Well, it seems like I may be back up at the home computer, but it was not without its devistation.

I had to re-install Windows XP and IE7 to get the system services back, and I'll have to do a bunch of updates now. Had to re-install the antivirus software and kill off a bunch of startup stuff. I'll have to re-install Spyware Doctor as well, or install something equivalent.

I'm betting I'll have to re-install a bunch of software as well. Some of it made it through the fire fine, or at least to all appearances it seems to be working.

The good news is that I didn't have to wipe and reinstall everything. At least not yet. I think that may be in the cards when I finally upgrade the processor though. And before that, I'm gonna add some more network storage so I can back up all of my wanna-keep stuff elsewhere.

Not fire as in flame, fire as in metaphor.

Had a crash during a virus scan. Needed to hard reboot, and it took out a bunch of system services.

Virus scans + Me not playing many games any more + Video / 3D work = Me probably going to Mac sooner rather than later.

About the only reason I'll stick with PC for the foreseeable future is my FXHome licenses are on it.
