The Reboot of quark

quark has been up for 80 days. Not too bad considering all he's been through, the move and all, and the rebuild. I taught myself minimal Solaris loading on quark. Which is why I brought him down...it's patching time! This could take awhile, I'm not sure. He's probably only three rev's back, and he's got probably twice the throughput of those Ass Blade's at work. I don't know where quark will go, or what I'm going to do with him, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.

I started dismantling unused servers at the ADC today. Of course the trash was in the way, so I bundled up all that and took it out. Then I got hungry and had to hunt some food. After that my headache was worse, so I made a pot of coffee. Sat down to drink the cup and starting adding album art to iTunes. Needless to say, I haven't actually dismantled anything yet.

David came over last night and we played a few rounds of Holomatch before organizing the pictures of his last 3 years at the Star Trek convention in Vegas. while I cleaned out my desk. I used to like the one-on-one hunt, but we've been playing massive maps against as many bots as I can fit in. It's been a lot of fun.

...

All patches run and blastwave packages updated. quark is back online! I also managed to stack some unused boxes for relocation.

Ok, so I admit it's sometimes hard for me to delete entire soundtracks that are in my iTunes database. But there I was, innocently listening to music and updating album art, information, etc, when I run across "All About the Benjamins" <-- the entire album! So I think, "WTF?" Now, I must admit that I had already assumed what type of music was going to be there, and as I previewed each song, I had to admit it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but I had to ask myself, "Will I EVER sit and listen to this crap?" So I deleted it. I'd rather listen to Tony's entire collection of Blood Hound Gang than spare the disk sectors on...oh who am I kidding. I'd keep 50 copies of "All About the Benjamins" on spinning disc before I listened to any BHG.
