Good:
It was my Nonna's birthday, so we went over for dinner last night. Stuffed ourselves with heaps of food including fresh home-made pasta, crumbed cutlets, and an alcohol-soaked cake. There was also Tia Maria, which - when served on milk and ice - was sufficiently non-objectionable that it now sits at the top of my least-disgusting alcoholic drinks list. Not that I had much; I'm a bit of an ultra-cadbury, and I was driving. It was also amusing to see my uncle (and to a lesser degree my mum and Nonna) slightly drunk.

Bad:
At work, I've been given the task of upgrading software on a windows 2000 server. Only trouble is, I'm a unix administrator. :P Management's logic behind this is that this particular software is controlled from the command line and is therefore unix-like. *facepalms* I wonder what they'll say if I mentioned the 'NET START foo' and 'NET STOP foo' commands that can be used to start/stop windows' own services...

Ugly:
Having hardware issues with my home PC at the moment. I paid precisely $0 for the mobo, CPU and RAM, so I can't really complain. But it's a bit disturbing that the machine is mostly happy when I run the RAM at 133MHz (besides the random segfaults and occasional data corruption), but when I drop it to 100MHz memtest86 stops complaining, but my xserver no long starts up (hangs, eats 100% CPU, unkillable). Go figure.
