The drive had two USB ports, one for transmissions, and one for extra power from an adapter or a second USB port. It seems using it with only one USB1 port did not produce enough oompfh to make it run stable. It was the power module that collapsed, and the drive seems to have lost all indexing.
None of the partitions (3 ext3 and 1 NTFS) are detected, and I have tried most tools available.
Even if there were info from sites that do not exist anymore, and some personal letters and docs that cannot be replaced, it is more annoying than catastrophic. Shit happens!
I am very aware of backup now; rsync -a is a very useful command.

If you can at least see the partitions in Puppy's copy of gparted, somehow...

With the drive unmounted...

fsck /dev/sdx1 (where sdx1 is the first ext3 partition)
fsck -a /dev/sdx1

...repeat for the other two ext3 partitions.

Not sure what to recommend for the NTFS partition.

I don't think russoodle's site has any issues atm,

Don't know about Grant (smokey01). Haven't seen him in a while which is unusual. All my files on his site are ok.Besides, his server is in the US.

So far, so good on meownplanet.net/puppylinuxstuff, thank dog! My server's in the US too.

What amazes me is the sheer number of hacking attempts on my site, +/- 100-200 on any given day (i receive notifications). A while back, i spent time blocking ranges of IP addresses to try to keep the buggers out, (they're like a plague of bl***y fieldmice!), but ended up blocking genuine users, so that wasn't a successful solution. Negative-thinking bunch of morons - pity they couldn't turn their skills to more positive activities Twisted Evil

I've emailed Grant. They're still trekking around Oz, probably Darwin or thereabouts at the moment but i'm sure he'll get on top of it as soon as he can.

I mailed Grant myself. He's having a blast somewhere up the top end. Good on 'im Smile . He'll sort it out when gets a chance.

I've been through the files on my site and it's untouched. No matter where I point 01micko.com I can't make a difference. Even tried fiddling with the A and the CNAME records but made no difference. The DNS server of the host is compromised so I'm probably not the only one screaming at them on twitter and G+. No response. That is very slack. I'm sure they could outsource AH support on a per incident basis to Inia or Indonesia or somewhere with lower labour rates. Of course I couldn't log in with ftp.01micko.com as DNS points to that Chinese phone sales site. Apparently they have a few disgruntled customers so I wouldn't be surprised if it was a revenge attack! Foolish all the same.

You only need to look at your router logs to see the amount of filth trying to crack you. I get around 200 a day here at home, more sometimes. I do have a small, not well publicised home server but those attempted attacks were going on well before I deployed that. I always keep the router firmware updated. And my server only has port 80 outbound and a secret ssh port opened. My other machines are more vulnerable with things like samba, cups, web browsing, chat and ftp transactions going on.

Time to backup on BluRay, FatDog 64 fixed the limit to sessions after 8G and it would have only cost 5 USD for 7 Bluray discs to backup full drive. Harddrives have let me down once to many times.
If you really must save data MDisk media are made to last 1000 years and they now have BluRay media. price is high. No practical limit for one file size full 23.5G can be one file.
Also try to disk image full drive before more repairs.

All goes to show the internet is very fragile. I chuckle when people say the internet will always be available to the ordinary user. It was invented for U.S defense purposes, is paid for by porn, and can easily be shut down by thousands of hackers.
It is time we replaced the internet with a gloabal network of CDs sent via post.

Guys, use http://smokey01.com/menu to access Grant's site...it hasn't been hacked, nothing's amiss. His host's php upgrade broke the other page, that's all, and he hadn't got around to putting in a redirect.

You lucky people. Carrier pigeons are faster than the dialup we have on this side of the tassie. Smile

RFC 1149 (Initial Proposal for IPoAC)
RFC 2549 (QOS Amendments to IPoAC)
RFC 6214 (IPv6 Amendments to IPoAC)

I wish Verizon would implement RFC 1149 + 2549 here in NC. I honestly believe it would be faster than the "4g" service I'm supposedly getting... it's gotten so bad that every time I try to load a page, my mind plays back the sound of a 56k modem... ugh >.<

Blasted things, all they carry is disease Sad
