Ridicully - verbal voyeur extraordinaire

Exactly where do I find the bright side of life so that I can look at it?

Lachesis (the desktop) decided to find most of my pictures with their original names again on the last reboot. Less sorting = good.

Finding these files apparently broke the camel's back. Win XP decided that killing itself would be the best way out.

Kind of positive:
It doesn't appear to be the result of any virus or something like it. Just regular Windows shitting itself after running more or less 24/7 for about 10 months.

"Thank the heavens and everyone that will listen" good:
I don't keep any data on the same drive as the OS. And additionally I regularly back up everything but pictures on the portable HD and a DVD.

Fucking annoying:
Having to reinstall XP and all the essential programs.

I'm not ignoring comments and eMail, I'm just kind of busy getting the (usually) more reliable computer back online.
