I was able to borrow an IBM ThinkPad T23 body from a coworker finally. I swapped in my HD, and booted it up. And lo, there was amsu, same software environment, slightly different body. I did a quick run thru Gnus, then kicked off the network backups, and so now have a nice fresh snapshot (a blowfish encrypted compressed tarball) safely tucked away in the deep bowls of a corporate storage pool.

It was a little tough to have to shut it all back down and return the hardware to it's owner. I hope the one I just bought on eBay doesnt take too long to get to me. But I know that I can just swap drives and come right up, and then this will be a good opportunity to install Fedora Core 3 on the new HD.

Perforce is down at work. But I was planning on ducking out early anyway. It's fish friday, and this time with more guests and more company. :)
