On the fire.

Went to see Massive Attack at the Tower with Cronin and Gaurav tonight. Awesome show, though it seemed really short. Good crowd, everyone was really into it. Great visuals, and of course the music itself rocked. The venue itself was pretty damn nice. I don't even know that I've ever been out to 69th St., but the el stop is literally up the block. Next time I won't con Cronin into driving I guess. ;-P

Met up with Nick at Doobies afterwards, then swung by Wawa for a hoagie and came home. After a couple Mark-built gin & tonics is probably not the best time to be rebuilding my backup server, but hey. RAID 1'd a couple 300G Seagates, set up LVM, and am copying the backup images from the temp drive onto them. Totally trivial.

I remember back in the day when this crap was hard.
