[01:15:03] -!- Bytram|alt [Bytram|alt!~a6b50380@166.181.t.ytn] has joined #qa
[01:15:08] <Bytram|alt> back!
[01:15:26] <Bytram|alt> Looks like the disk copy completed at 6:13 PM EDT.
[01:17:08] <Bytram|alt> I am now running the ddrescue command with the retries option...
[01:17:19] <Bytram|alt> ddrescue -r 50 -v /dev/sda /root/backup/hp_internal.img /root/backup/hp_internal.log | tee -a /root/backup/hp_internal_tee.txt
[01:17:49] <Bytram|alt> am now at retry #29 of 50 and still have:
[01:18:06] <Bytram|alt> errors: 1 errsize: 4096 B
[01:31:08] <Bytram|alt> am now at Retry 45 with same results; errors: 1 errsize: 4096 B
[01:43:25] <Bytram|alt> ddrescue --retrim /dev/sda /root/backup/hp_internal.img /root/backup/hp_internal.log | tee -a /root/backup/hp_internal_tee.txt
[01:43:36] <cmn32480> back
[01:43:45] <cmn32480> my oldest was reading to us
[01:43:47] <Bytram|alt> hmmm, same result: errors: 1 errsize: 4096 B
[01:44:05] <Bytram|alt> nod nod
[01:44:38] <Bytram|alt> unless someone has a bright idea, it looks to me that I've gotten all I could off of that drive.
[01:45:11] <cmn32480> I've always been a dim bulb
[01:45:19] <cmn32480> not a bright idea to be had.
[01:45:42] <cmn32480> honestly, I'd call it HIGHLY successful
[01:45:53] <Bytram|alt> I think your self-assessment might be quite shy of the mark
[01:45:57] <Bytram|alt> true that
[01:46:08] <cmn32480> odds are good that the drive had removed any info from that bad spot
[01:46:27] <cmn32480> when SMART found it going bad
[01:46:28] <Bytram|alt> only 4 KiB bad out of 80 GB
[01:46:35] <cmn32480> yeah.
[01:46:43] <cmn32480> the odds are in your favor my friend
[01:46:49] <Bytram|alt> well, smart had been complainging for quite a while
[01:47:10] <Bytram|alt> and there's still the possibility that a chkdsk can work things out on it
[01:47:22] <cmn32480> stick a fork in it and call it done
[01:47:24] * Bytram|alt has no clue how to DO that atm, but still!
[01:47:31] <Bytram|alt> agreed
[01:47:54] <Bytram|alt> weather is going downhill this week, supposed to be in mid/uppers 70s tomorrow
[01:48:06] <cmn32480> that sin't down hill
[01:48:12] <cmn32480> that is the right direction!
[01:48:14] <Bytram|alt> think I'll get some sun while I can... rest of week is cooler, cloudy, and rainy
[01:48:28] <cmn32480> ummm... you do know it is night, right?
[01:48:37] <cmn32480> no sun available at the moment
[01:48:59] <Bytram|alt> daytime high on sat is 67 degreess
[01:49:13] <Bytram|alt> not a good beach day
[01:49:39] <Bytram|alt> actually, today would have been perfect. low humidity and temps around 80
[01:49:54] <cmn32480> I'd kill for that
[01:49:57] <cmn32480> Baltimore, MD, USA - currently 74°F / 23°C, partly cloudy, wind NW at 4 mph, humidity 51% - Wednesday partly cloudy (68°F-85°F / 20°C-29°C), Thursday partly cloudy (68°F-86°F / 20°C-30°C), Friday sunny (68°F-89°F / 20°C-32°C), Saturday sunny (72°F-89°F / 22°C-32°C)
[01:50:01] <Bytram|alt> meet me on the dark side of the moon^h^h^h^h sun
[01:50:12] <cmn32480> heheh
[01:50:39] <Bytram|alt> wasn't sure if that was TOO obtuse; glad you liked it!
[01:50:49] <cmn32480> My suggestion would be that before going to bed this evening, you run the DDrescue on the new laptop
[01:50:57] <cmn32480> and it ought to be done by morning
[01:51:07] <cmn32480> then you can really break it
[01:51:23] <Bytram|alt> good idea, but I still need to complete the windows authentication whatsit
[01:51:40] <cmn32480> do it by phone.
[01:51:53] <cmn32480> takes about 7 min
[01:52:11] <Bytram|alt> oh? Oh. DOH!
[01:52:26] <cmn32480> I know that it is about 7 min, because I used to do them all the time in a previous life.
[01:53:02] <cmn32480> obviously you would ahve to drop off here to do taht
[01:53:15] <Bytram|alt> nod nod
[01:53:40] <Bytram|alt> it's gonna have to wait. did not sleep well at all last night and am truly exhausted.
[01:53:59] <Bytram|alt> sun comes up too early for me to sleep in:/
[01:54:07] <Bytram|alt> appreciate the help and support!
[01:54:10] <cmn32480> hehe
[01:54:17] <cmn32480> my alarm goes off to early for me to sleep in
[01:54:29] <cmn32480> always here to help
[01:54:34] <Bytram|alt> must be broken, throw it away!
[01:54:56] <cmn32480> I'm gonna see if I can sort out my expenses debacle
[01:55:02] <cmn32480> then head to bed myself
[01:55:12] <cmn32480> JIC, I'
[01:55:27] <cmn32480> ll start logging into #qa again.
[01:55:52] <cmn32480> I'm generally on most of the day from the office, but availability is hit or miss depending on what I am working on
[01:55:56] <Bytram|alt> shutdown -h now
[01:56:08] <cmn32480> correct
[01:56:23] <cmn32480> as a side note, the same command exists in Windows
[01:56:28] <Bytram|alt> sry, was trying to figure out the syntax on the other system/monitor
[01:56:48] * Bytram|alt doesnot recall seeing it in XP; must be a Win 7 thing
[01:56:56] <cmn32480> nope
[01:57:00] <cmn32480> been there since Win2k
[01:57:21] <Bytram|alt> huh. just fdound it in windows\system32
[01:57:25] <cmn32480> shutdown -s -t <time in seconds>
[01:57:38] <Bytram|alt> I normally use psshutdown that I got from the SysInternals folks
[01:57:44] <cmn32480> for a restart
[01:57:46] <Bytram|alt> can also tell it to hibernate or suspend
[01:57:52] <cmn32480> shutdown -r -t <time in seconds>
[01:57:57] <cmn32480> yes
[01:58:09] <cmn32480> shutdown ?
[01:58:12] <cmn32480> gives all the options
[01:58:19] <cmn32480> good old DOS help
[01:59:11] <cmn32480> get some rest BYtram
[01:59:34] <Bytram|alt> it looks extremely similar to the psshutdown utilitiy -- MS probably promoted and included it!
[01:59:44] <Bytram|alt> and sweet dreams to you, too!
