still nothing...

This is becoming a sounding board for my whining -- lame. Umm. Just upgraded from postgresql 7.1.2 to 7.2.1 and then spent the next four hours "fixing" stuff. and then went to bed and woke up to the fact that I really hadn't finished fixing stuff. And spent another four or five hours futzing with that.

Also at work my main machine is kinda fuxored -- apparently it was locked up, rebooted, rebooted again, and ... samba and resin aren't running right and I can't find apache all of the sudden -- that's a bit more than passing strange. though apache seems to be running in that the machine responds, but I don't see it in any process and apachectl is missing and there's nothing in rc.d for it either. weird.

Creativity has been sorely lacking and I've been in a horrid mood for the last many days. Saturday I went on a walk to the botanical garden with friends and while the garden was quite pretty I think I got some minor heatstroke, sunburn, and really wasn't in the mood to be hanging out and relaxing. I wrote a poem a couple of days ago. It's kinda cute.

I suppose that's it.

poemranker.com at least suffered relatively little downtime (order of an hour or so) from the database upgrade. And I at least learned that my backups are working properly and I learned also better how to restore stuffs.

    Also, I have a goodreads author account, now, thanks to Rigor Amortis (and other sorts of procrastination) and such. Which this LJ now syndicates to…
