Wrapup of the last 16 hours
- My iBook locked up and I hard rebooted it. Windowserver and/or loginwindow.app were somehow corrupted by satan himself. My computer would get stuck in an endless loop: try to login, crash, try to login, ad infinitum…
- I fsck’d the disk, I tried replacing those apps. I tried replacing frameworks. I got nothin. Time to reinstall!
- I tried Archive/Install and everything went to wonkville on me. Time to salvage my home directory and Applications and re-reinstall.
- Finally got all ~17G of stuff copied off to Jacqui’s tower and started reinstalling right before bed.
- Got up at 6am this morning to finish the install and apply all of the updates. Once that was done I copied over my home dir and applications folder.
- Now I have to reinstall all my UNIX apps (mySQL, PHP 4.3.2, X11, maybe fink if I feel like it) and Palm Desktop
- Now I have to re-enter license #’s for a lot of stuff
- I got a nice email from Greg who runs the other Indiana Blogs site. We might be working together in the near future.
- I bought “Ben Folds” new EP from the iTunes Music Store more on this in my next post.
- I also got a lot of the cities and counties entered into my blog DB
What a fun 16hrs
