Dell laptops go boom; SysAdmin day!

Dell laptop:

With a rather impressive picture - the entire battery compartment's gone. Time to run a system backup, and thank Paelimeo (the iBook) for staying alive so long.

And today, the last Friday of July, is System Administrator Appreciation Day! Whee!

Need to remember to go to Cabaret@WST either tonight or tomorrow, depending on time.

And then, there's the Reading from The Book of Genesis.
[http://www.yankeepotroast.org/archives/2006/07/a_reading_from.html]

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. The earth was without form, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And God said, “Let there be Sonic the Hedgehog.” And there was Sonic the Hedgehog. God saw Sonic the Hedgehog, and it was good. He totally loved it so much that he played it all night. Thus there was night. Morning followed. The first day. ....

WST: Cabaret

I liked the set the most, I think. It was spiffy and oddly shaped. As in, I couldn't really visualize how the two pieces folded inwards and fit together. I also liked the raised orchestra platform; although I don't know if that was due to the lack of a pit? ::shrugs::

BCC is nice, but large, and a tad bit hard to get into. Gods, I'm glad I didn't go there - morning traffic must suck terribly.

Uhmmm. ::to marbenais:: Heh, yeah, it's been a while since I've practiced scrying/tracking things down. XP Although it actually didn't cross my mind to try until you mentioned it.

Let's see. Other than that, the show had pretty girls and hot boys. The best songs, in terms of singing, was Married, and I Don't Care Much. The MC (Emcee) was good. Although, Herr Schultz, I think, has a better voice. Kinda reminds me of Barky..

The story itself wasn't spectacular. A bit slow for my liking, but eh, whatever.

Lights.. were normal - nothing special there. There was an odd point where three people were at the apron, and the was only the spotlight... on two of the three.

Sound... someone's mic occasionally vanished. Didn't remember who... wasn't too bad though - we usually hear a lot more sound issues.

Mmmm, the very end was kinda weird - people bowed, then... awkward silence, before the house lights... flickered on and then dimmed, then turned all the way on, and the orchestra started up again.

:: wonders if the Kit Kat Klub had anything relationship to the KKK....::
