Good Friday

Had a good Good Friday.

Actually managed to achieve quite a lot.

Got the last four hours of Looney Tunes recorded to dvd. Did two loads of washing including my sheets and towels. Water changed the krib tank and watered my plants. Read a fifth or so of the Half Blood Prince. Upgraded our file server (switched to new hardware). Watched (or half watched rather) the Passion of the Christ.

The file server upgrade still isn't finished, still have a todo list left of things I need to fix up. And the whole process took an awfully long time. Worried that the new server feels slower than the old one. Just getting properties on a directory and having it count up bytes takes longer on the new server :( Will watch it over the weekend and see how we go.

Half watching the Passion of the Christ was probably a good thing. Actually for the last half of it I didn't even have the volume up which further detaches you from it. I imagine it'd have felt a lot more brutal if your whole attention was dedicated to it. And while I'm here, can anyone explain to me why non-Christians celebrate Easter at all..? Christmas I can understand in a way, but not Easter.

It was originally the celebration of the returning of the sun. A renewal. Hence the eggs and bunnies. Procreation. ETC. Don't forget in the northern hemisphere, it is spring.

Sounds like a pagan festival trying to take over a Christian one (whereas Christmas was a Christian festival trying to take over a pagan one...)
