Break Even

Friday evening after dinner, Lisa asked me to clone one of her hard drives. While that was running, we went down to the Fernley Nugget casino and Lisa played slots for a while. We came within sixty cents of triggering a bonus coupon that would have gotten us an extra $10 free play, but close isn't good enough. However, we left with the same amount of money as we started with, and had a bit of entertainment along the way (and a couple of free drinks). Alas, when we got home, we found that the clone had failed, so the rest of the evening was spent trying to troubleshoot the issue, without success. The source drive works, but something about it causes the cloning software to choke. Darn.
