A quick take…

my wife’s old computer did indeed just die.  Hard drive crash.  My loving cat (Felicity, see picture in previous post) may have contributed, since it had one missing “foot”–the little plastic thing that either cushions shock or more likely comes off, thus contributing to “blunt force trauma”.  However, she was nowhere near at the time.  The monitor started bitching about its setting.  I finally investigated enough to conclusively establish that it was the hard drive and not the monitor.  Fortunately, the operating system was only contained on the hard drive (in a separate partition).  Yes, I do sometimes have the habit of sarcasm.

I’m also giving Pogo (a new browser, beta only) a try, and it’s even passing on this site, which IE 8 didn’t.  Whether or not I’ll like it remains to be seen.  Right now I mourn the computer, or something.  F*.  Loss of a new toy.
