7 movies in 3 days....

So, yes, I watched 2 more movies tonight. I decided to go on a 'never want to grow up' kick, so I watched Finding Neverland & Peter Pan (the one that came out back in 2003). Since I'm very tired, this post will prob be short.

Finding Neverland: This is a really great and aswsome movie. The story was just above what I was expecting, and the quality of the writing in this movie is hard to come by in todays hollywood. Johnny Depp & Kate Winslet were great and so were the rest of the acting in this movie. Even the acting done by the kids in this movie was great, and to me that is a hard thing to pull off. I don't think I have enjoyed such a movie in a really long time. Over all, a damn good movie & another movie I would suggest everyone go out, rent, and watch.

Peter Pan: There are times I think somethings should just not be updated cus we have new technology that we can use. This movie would be one of them. I still enjoy the storyline, and the acting was ok, but I really think they tried to hard in the special effects dept, and I really think that took some of the fun out of it. There were also parts that really screamed CGI, and other parts that just look like they digitized a painting.

But, I have to grow up, cus I have classes and work in the morning. DAMN. Now don't go getting me wrong. I like being able to drive my self around, I just love my job, and living on my own is great. But, there are days that I wish I could just fart around the house all day, and not have to worry about paying bills, getting that essays written, or wondering when next the server is going fuck up. But, I know that if, in my mind I stay young, then I shall never really grow up.

Not sure if this is a sign of a bad monday or not....

So, in my server room I have 4 computer (3 server, 1 security computer), well, I just love walking in to hear a high pitched screaming tone. But, if it's a high pitched screaming tone, I know it's not the SQL server. So, that is a good thing. The next thing that enters my mind, is this the PDC (Primary Domain Controler), or is this the old SQL server, which really has nothing too good on it, and will prob be formated and reloaded in a few weeks anyway. So, I figure out it's not the PDC, and it's just Newanda. I know right away what has gone down, it's droped a drive from the RAID config (Where have we seen this before?,LOL). But, JP told me this server is almost famous for it, and even replacing the RAID card has not helped. The other problem, it does not drop the same drive, which sucks when you are trying to troubleshoot something. So, it looks like my tasks for this week are going to have to be shifted around whale I deal with this.

So, you are all saying, is there a plus side to this? YES. I have as much time as I want to get this old server backup and running. No midnight rebuilds, no coming in at 3am, to start a second rebuild, no sleeping in the office.

So, it's nothing to really bad and something else to do.

Peace,
Kevin
