This wouldn't have happened with Gainsborough or one of those proper painters.

The air conditioning at the office has failed. Bleah. Bleah.

The Karma Chickens Come Home to Roost

So, my other RAID-5 array has dropped a disk, and refuses to raidhotadd it back into place?

And my Windows system is oscillating between 30MB per second and 3, for no apparent reason?

Hmm. Still waiting for the other shoe chicken to drop.

I'm kind of impressed with one thing: CuteFTP is getting 35MB per second between the Linux box and the Windows box. Some of the time, anyway. Yay for Gigabit Ethernet, boo for pretty much everything else.

Update: Oh there we go. The drive went clunk and died again.

Tap Tap

Oh look, a blog! I used to have one just like it when I was little. Neat. I wonder what this thing does -

BZZZZAP!

Oh, yeah.

Anyway, since I have nothing to write about at the moment, here are some helpful safety tips for all the budding helicopter pilots in the audience, from our friends at NASA:

Thank you for your interest in flying safely.


To most people, the sky is the limit.
To those who love aviation, the sky is home.

Basic Flying Rules:
1. Try to stay in the middle of the air.
2. Do not go near the edges of it.
3. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there.

I'd also like to mention in passing that XHTML 1.0 Provisional sucks and I no longer give a damn whether my blog or anything else is compliant in any way. Ppppppttt to XHTML 1.0 Provisional!

Oh, and I have some Easter eggs here. They were in the stores on the second of January. Possibly even earlier, but I was avoiding that whole shopping thingy the previous couple of weeks.

Mmm, chocolate...

Looking Back

I know you're supposed to look back at the year gone by and reflect that it hardly seems like any time at all, but hell's bells 2004 took a long time. At least 18 months I say, and probably 20.

We got our money's worth out of that year, you bet.
