My hard drive at work has just bit the big one, and I'm typing on the graphics computer in the next cubicle as our IT guy is configuring a new hard drive to install at my workstation. Fortunately, almost all my work data was saved to network drives (with the exception of some stuff that I needed to do in WordPerfect, which froze up every time I tried to open a file on a networked drive, and naturally the office no longer has that version of WP so I'm kinda screwed there). Unfortunately, it's been a long time since I'd thought to back up my Explorer "Favorites" folders, so they're gone too, and that was a lot of work-related stuff, including lots of links to stuff for my boss and his family. No way in hell am I going to be able to re-create it. Ah well, at least I've saved my blog links here... gotta go, the IT guy is now going to teach me Windows 2000 - yeeee!
