SMP = Supah Megah Powah!!

Tonight, my bestest friend EVER, Jess, upgraded Woody (the little machine that you all have come to know and love as this server) with a new kernel.

Now… for the first time ever (and only a friggin’ year after she was put into production), both processors are running.

Yup… dual AMD MP 2800+ bizzaches…. hummin’ away in unison. All hot and sweaty and glistening and…. um… if you need me, I’ll be in the bathroom.

Damn… now I gotta… um… process somethin’ and stuffs.

Oh… and I fixed my Tivo (only took 6 hours yesterday and another 5 today).

Yup…. accomplishment feels spiffy.

Oh… and on one final note: I ordered Firefly – The complete Series from Amazon a couple weeks ago. When it came, I discovered, much to my dismay, that it was bundled as an “OMG SUPER DUPER LIMITED EDITION”, with two coppies of DVD #2 and no coppies of DVD #4. Amazon (God bless ’em), is sending a new box set out and it should be here on Wednesday.

Ugh… I are stoopid

Apparently, I shouldn’t be allowed to touch anything technical.

Over the weekend, I managed to muck my my server and my Tivo (which is now stuck in this damn loop durring the guided setup). Oh yeah… my wife is not happy.

Fortunately, I found other people on the Tivo forums who have had the same issue with their generation 1 Tivo’s who also found a fix for it. I’ll be trying that when I get home (and will hopefully fix the damn thing AND get the undying love of my wife back).

It’s live!!

As anyone who has ever known anything about me will attest… I collect domain names.

I like to buy them, start grand projects of monumentally humorous design… then walk way when something shiny or with breasts presents itself to me.

But this time is different.

I purchased a new domain earlier in the week and set about getting the DNS and MX records done. It’s gone live… and I’m actually using it!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you:
Damaged People dot com

Sure… it’s my forum, but damn… that’s a snappy name! (and perfectly apt for a forum).

A big shout to Jacob

October 21, 2005 By: bio Category: General

Jacob, one of the two people I targeted yesterday for hotlinking my images, posted a message on the blog.

dude, sorry about that, but please! tell me how to take that thing off, im sorry i wont ever do it again, i didn’t know. please e mail me.

I replied to his email and told him how to remove it to the best of my knowledge (it’s livejournal… I’m not exactly sure how you go about adding in a background image to it).

I removed the image he had hotlinked to (well… the one I replaced for the one he hotlinked to ). I’ll be watching my 404 errors to make sure he actually removes it from his site.

Good job Jacob! 🙂

Other news… oh hell… there is no other news. My life is a cold and shallow place.
