I had two drives fail on my backup at the same time but managed to copy the files off before it completely died. I then created a new mirrored backup and copied the files back. I thought I was good.

I was going to remove the temporary copy (actually reformat the disk it is on) but decided to check out the backup first. A bunch of files copied over as 0 bytes for some reason and some sub-directories did not copy over. Boy am I glad I checked.

I don't know if anybody watches both these shows but there was a cross-over episode recently. Claudia kissed Fargo and Fargo clearly looked interested. Just a couple episodes back, Claudia said she was just 16 (in the whole first date thing). Fargo's is definitely supposed to be an adult. When she said she was 16 I was surprised that was the age they thought she was playing. Apparently the writer(s) of this episode were too.

OK ... the Eureka episode was even creepier if you think she was 16.

I always find that last E-mail from people when they leave the company kind of odd and annoying. They usually go on about how great a time they had at the company and how it was a great experience and how much they'll miss everybody and include personal contact info but they're blasting it out to the whole company. Most of the time I don't even know who those people are.

Leading up to my last day at Advent, I was thinking that just wasn't my style. I didn't want to write a goodbye E-mail at all. Some of my co-workers insisted that you need to send something. In the end, I did send a goodbye E-mail but it was very much my way. It was, "Bye <eom>". The people that know me appreciated that and were amused. The rest ... well I wasn't worried about them.

Sometimes I wish LJ had won over Facebook. My old LJ posts are much more interesting than my old Facebook updates.

Looks like it could be interesting. Anybody started watching it yet?

My self image seems to differ fairly significantly from my photos but seems to match what I see when I look in the mirror. How's that work?

I always think I look huge in photos. I don't think I'm skinny by any stretch of the imagination but I always feel I look fatter in photos than I feel. I'd expect the mirror to be the same as photos though but it is not.

Off to LA for the weekend for my 15 year high school reunion!

I chopped my hair off. Little shorter than I wanted. I was aiming for shoulder-blade and got shoulder. Feels funny too. I said 12 inches. I was thinking at the longest part. I think she maybe though at the shortest part. It'll grow back.

Check out the iPhone app. It's actually pretty slick. The new web mail isn't bad either.

Too bad I don't have Comcast digital voice (I don't use my land line enough) and I don't use Comcast as my primary email address. I might keep it around for the TV listings.

Shows how much I watch network TV. I just saw an ad for Castle and realized it was Nathan Fillion. Anybody watch it? Any good? Any other shows I should be watching?

Just about the only TV series I've watched recently were either on FX or was Lost.
