pipe dream

So my server has been randomly rebooting, and I suspect corrupted data to be the cause of it. I can reliably force the reboot if I do certain tasks, all of which point to one partition on the main drive. I’ve been backing things up to do a fresh install of the OS. There are mistakes on this box several years old from when I was first learning Unix, and it’s about time I started fresh.

I had finished backing up the last of the videos and stuff in my /pub directory, and was ready to wipe the originals. then all I’d have to do is transfer the massive archive file to my other machine when I got home and I’d be done. I decided to go ahead and clean up the directory first. I forgot 2 terms in the command I used to clean the directory, and ended up deleting half the server. any other day I would have been super-pissed, but I already got most of the important info off the machine. the video files, although numerous, can be replaced.

This is me making a “I saw 300” LJ post.

I saw 300!

I liked it a lot. I went into it admittedly knowing that it was going to be historically inaccurate, but then people enjoy Spiderman movies regardless of the violations to basic laws of physics. I guess my lack of history knowledge of that time period helped in much the same way as most peoples’ lack of physics knowledge.

Anyways… I went into the theater to see a fictional story and was pleased. The movie delivered.

I remember back in the day when I used to take the bus to middle/high school. my driveway was about 1/4 mile long.. longer than most but not terrible. 2 houses away in each direction were kids my age who also took the bus. I remember us all being asked to consolodate at one driveway to speed things up, and that was reasonable in my opinion. its not as if we were terribly far away from eachother. just 2 houses away in each direction… took like a minute for both of them to walk to my driveway.

So I got stuck behind a school bus on the way in. he stopped at 4 driveways in a row. each driveway was no more than 50 feet from the other. the bus stopped at each one… stopped, got moving, stopped at the next, etc. It’s completely beyond me why they couldn’t just all stand at one spot. they were almost withing speaking distance ffs. oh that’s right, I know why… each of them was sitting in an idling car with their parents since they can’t be expected to brave the elements for a solid 5 minutes. zzz.
