Multiple snapshots so damn amazing for my job.
Recording workflows SO FUCKING>/b> GOOD for my job

Seriously, this changes everything.

We're already planning how we can use the full clones/partial clones to help the structure of how we do things here.

5.0 rocks my socks hardcore.

Totally dude. We've been testing it with our software and such, doing generally beta, to make sure it doesn't kill anything.

We're also hoping we can get it on all the developer machines so we can send the videos to them (or at least the Media Player codex). It will be so useful to send the exact workflow that broke something.

We'd already worked around the lack of cloning by having images on special nework drives. Clones will be so much faster...

Putting images on network drives?

What kind of networking infrastructure are you using?

While you did boo spending ~$1000 today (Ozzfest + Flights + Rental Car), the Yays include: 1) Visiting Seattle 2) Seeing Graye 3) Going to Ozzfest 4) Spending lots of quality time with your breathtakingly beautiful girlfriend. YAY!

Yeah, plus spending $500 yesterday on my car.

Ouchie.

Thank god for tax rebates and saving up.

Watch it

There are certain people who would love to hear about your current state of financial solvency.

Re: Watch it

Most of those expenses I'm splitting with anywhere from one to three other people. I can float the cash now because I've been saving in case of car tragedy (thank you $4 lunches), and because I finally get tax rebates instead of a thank you note from the government.

But yeah, he can't have that money, unless he's willing to car pool with me. My trusty chariot isn't lasting forever, despite Tommy's wonderful ministrations.

Your clone is still cloning. Where do you want me to put it?

Does this mean you finally figured out how to change the screen resolution up from 640 x 400 for your freeBSD VM?

Oh, and just to let you know where my freeBSD adventure took me: RTFM
kingfox From: kingfox Date: May 6th, 2005 10:13 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I figured it out already. Easy way to do it:
  1. /stand/sysinstall
  2. Post-setup config options.
  3. Configure X11 server.
  4. Change the monitor settings.
  5. ???
  6. Profit!

Yay indeed!

They're now listing two days on PNC's schedule, but only one date on OzzFest.com. The date we bought for, the best you can get is lawn right now. The other date, the best you can get is a section as far back as we are, four rows behind us.

Whew, looks like we made the right call!
