ugh, harddrive issues

my 400gig external that I've had since 2006ish wasn't working, bought a new external enclosure and the drive isn't even spinning up
I think/hope that my wife's 1.5tb has it backed up on there, but I really forget (and we can't find its power cord, of course)

Then, just barelysuck it ben, I said it, my computer blue screened. Run the Windows repair, check the advanced details after that failed and the only directory I recognized was from my D drive, aka my previous computer's harddrive. Sure enough, take it out and the thing boots.
So, I have no idea if this will spin up or not. The enclosures I have are IDE only, so I'll need to buy a new SATA one. Probably getting my own large backup after this, and the wife is appropriately researching Cloud services she thinks I will let on my computer (newp).

So yea, Crysis 3 is pretty.

What companies are the hard drives, and when did you buy them? I know that Western Digital has pretty long warranties for some items. One of my hard drives had the same problem as yours, but WD had a 5 year warranty on my drive (Caviar Black) and I was able to replace it. So might be good to check. :)

Well many drives have different amount of years for warranty. Just my specific model happens to be 5 years. Could be more or less for you.

Yeah, we're "lucky" that the issue is not as bad as other houses in the area, with the foundations already all fucked up and everything. When that happens, they apparently give out estimates of up to 50k sometimes, because they basically need to bulldoze through the whole thing. Better off trying to sell the fucking house at that point...
Stupid termites, they appear to be one of those seemingly utterly useless living creatures on this planet, like mosquitoes or Miami Heat fans.

Re: Dear LiveJournal,

Postby JaoSming on Sat Apr 13, 2013 6:13 am

So I have now finished my first residency for my psychology graduate program. To try and sum it up easily, it is a non-traditional program while still accredited and all that. Basically I work with 4 mentors and take an individualized course with each. We negotiate what papers or products I will be doing and their due dates....and really that is the entirety of the required structure for the program.
Of course, if you want to get licensed by your state, there are more rules to follow with courses taken, course descriptions, and sometimes the work done and texts used. Since I am in-state though, most of this is already done.

So in all, I set it all up so I do not have any required mid-course due dates, all my courses will end with me sending the mentor/teacher/instructor all my papers and such from the semester at once. For workload, reading is up to me, but I need to prove that I did learn graduate level information of course. Paperwise, this first semester is usually the toughest on papers. 3 of the courses are going to require a healthy 30-40 pages of work, while the last one is going to up in the 50s range.
The first two courses are due in early June, with the other two due in early and late July. Should be fun (Y) (Y)

So are employers actually allowed to let people go before the probation period? Because I always thought that it had to be a mutual agreement; but maybe that was just with the jobs I had.

Hopefully something better presents itself soon.

Q can answer for his exact situation but I'll assume it's unlikely to be an actual enforced contract (or silly regulatory provision like you guys have) but instead a meaningless designated status. Though Q does live in California. But IIRC that's surprisingly an at-will state. It might still be some "loophole" and that's why they made it semi-official but I even doubt that.

For the most part in the U.S. you can be fired at any time for any reason. (Outside of criminal stuff by the employer, discrimination, etc.) I'd imagine Q's surprise is more about how they didn't bother to give him the entire period since they went through the bother of telling him about the period and setting up the concept. For the most part an employer takes you through to the end of the period because well, they've already set it up and you're already there. Unless something crazy happens and they need to start cutting people, you're shadowgrinning the place up, etc.

You guys have a law in place that from my understanding seems to create an actual legal "probationary period" definition that ties into labor laws. Like I said about Q's place, not knowing California law, I assume it's more of a "job title" than actual legal designation.

EDIT: From checking around regarding California, seems like they are indeed at-will and have no such designations. And the best part is that it looks like the State and their Universities use probationary periods to get around their CBAs.

My last job was a union job and i felt the same way about it. people took advantage of it and it sucked for the people that actually worked hard

and yes, California is an at-will state. the "probationary period" is almost a formality because they can fire you/you can quit at any time for any reason. i was there for about 2 1/2 months and i still felt like i hadn't fit in yet. i was getting stressed out because i felt that the managers didn't think i was doing a good job. I had a different set of skills than what they wanted. they want a workhorse to dump all their boring data entry/excel work on that they don't want to do (or don't have time to do). It wasn't the work i wanted to do, but hey it was work. i was willing to do it because i felt like there was room to grow with the company and i knew eventually i would be able to get into a more creative role but obviously i didn't last long enough to get there.

They said i was probably better fitted for a different position within the company that's more customer oriented and suggested i reapply to be a cashier LOL
fuck that

This is the entire point of unions, to protect older and worse workers at the expense of everyone else. Well, that, and to skim off the wages of all the employees while colluding with management.

Oh, and originally it was also to keep dark skinned people out of jobs.

Picking up too much of the slack or working too hard should hopefully get you labeled "unmutual" and a friendly lecture because you're stealing from the veteran workers.

Wrong. It gets you that "good job!" at the end of the day from everybody else who sees it happen, and "great teamwork" from the managers. Then it turns into an expectation while everyone else slacks off because "you can do it." It also gives you leverage. :wink:

So shadowgrin you are right, I should ninja-steal the meat and spoil the damn BBQ.

Of course you're not invited. Just imagine the humiliation he would feel about his failure of a son when his guests ask about you, then imagine how you would feel when his guest ask about you, the failure, if you were there.

Welp, finished yet another semester of school, this time to add on a certification so I can actually have the job I was offered next year.

The older I get, the more of a pain in the ass school is. I got everything done early for once but man, I just couldn't have given less of a fuck by the end.

Didnt have much choice. I couldnt find any job, even a shitty one, so I had to find a way to get paid. My best skill that isnt sports is having patience with kids so I had to go in to teaching. Don't get me wrong, I love the job and I have no doubt I did the right thing, but I could've done this job without the three years of classes.

I can't wait. The last time I went, it was when Blake Griffin was out the entire season and every sports store glowed purple and yellow. I have a month in the states before I start my semester, so hopefully I'll be able to spend a bit of time in Orange County again.
