darkvoyager.com will be offline today between 1230-1330 for patching. Thank you.

My Solaris 9 box now has the DST patch on it. Yes, I could have simply installed the individual patch, but decided to take this opportunity to bring it down into single-user mode and run the 9_Recommended patchset against it.

Oddly enough, I found that I didn't have the showrev command installed. Because I built a tight little box using the "Core" install (which misses a lot of little items), I keep an online repository of Sun packages for just this purpose. Its one of the smartest things I've ever done.

Thank you. You've saved me the trouble of actually watching the episode for myself. I appreciate your thoughtfulness. å

Hey, WTF! The LJ Cut did not work... I tested it in a normal post. Do LJ cuts not work in the comments to main posts????

Fool, they are going to bring her back. she's not dead but captured by the Cylons.

I disagree with...sorry! She is a Cylon - one of the last five! I think her mother had something to do with the Cylon race and this is why she told Starbuck her whole life that she was special. Then there's the whole destiny thing.

Well I guess I just pissed away the cost of my season one and two collection. I was catching up. Guess I don't need to buy season 3.

Alas, he's a real ass sometimes.

I would not go that far. It was just a simple boner.

What I don't understand it why patching your box precluded you from being logged in to AIM.

I have AIM on my UX280P by my bed.
I have Adium on teh max0r.
I'm running GAIM on my X1 laptop by the sofa.
I run Kopete on my kubuntu box.
I do not run an instant messenger client on my Sun server.

I was signed out of them all.

What I don't understand is why me being logged out of AIM precluded you from calling my cell phone.

I don't know why the other boxen would have been shut down. I mean, patching the sun box is like ./install_cluster and wait for an hour

anyway, it was late and I didn't want to wake you midnight
ehowton at 2007-03-05 21:48 (UTC) (Link)
I didn't shut down anything. I was simply logged out of AIM on all the boxes. The DST patch is a completely separate matter (though I did bring the box to single-user mode prior to installing the cluster). One doesn't have anything to do with the other.

Thank you for your consideration concerning the midnight call.
