"I bet nothing hurts you, Conan." "Only pain."

Whee. I spent most of this weekend dealing with a computer crash, with my Windows XP Desktop. After many hours of work, I managed to get all my important files off it (which is lucky, or I would have had to jump off a bridge). Tomorrow I'll have to bring it in somewhere to see if a "professional" can repair the damaged operating system, so I can avoid 40 hours of software re-installation this week.

"How did it happen?" you might ask. "Disk failure? Virus?"

Nope. Upgrade.

I tell you, the sooner I get off this windows garbage, the better. What I wouldn't give for a hot-swappable XP / OSX dual core macbook. Do you hear me, Santa? Make it happen. At least by '08.

In happier news, a bunch of our friends from H-town visited us in ATX this weekend, which was really nice. We went and had yummy fries at Jo's and saw Gnappy kick ass at the Elephant Room.

Good times. Almost good enough to make me not cry about the fact that "Services.exe has unexpectedly terminated".
