The backup of the hard drive was going fine, and it was starting in on error-checking when brushette trod upon the power strip and turned off the external hard drive. Ack! Backup failed after 6 hours of work. However, I followed that by copying the My Documents file into the new external, and so our vital materials are protected.

After dinner, forestcats and I watched The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and enjoyed it again. Now, the similarities to Buckaroo Banzai were more apparent. We thought it was pretty fun.

I'll be oncall again tomorrow for a week. I think tonight calls for a bottle of wine, while I still can. Certain undiscussed activities in our bedroom a couple of nights back uncovered several bottles of various red wines that we'd stockpiled, and unearthing them we found that most had aged sufficiently for uncorking. We'll see what time has wrought.
