Today is a bad day for technology....


This morning my computer was acting funny. When I rebooted....keyboard was dead.

Fortunately, I had bought a new keyboard in anticipation of keyboard failure (though wrong one). The cleaners at work keep smashing into my keyboard when the clean my cubicle....and it is my keyboard, not the company's. It's an Ergonomic keyboard, rather than the original keyboard. So, far the damage to that keyboard hasn't impaired my ability to use it.

But, home keyboard...unexpected. Wonder if I need to order another spare keyboard now?

New server build 2


Well, after having peeked inside the box and doing a quick research on available options.

I've decided to not do any upgrades to this box I acquired for under $40 on eBay...about $66 shipped. And, just set it up as originally intended as is.

Still haven't decided if I'll busy it up running BOINC all the time. If I do, I'll probably not add it to the Climate Prediction project....even though they give you almost a year to crunch a work unit.

So, that means the only thing to get is a 4-port isn't quite the excuse to justify getting the Dell 2005FPW, I've been toying on the idea of getting.

Perhaps when I swing getting the Mac Mini....though the purchase that I plan to make to justify getting that is an EyeTV 500 (which I intend to get before July 1st, is usually October/November when new computers get acquired around here).

New Deliveries

Today, while I was having lunch in McDonalds...I spotted the normal FedEx guy. He asked me if I had been home yet, because he had dropped off a package for me.

I couldn't think of what I was expecting from FedEx, so I finished my lunch and went home to find out.

Found two packages waiting for me.

UPS had delivered the PC I had bought off of that'll probably be my weekend project to turn it into the new DNS/NTP/DHCP server for my home network. It'll mostly be an appliance in my network. Though I'll probably do a few other things to it.

I suppose I probably need to get a 4-port KVM now.

The FedEx delivery was is the replacement Maxtor drive. I plan to stick that in my current Linux server....where my DVArchive store has grown to fill the disk that is in there now. Not sure when I'll get around to putting it in though. Kind of depends on how the new Linux server goes.

The Weekend C# Project....

....finished up a lot sooner than I had expected.

I made 3 changes to the code:

  1. expose channel type in BuildChannelGuide-s
  2. override show title with channel title if channel type is "Single" or "Recurring"
  3. fix the file is already open by another process unhandled exception

As it turned out the cause of the 3rd item is in the same class as the first two changes....

New server build?

Yesterday, I decided it was time to see about getting a diagnostic code for my dead Maxtor 250GB drive so I can see about getting it replaced. I'm running out of space on my Linux DVArchive Server. I'm also running out of space on my other DVArchive server.... But, it should be possible to mount another drive in the Linux box (while the Windows/DVArchive box is SFF, so I would need some kind of external storage.....and apparently Maxtor drives can't be master/slaved inside the box I have now).

While, I was doing this I threw out my back.... >:XX

But, I got the code and sent the drive off to see if Maxtor will replace it.

Ein2: [Evolution of Eingang]


I was wondering why that Quirky Blonde was known as Eingang. Now I know....

I, on the otherhand, have always been "The Dreamer"....ever since I was labeled one, because I had an attention problem....

My parents didn't like labels like that, and not liking doctors anyways...they cut me off from them and broke me on their own.

Change 'a' to 'the' makes me special. Plus there's a Doctor Who reference in there....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
