Most recently, I tried to resize a partition on a drive that had consisently failed SMART tests (it's a long story). Needless to say, the drive instantly screwed up.
Lesson in deffered maintainence:
My family has a 1950s bulldozer. It has 2 batteries ('couse it's a 24v system) which are about 16 years old. These old batteries died today when we needed it most. See, we were cutting down a tree, when internal pressures in the tree trapped the saw. The dozer was the only thing we had powerful enough to pull the tree down. But, because the batteries were dead, we were left with an expensive saw, stuck in a dangerous half cut tree. Lesson learned.
I've had an interesting idea, the metaquote! ,,enthusiastically, whilst raising my hand in am epic manner,, Everything that would go outside quotes in narrative writting, would go inside the metaquotes. ,,I clariy,, Perhaps it's just because I like layering things, especially such meta ways as this, ,,I confess,, but I feel like this adds back something that was missing from regular textual conversation. ,,I continue, in a calmer tone,, I do like the increased expressivety it adds. ,,earnestly,,
Can you believe there was once a time when I turned my computer off every night?
Perhaps I'm just going through this right now because I'd rather deal with the deepest existential philosophy of my deepest, earliest emotions, then to deal with the fact that I've borked some stuff, and desperately need to restart my computer. I have so much stuff open!
And why did I have to play it through a silver cd drive? AAGHH
Also, why are they still such a pain in the but on Linux?
I'm a young beginning programmer interested in all areas of computing. I'm working on building my own game engine. I also love to tinker with hardware.
