Oh Twitter, you're the devil...

After changing to "New Twitter", I thought the torture was over.

My tweets came in as usual and everything went just fine.

But it seems the phrase "Never change a running system" never reached twitter.

I logged in as usual. Then I saw this message, telling me "This is your homepage, HackingHoradrim" and that I should follow someone. (I follow 200+)

Alright. I supposed it's a side-effect from the new Tweetdeck acquisition and I just had to reload.
Nope, nothing. Friends I asked didn't had a problem.

~ One hour later, tada, works fine. Don't know what it was, but sucked hard.
My 2 cents.

What a beautiful morning....

From time to time it's a good idea to update && upgrade your system.
In my case, it's Debian Lenny.

So, what did i do ?
Updated && upgraded && dist-upgraded via APT, changed the lenny parts to squeeze in /etc/apt/sources.list
Then updated && upgraded, aptitude install apt dpkg aptitude
cat /etc/debian_version gave me a clear 6.0.1

Everything fine?
No sir.

Rebooted and... my system started beeping every other second + flashed the screen like above.

Solution? I put away that machine and i'm using another right now. No time to fix and to be honest:

Maybe i should reinstall it, after years of just upgrading.


Now i took some time to get that problem fixed.
Reboot, Single user, aptitude update & upgrade.
Took another ~40 minutes but was worth it. System up and fine =)
