I was running ext3 and managed to boot up a terminal with my installation CD, and then copy the essentials from the drive onto my mp3-player. Then I tried patching things up with fsck (and boy did it complain), but I guess that some parts of init were corrupted beyond repair, because I couldn't get it running again. Anyway, the crash seemed to be a hardware failure, since I suddenly just couldn't access the drive, though everything else kept running. I did a clean install, but don't expect it to live for very long. It's my experience that once physical errors appear, they multiply rapidly until the drive is unusable. I've tried having a linux drive crash once before, and that one never recovered. I guess I'm too hard on my drives...

Beautiful in all its geekyness.
For those with a high speed connection, here's a video where a goalie manages to knock himself over, and subsequently fend off a shot while lying helpless on its back. The audience liked that a lot.

It's a lot since it was only 50 cent/$1 limit. I was getting AK or QJ or AJ all night, but I kept getting crappy flops, and raising before the flop wasn't pushing enough people out.

Edit: Plus the wizards couldn't even win with Shaq out ... god we're going to get swept. Is one game too much to ask for???

Rye - Straight
Rye & Coke
Rum - Straight
Rum & fanta wildbarries (cant get that here in north america tho )

Not a big fan of beer tho

I do that, but it doesn't work, it just means I get twice as pissed!!

What do I get at the bar?

Lager (not beer!!), pint of (English pint, as I am led to believe they are a bit smaller in America), usually if I'm just out for a chill will be Carling or similar (4.2%) or if I'm out on the razz, Stella or Heiniken Export (5%+)

Or...

Vodka (double), lime and lemonade (no ice or lemons, I cant stand lemons in my drink! And who are those fags that put a lime wedge in their bottles of Corona?! What in gods name is that all about?!)

When I go to a bar I drink beers or small glasses of pure spirits. Most often beers, as they taste great and last for a long time. I will often try all sorts of different beers - especially local ones if I'm away from home - but go for Fosters or Old Speckled Hen when they are available and there's no local beers.
Spirits are mainly drinks on the side for those occasions where a solid level of stupidity should be reached fast. The preference here would be Irish whiskeys.
In clubs I try to get Red Bull/Vodka and "fresh" lagers like Corona, Budweiser, etc. In Denmark I can't get Red Bull, but then again there's no clubs there either, so I guess my answer still stands.

I won't. First, because I already installed FC. Second, because it's not my computer, and the guy I borrowed it from uses FC. Third it's a laptop, so I have no clue as to what hardware it contains. Fourth, I don't have two weeks solely for geeking up a familiarity with a new distro at this point.

Ahhhhh I had a gf from edinburgh (ex now obviously) who I dumped.

I didn't live in edinburgh then but now I do and I was on the piss (right now) and saw one of her mates in a chip/kabab shop (I live in edinburgh just now).

(I dumped her via the method of not speaking to her but she knew well that I wasn't happy and I had said 'maybe it was a good idea we didn't go out')

Anyway her mate pulled out the same shit as she did "how can you stop speaking to a girl you've been going out with for 3 years" she thought (her mate that is) that I'd been cheating but I said I recond she (my ex) had, but not really I know she hadn't.

My ex I recon was a drama merchant pulling out all this shit but maybe I'm a dick for "dumping" her by not speaking to her even though I had said before that we didn't have a future.

Anyway what do you recon? (am I a dick? I semi think I am even though I told her what I thought)

was a good night, my date didnt screw me tho, which was kinda crap and my host family didnt allow me to do the stuff i wanted either, but no suprises there
