Well, the shipment of new computer toys that I ordered on
Monday has been charged to my account, but I haven't
received a tracking number or products yet. For that matter,
I never received an actual confirmation of my order (other
than the automatic "this is what you ordered" response I got
from submitting my order).
I've surprised myself, and for once I have most of the decisions for my Christmas shopping taken care of well in advance. Of course, I haven't actually _purchased_ anything yet, but then again I also have plans to correct that problem next week as well. Historically I've always left things to the last minute, so it's a bit different not having to worry so much about it.
Had an amusing episode with an old cobbled-together Pentium
system one of our clients wanted us to turn into a mail
relay for them. I had managed to get it happily installing
away when ahosey wandered over
to look at
it. He gives it a funny look and *blip!* the thing reboots
and manages to fry something vital inside itself so that it
no longer responds to keyboard events after POSTing.
We're no longer letting him anywhere near the machine room anymore. ;)
