Maybe just not old enough Liutauras. Don't you have to defrag Windows file systems any more? It's been a decade since I used one so I have no idea, but I sure remember having to do it quite regularly on the Windows 2000 machine I used to run 'back in the day'.

Oh, I am old enough for that, but I used better technique back in those days: format c: /s

It used to take only around 2 hours for complete reinstall instead 12 hours...

I've had my home Windows machine for 7 years now and I've never defragged it. The C drive is only 1/3 full, though.

It used to be fun to watch the little squares change colour.

You must have more patience than me Campbell, instead of admiring the little squares changing colour I used to get more and more frustrated wondering if the damn thing would ever finally get defragged. But I've mellowed in my old age. Now when I run it I just let it go do it's thing and it gets done when it gets done.

Since I hardly ever use Windows®, I had almost forgotten about the little squares.

Microsoft changed the defrag tool so it doesn't show the coloured squares any more. Actually, it doesn't show much of any kind of progress dialog or bar. So either users complained about the little coloured squares, or Microsoft decided it would make the change on its own. I can't recall for sure which version of Windows they made that change, I just noticed it changed in Windows 7. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the tool, but didn't have the patience to let it run to completion. Bottom line, lot to be said for Linux.......

It's ok. The BIOS lives in the tail. That's how you know where to find it.

Are the stripes on zebras' tails longitudinal or transverse?

Transverse. (I googled it: lots of cool images of zebra rear ends are online.)

Actually: mostly transverse, but there can be a longitudinal anchor for the transverse stripes.

this is what happens when you let the new guy defrag the server... accidentally ruined the striped raid array!

Jesper may actually know the place.
You didn't find one of the Horse's Bum at a small town in South Holland, on the “island” of Voorne, did you?

I shared this with a couple of non-technical people when visiting the zoo. They thought this was cool!
