As many of you know, several days ago, I was the victim of a nasty computer failure. And as you may have read, $90 worth of parts seemed to correct the mishap.

But apparently, my fourth annual computer failure was to be a special one.

This year, shortly after replacing a series of catasrophically failing components, my hard drive decided that it, like Charles, was due for retirement. In spectacular form, the drive's read / write heads developed a glitch, and began etching lovely creases, rips, and tears. Google "sounds of hard drive failure" if you're interested in experiencing the symphony of audio goodness which I was treated to.

Fortunately, no data was lost this time. I'd already perfomed a copious backup of my system following the last episode, and after a trip to Staples and eight hours of agonizing setup, I was the proud owner of a brand spanking new SATA II drive.

In other words, I'm back.

Let's just keep our fingers crossed that an asteroid doesn't decide to 'upgrade' my house next.

Welcome back Ben. I HATE it when computers decide to go "tits up" on me, so I know your pain.

Pleased to see you've returned smile.gif

Well... I can only imagine the hilarity of filing the insurance claim.

Agent: "Generic Insurance Co. You wish to file a claim?"
Yes: "Yes, an asteroid destroyed my home."
Agent: "A what?"
You: "An asteroid."
Agent: "An asteroid? Sir, we only take serious calls."
You: "Yes, I'm being serious here, an asteroid blew my house up."
Agent: "Sir, your policy does not cover planetary assaults, alien invasion or asteroids."
You: "Uhh, it's not my fault."
Agent: "You do know you chose where your home is located correct?"
You: "....."
Agent: "Sir?"
You: "....."
Agent: "Sir? Sir, are you there?"
