I guess I don't need a root canal...

So it's been a while since I had tooth pain, funny how the dentists was quick to ask if I just wanted to get a root canal right then and there. I'm sure someone has made a conspiracy theory out of this.

:(


In other news I'm still getting my computer up to full recovery, installing things, drivers, games. Everything to have it like it was before. Maybe even without some junk that had accumulated over the years.

Turns out that crazy spyware/virus would not die, after one Windows reinstall the fucker was still kicking, I reinstalled XP again, but had a flash drive ready to do a full boot scan. Finally the motherbeyonder is gone. Had some issues with dual monitor wallpapers, one monitor was losing its wallpaper... after a lot of frustration I ditched the Nvidia Destop Manager, and got a nifty program called "Display Fusion" http://www.binaryfortress.com/ works great, has a small memory footprint, even the free version is full featured enough.

I'll go back to installing programs now.

Just out of habit, I keep all of my important installation and back-up discs on hand, including an "emergency" 8GB flash drive.

Either way, it's not bad practice to back up your files regularly just in case you have to reinstall the OS for any reason.

I haven't been to a dentist in 10 years, it's a scam!

Yeah, I'm glad it wasn't one of those viruses that completely takes over you computer, I had time to back up all my stuff in a secondary hard drive. That emergency flash drive is a good idea.
