Archaeological dig, surface The transmitter held in both hands, just to be sure, Tap-Out edged towards the tunnel entrance. So far, so good . A small mech was easily overlooked if he knew how to use his size to hide in shadows and duck down in rubble; he had had lots of practice keeping alive, afte...

Archaeological dig The floor of the artificial cave erupted as a massive hand shot upwards, red fingers outstretched - and Drill rose in a parabola, limbs flailing. His flight was brutally arrested as he was snatched from the air and pulled downwards. The showering debris struck the ceiling before ...

I picked up a portable Seagate 2TB for the gaming laptop as the desktop one is a brick: a really good quality brick. That's in: just as big as and heavy as.

Spent out. Will be saving for a new drive to pop in the gaming pc.

(Sad middle-aged female gamer, neh? But my films and music will be safe!)

Archaeological dig, surface This is it , thought Tap-Out. Stupid way to die. ...and was catapaulted into the open doorway of the pod. Behind him, the chunk of surface continued to move, arcing up and over the low-set pod and bouncing away, end-over-end, towards Chromedome's position . His landing w...

Bought a WD Elements 5TB desktop external hard drive last night and now await delivery. Not too bad a price; I've some cash left and will save up to buy equivalent extra storage to put in the gaming case. I can download from my 2TB drive and then use that to backup my gaming laptop, which needs it A...

Archaeological dig, surface Tap-Out began to run for the nearby pod and found himself unintentionally somersaulting as a laser hit the ground at his very heels; the angle of the strike had skimmed off a piece of the surface layer and lifted him with it. Unfortunately, the piece was about five times...

Archaeological dig, tunnel mouth With extreme caution, Tap-Out peered from behind one of the corrugated sound-baffles guarding the tunnel mouth and, after taking a long look round, face-palmed. Perceptor appeared to no longer be close by. Now, Tap-Out was not a 'bot given to much introspection, but...

Be aware that a lot of external drives now can't be removed from cases and plugged into a PC or USB adapter, as the board is directly attached to the drive. Really? Hadn't picked up on that! Thanks for the tipoff. I looked at multidrive cabs, but they are positively huge and I've just a little desk...

External hard drive for media storage

I need help... Not that kind of help... hm, though... heh... As part of my minimalising process*, I'm in the market to purchase a new desk top external hard drive on which to store my movies and music. Intrigued by the Seagate 8TB, but I'm not sure it's the right one. I've no Blurays; I do have mult...

Archaeological dig, tunnel Rotor shook his head as he walked behind Tap-Out: this had been a good mission right up to the astrosecond those hulking idiots had decided to fight directly overhead; quiet enough and remote enough. Thought we'd got a break from the war! he grumbled to himself. "Oh, frag...

Archaeolgical dig, surface "That's the last of the critical finds," Tap-Out shouted across to his second-in-command, Rotor, who had just stepped out of the habitat/control pod as he exited the storage/lab one. "Come on, we don't have much time!" Rotor glanced up, surveyed the general area around th...

Archaeological dig, surface Tap-Out 'hrumphhed'. Megaton, eh? Well, that was interesting, as he was sure Glyph and Drill would agree, but maybe for differing reasons... "We have electroshields," he said, bluntly to Perceptor . "They'll give us some protection, but we'll need to evacuate." And we'll...

The mech paused, shook his head. "Someone needs to get a message to the dig because, I'll tell you right now, t...

Tap-Out and some more OCs

Archaeological dig, surface Driveshaft was nonplussed. "What? Discovery?" he stammered. Then: "What discovery?" The Autobot guards were trying to hustle him and Fossar towards the pod to the immediate right of the tunnel mouth, but he pulled away from the hand placed on his shoulder by one of them ...

Archaeological dig, surface The five Autobot guards had stood their ground, watching the skies above them with weapons at the ready. They had been half-expecting an attack, because luck had to run out eventually, but they had not been expecting this . " Perceptor ," one of them acknowledged. "I'll ...

The archaeologists had dug this single shaft due to a combination of difficulties that they encountered upon landing at the site at the very edge of the Sonic Canyons, just below the no...

Archaeological dig, Cybertron "A legend..." Drill sent directly to Glyph. Driveshaft, who had clambered up from his trench, took the tray from Drill and, with a grin, ambled away to the steeply-sloping shaft that the team had arduously dug through the layers of waste until they hit the dateable lev...

Archaeological dig, Cybertron Driveshaft became more certain of what he had as he carefully probed around the 'cog': it appeared to be cylindrical, each wide tooth actually a groove along its length. It looked like the other, recovered by Fossar and Ramp in the earliest phase of the project, but wa...

The conviction that he was onto something had kept him going here, in the first strip trench near the centre of the dig, when the others had moved away. The near silence was pu...
