Added 2 new A* pages:Still slow--but only two more pages in this episode, so I really oughta finish tomorrow!|
Spent some time these past two days diagnosing and eventually reviving my parents' PC; it seems that it had a memory stick die, which also corrupted Windows--probably the registry--so it couldn't boot for not just one but two reasons! Neat. And then after I reinstalled Windows (if it was just the registry that was bad, maybe I could have restored that somehow short of reinstalling, even though Windows' repair process failed to...but eh), it couldn't connect to the Internet, because its not-plug-and-play USB DSL modem needed a driver file, located on the Internet. I guess this is standard PC tech repair, but I don't have to think about it for most of my life, so this was all very exciting, let me tell you!
