For those interested in my computer problems, I couldn’t get WindowsXP to boot back up at all. I didn’t want to lose my data, so I borrowed another hard drive, installed and formatted it, installed XP on it and now I can read my old drive. I was able to back up everything I originally forgot to back up (MP3s, some large downloads, etc), too. I’m going to wait to set up everything properly until this weekend, so I don’t completely kill my brain with sleep deprivation.
See you tonight.
