Made some geek some geek cufflinks if they really are that. http://www.instructables.com/id/Geek-cufflinks/.

Allow me to describe my 'computer cave' .... (-;

Greetin's y'all!

My 'nym' is DethB4DCaf and THE most important thing you need to know about me is that I am born and bred to be a southpaw [left-handed]. Once you understand THAT, why, everything else about me will eventually make sense... (-; (-;

Disk Utility (Gnome Disk Utility) (palimpsest)

Posted 04-13-2011 at 03:44 AM by spazticclown

palimpsest or Gnome Disk Utility
This utility is great, it can not only check SMART status on your local disk but connect up to a server and check status there.
File -> Connect to server...
Enter the server address and password, your remote drives will be lined up down the left side and you can view SMART status, easy.

The second benefit is the the green circle for SMART status ok, this helps my tired eyes from scanning the console print out from smartctl.
