SATA GOODNESS

The 1TB 7200rpm 32MB-cache SATA drive.


$107 at Best Buy. Now if I could only get it out of compatibility mode. But because I installed it without AHCI enabled...In short, because I didn't F6 the drivers, there's no controller to apply drivers to.

So rather than wallow in self-pity (which I would do, trust me, if it would get me out of this cycle of Microsoft asininity) I'm going to, probably in this order, install:
  1. Windows 7 RC1

  2. Windows Server 2008

  3. Windows Server 2003

And in other most awesome news, I managed to procure an HP ProLiant DL380 G3 with dual-Xeon 3.20GHz procs and 4.5GB RAM. I unwrapped 2x72GB 10k Sun drives I've been saving for just such an adventure, swapped sleds, and created a 137GB (formatted) RAID-0 stripe to install ESXi on at work. Its ashame that VMware provides some of their tools for both linux and windows, some for linux only, and some for windows only? WTF ^^ mate?

Of course all this fun has been betwixt attempting to ignite an HP/UX frame in nPar mode on an external array. Bah!

I think I'll give away all my Sun servers. Anyone interested?

Entirely understandable; I take no offense whatsoever. In fact, I think being overly cautious will allow you to fully experience how laid-back we all are here. I take a sort of laissie-faire attitude with this journal, just letting the course of actions make their run. On the shoulders of a mighty river, I am but a twig.

In this game of life, interleaved as it is, there are people on my FL who have been scorned, and those who have done the scorning. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. My digital melting pot is just that.

Comment when you like, read/don't read it doesn't matter. There are no expectations of you here whatsoever. Just enjoy when you can.

Thanks for commenting.

You're welcome, I really like your journal so I'll probably add you back sometime. Maybe in a few weeks when I've cooled down about it, I'm letting them make a fool out of me I know but even if it is online when I'm treated so unfairly like that it makes me angry.

It hasn't been mentioned, actually, and I think we owe them the same courtesy - I'll screen the more personal comments ;)

See, you doing that makes me think I'm still being talked about and this post possibly linked to. If not, feel free to screen, but if that is the case then I'd rather not be censored. Let Melancthe and the people on her list read what I think of her, after all, if there's no truth to my opinion that will be readily apparent.

I understand that's sometimes an issue. I'm being completely honest with you as I have no reason not to be, and you don't yet know me well enough to know that even if I had reason to lie to you, I wouldn't, yet you don't believe me. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can say to pacify that :(

Its not your comments, per se that I'm screening, rather the discussion of comments which took place behind an f-locked post. Were you to comment on an open post, for example, by all means, comment away ;)

I have very few f-locked posts (of which you're privy to) and I would be reluctant for those post to be discussed openly elsewhere. I suppose to some its less of a distinction than to others.

Regardless, you'll make up your own mind where these things are concerned :/

As long as noone made a locked post to talk shit about me reminiscent of a bitchy clique of high school girls that's fine. If so I need to have a voice as well.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt though. /End thread.

So... somebody didn't like you, and escalated communicating that fact in a way that made you not like them, and escalate communicating that fact in a way that made someone else not like you, and escalate communicating that fact in a way that made you not like them, and escalate communicating that fact here in a way that just might make other people not like you...

Yep. LJDrama.

E-dude...this is another one of those adorable and geeky entries that make me wonder what you are talking about. I'm just not that tech-savvy.

I've had a rash of those lately. I was even asked once to put "I was naked while typing this" at the end to give people something, anything really, to respond to.

I have a better idea. You should put that line at the end of EVERY entry it applies to! ;)

So much for discretion being the greater part of valor. I purposely omitted the originator of that idea to protect her maidenly honor.
