I think I'll post some more JoCo and Hodgman vids soon.
14th-Feb-2009 08:44 pm - Hello from Intrepid Ibex Island!
I finally got Nvidia to play nice with Ubuntu 8.10 and am now fine tuning things.
On the morning of the twelfth, I turned on my computer. After logging in to Ubuntu, the computer, instead of going to my desktop, started working like crazy and just hung on the in-between screen. An unreadable error message popped up, so I just rebooted and logged in again. Again the computer tried to give me an error message and could not get to my desktop.

After breaking into the terminal mode, I finally saw the error.
ata1.00: Status: {DRDY ERR} Error: {UNC}

A hard disk error on the Ubuntu drive. The system was trying to read a sector and couldn't, preventing my desktop from loading.

On my computer, there are three drives. A 160 GB USB drive I use for backups, a 320 GB Win XP drive that came with the computer and a older 120 GB drive I installed Ubuntu on.

The BIOS is set to load the Ubuntu drive, but after a quick edit, I loaded Win XP to see if I could find out how to fix it. Unfortunately, Win XP does not recognize that my monitor and graphics card exist for some reason, so I had to load XP Safe Mode w/Networking just to get Internet access.

From the forums I found out how I could force a disk check while in a Live CD session. I burned a copy of Ubuntu 8.10 and loaded the live session. The disk check and fixes lasted between 90 and 120 minutes. The check did what I needed it to do and I was able to get Ubuntu to load normally.

However, depending on an older drive for my main OS didn't seem wise so now I am backing up everything to the USB drive so I can install Ubuntu on the 320 GB drive.

I love this song

13th-Feb-2009 02:01 am - so far so good
I was able to get drive fixed it seems. going to be on the look out for any files that weren't repaired.

NOTE: my previous post about being on the live cd ubuntu was made about 5 hours earlier than it says. The live cd was on UTC.

I am now coming to you LIVE from Ubuntu 8.10 Live CD session. And I can access all my drives again. Time for backups and fixoring!

I REALLY want to back up more files before I try doing anything to fix the drive issue that is making Ubuntu not work. I have an Ubuntu 8.10 disk but I need to try to get the disk check to work. I may have to get a new hard drive as well.

And yes, right now I am still in Win XP safe mode.

This sucks.

I am getting weird errors in Ubuntu that prevent me from doing anything. I had to log on to Windows XP just to get Internet. I may just back up all my files and reinstall ubuntu from scratch.

http://www.brokenpicturetelephone.com/

1. Someone writes a note describing a scene
2. Someone else draws the scene
3. Someone else writes a note describing the drawing
4. Someone else draws the previous description
5. Repeat 3 and 4 until EPIC WIN

You can choose to only write, only draw, or do both. The site itself is a little glitchy but mostly works.

If enough people are interested, can I start a private game.

It seems like there will be 2nd seasons of "Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu" and "Spice and Wolf" coming down the anime pipeline soon. There have also been vicious and hurtful rumors of another second season coming soon, but I will give that no credence until I see the dead bodies. Habeas Corpus Baby!

Internet speakers: Habeas Corpus is Latin for "pics or it didn't happen".
