At work, on a Saturday morning, somewhat cranky
Backing up 230Gb of crappy user data onto AIT tapes before a rebuild of the primary netatalk server. And oh lucky me I crashed out my 500+Mb mail archive yesterday so bad I seem to have lost all my archived email. I'll have to restore from a backup in December, which of course is in a different city (not such a problem one would think what with DSL and so-on, but it's on a CD-R in a drawer..) Grrrr.
It's overcast and rainy here in Sydney. A whole weekend with my name on it, and here I am inside this airless office for the next 38 hours..
oh g'wan, si, why not have a good moan
hours and hours later...
Our hero is still frigging around with Linux. The server was not happy with the repairs, and I'm now on my fifth install. I'm just trying to figure out why I'm getting a kernel panic on this Dell when I've got four other identical boxes running the same distro very very happily. I'm not in tears, but I feel a little tightness around my throat and I feel like a hug. I've been going since 5am today and I really do not want to be here for a 20 hour day....
