"Sometimes hard drives die..."

It's not a very good saying, but it sure does seem appropriate right now.

When you see "Delayed write failed", you'd best pay attention.

It's hard to get worked up about a dead laptop hard drive when you're main customer is a storage company ergo if hard drives died less often, I'd have a lot less work. Also, how glad am I that I ghosted my initial install?

Why have I not deleted Jack fuckin' Johnson from my iRiver yet?

Compiling a custom kernel is a massive pain in the ass. Especially on a headless box.

Shan't be making it to this round of HuSi drinks, but then, Alice plans to drink less, so I really don't see it being as much fun.

I need more music. I also need an office where I can play said music at loud volume instead of over headphones. Does wonders for concentration. Particularly Marilyn Manson - The Reflective God.

Why does it feel like Friday?

I was sharing an office with last summer did, and play insanely loud Russian thrash metal over crappy headphones a mere 1 m from the next person along. It really does wonders for their concentration as well.

Come to think of it, I need some good headphones.

I have a feeling Alice was planning to drink less last time. As was I.

ER-6i go right into your ear. You can hear nothing but the muzak. But no-one else can hear it.
