So Much For Relaxing…

I was going to take a weekend to relax. Really I was. But I’m on call, see. So my Saturday started with a page at 0608 – a dead system. I was at the office by 0715, and fixed that, then worked on a couple of other tasks before heading back home. So … I washed the car, cut the lawns, finished the mulching, and cleaned up the side yard. That put paid to Saturday.

Today, Darlion (nee´ Harmony), the 2007 MacBook Pro was laid to rest. It had shut itself off several times in the last couple of weeks. Just a matter of time, really, until it ate data I cared about. So I migrated everything off the system, and issued the (probably) final shutdown command. Supper out tonight at Mi Hacienda with Marcia and LindaRose, yum.
