Post 3193 - Weekend

Hi. Sunday night.

I have spent the last 3 hours fiddling and farting around with an old desktop computer. It is my media server, so I need it to run things like Plex. What happened was, an external hard drive failed this weekend, so I took out the actual hard drive from the enclosure and installed it in the computer in question. After much effort I got it installed and fired it up, only to discover that the hard drive that I swapped out contains the master boot record for the computer, and the grub menu, so it no longer boots. Sigh. Meanwhile, the "new" hard drive I stuck in there cannot be found, meaning it really is toast, or maybe I didn't put it in correctly. Too late tonight to fart around with it any more. In the morning I will re-install linux mint on the solid state drive. That drive I swapped out should be reformatted, anyway.

I didn't write on Saturday because I was worn out from a whirlwind trip to the Valley. I was there a scant 6 hours and didn't have time to catch my breath the whole time I was there. When I got back here late Saturday afternoon, I had a ton of dishes to wash, and to make dinner.

This morning I cooked Valentine's Day meals for us. I am a sweetie.

And tonight, because of the b.s. I put up with in the second paragraph, I have a headache. I am going to turn in, and figure out what I am doing wrong, tomorrow.

See you then.
