Froggie


It was such a gloomy day today. After church I closed the blinds and watched Lord of the Rings and ate popcorn. Popcorn seems like such a lazy rainy Sunday afternoon kind of thing to do.

On the right is another pic of James and George's froggiest frog.

Got some more lego today too, lots of fun.

Aside from that, nothing to report :)

Dell Tower

Today *sucked*. A job that was meant to take two-three hours took *nine* :( I would seriously like to strangle the designers of Dell's old rack-mounting kits. We spent over an hour trying to mount one of the servers into a rack - the attachment to the rack itself was totally bizarre and non-intuative, and the locking mechanism prevented us from just sliding the server in. It proved to be a long, sweaty, frustrating battle. (This is stark contrast to their new rack-mount kits which clip in in three seconds and the servers slot straight into them).

On a somewhat lighter note, the new switchie box (kvm) worked well with the old one, and we had enough power sockets on the upses to cope with all the new machines. Unfortunately I didn't get time to configure powerchute on the machines that needed it or do some of the windows updates that needed doing. But at least the new rack looks very swishy, I'll post a photo when I have time to take one.

Marc came over for dinner tonight. Was lovely to see him again after so long (ok well maybe not that long - only a year and a bit). He's been overseas for work/recreation/family/wedding etc and brought over all his photos. He also demonstrated some the Thai massage techniques he learnt while in Thailand :)

I just put on "The Green Mile" but I don't think it's going to get finished tonight. It's supposed to be good, but I still haven't cooked dinner yet, and George is coming over later so bring photos of her new nephew so we can upload the pics to the web. Oh well, at least it's a start, I've had it on tape since last year (there's even an ad for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and the final episode of 24 on there ! )
