Well, That Sucked

So I'm mucking around with my computer, and decide to play some music. "F: is not formatted. Format now? Y/N" WTF?

So a "quick" CHKDSK later, I discover that there are several errors in the filesystem, caused by unreadable blocks. In short: the hard drive is failing. :(

So it looks like I'm going to be shopping for a new hard drive after work today. C'est la vie.

Update: And away I go, into the wild blue yonder, looking for a new hard drive.

Update 2: Got a new 250 GB hard drive, and Windows is now (slowly) partitioning it. Once that's done we begin the Great Copy.

Update 3: Finished copying the data over, now I just need to copy over the Linux data and I'll be all finished.


Lego Star Wars, for the PS2

Saw this at GameSpot while looking for information about Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and saw a preview for Lego Star Wars, for the PS2.

Yes, that's right. It's a PS2 game, based on the LEGO Star Wars sets. It's scheduled to be released in April of 2005, for the PC, PS2, X-Box, and Game Boy Advance.

I really have nothing more to say, other than this sounds like a really, really strange idea.


All I Want For Christmas...

Well, I said I'd post a Christmas list, so here it is - my half-hearted attempt at a Christmas list.


So Lazy...


  • Get new Christmas lights for outdoors.
  • Put up Christmas lights.
  • Clean Room.
  • Finish new design for main site, creating an actual blog page for this blog (and not just the forum interface).


  • Got Vericide, my Undead Warlock, to Level 20.



Flat Tire

Not much point in this, but...

I got a flat tire tonight. It sucked.

Now I'm going to need to go get it replaced. It's a nice gash in the tire.

So I'm probably going to be up early (for me :)) calling mechanics and seeing what they can do. If I can, I'm going to send it in for a tuneup at the same time.

Update: Looks like I'm going to have wind up replacing both front tires on Friday. Get the engine tuned up too. Yay?
