It actually works!

Hard drive, upgraded. A few sprinkles of black magic to taste and Im Up and Running in 45 minutes too. Damn.

I AM good. Shit.

Big enough for a scratch partition, and one to accomodate a Linux volume too.

Geek on. :-)
Somewhere in East Oakland (This means it abuts the hills, not the sea.. still cant get used to the change of direction) late last night

I give the motel clerk my voucher, and I roll into the 30's-40's era motel forecourt in the dark, searching for my room number.

Ah, number 106, that looks like..

"Oh shit, oh shit ohhh shit.."

No. I dont think thats it.

Ah, number 104. Open door *whoof*

Decades of cigarrette funk wafts out. And Im afraid to think what else as I eye the bed cover suspiciously.

I may take it to the laundromat meself. In the meanwhile, Im sleeping on my coat.

Its damnably cold.. ahh, the heater works.

TV. Cool. Ooooh, and a free porn channel! (No babydoll, I didnt watch most of it. Nuh-uh.)

On closer evaluation, its a well used motel room.. but not as bad as others Ive pulled into around the country.

I sleep well, tucked in with the knowledge that Ive got an angel watching over me.

And, well - Mac owners. (Done in the style of the Apple 'Switch' ads..)


Purging is good for the soul

"Don't procrastinate. Do it tomorrow."

Ok. Ok. Ok. I'll do it. I'll do it. I'll do it.

Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

(Heheh, anyone know what movie that quote came from? Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Buehler?)

Its time to upgrade to the Big Drive. Ive backed my stuff, save a few sundry.

And since I refuse to offload images off the camera until I have the room, its time.

*sigh* Upgrading. It should take me an hour or two technically. But, I know I'll be fiddling for a month. And thats IF everything works.

And its Merc retrograde time. Gah.

*breathe* I know, I know.

Anyhoodles (thanks for that one Ms. Angeline :-), my point being, here are some randoms from images I wont be keeping on my hard drive as I bring in the new.

No flexin' here, nuttin fancy, no stories, no themes - just purging.

Yeah, purging is good for the soul.

Or, at least makes space for more.
