One up, one down.

My hard drive ate itself last Tuesday. After two trips to repair shops (one of which didn’t seem to exist), it’s back and working. Finally, internet!

The downsides:
I had to wait a week for another 1TB drive. For 30 bucks more they offered to get me a Western Digital drive with a 5 year warranty, but I take issue with WD’s ram-eating smartware program (basically a parasite program they don’t tell you about on their backup drives). Turns out the one I got was a WD anyway.
It also turns out that my backup drive backs up files but not programs.

So it looks like most of my weekend will be spent downloading essential stuff (iTunes, plugins, and so forth) and trying to remember the shit-ton of sites I had bookmarked.
Fun times, for real.
