amused, silly, ha ha only serious

Downtime

Navi is down tonight. She froze up today and then had trouble rebooting; a quick SMART check showed that her main hard drive was expected to fail in "less than 24 hours", which is never good. I made a hasty backup of that drive and then turned her off. I'll replace the drive tomorrow morning; I have enough money to cover it myself this time.

Anyway, tonight was my belated birthday dinner, which we had at Benihana. My haul:

  • An iPod speaker set/alarm clock from my parents, which I will be using tomorrow morning.
  • Some clothes and things,
  • A $15 iTunes Music Store gift card (which I can use with SharpMusique),
  • A hollowed out book with $200 (!) in $2 bills inside,
  • And a bag of cookies (half sprinkles, half chocolate chips) from my grandparents. This is extravagent even for them.

I should go to bed so I can get up and be at Microcenter when they open. Goodnight.
