Today at 12:15 PM, I booted my computer, played a little WoW, listened to iTunes, read ElJay and Facebook, did all the little thingydoodles one does on the Internets. Shut it down and went to the store to get soup ingredients. Got back home at, oh, 4:30 PM and tried to boot it up again.

"Windows could not start because the following files is missing or corrupt
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM"

...Huh. That can't be good.

Multiple repair attempts, a trip to Best Buy, and an XP reinstall later, and I have a functioning PC again. I attempted to set up my old HD as a slave drive, but no dice; I'm hoping it's just because I'm missing a particular cable. Keep your fingers crossed for me, I will be extremely sad if I lose all my personal files from the past 6 years or so.


I like being "handy" with my computer, but I wish it wasn't because it kept breaking. >:(

(Oh, and I did finally make the soup- french onion, made with local onions. I served it with mozzarella and lots of croutons. Very tasty!)
