    1. forgot my diigo password

      So, I read that Diigo is doing interesting things. It's been awhile since I was there, so I thought I'd go check them out again. Except, I forgot my password. Looking around on the site, it seems like there's just no way to get a password reminder or reset.

      Then, I finally look at this thing:

      Huh. At first glance, I thought that was some weird viral thing to get other people to sign up for Diigo. But finally I notice the tiny, tiny "Close" button and try it. Ah hah!

      Now I'm waiting for the email. That was kind of odd and annoying.

    1. time machine is letting me down

      I installed Mac OS X Leopard back in November, and up until the end of January I'd been getting reliable backups from Time Machine. At that point, for some reason, it stopped working silently and I found out about it with a message dialog 10 days later. Coincidentally, shortly thereafter I needed to completely restore from backup. So, 10 days in the past was better than nothing, and that restore worked.

      Since then, though, I can't seem to get Time Machine working again after the restore. I've tried via AFP network share, I've tried with a drive hooked straight up to the machine, I've wiped all existing backups and tried starting with a fresh drive—basically I feel like I've tried every combination afforded by the black box, and it always seems to fail partway through.

      Today, this is the cherry on top:
