This might take a while…

So I have a Drobo now since last week. It’s working beautifully and just as advertised. Love it!

Originally, I had two 500GB drives and two 400GB drives in there. But I already ran out of space so I decided to sell both 400GB drives to a friend and replace them with 1.5TB ones. So far so good, but Drobo takes quite a while to reorganize and protect my data. Time to relax and drink a cup of tea. Or two. Or a hundred.

This might take a while…

Precaution is the mother of the porcelain box

Last week I dropped my iPhone. But it didn’t hit the ground. True story.
How can this be, you ask? Simple: I was wearing my headphones, which came with the phone, and they are just short enough and also tough enough to prevent my iPhone screen from possibly breaking into a thousand pieces.
So I was walking, and selected a new track and wanted to put it back into its protective sock, when it slipped out of my hand and started tumbling down in slow motion (I swear it was really going in slow motion like in a dramatic movie!). I already expected to hear an unpleasant shattering noise that would hurt my ears. My ears were hurt, but by the increased gravitational force of my headphones instead! Looking down, I found my preciousssss iPhone dangling just an inch above the marble floor. Whew!
