My PC went haywire last night, refusing to load. I found myself staring into a 'You Must Reinstall Windows' message, and only my boundless self-control kept me from doing an Al Capone on the CPU with a baseball bat. Damn it. And everything was running so well. I may have to accept the fact that I am running with a pretty old computer, and it may eventually stop running altogether. Certainly a brand-new PC is not impossible, but it will take time to save up for that. That's a 'project' class acquisition- easily on par with a new phone or a gaming console.
Anyway, I'll just reinstall and see what happens. If we crash a couple more times it may be time to put the old beige box to rest. Darn it.
