A mystery!

| No Comments

So I have a machine called Walrus and it has some problems. I leave work around 7 pm and when I get back, sometimes the machine is on, sometimes it isn't. I shut down the machine (shutdown -h now) each night, so it's not sleeping. Anyway, here are some logs.

Those huge numbers are me showing up to work (not every day) and those small numbers are the machine starting up. I'm not sure how, or why, but I'll figure it out at some point...maybe. Anyway, if anyone knows anything about Ubuntu (9.04) powering up at will (it's a Dell Optiplex something-or-other), you should comment on it...

Another Concert

| No Comments

So I bought tickets to another concert. This time it's a lot closer and a lot larger: Celtic Woman at the Xcel Energy Center on March 24th (coincidentally, that's the same day as the Database Architecture midterm and the Theory and Methods in Religious Studies paper). As always, I have two tickets.
