One more link, and then I’m really gone…

Here’s one for all you Stargate: SG1 fans…

SGC Dailing Program

I came across it when I was trying to find a screensaver that looked like the computer screens in the SGC when the gate is idle. The link above is the closest I found, and you can prevent random incoming wormholes by hitting the PGDWN key while the gate is inactive, effectively making it a screensaver (which you have to launch manually)

Kind of neat, even if the download is a pain in the a**

What exactly is a "Tape Monkey" anyway?

The official title for my position is: “Data Restoration Processor”

Basically, my job is to restore data from DLT Backup tapes, and get it ready to be processed. (How’s that for a redundant description?)

Being one of the new hires, I get the Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon from 05:00 to 16:00 shift. Which is going to wreack havoc on my circadian rhythm, not to mention the fact that I won’t be able to spend as much time with Jenny.

This situation should only last for a month or so, at which point I can (hopefully) get put on a different shift.

I went to work Tuesday to get set up with building and network access, and to start learning the processes I’ll be using. I’ve also been trying to adjust to a new sleeping schedule. We’ll see how that goes for real tomorrow morning when my alarm goes off at 4:00am.


(Looks like it’s about time to get dinner ready for Jenny, and then off to bed.)

can’t remember the last time he had a 20:00 bedtime
