I've discovered that I'm terribly attached to my poor desktop, especially since I can't use it at the moment. =(
(On the husband's computer; he'll soon be home and kicking me off of it. Yay computer, boo, no files, therefore, little work gets done. Yes, I admit it; I don't backup enough.)
Basically, I'm looking at a corrupt install of Windows XP. I've spent a good five hours today trying to fix the computer. Now Chris is home and we're going to physically remove my hard drive, backup my, oh, 200 gb of files, and then attempt to resuscitate it with a repair install of XP. If that fails, then I need to do a clean install, which will suck.
Bear with me. This is not a good day on the technology front.
(I'm thankful I haven't lost power yet. My mom has been having hers go on and off all day.)
