sooooo my secondary drive died.
It had all my photos on it, a lot of my music (the vast majority of it, including all the things I've recently spent vast amounts of time downloading from karl's FTP), and some other programmy things I didn't want to lose.

Ah well.
At least everything else seems to be working now that I took it out (thank you Karl for the technical advice) and I suppose at some point I can try to get the information off of it.
Of course, a big chunk of the pictures are porn, so I won't be taking it into my local compUSA...

And I will cease to talk about it in my house now because my father keeps saying like "you can buy another D Drive and transfer the information from this D Drive to that D Drive..." because he seems to think that you can go into a store and pick up a "D Drive" off the shelf... like that's what it's named. And I just don't have the strength to explain that it doesn't work that way.

This is the man who didn't understand that a zip file did not become "bigger" when you "unzipped it" and try as I might with all the briefcase analogies I could come up ... he just never understood and ended up getting pissed at me for it.

bleh.

but hey, everything works.
Think I'll leave the case open so later I can blow out the 4 months worth of dust and shit.

What is it with fathers and computers? My father is always somehow fucking up his computer and talking about tech stuff like he knows that he is talking about. This is a man that defrags his hard drive whenever the smallest error occurs on his computer. Today he told me he signed up for hotmail and wouldn't believe me when I told him it was crap. He'll believe me once he recieves the first 1000 viagra and teen porn spammails.

Thank you for the opportunity to vent.

I had gotten a virus and was trying to explain to my father why I was screaming at the computer. I thought he had understood what I said until I woke up the next morning to find a band-aid on my monitor.

Actually, that's something I might do... of course, I'm like that.
