Outages and Dual Heads

I've been scanned repeatedly in the past 24 hours for an open proxy... it's starting to get rather annoying. I even had someone poking at my telnet port this morning. Sheesh.

Also had a power outage this morning...well, more of a voltage drop. The lights started flickering while I was in the shower...which was rather annoying, because I had to jump out and go unplug deneb to prevent its power supply from shitting itself.

Unfortunately, it just so happens that my landlady is the one who pays the electric bill... so I don't even have the account number. Meh.

nVidia makes some pretty decent hardware. :)
