sprint to the finish

Jacob’s been in town for a few days, so we’ve been enjoying the simple pleasures of “hockey and pork”:http://www.loolix.com/2003/12/#30. I’m not sure exactly what’s on the menu for tonight’s New Year’s drop-in, but I figure Shona and I can keep people from starving. We sure do have a lot of chicken!

We’re moving a machine from one ISP to another today, starting in about 90 minutes. There are any number of things, technical, social, or even astrological that could go horribly wrong with this procedure, but I’ve got my faith on.

If you’re in the Toronto area, and aren’t a complete jerk, feel free to drop by our place after 8 and watch us fumble around with “Jacob’s gift”:http://au.playstation.com/ps2/hardware/eyetoy.jhtml.

Update: the server move was more successful than I could have even hoped for. Total downtime from “halt” at the original location to “move complete, enjoy your NYE” at the new location: ~25 minutes. Get there.

    So how is the eyetoy, anyways? I’m really tempted, but not sure it’s worth the coin. Let me know, will ya?

    From what (little) I’ve seen of it, it’s pretty excellent. Especially with a bit of booze in ya.

    I’ll know more later, when I try to work it into our weekly Angel-viewing get-together. Remind me to report back then!

    Empirical evidence that I shouldn’t be involved in any future server moves, I’d say.

    If I could chown kev’s sense of humour back, I would, honest.

    Now what nmakes you think I would post something like that in such a public venue? I don’t think chowning my sense of humour would help, it needs something like a forklift upgrade instead.
