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**
Light Sets the Molecular Controls of Circadian Rhythm
Since I don’t have light blocking curtains, I’ve been borrowing one of my wife’s sleep masks.
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
