The death of a good friend

RELAX! It's just my computer. My computer has been on it's last legs for the past, oh, 3 years. Every time it gets sick I usually manage to nurse it back to health. It seams to be dying on me, yet again. This morning it froze and refused to start again when I rebooted. ARG! Finally I got it running but only after I removed a hard drive and putzed with it a bit. That damn hardrive has been giving me problems since day one. Well not day one but about day 366. I have a lot of important stuff on the hardrive (including almost all of my digital pictures). And will be really pissed if I can't manage to recover it. I'm not going to preach backups cause I try to be as minimally hypocritical as possible and god knows I never backup stuff.

It's definitely time to buy a new computer. It's been time fro a while. But alas, no moolah. And also, I'm stubborn. That and I know that in two years I'm gonna buy a laptop for school (probably something like the one from this post). My computer is constantly getting taken apart. Just two weeks ago my burner died so I took it out and replaced it with and hold hardrive. My computer seems to have had more surgeries and upgrades then Joan Rivers.

Well I think that's enough complaining about my computer. I'll leave you all with a few cool links that I've found recently:

Planarity.net-a ridiculously addictive game
Konfabulator-some cool stuff for your desktop
Plague hits the cyber-world
