Welcome

I'm Laura. I am female, 31, a gamer, a bookworm, a knitter, a spinner, a tatter, pierced, tattooed, musical, vehemently geeky and occasionally ineptly artistic.

Hi!

Mac OSX cannot apparently recognize partitions that it did not create, or that are in other filesystems than the basics - HFS+ (proprietary, and irritatingly so), NTFS, FAT. Awesome. This means getting rid of the handful of ext3 partitions that I put on my laptop has been nontrivial and eventually required the complete removal of all partitions, the re-creation of one big new one via the commandline provided with the restore CDs because the installer is dumber than a box of rocks, and the re-installation of OSX. (Actually kinda happy about that last one. I liked Tiger a hell of a lot better than whatever the latest one is.)

Apple, I AM NOT PLEASED WITH YOU. You're Unix-based, please start acting like it.

Started a toe-up sock class last night. I'm using Mini Mochi, which is gorgeously dyed and feels divine but is a pain to knit with. It's basically a thickly spun single, and as such it splits like mad.

Picking Matt up at the airport tonight. Have to get the laptop back in working order by tomorrow night. Cardinals game tomorrow (versus the Mets - whee).

Good luck with the socks =). Two at a time toe-ups take a lot of time, but if it's just one at a time, they fly by.

Have fun!
