my BSOD adventures… and lolcats!

9 01 2009

Yes, that’s right, a blue screen of death. Not just any blue screen of death, “The Blue Screen of Death!!!” Oh I am pissed, this is gonna be either very expensive, very annoying, very time consuming, or all of the above. I’ll go with the latter. Perfect!

It started out as just another normal Wednesday afternoon. The power was out for 12 hours. It came back on finally, right as I was getting ready for bed. I wanted to get online, check emails and messages, browse scandalous pictures, and maybe write another blog, the topic of which I have forgotten in my rage. Everything was working just fine when I clicked on the start menu and BAM! The blue screen of death….

Granted, my laptop is getting old, it’s been over three years now. It’s just sad to see it come to this. Today is not a good day. Everything is piling up it seems, right at the end! I hope to somehow recover this error, although it seems to be pretty costly. I don’t have any definite answers to go off of. A new windows xp disk will cost upwards of $100, personal hard drive recovery software around $140, and don’t even get me started on the cost of having it professionally recovered. I’d hate to spend the money on one of these only to find that it’s not the problem.

double trouble. lol cats rock!

Luckily, there was not too much important data on that hard drive, if that turns out to be the problem, as I store everything on an external drive. It just bothers me to have to re-do everything I set up on that computer. The damn thing makes it all the way through this deployment, until now. Seriously?

Two weeks left, Fuck it!

I decided to use lolcats today, because I was bored, and because they are awesome!

I want my computer back, it’s not the same without it. Things hadn’t been normal between us for a while, with that one awkward late night situation a few months ago, but I thought we got over it. I thought we moved on, and were cool. I said I was sorry, and you forgave me…. and now you do this!!

FUCK YOU COMPUTER! I don’t wanna play your games.

I leave Iraq in 12 days!
