You don't need to watch the second series to understand the movie. I haven't watched it, and it's been since the original release that I watched the first series, but I had no trouble with the movie when it came out.
I'm half-way through Endless Eight. I quite like it for what it is, but my God that must have been annoying to watch week-to-week. The way they reshuffled season one for broadcast was a stroke of genius, but this would have been a bit much even for me.

Having seen it all now, I think the Endless Eight sequence was handled very well, but between that and the five-episode making-of sequence, it meant that there wasn't much story in season two.
If they'd compressed Endless Eight to four episodes (it can't really be done in less time than that) and making-of to three, plus the Tanabata episode, that would have left six episodes for the Disappearance arc. That would have been a really strong season two, with a nice mix of new story and back story. But of course then we wouldn't have gotten the movie that we did in our timeline.
And Jonathan, you're right, you really need to watch Endless Eight (I think all of season two) to get the full impact of the movie. Everyone else has had eight months of Haruhi;
Yuki has had
nearly 600 years.

Wonderduck, I agree with you about the way KyoAni handled the Endless Eight arc. Every chance they had to be lazy and re-use animation from the previous loop they avoided.
And I only noticed now that one of your commenters signed his message as John Smith.

I have a new server, Sakura, to handle backups for the mununiverse. It has 32TB of disk, arranged as two independent 8TB RAID-1 volumes. The previous backup server (also named Sakura) had 6TB RAID-5, so 16TB RAID-1 is quite an upgrade. And the new server is slightly cheaper.
Only downside is the new Sakura has shingles. That is, it uses shingled disk drives, where the tracks actually overlap. This works because drive read heads are smaller than write heads, and can accurately read the half-sized tracks. But it means that you can't overwrite a single sector; you have to read a whole group of tracks, change the bits you want, and write the whole lot back.
Sequential performance is just fine - 160MB/sec on both reads and writes. Random access is fine, even great, up to a point. The drives have a 20GB buffer area for random writes, which works extremely well - several times faster than a normal disk drive.
But I can't recommend doing an OS update while a RAID rebuild is running. That seems to be pushing things a bit too far.
