Here's a technical question:

I've downloaded and deleted dozens of gigabytes of files over the past 2 years or so on my laptop - does all of this adding and subtracting files really put a lot of wear and tear on the harddrive?

And technical question #2:

What is the "average" lifespan for a VERY heavily used laptop? Mine is almost 2 years old, and has probably spent 75% of that turned on and/or in use. I want to try to anticipate when I will need to buy another one. This laptop is my "main" computer. Basically I treat it like a desktop, always on, always plugged in to the internet, and it is my main DVD player as well. And it's a dell.


Two years is a good breaking point. Ultimately it depends on how well you maintain it, though file sharing and tons of downloads tends to cause the most damage. For instance, I know more then a couple people who's PCs last less then I year primarily due to, Limewire, Myspace and relying completely on the default virus protection. I'd start setting aside money for a new laptop, but as long as you keep your machine clean and defrag often, and use a cooling station, it could last who knows how long.

Oh, and backup your data.

Does someone have English-subbed episodes of the 1987 NHK Taiga Drama "Dokuganryu Masamune" with Watanabe Ken?

Thanks! Just Kidding

Sorry,I only have 2 episodes of D. MUSAMANE.
It has been about three years that this forum script got started and back then it was mostly about Komyo Ga Tsugi! It is now May of 2009 and I am downloading KGT, my download of Komyo Ga Tsuji is at 80.5%
I have several episodes at 100%, some in the 90 percent range. Those I can burn to DVD and watch. I have 19 that are below 80% and they wont open or are to digitized to play well.
I'd really appreciate it if anyone can seed or copy the episodes to DVD and I will comp you for them.

That's no so exactly, but let's just tell about "some problems" in Eastern Europe, non-quite-understandable for another parts of the world.

Ok, let's stop on this if no-one can help.

I apreciate Your trying, honorable sirs.
