I installed my new hard drive today. For some reason, I couldn't get it to format with more than 1 partition, so I went with that. Actually, the only reason I wanted more than 1 partition was that my old drive had 3 partitions, and that was only because when I originally set it up, there were limitations imposed by the operating system... I'm making a virtue of necessity here, but I think a single partition is fine. I may change my directory structure somewhat, though. The new drive is noticeably faster and quieter than the old one, and of course it has oodles of free space.

It remains very cold here. The official start of spring is sometime next week; spring-like weather may take a bit longer.
