Things you see at 4:00 am

Like many of my friends I work nights and thus I have the misfortune of being awake for a lot more hours than most people and get time to think and write accodingly. These are just reflections on the curent state of everything I have an opinion about.

3 hard drives in a year

Tomorrow I have to go buy the third hard drive for my computer in about a year. For some reason the boot sector keeps going bad can anyone explain what might keep causing this problem so I know what to do to avoid it?

Naming your guns

James at hellinahandbasket made a post about how people in the age of chivalry named their swords and mentions how the habit has more or less died with guns, but mentions that some people still do. Well I am one of them The Spanish Mauser I mentioned in my previous post belonged to James before he made a gift of it to me and before James owned it it belonged to his good friend Charles Parish. This is a fire arm to be cherished, while any historical value was diminished when a sporter stock was used to replace the original I know what Charles meant to James and for him to give me something that belonged to Charles showed me how much our friendship meant to him. This gun has a lot of significance so I couldn't help myself I had to name it so it became El Ocho. Yes I know I am just saying the eight but for some reason it just fits a bare bones name for a bare bones gun.

A lot's been happening

A good deal of things have happened since I last posted. Basically I got married and that took up a good deal of the last 3 months or so. I received two new fire arms as wedding gifts from my good friends James and Bob. They gave me a Mossberg model 88 12 gauge for home defense and a Spanish mauser 98k chambered in 8mm with a sporter stock, for hunting purposes. Work has been work etc. Otherwise I really haven't had time to do much else.
