In other news, I bought a new power supply for Howler. It had been beeping randomly every once in a while--ever since I upgraded the motherboard--have I posted about that? see next paragraph--and I finally got it to do it once right after booting and was able to see in the BIOS monitor that the +3.3V was low (~2.9V). It looks stable now, and as a result I'm actually willing to use it, which means I'm finally burning CDs, namely, backing up all my data. And lo and behold, what do I find on one of the drives, but 600MB worth of photos, which appears to be all my photos from 2001 that I thought maybe I had lost in the Great Hard Drive Crash. I never did get around to searching through my CD-Rs for them, since I never had any real use for them, but yay.
Does anybody know of a good way to search for old posts on LJ? The best I've found is the 'view subjects' in calendar mode, except most of my posts don't have subjects. What I'd like is just to get all my posts from a given month or week inline (a la recent entries), but there doesn't seem to be any way to do that. Maybe I need to start adding meaningful subject lines to every post.
