fun and games

I had yet another Maxtor hard drive failure yesterday which as it was part of a RAID0 array on my server meant I lost the whole damn lot again.

My backup was 2 months out of date but it meant no email or web server (still no email!). This is the 3rd maxtor drive to die on me within a year. Each one has been replaced under warranty but this one is only 3 months old. Not good. Not sure I'll risk buying them again. Had a late night last night trying to re-install the most important parts of the system.

When will I learn that RAID0 arrays are more trouble than they're worth.
