Murphy’s Law

I love this picture. You can find it on wikipedia for Murphy’s Law. I was supposed to be editing tonight.

Instead, I spent 2.87 hours trying to get my iwlan driver to stop flaking out, the process of which made me do several reboots, which then brought me to my 75-successive-mount limit for the partition, which therefore necessitated the fixing of an inode corruption on my laptop, which I addressed by booting to my intrepid ibex cd, opening up a term session, and running a privileged-user initiated filesystem check on the first partition of my /dev/sda device.

If the mere fact of reading the above description of my computer adventure makes your head hurt, then how do you think I feel?

Murphy’s Law. I want the law repealed.
