In other news, I'm in love... Advanced LAN Pump. Beautiful application by some smart person in Russia. It does one thing - copies files from one machine to another across a network. Big deal, right? YES, indeed! It SHOWS you what's going on, % complete, transfer rate, etc... It has a separate task for each directory. IT LETS YOU RESUME IF INTERRUPTED. The only challenge is actually finding the damn thing - the home site's download link doesn't work. I ended up having to search all these sites that google returned before finding a working link from simtel.net.
I had been trying to clean my 400G RAID array on the editing machine by copying all non-editing files to the file server's 400G RAID. Windows fucked it up somewhere, so I had to START OVER. Fuck Windows and its featureless copy that always shows the wrong information and doesn't let you have any meaningful indication of what's going on.
I did the walk to the trash/mailbox, and them some basic home XR Size today. I'm trying to keep doing something every day, to get the doc off my back.
I made a pseudo-impulse purchase today. I ordered a new Pioneer 8x DVD burner. Fucker was like $160 shipped. I figure having that in my file server will be handy. Not that I have any 8x media, but... Being able to keep those files on the file server instead of having to move them to the editing machine every time I want to burn is a good thing. I'm trying to keep the editing machine just for editing, after all.
