What I did on my holidays^H^H^H^H^H^H Monday evening. 
7th-Sep-2010 11:43 am
hot
there was an old man who replaced a drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who replaced a motherboard
it had started to error and it wasn't the cord
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who bought some ram
the old was too slow; he shouted 'damn'
he got the ram to go with the board
it had started to error and it wasn't the cord
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who replaced the cpu
it wasn't just the ram it was the cpu too
he got the ram to go with the board
it had started to error and it wasn't the cord
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who had to buy a powersupplier
the old one was old, it didn't have the right wire
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who had to compile a new driver
the new board had a network card whose version was higher
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man whose compiler had upgraded
it no longer worked with the kernel ; that version had dated
he needed the compiler to make a new driver
the new board had a network card whose version was higher
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who unpacked a new kernel source
it was fortunate he had it, but the config had changed; of course
he needed the source to work with the compiler
he needed the compiler to make a new driver
the new board had a network card whose version was higher
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who found an old network card
to get the onboard working was proving too hard
he had to to get back to the source
and hunt through the config of course
he needed the compiler to make different driver
this network card came from another supplier
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who went back to the kernel
the card would not work, it was probably infernal
he went through the kernel to make new selections
even adding in the experimental suggestions
he needed the driver to work with an old network card
to get the onboard working was proving too hard
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who rebooted again
the machine started up; the onboard worked then
he'd gone all through the kernel to make new selections
it must've been one of the experimental suggestions
the network was working, both internal and external
the end was coming to the upgrade eternal
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who went through each service
starting them up, some made him nervous
the network was working, both internal and external
the end was coming to the upgrade eternal
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who fixed the permissions
when he'd made backups there'd been some omissions
he fixed the permissions to repair each service
starting them up he'd been oh so nervous
the network was working, both internal and external
the end was coming to the upgrade eternal
he bought the powersupply, the ram and cpu too
to go with the board that seemed to be through
he replaced the board to fix the drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.

there was an old man who stared at the screen
everything was working; it was half past three

LOL!

As you can see, my time is well spent :)

Heh, very clever.
*hugs*
Also, I'm very glad to have my internets back. (:

Well done on all counts! Now if I put the kettle on, would you come over to our house and do the same for me? :P

mmm, no :) I gave up being a sysadmin for a reason. Programming is much less full of fear.

Oh well, I tried :P

Silence! :)
this wasn't an upgrade, it was a "oh noes! hda dying!" sort of thing.

These days, I just go buy a new one to start with. Any hardware old enough to be dying is replaceable with a $500 brand new machine. Also, then you have emergency extras.
