Hitachi is shipping 1 terabyte disk drives. How long before the time to fill a disk drive exceeds the drive's MTBF?

Or, to put it another way, Daddy has just managed to make a working copy of the Michael Rosen CD which had some big scratches on it and wouldn't play. The children will hopefully be very grateful in the morning...

RSS feeds which are actually Atom. I know, I should write use an Atom-capable feed aggregator; but I wouldn't buy a tin of beans expecting to find cheese inside.

I have a nice HP keyboard at work. Its best feature is the removable numeric keypad, which I promptly removed and lost, leaving me with a sensibly-sized keyboard. I wanted another one the same for at home. Tricky; it seems HP only made them for a short time. I found one on Ebay and bought it. When it arrived I was surprised to find it was a different layout to the keyboard I already have (UK vs US; \ ` ~ and other symbols are in different places, and there's no # key). But it's the same model and part number as the keyboard I already have! Dear HP, please investigate the concept of unique part numbers.
