So, my windows machine is back up and running. It now has two 120GB Seagate drives in a RAID-0. The windows install went very smoothly. Maybe a little too smoothly. It did do the old "can't find NTOSKRNL" joke a few times before I applied SP1. Now it seems good as new. For reference, this is up from one 40GB IBM drive, which was down from 2 40GB IBM drives in a RAID-0.
Yes, both IBM drives failed. What a horrible product line.
Besides my ill-fated powerpoint, the only thing I lost (I just realized) was all the stuff I was working on in Buzz Tracker. I didn't have much, except for a nearly complete remake of CV_TECH with string instruments from XS-1. Would have liked to finish that :(
I'm very excited about the new Deus Ex 2 demo coming out in the next couple of days. And also about Deus Ex 2 itself, but I already preordered that. Oh well, I have Knights of the Old Republic until then, which seems vaguely entertaining.
Man, how great is it to have time for computer games again!
