Uptime Reset
Posted in Tech
Afternoon watch, 5 bells (2:33 pm)

Today I rebooted my work machine for the first time in over 313 days. I had to add a hard drive. Believe me, I tried to get the hot-swap functionality of SATA to bring the drive online, but it just wouldn't work. I was missing the device /dev/sdd, and even creating it with the right mknod arguments (at least I think they were right) didn't seem to work.

But I'm back up and running now, with some extra hard drive space.

Swamp Diamonds

Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:20 am)

Yesterday afternoon I watched Swamp Diamonds. The movie really sucked, but was mercifully shorter than normal. Because of this fact, it was prefaced by an old short film about dating:

If you watched it, skip the movie. It's about female convicts in short shorts crawling around in a swamp trying to recover stolen diamonds. I give it one empty seat, for the woman that died in the swimming pool instead of the swamp.
