There goes the neighbourhood

The tragic thing is, I cared more about the election in someone else's country than in my own. Not a lot mind you. But it does seem like a bit of a blow for world peace.

Had a thoroughly sucky afternoon at work. Got myself into trouble with the boss because I assumed somebody knew something they didn't and they found out badly and he had to clean up the mess. I'm going to have to share an office with someone who I really don't want to. This is a guy that spends his entire day browsing hifi equipment, music, australian idol and other such stuff on the internet all day. I honestly cannot tell you what he's *supposed* to do with his today. Technically he's the backup administrator. But he's not even very good at that. And now he's going to be even further from supervision, and the fact that he doesn't work all day is just going to stress me out. sigh.

The only thing I achieved today was getting closer to getting file replication working. But really need to test it with gigabytes of files rather than just half a dozen empty directories.

Watching Air Crash Investigation. I've actually seen this episode before, although no idea where. Probably at Vic's place on Foxtel or something.

After two nights of broken sleep thanks to cia's servers, I'm going to turn the pagers off and sleep through. Maybe then tomorrow won't be as sucky as today was.

Not too surprising to hear that Dubbya is the least popular US President, outside the US, in the last 70 years.

You may have seen the ABC doco "George W Bush and the rise of the religious right"? If you did, it was no surprise that Dubbya got his 300K votes and won Ohio. Things get really scary when some Christian Evangelists prosecute their beliefs in a way which is indistinguishable from the radical Islamics - those we are told threaten lives we lead.

Thank heavens for Australia.
