admittedly the people here in are a lot smarter and better at thisthan i i figured this would be the best place to ask:

in ubuntu 16.04 i am trying to copy media files over to another hdd. i've tried cp & rsync. most recently:

rsync -av /source /destination

one file showed input/output error (5)

then my computer restarted and said it had a system error.

i'm pretty sure the source hdd is bad, because it shows 1000+ bad blocks

anyway to force move? or are the files ruined.

So at 37 years old, my Friday nights have come to sitting at the laundromat washing dog beds/ blankets.

finishing this one cup of coffee...then going to get another cup...then get working on these shop drawings so the guy can submit for the permit monday...why is everything a 🔥 ?

why do i work for a fortune 500 company and still have to refill the water in the coffee machine by hand? 😒

it was really interesting hearing the SYSK guys break down the finer intricacies of cuss words in their latest podcast.

Dear Google,
I do not know how to speak Korean or indic. Nor do I have any need to ever type in those languages. Why do you insist I download those keyboards? I was born, raised and live in NC. The fact I can use an English keyboard is a small miracle.

i think i've got one:

gaming: getting shot by a sniper on a roof top while playing capture the flag.

gameing: dying of diphtheria.
