Much of yesterday was spent transplanting chryseis' hard drive into nyx.

There was a lot of waiting around because I ran a bad block scan on the drive before formatting it. Although it's had a lot less use, chryseis' drive is older than nyx's, if memory serves; it was itself a replacement for chryseis' original drive, but I don't remember precisely when I fitted it. Given the drive's vintage, I didn't want to risk more of the same problems. The scan did actually report a bad block, but it was marked as in use when the filesystem was created, so I think it'll be okay for the few months it has to last.

It's a far noisier drive than the one it has replaced. The plan is to commission nyx's replacement around Easter time, so I won't have to put up with the extra noise for too long, hopefully.

Now that I have a functioning media partition again, I have somewhere to save OCReMix's new album.
