I can't be the only sysadmin who's afraid to run updates on April first.  Right?

Visual Studio 2012 is punishing me for trying to install it on Windows 7. Going on reboot #12. At least they're clean, prompted reboots. I guess 6 cores and 8gb of ram just isn't enough to make it happy.

I know I'm late to the party for finding out ubuntu's next release name, but I can't believe they passed up the opportunity to name 13.04 Rocky Raccoon  or Randy Rabbit.  Raring Ringtail just isn't as cool.

I just built xv for ubuntu 12.04. 

You wish you were as cool as me.  I just know it.

Worth a read if your hard drive has ever failed.

So the Skylanders "portal" was prototyped using arduinos, hacked wiimotes, and random pieces from a hardware store. Sounds like DIY awesomeness.

Black connectors on a black logic board with black cables and black ends, packed into an aluminum shell in a way that would make a watchmaker proud.  Thanks Apple.  Your sense of aesthetics really makes it easy to work on these systems.

Grr.

Tired girl, post first fishing trip. She told me it was fun. The look of disappointment is because they had the wrong chocolate milk.
