Seagate External Hard Drive

When I received an error message from my laptop "Windows detected a hard disk problem. Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk." I went out and brought an external hard drive to do so. The hard drive, I bought was Seagate Expansion External Disque Externe 1TB USB 2.0 Plug-and-play. However, when I got home with this new hard drive I could now longer access Windows to back up my information.

I did however back up all my information on my desktop computer, so all of that is now safe. The Seagate hard drive seems to work fine. The only issue, I had was the software included with it. A program by the name of Memeo was the included program. I later realized that was only a free trial and I also realized that it doesn’t automatically back up data to the external hard drive, it automatically backs up to an online storage of 1GB. This is some what disappointing. The main purpose why I wanted this hard drive was to back up my data. I like backing up myself but if it did include software (that wasn’t just a trial) it would be neat having my data automatically updated but at the same time that would probably slow down the process of my computer while I’m trying to use it. It would be neat if it automatically updated in the night, while I was sleeping.

Even though the software that was included was a disappointment, it still serves the main purpose of why I bought it and the main purpose being to back up my data. Logic probably tells you, I bought this device to back up my data easily. I don’t have time to back up on other derives for instant a DVD. If I had the time to back up on devices such as DVD’S then I probably wouldn’t have typed this article.

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Bundle

I got Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Bundle for yet another successful year at school. I've haven't play it much yet but from what I played of it, it's an amazing game. I played Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock back in the day but only with the guitar. I only wanted the whole band set. Stores no longer sell the instruments because there's not that popular anymore. It's basically the same game just edited a little and some new tracks. They keep releasing new games until people got sick of it. They are going to need to some up with something a little difference, I'm expecting a new release in about two years but until then I managed to get Warriors of Rock Bundle online on Amazon. 

WWE Legends of Wrestlemania Gameplay

 I started playing WWE Legends of WrestleMania a while back and decided to film and upload some gameplay videos. The first video is my first match: Bret "Hitman" Hart vs. Mr. Perfect. The second video is on how to get the Grapplemania Achivment. You need to win a match using only grapple attacks. Only use the R button attacks. Change the difficulty to easy. I found it easier using Hulk Hogan against Big John Studd because Hulk Hogan has the most overall (91) and If I recall correctly Big John Studd has the least over all (79). Don't do finishers it will wreck this.  

Bret "Hitman" Hart T-shirt & Autograph

I've ordered yet another Bret "Hitman" Hart t-shirt during The Hitman's WrestleMania Sale. I ordered the new Sharpshooter shirt and got a free 8 by 10 WM26 tribute personalized autograph picture.

The Herder Memorial Championship: EastLink CeeBee Stars vs. Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts

The Herder Memorial Championship: EastLink CeeBee Stars vs. Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts Game 1 Sunday, March 27, 2011 was a decent game and good hockey despite Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts winning. It was also a good series. Mile One Cetnre in St. John's didn't have a team so aside from a couple of AHL games that's basically the only men’s hockey we get all year. I have filmed the Pre-game, Awards ceremony and the Anthem's singing. It’s in my video down below. 

Dell Inspiron 1501: help needed!

When I start up my Dell Inspiron laptop, I get a black screen with an error message: "Windows detected a hard disk problem. Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk." I could however still start Windows. I later got the error message: “SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 4
WARNING: Immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent.
Press F1 to continue. 
I pressed F1 as it told me to and all I'm still getting is a black screen with a white cursor in left corner. I could no longer start Windows.

I've tried many options, including putting in the Vista installation disk in and trying the tools on that except install the OS, I don't want to lose my data if at all possible. Unfortunately none of the options or so called solutions worked. If you know of any possible solutions, please comment below.

Blog Rush

Now that I have made my final decision to continue blogging on Blogger, I'll post a good bye final post on WordPress. I got a lot of stuff to blog about. I'm going to blog about events I went to such as; Salmon Festival, MusicFest, LCW and so on. I'm also going to blog about some technology unboxings I did. Basically, I'm going to blog about all my recent YouTube videos and get my blog up to date. I also have some other good blog ideas in mind; I have a couple of ones about politics in the works. I also have some blog surprises in the works along with the politics ones. Along with updating my blog, I’m also going to be updating my Flickr. Stay tuned in the coming days as there is going to be a lot of posts within the same time. Once I get my blog up to date, I’ll try my best to keep my blog along with all my online content updated as things such as events happens and when ever I upload YouTube videos, I'll be sure to have a blog post follow up. I’m looking forward to the coming days.
