Some nimrod left a huge amount of data in their recycle bin. Data eating up space I needed for defragging, etc. Trouble is, in Win2k, the folders under the Recycle Bin are named after the SIDs (so, I didn't know who the offending party was) and Win2k didn't let me see (or empty) the folders. I couldn't even reduce that SIDs Recycle Bin size to zero to get rid of the files. I fixed the problem by going to command line, doing a 'dir /A:h /X' to get the short filename, going to that folder and manually erasing the files. If I had a util handy to convert the SIDs to usernames, you can bet I would have changed their desktop background to something like 'Remember to Empty your Recycle Bin, Asshat!'.

Sorry, I had to...

Let's Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas

Open up your heart and let the Patrick Swayze Christmas in.
We'll gather at the Roadhouse with our next of kin.
And Santa can be our regular Saturday night thing.
We'll decorate a barstool and gather round and sing.

Oh, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas this year!
Or we'll tear your throat out and kick you in the ear!

It's my way or the highway, this Christmas at my ba-ha-haar
I'll have to smash your kneecaps if you bastards touch my car!
I got the word that Santa has been stealing from the till.
I think that that right jolly old elf had better make out his will ohh!

Oh, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas, one and all.
And this can be the haziest...this can be the laziest...
This can be the Swayziest Christmas of them ALL!

A great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of pirates suddenly cried out "Arrrr..." in terror and were suddenly silenced.

These were a result of a 15 minute IM session with my daughter in which she asked me to 'find her some videos'. She didn't know what she was in for.

Gotta love Christmas shopping. I detest the crowds generated by the bait-and-switch techniques of most of the damned retailers. I went to Staples tonight (assuming they would be slightly less annoying) and was rewarded with the usual. Rebates that suddenly 'didn't apply' because I didn't go fight a bunch of asshats who lined up at 6am for the promised single item they carried in stock and advertise in their circular. Nevermind the item I wanted to buy was in stock (several were). You'd think if the item was so little in demand that there were several at 7:30 pm, they WANT to sell it. WTF do I know, eh?

I found a small gym near my house (2.5 miles) that is open 24 hour. I may go and talk to them next week. It isn't 24 Hour Fitness but I guess it will have to do.

Well, apparently Matt Keepers* was told SB is not reopening**. This despite the fact nothing has been moved from the place and no notices are present. Truly odd but it sadly puts the nail in the coffin and removes all doubt.

* (Matt is the son of a very old acquaintance of mine and sold beans to Jeff)
** (Phone call with Jeff's father)

I love annual reviews. They are like tax audits and root canals.

They give me a chance to practice my innate 'be as nebulous as possible' Scorpio skills since this year we have some online system in which I am supposed to indicate why, in the words of Kevin Spacey in American Beauty, I rule. Kind of like being incredibly PC but not as annoying as being incredibly PC.

I guess 5 years is a long time for any ATX power supply...especially when the power company likes to shut off power for extended periods of time (read: longer than my UPS will hold out). My main home PC had its power supply go south today. I am not sure when it happened but it was before I got to work. 10 minutes of work and it was replaces (had another Antec supply in a spare PC I haven't tried to get working yet). It looks good for now. It posted and everything came up ok.

Which brings me to another topic. Had the PC just lost power and decided to lay dormant in an effort to annoy the hell out of me, I wonder if any broadband router companies (Netgear, Linksys, etc) offer WoL in their products. That way, I could give the thing a good nudge to wake it up. I think this would be a cool feature...far better then the arbitrary ping offered in most 'diagnostic' menus of such routers.

Since work is blocking one port I like to use for remote access, I may put Logmein on my laptop. I am not a fan of doing it but I suppose it makes for a second way in to home from work. So far, I like the service. The automated clipboard sharing is cool and the full screen mode is great. And it is free...can't beat that!

This weekend is the horrid migration. I expect utter and complete 9th layer of hell 'forced to chew on broken auto safety glass while my face is forced into a wood chipper' pain from the experience. They wanted it, I suspect a ton of shit will break. Today, DNS broke. For no reason. I didn't care because that machine won't be a DNS server in 2 days and there was a backup anyway. Just a sign of things yet to happen.
