How often do you reboot your primary computer?

steeljaw Re:Hibernation is glitchy (596 comments)

Right, so when I'm ready to pack up what do I do, play 99 bottles until my mac decides it's ready to hibernate?

Replacing New Hampshire's Old Man of the Mountain

steeljaw Re:Leave the rubble alone (162 comments)

I lived in NH for about 15 years and took many trips to Franconia Notch (which is amazingly beautiful) in my time, and I agree with your statement. What made this thing special was the fact that it occurred in nature. Honestly, it didn't really bother me that much that it fell, but it would probably bother me if they artificially remade it.. Natural wonders are neat in that they occur naturally...

Asus Ships Eee PCs With Malware

steeljaw Re:How did they... (124 comments)

Shipped it with an 80G hard drive. After you remove all the pre-installed bloat you could have about 10G for whatever you see fit!

I'm Tired

steeljaw steeljaw writes  |  more than 6 years ago

It's almost 5AM and I can't sleep.. I went to bed at 1AM and woke up around 3AM, now I'm stuck watching The Science Channel, which thankfully does not turn into the "how to make millions on eBay" channel after 2AM.. I wonder if there are any studies related to people who work in IT and their shitty sleeping schedules? Being on call 24hrs a day means that it's nearly impossible for me to follow any decent sleeping regiment, and I would not be surprised to find that there are many people out there in this same predicament..
