I'm sitting her in front of the computer with things I have to do, but earlier today, I installed the necessary components to do my true first full backup of a hard drive. I've often made backup copies of critical materials, but this is the first time I've ever done the whole lot at a sitting. If it weren't taking so long, or if I didn't have other duties that I need to do, I'd be overjoyed.
Last night, I helped forestcats
get sufficient motivation that we could complete something she's wanted to do for quite a long time. I'm glad I could help; it was great to see how pleased she was.
While sitting here waiting for this long process to end, I read several new comics. First was Rising Stars: Voices of the Dead
#4, which was more disjoint and harder to follow than the previous stories. Second was 303
#5 which continued the previous tale well, but it hints that it's the penultimate story in the saga. Then, The Stardust Kid
#2 which is very interesting. I'm liking this one in both art and the way the tale's being told. Finally, Warren Ellis is penning a new comic series that is being published at a marked discount, called Fell
, and issue #1 shows it to be an eerie tale about a detective in a strange precinct. I think I'll continue to follow that.
...and (updating the backup) it's still not done...
