Another downtime

I begin to hate this hard disk. It got stuck once again, causing a several hour downtime. When it came back, the filesystem was partially corrupted. I fixed it. Then I realized that while fixing it, I got rid of a few files. Random config and data files disappeared. It took me some time to figure out what was missing. I recovered missing bits from original software packages and backups. It looks like it works fine now, but if you notice anything strange – please let me know.

My appologies for the inconvenience.


I am in the process of getting yellow slips for Olga and Maxim. Yup. No more pink slips. They are now wife and son of a Cypriot/European, which calls for a totally different paperwork.

So most of today’s morning was spent in getting all stamps and signatures. Although I didn’t know from where to start, it all went pretty good. Even with some papers missing (forgot to take marriage certificate with me) I still managed to get everything I needed. Good.

I’ve also booked air tickets for both Olga and Maxim. They are leaving to Moscow on the 9th of June, and we’ll see the rest of dates and destinations from there. One way ticket from Larnaca to Moscow came out much cheaper than I expected – 80 CYP a piece (charter).

Hopefully, their yellow slips will arrive before their departure. If they won’t – it’s not a big deal, as I’ll be able to take them with me, when I’ll go to Russia some time in July. But I’d still prefer to have all paperwork in order by 9th. We’ll see how it goes…
