Had a tornado warning. Didn’t see a tornado, but saw plenty of high winds, and lost power two or three times. Took some pictures after the storm ended, to document the damage.
My computer wouldn’t boot again after the second outage, and the culprit turned out to be…. UUID! I hate UUID. I popped a Gutsy LiveCD in the tray and booted from that. Fixed my /boot/grub/menu.lst so that root=/dev/sdb3 instead of root=UUID=67732679-a241-4e4c-a86a-74320624f7c7 and then I was able to boot again, no problem. So now I’ve found two things (installing a second system, and power outages) that FUBAR the dreaded UUID system.
