FortKnox's Journal: I'm an idiot 17

Journal by FortKnox
Yes, indeed, I'm stupid.

Got home last night at around 8:30pm. Checked on Joey, then went downstairs to see what the problem the server had. As I was reattaching the monitor I realized that when I checked it on Sunday, I was using the onboard video, which I disabled because I had a good video card in it.

D'oh!

The only problem it has? An old, noisy HD that should be replaced (actually, just removed, cause I have a 20GB drive in there already in slave), and a bad keyboard (maybe the keyboard PS/2 input on the motherboard... I haven't checked it with a good keyboard). That's it. Its back up and running in all its glory ;-)

BTW - this place is boring cause so many of you are doing the "its not really a blackout, but I'll use that name, cause its been used before, but the real reason is so I get mod points, or at least drag those with mod points out of the bell curve" movement. Its really pretty pathetic. If you people want a moderation movement that the editors will see, just ask me. I'm pretty good at stirring up some trouble... after all, its how I got the large fanbase in the first place ;-)

  • What's the "blackout?"

    I've been away for about a week, but only because I was working on this cluster-fuck of a project at work -- and literaly had no time to check the dot.

    • Read heliocentric's JEs...

      here is the latest one [slashdot.org] about it.

      Honestly, if you like reading everyday and posting everyday, why are you trying to stop? I guess I don't understand it one bit.
      • heh, well I've never been one to go with the crowd... or stuff like that :)

        i dunno -- i guess if this is your thing, the blackout, then sweet! go forth and abstain.

        what i think is funny, and so very typical of myself -- is my "blackout" was last week :) out of step with the world :-D

    • Heck, even at work I F5 pretty regularly and I didn't even know... and I have helio fanned!

      Moderation is something I'm not interested in. It doesn't effect what my primary interest on /. is (the journals) but what I'm least interested in (FP discussions in which I don't comment [i.e. the only place you can use points]).

      I enjoy reading good journals and writing. /. provides that. I'm not going to deny myself that experience when it only damages myself.

        Yup. Exactly.

        The way I see it, it's sort of this trendy thing that folks are glomming onto, like the whole Lent thing.

        So I'm like, whatEVAR.

    What is this blackout? I thought the journal entries have been rather sparse the last few days. I just figured it was a slow weekend. Am I missing something?

  • I've been posting a lot, reading a ton- and getting my mod points like clock work. About once every 2 weeks or so. I metamoderate every day- unless its the weekend and I don't get on line.

    But maybe what seems like being around /. a lot to me- is not much compared to others- I don't know. I always get rid of my mod points real quick anyway. I like having the top of my /. page clean.

  • Don't really see a need to blackout since I get mod points regularly.

    Might try not to journal much just to reduce the load they'll have when they return from the blackout; not that I do it much anyway :)

  • but I'm busy, so you aren't seeing much of me.

    if you don't mind me, you're in good company (being an idiot that is). my most recent computer trouble sprouted from a very large defrag and severe program uninstallation in windows 2000 without giving it any chances to reboot. no components were fried, not even the HDD, at least not until i prett much manually garbled the file system. go me!

    i usually maintain a low profile. don't mistake it for participation in the blackout. i will be amused if they still don't get mod points. but good for them if t
  • I'm just laying low because I'm laying low.
    And it's quiet anyway.
    A few weeks back I spent some time working on a troll account. Gotta get that Karma up, you know.
    Other than that, just spending my KoC gold and building up attacks...
  • Ain't nobody here but us chickens...

    I'm busy but not blackouted (blackoutified)... eh whatever.

    Those of us left need to support each other ...

    Anybody got a good joke?

  • cause I have a 20GB drive in there already in slave

    Don't you know the use of the word slave is offensive to some people! Sheesh - the insensitivity. What is the world coming to?

Whoever dies with the most toys wins.
