Hardware failures suck.

I’m now in the waiting time to get all of the replacement hardware that I’ve returned under warranty in the past few weeks. I’ve had to send back 2 x 160Gb Maxtor SATA drives, 1 x Digium TDM400P VoIP FXO and 1 x BenQ 20.1″ LCD screen. The fun continues. The hard drives started pulling read errors and on a full format came up with bad sectors – very bad for data – even though they were less than 18 months old! The FXO card developed a fault where it wouldn’t pass audio, and the LCD screen developed a couple of bright pixels.

This means I’m currently stuck using my trusty 12″ PowerBook G4 (even with the dodgy Superdrive!) until I get my screen back. When will it end 🙂
