Crazy upstate weather

It was 70F (~21C) today. National Weather Service seems to think we'll hit 80F (~27C) on Tuesday.

But just last week, in the wee hours of Saturday morning, April 6...

april snowings...

...bring april hot spells?

It's 58F (~14C) and raining right now. Beautiful weather :)

Welcome bixie, hatgnat and paladin3! Welcome to my crazy upstate weather :) I rarely am able to add back, but I do visit, and look forward to learning more about you, as well :)

I've been a posting fool of late-- today especially. And I've so much more to share (*cough*JaneTellerSIGGRAPHDragoncon*cough*). I may even catch up one day. Heh.

Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em and those who dance in April showers.

Sweet dreams, lj-land.

Geek question(s)

My new computer will have two IDE HDDs: master for OS and programs, slave for data. I'll be running WIN2K Pro for a Windows OS, and will likely try at least a couple flavours of Linux (and BeOS or FreeBSD, if I'm feeling ambitious, heh).

I'd like to keep the master for programs and the slave for data (and never the twain shall meet), unless someone can give a convincing argument to split them up.

I expect I'll use NTFS for the WIN2K partition (though using FAT32 wouldn't be a problem, if there's a reason not to bother with NTFS). But I'm not sure about the data disk.

What would be the best filesystem(s) for the data disk? (Of course, I'd like to be able to share data across platforms.)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. ^_^
(Remember, I'm old; talk slowly.) :P

Goodnight, and thank you.
