Bit of a short post today, but I wanted to say how grateful I am that we have access to different diagnostic programs. They sometimes test different things or with different methods, which can be useful in tracking down an error, but the biggest advantage is when it comes to hard drives. Right now I'm testing five 1 terabyte hard drives. With our normal diagnostic program, which tests hard drives sequentially, testing these things to our standards would see them finished by, oh, lessee...Saturday. However, using a different diagnostic, I can test them simultaneously, and have them done in time to use tomorrow.

Now if I could only juggle five drives at one time...
