The City of Santa Cruz chooses whiney, special-interest groups over common sense, decency, and science....AGAIN!
Holy crap, giant squid! tours
In response, one of my friends proved he can't type _or_ spell:
(13:30:27) A: i dont think i've ever driven 25
(13:30:44) A: parapheases samma hagar
(13:30:53) A: "iiiii cant drive, 25!"
(13:31:08) Me: man, your typing _really_ sucks 8)
(13:31:56) A: i only mispelled paraphrases
(13:32:04) A: a common are->e
(13:32:38) Me: It only took you 8 words to screw up and most of them were <=3 letters
(13:32:38) A: uhm "are" should be the letter by the same sound
(13:32:42) Me: also: misspelled 8)
(13:32:58) A: hehe that i knew
I just had a really yummy (free) lunch of burrito & chips. The burrito's cilantro was apparently all at the end, so I ate 7/8 before having to put it aside.
Lunch had an talk about an embedded system company working on a RISC processor with software definable macro instructions. It just goes to show that people who give talks are always behind on technology. Intel's been doing that since the Pentium III at least.
Totally unrelated to your post - who is the chick in(on?) your icon?
River Tam from Firefly (and Serenity, the movie being released tomorrow in the US, at least).
Hmmm... not heard of them.
dude, I have an oddity. I've installed gentoo (again) on my old box on the drive linux calls hdd. Ton boot from it, I had to tell bios that it was drive F and oddly, grub calls it hd0 (even though I also have a hda). Whats that about?
Serenity is coming out in a week in the UK. It's so very worth seeing, but watch the series first. It'll be the best DVD expense you'll ever make.
That's pretty odd. Let linux boot and do a dmesg. Search for ide0 in the output and you'll see it talking about hda, hdb, hdc, and hdd. It'll also mention which IDE bus those are on.
If I know that much, I can probably figure out what's going on.
These drives don't have their jumpers set to cable select, do they?
