badblocks takes over a day

It’s almost been running for 24 hours, and it’s not done yet.

How many patterns does it do? Looking at the Arch Linux Wiki, there’s two more patterns left.

I won’t be using that drive for a while.

By default it does four passes. Which is 4*2, it has to read everything back.

Not sure I need to finish it, but I probably will let it finish anyways. Funny Arch Linux Wiki says it can take a couple of days for some devices, might take four days to complete.

It’ll probably take over 60 hours. The first four operations took around 30 hours.

Amazon “makes” UPSes now

Probably rebranded. But from who? CyberPanel is a dick, I bought one, tried fixing it by replacing the battery, the battery is almost impossible to attach. I probably could of brought it back without plugging the battery back in.

I need a UPS for my new external drive, possibly any other drive that isn’t plugged into one. The computer UPS is probably full, for battery power, and the other UPS is too. I have another one, but I’d rather keep it over there. Even though it’s not really needed over there.

Does my old one have cable jacks? The Amazon one doesn’t, no surge protection if it doesn’t have coax. Not enough plugs to leave the surge protector plugged in.

Bad reviews because it doesn’t auto restart after getting power and it depleted the battery. I could care less about that. No idea if mine auto restart. The power might of never went out long enough.

Don’t need a cable jack, just move the surge protector, plug it in where the fan is plugged in. The fan isn’t in use. Does the fan really need to be plugged directly into the wall?

Good idea, buy that UPS instead of the Switch controller, I think it’s slightly cheaper.

If you plug a vacuum cleaner into it, will you start a fire? I don’t vacuum, but my sister does. It doesn’t seem to matter if you plug it into a surge protector. There’s only like four things plugged into the surge protector.

Where is the software? Wondering if there’s a Linux version. Says it’s below, but I don’t see it. Found it, and Windows and Mac only.

Don’t really need the software. Well, maybe to disable the alarm. Just attach it to the Windows VM, change the settings, and hope the program doesn’t need to be running for the settings to work.

If you have a patched Nintendo Switch on a low enough firmware

You will soon be able to run homebrew on it. No CFW, which means no NSPs, which means no game demos.

Where is TX’s exploit for the patched units? Oh right, they never had one. You won’t be booting CFW until somebody else releases an exploit to do so.

As soon as one of the free CFWs has EmuNAND, I’m probably ditching SX OS. I might continue using their payload, because I’m to lazy flash my dongle. You can launch other payloads from the SX payload.

Think it’s firmware 4.1.0, 5.x, and 6.0.0.

PANASONIC LUMIX GX9 says the video isn’t as good as other Panasonic cameras. That’s their opinion though.

Better then my camera, it only does 1080p almost 30 FPS. That camera does 4k, don’t know how many FPS.

I’ll need something to buy in 180 days, think that’s how much time they have to dispute it, my eBay listings.

I might decide to delete my eBay and PayPal account before then. Jokes on the scammer(s) if I do that. Jokes on me, when I get a letter from PayPal. Do they even let you close your account if somebody sent you money that is still eligible to dispute it?

Olympus is taking to long to release a new OM-D E-M10. But the latest one does do 4k, so that would be better, and cheaper.

You can’t use it for selfies? Bullshit, that’s what tripods are for. Does it have a WiFi app like my Olympus? That makes it even easier with a tripod. Wait, that might be called a portrait, not a selfie.

It has WiFi, so you might be able to easily take nude photos of yourself. There’s an app for iOS, probably Android too.

The Olympus does HD 120 FPS. Is that 720p or 1080p? Either way, the Panasonic does no video at 120 FPS.

Might not buy anything next month/year

Got to save $100 a month, until the eBay scammer(s) file a dispute. That way, when I lose the dispute, I won’t care, as I’ll have over $400 in my savings. Might not even need to take money from my savings, depending on when they dispute it.

My UniFi AP should support active PoE

It was delivered at the beginning of this year. The only thing that looks like a date code, is on the PoE injector, which is higher then what their site says it needs to be, to support it.

Problem is, PoE managed switches aren’t cheap.

Do they make a three port one? One to connect to the main switch, then another switch for the wired network, that’s the dummy switch, and then the AP.

The Zyxel is $60. Remember reviews on my AP, saying something about the PoE, something to do with the voltage. That’s only 5 ports, I paid that much for a non PoE, 8 port one.

If you don’t want 1000 Mbps, there’s a Amcrest for $40. And I think that’s a dumb switch. Already got one of those. Not PoE though. There was some A brand somebody mentioned on Reddit.

It’s cheaper to use two long ethernet cables, like I’m doing. One for the AP power injector, and the other for the dumb switch.

For some reason, I don’t want to buy the $25 5 port Zyxel managed switch.

Go to bed early?

That’s a good idea. But I have to wait for badlocks to finish, so I can start rclone. Does rsync check checksums?

rclone is more simple, you don’t need to read the help or man page.

How do morbidly obese people tie their boots?

Bending over fucks my breathing up. To out of shape to bend over it. Good thing I don’t have anal sex, on the receiving end. I’d pass out from the lack of oxygen.

I’ll get more care giving hours, if I don’t start exercising. I’ll need somebody to wipe my ass, and tie my boots. I’ll also need them to lift my head up for me. Once all the muscle in my body goes away.

Or I’ll be in a nursing home, unable to move, thanks to no muscles. Probably be blind too.

Going to the doctor is for strong women. They don’t make strong men.

Seagate Backup Plus Hub 4TB External Desktop Hard Drive

Over 70% done running badblocks, and zero errors so far.

Looks like I was right, WD and Seagate fanboys are at war with each other. They buy the other brand, and then post a bad review. Or a lot of people have bad luck. Probably most people that have no issue, don’t post a review.

It came with some Adobe thing, don’t know what CC is. Consumer cock?

Probably doesn’t work in Linux, so it’s useless to me. I don’t do photo editing in Windows, that’s for games only. And the software for my Logitech remote. There’s plenty of photo editing programs for Linux, no need to use a Windows and Mac only program.

Over six hours, and it’s not done yet, maybe it’ll be done in a couple more hours.

On the back of the box, it says you can charge your devices with the USB ports. So all they do is charge? I could plug my USB powered fan in it. If it can charge a phone, it should have no problem powering a fan.

Well, now I know why it takes so long. That was only the first operation. Now it says “Reading and comparing”. It should be done in another 7+ hours. So when I wake up. Almost took 8 hours to write. Probably take just as long to read.

The drive doesn’t support SMART, just like my old Seagate external drive. At least not with smartctl.

Warranty Valid Until February 28 2021

According to Seagate’s site. Got the serial with “lsblk –nodeps -no serial /dev/xxx”.

Might take almost 6 hours. But seeing as my math didn’t work out the first time, probably at least 7 hours.
