Well [Jul. 3rd, 2010|03:14 pm]

My computer finally decided to put itself out of its misery yesterday. It died in the midst of several not-very-arduous tasks, and when I tried to boot it it couldn't find the disk. After I realized the problem wasn't going to be solved by me, I took it into the shop yesterday afternoon, where i discovered that the earliest I could potentially get it looked at was next Wednesday afternoon. That wasn't an exciting prospect, but what could I do? So, I'll let them take a look and see what the trouble is. Hopefully I haven't lost my data: there's a lot of stuff on there that I would rather not lose. And if anything is broken other than the HD, I'm probably going to just by a new computer: that one was showing its age, anyway.

But, in the meantime, having to entertain myself for an extended weekend without the internet? The horror! But then, I discovered that I did indeed have one of the world's best roommates. Genghis is going out of town for the weekend, and has graciously lent me his computer. The more I think about it, the more important I realize it is to me. I hope he can accept baked goods and an organized kitchen as an appropriate tribute.

1) Man, I wish my computer had just been unable to find the hard drive. That would have made things soo much easier to fix. And yeah, I eventually went with the "fuck it, I'm getting a new one" mentality as well. But in the meantime, this is the reason why I keep backup computers and my old laptop in working order.

2) You're rooming with Genghis? Like, BSFFA Genghis? That's pretty sweet.

1. I had been starting to consider the possibility of backing things up...which is to say, it wasn't going to happen until I bought a new computer, and in hindsight I of course should have been more careful.

2. Yes, yes, and yes it is.
