i managed to upgrade my server. i found out (the hard way) that one of my cd's has a fatal scratch on it, and, in the process of rewiring, blew a power strip, which shorted out the fan on my pc's power supply. this led to the eventual demise of my power supply. of course, the power supply went while the machine was on, which blew my trillian settings out on a checkdisk, so now i lost my icq number, my msn password, and the password to some other obscure chat services i rarely use.
i should know better than try to be productive with a migraine. at least things are done - and it only took me 6 and a half hours.
weekend was ok (aside from the head). had some good eats with the fam, but seem to have missed out on other festivities. so it goes.
thanks for the well wishes from whom they have been wished. hope everyone had a nice holiday.
i'm gonna run a backup job, and try to relax a little. if my head is not better tomorrow, i am a dead meatbag.
