Computers suck

So, my secondary hard drive went tits up (SMART monitor on the motherboard says it's hosed, and Windows says, "you have a D drive?") Saturday, with no warning. Now, Windows won't boot at all, even with the D drive disconnected. I have used the Ultimate Boot CD to do what I can, and copied some files from the NTFS-formatted D drive to an old FAT32-formatted drive with Knoppix (good thing I keep weird shit around, eh?).

Now, I've got a 20-foot ethernet cable strung across the living room to my computer so I can use Knoppix (which doesn't recognize my POS WiFi card), so I can attempt to do some homework (darned online classes have pitfalls after all).

This is fun. And not at all paranthetical.
