Okay, no more anime cons. You know the feeling you got when you first saw an overweight, pizza-faced youth dressed up as Inuyasha, complete with aluminum-foil sword? Yeah. There's a metric fuckload of them at otacons. Yeesh. I did pick up the crowning glory of my cel collection, a great shot of Belldandy in her racing uniform from the AMG movie. It's a happy thing. P got this tattooed on her shoulderblade, which took surprisingly little time and came out well. Chicago otherwise was pretty cool, our hotel was gorgeous, but it had it's problems. Most of all, $10 a day for net access, and their proxy is secure. I couldn't even get recursive DNS. I got a neato shirt, but that's about it. What sucks is that I came home to a RAID rebuild on my server, and the fact that my swap file is on the affected partition, the OS is locked up and I can't view progress. The event logs on my workstation say that RPC to the server started timing out at 8:30 tonight. It's one 9.1GB 80MB/s disk, it shouldn't be taking this long to rebuild. I knew I should have hooked up that fucking tape drive...
