No firewire for me, I guess

Hmmm... Seems like every time I plug in my terabyte backup drive into the new PC using firewire, every 20 minutes I get the BSOD about some sort of Power Management Failure. Which sucks because the transfer rate over FW is much better than USB 2.0.

Plus, this morning I woke up to find that Vista had failed to activate because this serial number had already been installed on another PC, namely the one before the current one. So I had to call Microsoft to get it activated properly. I didn't realize John was a popular name in India.

Plugged the backup drive back into the server. It's slower in transfer rate, but at least it doesn't crash my PC.
