Change in Plans

Afternoon watch, 5 bells (2:47 pm)

Well, I talked to GW, my boss, and he said it was better to spend extra money and redo this server right than to just fix it for today, so I had to buy some new hardware. Unfortunately, that meant I had to drive to Spokane (CompUSA to be specific) and pick up the parts. So I just got back a little while ago, and am now re-reformatting the system so I can install all the software. Not fun.

Cheapass Games
Forenoon watch, 5 bells (10:50 am)

I just ran across this site, while formatting the new server hard drive. It was cool enough to make it to my Things that are cool category, so go take a peek at it. They even have free games.

Bad Mondays

Forenoon watch, 4 bells (10:28 am)

Well this morning we had a server die that hosted all our financial information. I am very unhappy. What a rotten thing to have happen. The hard drive just went tango uniform—dead. Won't boot, won't even be auto-detected in BIOS. Of course, it's not a RAID system, either. Sometimes we save too much money around here. This is going to take me most of the day to fix... I want to cry now.

The only redeeming factor this day holds for me now is my date with L tonight. At least something good will happen on this Monday.
