comment Recovering data from a damaged hard-drive: the “freezer trick”
I have the same problem right now and I have been to a local shop. I asked them if they could replace the circuit board and they told me they don't: I'd better look for an identical disk on ebay and try it out myself. Even then, there is the chance that the information on the two boards does not match exactly. They estimate the success probability around 10%. I am now thinking about the freezer trick as a last option before saying good-bye to my hard disk. Luckily I have a partial back-up of the data (but a complete one would be better).

What about replacing the circuit board? Isn't this also something one should try before opening the hard disk?

comment Why is FreeBSD deprecating GCC in favor of Clang/LLVM?
"GCC is not fully-standards compliant": Isn't it possible to use compiler switches to enforce compliance to a given standard?

comment How to get root inside of vi?
What will happen if sudo asks you to enter your password? Will this be managed by vi / vim?
