comment How to use hdparm to fix a pending sector?
@Nino I recently came across a drive with some pending sectors. The first one (identified by a SMART short test) I couldn't read and seemed to clear up with a write (pending sector count decreased). The second one (identified by a SMART long test) I could read just fine, but the cleared up with a write. Oddly, the reallocated sector count never increased (still at 0). I've got 3 more pending sectors, but SMART tests (short and long) have failed to identify them. I suspect some Western Digital firmware considers some sectors suspect until they are written to, despite recent successful reads.

comment Using .local for internal websites
@ScottChamberlain Fine, put an 'Almost' in front of my previous comment. I still wouldn't recommend using any of those reserved names for an invented TLD. Or any invented TLD at all.
