It makes very little sense but Im not going to complain.

Well today started out great.

Today was a ‘Bank holiday’ for NSW Banks and because I work in the Insurance industry I guess I got the day of as well. It makes very little sense but Im not going to complain.

All was going good until some time around 4:00pm I decided to run a program I hadnt worked on in a few weeks. The problem was it didnt work and not only did it not work it wouldnt go away and sat on 100% CPU.

So anyway I killed it. But the problem wasnt it, it was some other process it had spawned which was now running at 100% and owned by root.

So I logged on as root and not even thinking of the effects I kill -9ed it. At this point the kernel pretty much crashed. I had to hard reboot.

BIOS loaded. Grub tried to load. But failed. It failed with the Error: ‘error #17 cannot mount selected partition’. Great. Anyway, I pulled out my now trusty Live Distro SAM Linux and booted it. I went in to inspect my partitions all was fine. WTF? I inspected my grub.config. No issue there.

Then the magic happed. I shut down my PC (properly this time) and took out SAM and rebooted.

All was fine. It makes very little sense but Im not going to complain.
