coincidentally i bought some 3.5 discs [that came with a cool case, so i did overspend for two discs, but they were cool and transparent and peace-colored... i like shiny things...] and...
I COINCIDENTALLY BACKED UP MY SOURCE!!!
::sings: "one more time we're gonna celebrate, oh yeah, alright... don't stop the dancing"...::
well i don't have most recent code, but f5 was just options that i never figured out anyway... however i don't have my most recent journal... so that's just about the only problem...
:roceeds to make backups::
the moral of the story: make backups, make them often... hds die if you leave them unplugged for too long!!!
[this doesn't not mean my dilemma is completely resolved... just that i can write again...]
:roceeds to reinstall many things... including peace and harmony between the zeroes and ones...::
