Daily Zen

I burned incense, swept the earth,
And waited for a poem to come
Then I laughed, and climbed the mountain,
Leaning on my staff.
How I'd love to be a master
Of the blue sky's art:
See how many sprigs of snow-white cloud
Has been brushed in so far today?

- Yuan Me (1716-1798)
got my eye on you

My Exciting Life! *sigh*

Tech Post

My 500 GB internal HDD should be delivered today...

Now I'll have a fun project...Backup and restore! Wonder if I ought just go ahead and update to OSX 10.6? The replacement drive is bigger and faster.

Med Post

Annnnnd I've got a doctor's appointment this after noon. Been trying to get in to see my PCP for several months now. Was told Tuesday that she'll be out until January. She must be some kind of sick. Missed her the last 3 out of 5 visits...

I have scripts to be renewed so I need to see SOMEONE, dammit!

Formatted

No, not Door matted. FORMATted. Installing OSX on my new drive. Looked at some procedures for installing this mutha. Holy moley there's a lot of steps.

But I'll have a shiny new install of OSX on a shiny new 500GB Hard drive! That will be quite a switch from the 160GB original drive. This thing is supposed to combine the storage capability of a traditional 7200 RPM Hard Drive and the speed of a Solid State Drive. Sweet!

In theory it should move things along quite a bit.




Hope this goes better than most of my afternoon did. At least I can LOOK like I know what I'm doing with this. **grins**

Getting to hate doctors. Especially the corporate styled ones.

This SW install is gonna take some time too... At least an hour or so. Just to install the OS. Then there's the updates and stuff. Couple hours at least.

More than hour and a half I've already spent on this. Guess I can get caught up on some videos I should be watching and sending back to netflix.

Then I can get to the really hairy part of this. Pull my lap top apart and take out the old drive and put in the new one. And then put it all back together and pray. Heh. Looks like there about 20 tiny ass screws to this. Oh boy.

I void warranties. For real...
