Bwah! My computer has decided to die, right in the middle of my two weeks off work. This happens now and then, but I can usually manage to resuscitate it – this time? No dice 🙁
I’m currently accessing the Wyrmlog (and the net in general) via a Ubuntu live disc I had sitting around. This should at least let me backup some stuff before taking the box into the shop. But once I make that move, I’ll have no net access at all.
So if you need to contact me – phone. If you don’t know my phone number it’s 08 9…
No, I’m not that dumb :). If you don’t know my phone number you’ll just have to wait for my glorious return.
Whenever that may be. *sigh*
Aaaaaand after a weekend of my computer working (or at least working as well as it ever does) it decided to crap out on me this morning. Again.
I’ll run the startup repair process again tonight and see if that fixes it. It only took three hours last time…
I am happy to report that I’ve been able to get my PC to boot into Ubuntu via a live CD and am in the process of backing up all my important data to an external drive. This means that – hopefully this weekend – I’ll be able to drop the box into a repair shop for a complete overhaul without worrying about some clueless keyboard monkey accidentally formatting the hard drive.
(Cue the comments asking my why I don’t just install Ubuntu and be done with it. Hey, do I tell you how to run your life?)
(Oh, I do. Fair enough)
