It has come as quite a surprise to me but after months of trying and getting frustrated with learning the Bass, a few sessions of Guitar Hero 2 with gerrowadat and a lengthy session of it last night while cartographer wasn't around to point and laugh and followthebird wasn't around to be overwhelmed by the sheer manliness of it all have led me to a point where I can manage to negotiate something beyond the very basic fundamentals of the real instrument.
So yeah, Guitar Hero 2 - a primer for the real thing. Also, I rocked out at Monkeywrench on medium difficulty, go me.

My discovery for today is that when you *need* to destroy a SATA drive and put it entirely beyond use, they're surprisingly resillient little beasties that can survive being flung against a wall several times, being bounced off the ground several more and being hammered with a rock. I think we managed it but there is a lump of tarmac in the car park that is evidence to how a disk drive can be used as a digging implement.

Lets end this day on a complete and total downer. This is the story of a man who is likely going to be executed for a crime he did not commit. The state knows he didn't commit it, the prosecution knows that he didn't commit it because the evidence used to convict him has been proven to be garbage but since he was found guilty in the original case and the trial was fair, it stands.
