Well. That's that, then...

Spent a couple hours with the Product Recovery CD, and repaired my installation a little. Immediately notable effects: logging in to the ISP was near-instant, rather than a drag of about 8 minutes. Well, near-immediately notable. One also noticed that on immediate attempt to log in, the modem was not detected, and that an attempted joggling of cords brought about a memory dump and restart. But after that it was all good.


If this were a client's machine, I might have just gone for the easy and known good "Save all the files you care about to your backup here, and let's reinstall!" But I like my system, thanks much, as much as I am intending to reinstall soon.

Plus, it would have been a son of a bitch to save everything.


Am I really cut out for hacking?
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
