Boot Disk Errors

I was wondering the other day how long it had been since I bought and installed my Crucial M4 Solid State Drive. I was debating whether or not I should buy a bigger one (so I could install HOTS without having to uninstall other stuff).

I think I've been using my current SSD for about 5184 hours. I worked this out by having my PC lock up and die every hour and yell "BOOT DISK ERROR" at me all of yesterday. In between crashes I managed to determine that 64GB Crucial M4 SSD's have a bug that makes them stop responding once an hour after they reach 5184 hours of running time. Fortunately it's a simple firmware upgrade to fix it. So I guess I can't use this as an excuse to upgrade to a bigger SSD just yet.

Promoted: Yes, There was an Egyptian Pyramid in Rural Australia with a Basement Full of Human Teeth

The World in Miniature wasn’t abandoned, however, it was empty. Outdated exhibitions on unloved grounds. Our detour seemed destined to be a disappointment. Then we got to the basement of the pyramid, and that’s where we found all the human teeth.
