Tired and Disturbed
It's been a day. We woke up late this morning and Omaha made these wonderful blintzes, but after getting the girls dressed and ready to go we did a few routine things about the house before heading out to a birthday party at a friend of Yamaarashi-chan's that she sees rarely these days. I'm not sure why, but I felt alienated and tired all day. I spent most of the party in a corner, trying not to get too involved and instead reading Mirror Dance by Lois McMaster Bujold. The birthday girl injured herself on the rental bouncy castle and had to go to the hospital, but the dozen or so little girls carried on without her.

We left about five so we could get Yamaarashi-chan back to her mother's house by six. When I got home, I found my main box had crashed and this message waiting in the log:

hdb: dma_intr: status=0x7f { DriveReady DeviceFault SeekComplete 
    DataRequest CorrectedError Index Error } 
hdb: dma_intr: error=0x7f { DriveStatusError UncorrectableError 
    SectorIdNotFound TrackZeroNotFound AddrMarkNotFound }, 
    LBAsect=260013951, sector=18796514 
hdb: DMA disabled 
ide0: reset: success 

Great. Lovely. Wonderful. Well, it is the oldest drive in the box; I wouldn't be surprised if the heat was causing some of that though. It recovered, but it's tossed that error at least once since then. I took the cover off the case in the hope of cooling them down, but those drives are running at least 75C or so.

And I left my usenet troller on and when I got home, there were a couple of new things on my hard drive, including an anime porn that I'm not going to name; it was just so gross that I'm hoping I can erase it from my brain. I did get a batch of self-titled "Brain-rotting super cute jpop"; I'll probably listen to it tomorrow.

Current Mood: disturbed
