Spent the morning planning for tomorrow's server upgrades. We have so much to do it's not funny. For lunch we all wandered up to the pub for lunch for Peter's last day in the MCSU (for now at least). Straight after lunch I drove all the way out to CIA for a promised flu vaccination, but the mob that were doing it never turned up >:( So I hung around for nearly an hour before getting back to work just before 4pm. Got some more bits and pieces done before heading out to Oatley to pick up a few bits of space lego.

Trying to have a quiet night tonight, and neeeeed to be in bed by 10:30pm, as I'm gonna have another long day tomorrow - work all day, then the EvilHouse Harley Warming most of the night. Two hours to go before I need to be in bed, yet I'm only just now eating dinner (big lunch :) )

Friday Five time

1. If you had the chance to meet someone you've never met, from the past or present, who would it be? Jesus

2. If you had to live in a different century, past or future, which would it be? If it had to be a different century, then probably the next one

3. If you had to move anywhere else on Earth, where would it be? hrm having to think about this one. There's a stack of places I'd like to visit, but I don't know about living there. Perhaps Austria or Switzerland, they're fantastically beautiful countries.

4. If you had to be a fictional character, who would it be? Superman, so I could FLY!

5. If you had to live with having someone else's face as your own for the rest of your life, whose would it be? Leelee Sobieski

This got emailed around today:

"You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy,
the best golfer is a black guy, France is accusing the US of
arrogance, and Germany doesn't want to go to war."

The Phone

Well we didn't detroy the raid last night, but we didn't fix it either. For some reason the replacement disk is coming up as 0:04 instead of 0:00 like it should be, so the raid is still critical :( I've asked Mylex for help and they've given me a few things to try, so now waiting to hear from Campbell to see what he thinks.

I spent an hour and a half rearranging the plants in my fish tank (again) today. It's starting to get quite tiring, especially since I can't really reach the bottom of the tank, and even then I can only do things with one arm, which makes getting plants to stay planted *incredibly* difficult :( The big amazon sword keeps drifting up no matter what I do. I have a rock plonked on top of half the roots to stop it floating away altogether. A lot of the other plants are giving me similar grief. With all the putting and taking, I stirred up a lot of crap, so now the water is this yukky green-yellow colour, so I'm going to let it settle down before I do anything else (which was going to include getting a couple of clown loaches - maybe next week).

Now for the Friday Five:

1. Do you like talking on the phone? Why or why not?
Depends on who it is :)

2. Who is the last person you talked to on the phone?
Campbell arranging the disk replacement last night

3. About how many telephones do you have at home?
Two landline handsets and a mobile

4. Have you encountered anyone who has really bad phone manners? What happened?
er.. dunno..

5. Would you rather pick up the phone and call someone or write them an e-mail or a letter? Why or why not?
For strangers definitely an email. For friends it really depends on the situation. Usually email, except if I need an answer straight away

1. What was the last song you heard?
"Forever May Not be Long Enough" by Live (in the credits of "The Mummy Returns")

2. What were the last two movies you saw?
"The Mummy Returns" and "Dragonheart"

3. What were the last three things you purchased?
Petrol, McDonalds for dinner last night (bleah), Subway for lunch yesterday

4. What four things do you need to do this weekend?
Reinstall my operating system, buy a small tank for my betta (and think of a name for him), look for property, support mail (and think about documentation)

5. Who are the last five people you talked to?
The dude at the petrol station, Jim, Luc, Houssein, Ross
