grandparents--;

My grandmother passed away on Monday at 78, after a long struggle against a very spread cancer. She was very strong and lived through many surgeries most people wouldn't at that age. After such a struggle we weren't shocked or surprised but we are saddened by the loss and will still miss her.

She was very intelligent and loved to learn, although her academic life was cut short after primary school by her mum (my great-grandmother) who insisted she drop useless things like education and become a full time housewife. Other strengths of her were her great pasta and her very acute sense of hearing. Word is that she was able to hear ants eating her plants away. Must have been a quiet neighbourhood.

I don't know what kind of music she was into because she listened to pretty much everything, but I always remember her telling us about one of her earliest dates with my grandfather when they went to the city to see a Bill Haley gig. So have a bit of that in her memory.

Mildly related: It's curious how it's at funerals you end up meeting relatives you never knew existed.

I think I've been hearing a click of death from my laptop's drive ._.

If I buy a new drive, how difficult is it to duplicate this one's exact contents into the new one? It would be bad for my schedule to have to reserve a whole weekend installing Windows and getting everything back to where it was.

What might make a solid, durable choice for a new drive?

Could someone provide any advice?

My fifteen-months old cousin can't yet talk, however he already owns an Android tablet.
