Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My fileserver box uses a Maxtor Diamondmax ATA hard disk. The last time I tried to power it on, the BIOS didn't detect it, and it seems to be generating some sort of alarm. It's like a siren kind of sound, that alternates with a really loud buzzing noise.
I'm absolutely certain that it's not the PC speaker (I disconnected it, plus when I pull the molex connector for the disk it stops). What the hell is it? I can't seem to fnd any documentation that mentions this, and it's a really difficult thing to google for (I may not be using the correct terminology, because it's the first time I've ever come across something like this).
