Time Event
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Saw this last night. Not grabbed.Collapse )

Our viewing was at the local independent cinema, which is simply spiffing.Collapse )

All this, and a fun evening with friends, and a marvellous meal cooked by katlinel, too.

And we still had kids at our showing, too.

Current Mood: disappointed
Failed again
The next stage in the attempt to upgrade the Linux installation has just failed. This time around, a friend had kindly lent me a DVD drive to use, since both my DVD and CD drives have problems verifying the disks.

Worse than before. Took about 20 minutes to load from the drive (instead of 23 seconds...), and then failed to uncompress the kernel. Didn't even get as far as booting. A second attempt took only 5 minutes to load, but still failed on a CRC. Meanwhile, my own CD drive was non-functional.

I also tried booting and verifying with my own drives in place, but with one or 'tother unplugged. Still got the same behaviour, which is that disks 1 and 2 verify okay, and disks 3 and 4 don't. Yet they all verify perfectly on machines at work.

Sigh. I'm doomed. Doomed, I say.

Current Mood: depressed
