Into Each Season Of Doctor Who Some Suck Must Fall

Or so it would seem.  And this week's episode is all that.  14 minutes in and it's so bad that I've stopped watching five times.

Update: Okay, it picked up a bit after that.  But a very clumsily-written episode, which is particularly bad because it hit a couple of very important points for the season story arc.

M-Series Update

Order placed - 61.5% discount, yay!

Between this and the great deal I got on Akane Mk III, we should be good for a couple of years.

Where'd The Internet Go?

I can only reach small randomly distributed parts of it.  Fortunately including mu.nu/mee.nu.

Can't get to isitdownorjustme.com, which is alanic.

Hmm.  Seems to be my ISP.  My backup connection works.

Midori & Momoko

New servers this week: Midori and Momoko.

These will replace Mikan; the reason is that SoftLayer are finally running their elusive "triple double" special at a time when I can take advantage of it.

Generally, they run either a double-memory-and-disk special or a double-bandwidth special.  I got Mikan on a double-bandwidth special.  That means it has 4TB of bandwidth (which is pooled with Akane/Aoi), but only 2GB of memory and a single 250GB disk (I later added another 1TB drive).

With the "triple double" special I get double memory, disk, and bandwidth for no extra charge, so the plan is to get two low-end boxes like that (Xeon 3050 dual-core servers).  That will give us 10TB of primary bandwidth (as well as the 100TB of media cache thingy bandwidth we have from Kurumi) which should keep us happy for a while.

What I Don't Understand...

Is how anyone could run a video through a comb filter backwards and not notice.

Princess Chuchu

Just finished watching Princess Tutu.  Quite remarkable.  Very highly recommended - for the story, for the music, for the characters, and for Nanae Katou's remarkable performance as Ahiru.  Of course it doesn't hurt that I'm a Tchaikovsky fan from way back.

Four ugly ducklings out of four.

Quack!
