If you ever do that again, instead of typing commands into a terminal type them into a text file and run 'em as a script. Much less tedious
The only practical way I see putting an SSD in a Tivo is to do it transparently with an in-line cache. I actually finally found one
- but so far it doesn't seem available out of Taiwan or Hong Kong
I wish I knew someone who speaks Mandarin - I'd happily pay to have them call and see if there was any way to get one here in the US.
And as an aside for the whole noise while sleeping thing, I use this app
on my old iPhone in an iHome clock radio and really like it. Their sounds are completely random with no patterns (first of these "noise generators" where I wasn't focused more on the sound loops than sleeping), and while I initially thought the whole "brain wave" thing was complete hokum, sometimes it gets switched off and if I notice the next day more often than not I didn't sleep as well the previous night. Could be psychically psyco-sematic I guess - either way who cares if I sleep better
