Oh my computer

17 Jan

book

It’s giving me more grief.

It began just before Christmas, when Windows announced at boot up that the profile was corrupt and was not recoverable.  I reboot and choose the last known good setting at start up.  It’s been okay since then, but this morning it did it again.

I can’t afford a new desktop at this time, I guess I’ll just have to deal with it until next month when I can get a new one.  It’s especially bad considering I have to renew the plates for my car at the end of this month.  Fortunately, my GST cheque came in.

For those not in the know, GST/HST Cheques are refunds from the federal and provincial government for having to pay… the GST, which is a tax on goods and services.  There was a large uproar when it was implemented over 20 years ago.

At any rate, I just hope my desktop can survive long enough until I can get a new one.  Fortunately, I don’t need to do backups, because I’m crazy paranoid about backing up anything I do on my system.  The one thing I don’t look forward to is re-installing everything.

  • Guild Wars 1
  • Guild Wars 2
  • Champions Online
  • Star Trek Online
  • Neverwinter Nights 1
  • Neverwinter Nights 2
  • RayDream Suite 5.5
  • Creative Suite (maybe it’s time to move from v3)
  • yWriter
  • AutoREALM
  • MobiPocket Reader and Creator
  • Printer drivers
  • camera software
  • Blackberry software
  • Thunderbird
  • Chrome

Which will actually be a good number of programs and games I use.

Yeah, I still go back and play NWN from time to time
