Mostly, fighting with computers. Antares needs a new motherboard and cpu, I decided this morning, to handle the workload I expect of it. Also, I shouldn't be moving antares around by myself anymore, so I ordered a scissor-lift cart. Found one cheap on amazon. I'll shop motherboards later. Looks like I could do something acceptable for about $500 for the MB and CPUs around $300. Ouch.

Also trying to get my phone to sync with itunes properly. I think I have a corrupt mp3 somewhere messing things up.

Dinner w/ C&M&C&R.
Some conman.

Yow that's a lot of motherboard. Which cpu's? Xeons?

Yeah, it'd a pair of Xeon E5s. Could go as much at $3900/cpu if I wanted 18 cores each.

I guess I knew they were still pushing advanced cpu design somewhere, but it's a bit breathtaking to hear about it.
