A Peaceful Calm

First, an admission... it's 1:13 in the morning (check the timestamp) and I should be in bed. Especially when you consider that I skipped school today to try and recover from a rather debilitating cold.

Okay, that out of the way, I want to share with you all the most wonderful thing that happened to me today. My laptop survived a complete fscking (yes, work-safe... like you have to ask). It was truly glorious. I had been having problems for the past several weeks, and after a recent fscking that really screwed everything up I was hesitant to go jumping into the lion's mouth a second time.

Well, apparently Debian made the decision for me, because the new version of fsck makes you run fsck if the preliminary check fails... no more suggesting you run fsck. So I did, and everything is better. Passed with flying colors.

I love linux.

Now that, Dr. Kellogg, was a blog post. Personal details that you think no one really cares about, but that the rest of us can read and think to ourselves, "Oh god I'm glad I'm not that geeky" (which may or may not actually be true).

If you want to talk about all this "content," like your GPL discussion, you can take it elsewhere. This is a blog. It's for angst and mundane life details!

Oooh... I was forced to reboot this morning (network issues at school) and it was glorious, simply glorious, as the harddrive cleanly mounted. Such simple pleasures.
