If I had hair I'd be pulling it out. . .

This post is being made from the "Dj Laptop" thanks to Patrick for letting me borrow it again, otherwise I'd be WITHOUT A FUCKING COMPUTER!!!! The Quantum Atlas 10K II drive which is my OS drive decided to take a dump last night, was surfing the web, the machine locked up and I heard the drive come screeching, no, grinding, no, it kind of just wimpered and spun down, and it now spins up but my SCSI card can't recognize that there is an drive there, well, it recognizes the drive is there but it won't read it.

I RMA'd the drive to Maxtor this morning and they are shipping me a replacement. Really NOT looking forward tot he re-install. :( Jerry, I feel your pain.

oh shit! I hope you some recent backups... If you need any basic disks (photoshop, firewall, virus, winxx, etc...) for setup let me know i'll burn some up.

you won't know pain until you have to call me to get your new password.

then you'll know pain!

i'm about a quarter of the way through the rebuild process now. have to finish the OS install, get it updated, then have a ton of things to set up and configure before i can drop it on the net. getting closer, though. slowly, but surely.

the machine's going to be slower, though. didn't have any more fast drives left, and have a very slow old 5gb drive in there now :(
