usb stick as floppy D:12:19
Kilosstupid thing12:19
Kilosthen tells you it failed to open it12:20
Kilosim so happy i found ubuntu12:21
Squirm[14:41:24] .:***:. Buffer Playback...12:47
Squirm[14:41:24] .:Kilos:. [14:21:07] im so happy i found ubuntu12:47
Squirm[14:41:24] .:***:. Playback Complete.12:47
Squirmwas in the while 20min the power was off12:47
SquirmKilos: and it's not the filesystem you need to worry about. it's the hardware12:48
Squirmso ext4 may be able to handle it, but what about the hdd itself?12:48
Kilosyes ive lost a few drives after power cuts Squirm 12:48
Kilosbut not one since i went to ext412:49
Kilosmany when i was on winsucks12:49
Squirmpersonally, I don't think the fs has anything to do with it12:49
Kilosi read somewhere that ext4 is more able to handle frequent power cuts12:50
Kilosbut dont ask me where12:50
Kilosyo sakhi lewe jy nog?12:52
Kilosgedink dis jou pc wat hier lurk12:52
sakhiyebo Kilos ek lewe nog besig man.12:53
Kilosmooi, besig is goed12:53
sakhiwe lost international connection (flap) for seconds but we back now.12:54
sakhimy afrikaans is nie so goed nie ek probeer ;)12:55
magespawnSquirm: i think it has to do with file recovery and the writing process when the power fails12:56
Kilosoh sorry sakhi 12:57
Kilosi forget whose who at times12:57
Kilosbut it seems fine to me12:57
Squirmmagespawn: but surely you could format that failed drive and it'll be fine again? But for it not to work?13:13
Kilosnope Squirm some are dead13:17
Kilosi think when the power comes on and it wasnt seated properly it burns a boot sector or something13:17
Kilosbeyong my understanding but ya13:18
SquirmI don't know what format the bootsector is13:20
Kilosmbr is machine code methinks. i also dont know what the boot sector is13:21
magespawnSquirm: sometimes yes13:24
magespawni think that  tha way fs tells the drive to write affects it when the power goes off13:25
Kilosremember one used to have to park drives13:40
magespawnyup and with win 95 the os did it for you, i think it was win 9513:54
Kilosnow i think thats where the prob came in if power cut before parking13:56
Kilosdunno how linux handles it13:57
magespawnnot sure myself13:58
Kiloshehe howerver it does a better job13:58
Kilosbbl gonna try a unetbootin flash14:16
