Recently, my long-suffering external hard drive gave up the ghost and decided not to work. I took it to the computer guys who also keep the office machines happy and healthy, and had them take a look. Sadly, it was hosed. Utterly and completely. Nothing was recoverable, which sucks because I had several computers worth of data on there.

The good news was the drive from the previous computer, which had the motherboard go pfft, is functional. I got that set up in a case just now and am transferring everything of value, since I also signed up for Carbonite. Whew. Never again will I be that stupid as to only have one source of backup.

Lesson. Firmly. Learned.

I just bought a new computer on Wednesday (nice system too: quad core, 5 gigs of RAM, nVidia 9000 series card, etc) and this morning it didn't want to work. I think the power supply may be faulty. The computer wouldn't power on when I set it up on Thursday, but then did when I swapped power cords between the new and old machines and figured ok, bum cord, but this morning it was dead to the world and no amount of cord swapping or trying different outlets would work. And it's not the power strip either, since everything else plugged into it is working fine *knocks wood* Meh. Gonna take it back to the store later today and see if they can fix it there. *sighs* Ah well at least this machine still works *glares at it to make sure it will continue to work*

Going to go see the new batman movie too, so there's some fun...and if things go well computer-wise I might be able to salvage some online roleplay later tonight.

And, as always, dragons to click, view or ignore:
