Spawn2's netbook is totally fubar. It won't boot and the lame M$ recovery crap is useless. He wanted to get a SATA to USB cable, pull the hard drive and copy the important files, and do a factory reset.
I said "save the money": no need for the cable. Boot the sucker with a Ubuntu USB stick, copy whatever you want to our terrabyte USB external HD that we use for backups on one of our more important boxes, and go from there.
So far, so good.
I'm the world's forgotten boy. The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy.
I'm such a terrible programmer. I should just stop these silly contests. I'm 100% guaranteed to put a bug in and then not find it. Put all the corner cases in I can think of, get the right answer on my machine for everything, but wrong answer in the contest. So annoying. Really hard to debug if you can't put in the test case that causes it.

Comcast Business Class absolutely ^%$#()& blows.
I order a second circuit in order to set up a demo network. I request a strip of 13 IP's. The tech writes down 14 on the paperwork. I need to know exactly what IP addresses are mine as taking one away could be catastrophic. I call in. Tech says, yes, the numbers are wrong, shift left one bit. I log into the second modem. He's wrong. I call back. They have no way to get me to the original tech so I have to go through everything all over again. 30 minutes later, I'm still on hold waiting for confirmation.
Comcast can bite me.
Magic Lantern firmware for Canon cameras is AWESOME. Easy to do all kinds of stuff like pull focus for video, highlight fringes around in-focus subjects for shallow DoF work, zerbra-striping portions of the live view that are over/under exposed. Audio monitoring with headphones, manual audio gain, disabling the auto gain.
All kinds of sweet crap. Just page after page of awesome custom menus with inline context help and full help built in.
There's even a freaking clap remote trigger. You can set the sound level to trigger a shot remotely. Set the camera on a rock on a hike, stand with your sweetie, snap your fingers behind your back, takes a picture.
Oh, oh, and there's a slit-scan mode. I think we might be able to use this for finish-line work... but I need to try it out. It looks like it takes a series of low-res images, then there's some free software to chain them together.
You can even do HDR video where each frame alternates between two ISO levels, then free PP software to blend each pair into an HDR image.
Just freaking awesome. I'm going to donate some $$ to the project. This software is incredible.
Yeah, it was built for the cameras with HD capabilities. Unfortunately, they don't support the 7D, which is fading it from my wish list. I wonder how long before ML is available on a 5Diii. It might coincide with how long I need to court the idea with SWMBO...
Will it work with a T3000?
I have found the most annoying thing about writing my thesis:
Writing it in LaTeX and having your major professor ask for it in .doc
Road: Cat 2|Cross: Cat 2
you graduating at end of this semester/quarter? if so, congrats!
Astronomers are apparently crummy programmers.

That site looks like a bad influence on me
Lucky for me that lantern stuff is all Canon based. Otherwise I might be forced to upgrade my body....
