External Drive’s Name



I received my external usb/firewire (400/800) drive, it’s quiet nice not very thin but seems robust enough with some rubber protection around it and this is a good point as it’s my daily work external drive !

My colleague Toi received also the same disk and I saw the same icon when I plugged it in.

/dev/sdb1 on /media/disk type ext3 (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

and it’s mounted nicely :

/dev/sdb1 on /media/pr0n type ext3 (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

It’s an easy tip but I didn’t know it before 😉
