Yay!

Got a moment of piece and watched episode twelve/12 of Haruhi Suzumiya on the new TV, which I'm very happy with. It has the usual contrast issues of LCDs, but not overly so, and the colour and clarity are wonderful.

Need to get my HTPC set up next. I'm typing this on my notebook's keyboard, but using the TV as the screen. Again. it's on VGA so it's not sub-pixel perfect like DVI, but it's more than good enough.

But first: Minx. I'm switching the munu comments system to Minx tomorrow, so there's a bit of tweaking and testing I need to do.

Oh, and a very good episode it was too.

Aargh! Stuck pixel! Stuck pixel! Didn't see it before. Stuck pixel! sad

Red. It's always red.

Splatsville

Still having major notebook problems. I've got a 1GB SD card installed at the moment, and I'm saving all my work there rather than the hard disk. It seems to run fine most of the time, but it's a pain in the butt when it needs to boot.

I'll try swapping drives again this weekend.

That'd Be Right

Bought a new media centre PC.

It doesn't work.

Oh, and my notebook died about thirty times last night. It may or may not be the hard disk. It was working this morning, but when I got to the office and tried to bring it back from standby it cold booted.

I do have a backup.

Speaking Of Which

Working 15 hour days, 7 days a week, gets to you after a while.

I haven't even watched the latest episode of Haruhi Suzumiya yet.

I have a brand new HDTV, and I haven't watched anything on it.

<Dies.>

Yes

DDoSed again.

"Interesting" isn't the term I'd use, though. "Bloody irritating", perhaps.

Wait Training

They say that which does not kill us, makes us stronger and it must be true, because this morning I tucked a 27" TV under my arm and carried it home.

Okay, so it's an LCD and only weighs 12kg. Pfft.

The Karma Kittens Come Home To Roost

My dishwasher just blew up.

I see a week of take-away in my future.

Karma: Piss Poor

Did I torment kitties in a past life or something?

Anyway, my new HDTV has not arrived. Yes, they called me yesterday to tell me I could come and pick it up. No, it's not actually there, as such.

Eh.

Okay, off to set up Apache 2.2 and stuffs.

Update: The other advantage of going for the borrowed word is that I could understand it as well. Context helps, of course.

Blue Tuesday Friday

My baby done left me.
My cat left me too.
Can't get this code to compile
No matter what the hell I do.
I got the Blue Screen of Death Blues.

My server got DDoSed.
My hard disk got fried.
Got everything fixed, then
Movable Type lay down and died.
I got the Blue Screen of Death Blues.
Yeah, I got the Blue Screen of Death Blues.
Should have stayed home in bed -
Now I got the Blue Screen of Death Blues.

Taking Stuff For Granted

Ten hours ago I was intently focused on trimming my search routine down to single-digit milliseconds.

Right now I'm just happy to have a working server.

The DDoS attack came back.

Fortunately, this time I had working NFS and no drive failures. Much faster and less painful that way.
