#7666: This has been a day.

Overslept, and the work I tried to accomplish this afternoon failed in its entirety.

Replacing a PC, but the replacement PC decided to eat its hard drive, or something, so that it took me 20 minutes just to log into it. Latency was running over a second and the drive was 100% saturated with 500 kbps (that's kilobits per second) throughput.

This same computer sat on my desk for three weeks, plugged in, logged in, ready to go--and the day I try to deploy it, it fries.

In some ways that's actually lucky, though: I vastly prefer to have it cough up a bucket of dicks before a user is relying on it, rather than after I take his "working but slow" PC back to the office with me.

Right now, gonna go pick up some dinner, and then I'm going to play WoW. "Burning Crusade Classic" went live yesterday.
