beachy

Well ... Crap.

My computer hard drive seems to have imploded, and my attempts to recover it may have erased all of the slave/external drives as well (blaps self). I'm going to try again in the morning, but right now it looks like a total loss.

My last large-scale backup was just before I installed XP on the machine, which was sometime late last year if I recall. So I'm not sure how much stuff I've lost, but some of it is significant and painful (particularly hi-res computer-colored images).

I don't know how long it's going to take me to get a system up and running again; I am also rather worried, given that my computer at work died in almost exactly the same manner earlier this week, that some file of mine or possibly a website I frequent both at home and at work may be spreading some new virus.

Or it may just be me. :P

I don't know if there will be SJ next week or not, at this rate.
