Geek Anvil (currently geeking...)

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Started tidying up my Sisters bootleg collection in iTunes (or Apple Music, as it's now called) :D

Tagged them all with the genre of "live", and have found that creating smart playlists which filter on the band name and the genre, combined with "album title contains [year]" breaks it down nicely, and really helps me see what I have and don't have :D :wake:

Wow is right! Very cool.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

Well this is impressive. My PC at work is still switched on as I need to be able to shell into it while working from home. However I daren't trigger a reboot remotely just in case it doesn't come back up so...

Code: Select all

$ uptime
 15:51:25 up 210 days, 24 min, 21 users,  load average: 0.30, 0.18, 0.11
(The 21 users are because I've got that many sessions running within GNU screen terminal multiplexer.)

Like they say, Linux needs to be rebooted about as often as Windows needs to be reinstalled ;D

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to stay up for 210 days is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

:lol: :lol:

I managed to order most of my bootlegs by year of recording, but some of those pesky bootleggers insist on doing multi-year compilations which bugger up my simplistic indexing and send me to drink muttering 'it was never offside and Pickford should have been sent off' and when will this sentence ever end.

CG - a petabyte of storage. I've never seen a petabyte of storage before - it's surprisingly small. Like, you'd fit it in one server rack kind of small. AND IT'S ALL MINE! (cackle)

I still remember the first hard drive I saw, about 50cm by 50cm by 25cm and it stored an incredible 10 whole megabytes! :lol:
