When a USB Stick Goes To The Underworld

A much beloved USB key went read-only today...

opti ~ $ sudo fsck -n /dev/sdb1
fsck from util-linux 2.27.1
fsck.fat 3.0.28 (2015-05-16)
0x41: Dirty bit is set. Fs was not properly unmounted and some data may be corrupt.
 Automatically removing dirty bit.
Leaving filesystem unchanged.

opti ~ $ sudo fsck.vfat -v -a -w /dev/sdb1
fsck.fat 3.0.28 (2015-05-16)
Checking we can access the last sector of the filesystem
0x41: Dirty bit is set. Fs was not properly unmounted and some data may be corrupt.
 Automatically removing dirty bit.
Write 512 bytes at 0:Operation not permitted

Lucky me I have backups I guess... Although, so far, the info on the USB key is still available.

At last!
Dinner last night with the GF... A veggie asado of sorts...
We wanted to have our meat, our asado, for quite sometime since she got back from her 42 days long European Tour, but the weather was against us...
It rained the last couple of weeks...
At last a sunny (wayyyy wayyyyy sunny actually) Saturday!!!

Currently Reading

And (actually enjoying like a monkey):

The Years Of Salt And Rice

I've already read another Kim Stanly Robinson book, the famous Mars one, but it was a really long, long time ago.
Right after finishing the one on Intel and getting ready for the vacation!
This one seems interesting, although I hate historic books, the alternate history ingredient makes it cool enough.
Sometimes it drags a bit, but then jumps to another chapter and thins speed of right away.
I'm about 30% read, will see how it goes.

Dinner with the GF, on Sunday night...
We wolfed down this magnificent specimen (it might look like baby's vomit on the picture, but it was beyond amazing).

Movies During The Weekend

Not many movies this time...

The Girl On The Train
Fell asleep more than a couple of times during the projection.
The GF liked it I got confused from the get go with all the blond cast... A chick flick thriller of a drunken train voyeur passenger that gets her ass wooped.

The Man In The High Castle
Watched the first episode with the GF.
Pretty, pretty, pretty good, I must say.
Read the original book many years ago (I can't hardly remember it) but the Amazon/ TV adaptation looks really nice, the art direction and production design looks amazing.

An amazing dinner with the GF!
Nearly rare meat with barbaric potatoes.

  • The sweetest most cool looking and tasting colita de cuadril.
  • Potatoes cooked with their own skin.
  • Ice cream (with a banana) for a much welcomed dessert.

Back To Reading!!!!!!

Fuck in Hell!!
I haven't posted anything about books in quite a while, more than quite a while actually.... Like in an eternity...
It looks like the last time I posted any shit about what I was reading I was about  finishing Back To Blood, on June 2016 [!!!!!!]
Since then I was somehow buried by work, and with really little time (or in the mood, specially during those eternal 41 days) for reading lately.
But, I've managed to finally finish The Intel Trinity.
It was mighty entertaining.

My Bloody Valentine

What a better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than eating like vampire/ werewolf caveman with the love of your live?
Pizza, pineapple pizza that is, you MF! :p
Ice cream for dessert.
(Sorry, no pictures this time, we were starving by the time we finally eat...)
And on to put a cherry on top an amazing documentary were freedom wins (Chuck Norris vs Communism)!
One fine day I might say.
Only sh*t thing, I'm fighting a slight flu, the worst thing about summer, is having a damn flu in the dead center of it... Fucking summer, it can't never end too soon...

Movies During The Weekend

Yeah, baby, yeah!!!
A lot of movies during this last weekend, the way it should always be!

  • The Accountant
Cool, but sometimes too slow, or maybe I was really tired.
Morpheus grabbed me a couple of times during this one...

  • Hacksaw Ridge
Pretty good, but way too long, the consensus with the GF is that it is, at least, 30 minutes longer than it should.

  • Manhunter
Pretty, pretty, pretty good.
And, BTW, I can't stop listening to the movie's soundtrack on Spotify.

  • Urge
A huge, stinky piece of shit.
Avoid at all costs.

Most def she is back.
Here is a little sample of our weekend's culinary delights.
The lower picture looks like a Chewbacca vomit, but it was actually delicious.
  • Milanesa a la Napolitana
  • Amazing Potatoes (believe you me!!!)
  • Sorrentinos (not from our usual source)

PBS Galore!

A lot, and I really mean a lot, of work this god damn week.
Nevertheless, I made time to somehow watch three docs, two of those from PBS thru the little Roku that still delivers.

The Race Underground
An American Experience doc, it was good, but then again, while telling the background of the main story, it sort drifts away for quite a while... IMHO it might have been fantastic, if the doc were a bit longer.

Oklahoma City
Another American Experience doc, this one is longer than "The Race Underground", so, all the necessary background info, and the time it takes to develop that story, pays off in the end.
Really good doc.

Gimme Danger
The story of The Stooges, as told by none other than Jim Jarmusch.
Mighty good stock footage, Iggy is sort of a blonde walkin' ruin.

Kernel Crud Delete Mode for Sojourner

Close to 1 GB of old kernel stuff...
Down the drain, yes... Bye!
This time even got a warning that the /boot partition was about to burn down in flames due to lack of space.

Movies During The Weekend

Did I mention the GF is back from her European Tour? Oh! I did?
After 42 days? So,... I mentioned that also?
Boy Oh Boy, I'm getting old... :p
So, after all that time, this weekend we had some time to watch a couple of movies... Gloria Excelsior!

  • Train To Busan
Yeah, you guessed it... The GF picked this one...
Although I have to say, it was good, but Morpheus grab me a couple of times... But, then again, like I said, I'm an old fart, I'm entitled to fell sleep during a zombie outbreak movie or what?

  • Arrival
In this case, the GF went a completely different route... She actually choose to sleep thru the whole movie, and instructed her twisted marvelous mind to wake her up during the thickest, most important plot turn on that mindfuck movie, just to mock me "so you just watch over an hour of this?"...
You gotta love her.

Actually, she is back!!!
And they are back!
The world famous GF BarBQ Chicken Breasts with Potatoes on the side.
Yes, the GF is finally here, so, no questions asked, celebrations were in order...
And I'm hapy to say that we lived to the occasion.
Life is good.

In The Words Of The Immortal Ric Ocasek

Tonight She Comes.
At last!!!
The GF comes back, believe it or not, she does come back... After frightfully 42 days, straight cold turkey, dude; the longer we've been away from each other since we started dating on November 2nd 2014, but, yeah, you know... Who's counting right?
I'll be damned if I didn't miss & love that little sweet woman...
Who needs a drink?
