U-Rock Kids

    Did a little work on the webserver hard drive.  I started by putting the drive into the Blue-Dragon and seeing what I could see.  The answer: not much.  I was unable to mount the drive so even run the SMART tools.  So I tried to do a basic sector-by-sector copy.  That didn't work out so well either.  The result: I can't get much off the dead drive.

Micro-Dragon Hard Drive Failure

   I noticed the website was acting a little strange this morning.  It didn't want to load the images on the page.  So I decided I would give Apache a restart.  But when I logged into the server, it failed to load much of anything.  So, I decided to give the server a reboot.  It never came back.
   It is my guess that the hard drive has died.  I'm not sure what kind of error it has, but it's bad.  I don't have time to work on it, and I don't have a backup server setup.  Do has to suffer through some down-time.
Humans vs Zombies

Humans vs Zombies

   Today was an other round of Humans Vs. Zombies.  I don't participate in competitive activities, but I had to come out for the event.  So I dressed in my medieval outfit.  My story: I was preparing to siege a castle be catapulting zombies over the wall.  But my mage got drunk and messed up the re-animate spell.  Instead of raising the dead, my mage sent me into the future to a location with undead.  So my goal was to collect a bunch of zombies and take them back with me this.  Time with my new mage Xix—my old mage didn't survive having his head placed on a pike.
   We consume a loaf of bread made of 5 cups in about 20 minutes--fresh bread just doesn't last.  So I decided trying an increase in the loaf size.  Pictured is an 11 cup loaf which I hope will last a little longer.  This is right at the edge of what my mixer can knead.
