Sweet Fuck, no!

I came home, all excited to edit up the show into mp3s for your enjoyment, only to be greeted by the sound of a scraping disk in my laptop…

DiskWarrior shows no love, either:

DiskWarrior App: Unknown disk: ‘disk3s3’, sectors: 116948022, size: 512, type: ”
DiskWarrior App: Rebuilding disk device: disk3s3
DiskWarrior App: disk3s3 Extents, Catalog and Attributes tree sizes total 454.19 MB.
DiskWarrior App: disk3s3: Bad (slow) blocks appearing in range 101896 to 102151, unless disk was asleep and delay was due to spin-up. (-1835501)

Why did this have to happen *before* I got that show off my disk…

[EDIT: DiskWarrior brought the love – The index is repaired, with only 1 file damaged. First order of business – copying that show off.]

[EDIT 2: DiskWarrior can’t repair the disk, but I can build me a “preview disk.” I used this preview disk to get everything that I didn’t backup last week off the drive. All seems to be okay with the recording, thank god…]

[EDIT 3: Trying to even do a second repair left me toasted..

DiskWarrior App: disk3s3: Bad (slow) blocks appearing in range 1270352 to 1270607, unless disk was asleep and delay was due to spin-up. (-1835311)
DiskWarrior App: disk3s3: Bad (slow) blocks appearing in range 1270608 to 1270863, unless disk was asleep and delay was due to spin-up. (-1835274)
DiskWarrior App: disk3s3: Bad (slow) blocks appearing in range 1271120 to 1271375, unless disk was asleep and delay was due to spin-up. (-1835206)
DiskWarrior App: disk3s3: Bad (slow) blocks appearing in range 1271888 to 1272143, unless disk was asleep and delay was due to spin-up. (-1834781)

This disk appears to be dead. 🙁

Published!

In other news, I recently made headlines over at Bayblab for my post on the observable action of evolution concerning the speciation of Helacyton gartleri.

Here’s the quote (with a mis-spelled[1] last name and all):

Ryan DuBois at The Daily Dub gives us a brief overview of HeLa cervical cancer cells and their 1991 designation as their own species, Helacyton gartleri. He uses this as a recent, obvservable example of evolution in action.


[1] Everyone seems to think that the space between “Du” and “Bois” is a typo. It’s not.

Jam Session

Posted by rdub in Music

Ryan Joseph and I had our best jam session ever yesterday. We recorded the whole thing in my kitchen (imagine that). Most of the songs, in my opinion, sounded the best they’ve ever sounded. We’re both really excited about it. We even recorded a new original song, “Melt My Heart.” The lyrics and title are a bit experimental (both made up on the fly), but yea. Let us know if you like it.

Here’s the set list (click on each, and listen to the track):
1. Angel From Montgomery – John Prine
2. #41 – Dave Matthews Band
3. Steal My Kisses – Ben Harper
4. Flake – Jack Johnson (rough take)
5. Bartender – Dave Matthews Band
6. All Along the Watchtower – Bob Dylan
7. Melt My Heart – The Ryan’s (Original)

Alternatively, feel free to download the whole set at once with this link: Dec 06, 2007: Jam Session.

thanksgiving has gone from my favorite holiday to my least favorite.

This has easily been the worst thanksgiving vacation of my life.

I’m currently driving home after having been thrown out of my mom’s place.
