Comics, Computers, Breaking Bad, Dream

I got some work done on some comics today doing layout on the scripts to deliver to artists.  So I’m feeling like something good is happening with my idea of pushing up my content creation level.

I moved a bunch of my files off my external hard drive on to my laptop for using it easier for a lot of things.

I ordered a replacement hard drive for my music computer.  I’m a bit paranoid about it dying since the drive on my other laptop died.

I just found out that next season is supposed to be the final season of Breaking Bad.  Though it’s one of my favorite shows, I’m pretty happy with the idea of it ending before it starts to lose its credibility.

Last Night’s Dream:
I’m laying in bed with my ex-girlfriend & she’s telling me that we should get back together, but it will be a few months or maybe a year before it can happen – that the man she married & had a baby with has a terminal disease & that’s the whole reason she married him, out of pity.  I love this woman & loving her has been a big piece of my definition of self for more than twenty years.  There’s a 100% chance she’s lying to me & a 50-50 chance she’s lying to herself (I’d say she’s a pragmatic liar more so than a pathological liar).  I’d be better off dead than letting this woman in my life again.

    Hey Brian, after my old HD died I installed GSmartControl to determine the health of the new one from time to time. It doesn’t run in the background nor it has any sort of autorun or whatever, so it does not consume system resources.
    It’s also free application (GNU GPL), check it out:


  2. I probably should get something like that. To be honest I never really think to scan a drive unless something squirrelly is happening. I suppose I should do it as routine maintenance.

    It doesn’t need any scans to check drive’s health, Brian. It simply reads S.M.A.R.T. data from your HD – just in case, check S.M.A.R.T. on Wikipedia.

    When you open the program, it immediately collect all the info about your HD’s health.
    If you move the mouse over a value it shows a balloon tip with its meaning.
    It can also do drive scans (quick or complete) on demand if something wrong is shown from the S.M.A.R.T. data analysis, but that’s not the program main purpose nor the normal routine.

    It doesn’t even add any registry key to Windows – so you can uninstall it completely without issues.
    It’s a safe application – The only problem I ever heard is about using GSmartControl with Samsung F4 EcoGreen drives (HD204UI, HD204UI/Z4, HD204UI/UZ4, HD155UI, HD155UI/Z4, HD155UI/UZ4):
