One down, one to go.


I love my bank, I do. I didn't have to call about that issue, because they have a chat service available when logged in! A customer service person did some stuff behind the scenes and I filled out a form and it's all going to be taken care of without me having to speak to another person. (hopefully)

If I want my card blocked, I'm going to have to actually call, though. I think I'll do so at some point, just as a precaution, and I'll be monitoring my account more closely to see if there's any more shady business going on.

Now, about the issue of the external drive. I can either open the case (which would void the warranty if it wasn't already expired) and plug it in as an internal drive, or I can buy a new power supply that I'm not completely certain is the right kind, but it looks like it is and there's no other choice.

Option A, pros: doesn't cost anything, no wait.
  cons: I might break something. I'm getting the new drive I just ordered in the mail tomorrow and I can't use them both because Yoki can't handle more than two SATA drives. So while I could probably access the contents, I wouldn't be able to make regular use of the drive because that slot is going to be filled by another drive 3x the size of this one.

Option B, pros: Well, if that solves it, problem solved and everything is peachy!
  cons: if it doesn't solve it, waste of money. Costs money, even if not a whole lot. Have to wait for it to ship.
