My Awesome Weekend v. Non-legendary blog post

2009/05/18

Yeah, its late and I’m going to sleep so instead of typing out a story I put a few pictures up on picasa and you can guess the story.  My ambition is to edit this into something all linky and picture-y, but my ambition was also to become an astronaut.

Enjoy


Wait, what did they say?

30% of spies speak a second language apparently.  So either 70% of our spies are in england and australia, or 30% of them are somewhat conspicuous.

Poor Hard Drive

2009/04/19

After talking to Mr. Dan about random issues I’ve ran into with Windows Home Server and failed file copies he mentioned that I should check the SMART data on the hard drives I have. He apparently had experience with a bad hard drive taking the performance of WHS to its knees.

After checking I found a result I did not hope to see:
NOOO Mr. HDD

The 49% is the overall health as well as the disk read error rate. So lets hope that guy hangs in awhile longer.

Sausage Dogs

2009/03/12

After reading a short news article today I believe sausage dog is officially my new preferred nomenclature to wiener dog.  And for all parents that were considering getting their little girl a pony but your only hiccup was that horses are often trained to jump fences FEAR NOT!!!!!  For I have your solution here.

After all, the fence was definitely the show stopper on purchasing a horse for your darling daughter.  It had nothing to do with the feeding, grooming, or massive poops you’d have to deal with.


Good uses of bored time.
