salvorHardin's Journal: A 'favour' from a 'friend'.

Journal by salvorHardin

So, I went away for a little while, and upon returning home, I find that a housemate has done me the favour of upgrading my main machine from Win2k to WinXP. Sounds nice, you might think, except that the Win2k partition was only 4gb of the 40 on the disk. The rest was used up by the main RedHat 9 installation. Which is no longer there. So now, I am downloading Debian ISOs over 56k. Watching the download stats, I am reminded of Donnie Darko. 3 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds. That is when the Windows will end.

In other news, I will be 25 tomorrow.
