  • catttitude is back and life is sane again. This has been very, very good.

  • The heat-sensitive Italian Molded Memory Foam Pillow ($86 @ Sam's Club) is awesome.

    • Though it did cause my old boss to go into anaphylactic shock.

  • Finished Stargate: Atlantis.

    • It was cool seeing Joel Goldsmith's cameo in the next-to-last episode of the series.

    • Looking forward to the follow-up full-length direct-to-DVD movie.

  • As I've never seen it, I'm thinking the 10-Season/210-episode Stargate SG-1 Collection will keep me quite busy during my downtime.

  • I'm on-call this week.

  • Replaced my aging Dell desktop with my dual-Xeon 3.20GHz DL380 running Ubuntu Server 9.04 w/gnome-desktop.

    • Utilizing six 10k 36GB drives in a RAID-5 configuration.

    • Utilizing three 15k 18GB drives in a RAID-0 configuration!

  • Migrated my ESXi server onto a Compaq ML370 Deskside Workstation.

  • During 9/11 our local network was adversely affected by everyone seeking information on the internet.

    • So we installed a local Google proxy.

      • Which, until Michael Jackson's Memorial yesterday seemed like a good idea.

        • You can kill the signal as it turns out.

Universe Man, Universe Man - Size of the entire universe, man...

I'm glad your life is organized once again. I can only imagine what the world would have been like had you been left to your machinations for another week.

I'm glad you finally got a machine with power under the hood. Now if you only had a task that required that power.

I have a list of movies/shows for you to check out if you ever get bored.

If 9/11 adversely affected the network and precipitated the purchase of the Google proxy, does the Michael Jackson incident prove that you could cut that cost as the proxy doesn't really work when you need it the most?

I strongly recommend "Breaking Bad". It's not Sci-Fi but it's awesome.

Good to hear the family unit is intact once again.
