Migration to the T1 on various servers in the ADC is going slowly. This is mostly due to the fact we have no air conditioning, and I'm going to have to do them one at a time, then power them off. Tony considers everything other than his server low-priority. That isn't helping much either. I have moved my home computer out of the house, as well as the mud server, and will be cancelling ADSL tomorrow. The only thing in my house at this point is a cot, the TV, and the DVD player. So I watch ROTS over and over.

The StorageTek guy is here for 2 days to chit-chat about ASM, DR, and knowledge transfer of this unwieldy shared-filesystem we're using here. What a pain in the ass. All this while I migrate one POS SB100 for another POS SB100 which is being used as a server attached to a SCSI-to-IDE Promise array containg 1TB of slow-ass 4200 rpm ATA drives. Nice.

Driving to Kansas and back this weekend to see the kids and deposit the wife until we're ready to start building our new house. At least I'll get a lot of hours in at the ADC. And playing Dungeon Siege with David until DSII is released.

I'm looking into acquiring a smallish nVidia graphics card to add another head to my home computer. Yes, Tony, I know this is not the best solution, but it is probably the most cost-effective.

In other news, I have a cold sore, and asked the wife for something to clear it up. She gave me some Oragel which leaked onto my tongue during the application process while I was driving to work this morning. My tongue went numb like Jar-Jar when he ran his massive lips into Anikin's podracer. It's not medicine, its gelatinous novocaine!

Next to getting air conditioning so the boxes don't melt down, everything is low priority.

After that, having one, consolidated, low heat signature, already configured for all of the services we need, already running our existing customers box would by necessity carry a higher priority than turning on a shitload of heat generators that I thought we agreed we were going to not use in the first place.

I dare say that out of every computer in there, the Shuttle swing-server is by far, the coolest of the b0xen.

What gives you that impression, Mr. Poirot? Is it the fact its got a heatsink and pipes as big as your gigantic cow tounge, or the fact that the fan never has to run because said heatsink is so efficient?

What a smartass.
