I got tired of a program I was writing (and a minor headache), so... I turned my attention to something that's been on my todo list for ages. Tracking more and more of how the system handles it's startup procedures. It would certainly be a bit more helpful to my understandings, if I had ever had time to learn x86 assembly. Maybe someday, I'll get to that part of my todo list, lol but by then AMD64 will probably be old as a Pentium :\
Well after 0500 now, time to get some sleep.... Flibin' work early tomorrow, and another day of... annoyance.
