As the day draws to a close, I find myself sitting here doing an all-nighter change on a couple of Sun e4500 systems in parallel.

Great stuff. These things take forever to boot, and I do mean forever. Sure, not as long as the Enterprise 10000 but long nonetheless.

So I get to sit here through the wee small hours with nothing but das blinkenlights to keep me company. Well, I guess I have E2 while I wait.

Does I will REMOVE the fucking toilet seat if you don't shut up really need to be Chinged over and over and over again? Why isn't there a limit on how many C!'s nodes can have? I liked it a whole lot better when you could just Cool a node once. A C! meant something back then.

But who am I to question why?.

Ah, at last... "POST complete."

On it goes. It's going to be a long night.
