Alright, this is going to sound odd, but bear with me. I'm engaged in an ongoing e-mail game for Nomic Sidekick Nomic, and one of the proposals a friend of mine is working on involves a random number. My question is, does anyone know or can point me in the direction of code to throw on a webpage that will randomly generate a number and send it to a specific e-mail address?
It sounds like a hardware problem. I have a drive that showed the exact same symptoms. I cracked the case and have confirmed that there are some solder joints that are shot where the USB connector meets the PCB.
