It's a Sunday and I'm posting from home. AWWW YEAH! M came over Friday night after work (and minor bribery in the form of chips, a swirl and soft tacos at Rio Grande) and after hours of head-scratching and DOS for dummies, we managed to save enough of my critical documents - read pictures and music - to comfortably reinstall Windows and embark on a weekend of software CD plugging.
Knoppix rules and people who create viruses just need to be beaten. That's all I have to say on the matter.
