Sunday night was an experience as both of my hard drives had their master boot record and boot partitions corrupted. I had been trying to make a ghost image of Windows XP but the process messed up and nuked the drives. I’m still able to see the contents of the partitions so I can recover the data. It’ll just be a little while before I get it back to normal working order. Was pretty stressed about it but then….

Got bad news yesterday in work. A colleague of mine whom I’ve worked with for two years died over the weekend. He was well respected and had become a good friend over the past few weeks in work. Rest in peace Derek. You lived your days instead of counting the years.

    When you feel like looking at it, I don’t think the Dubin email support system works anymore (for the past month anyway)

    Trev: Very true man. He had a great send off in the crematorium as his band played one of the tunes he wrote.

    Peter: The helpdesk is working fine. You’ll receive a reply asap.
