Well, isn't this a kick in the nuts.

On Monday, I had loaned my aunt my USB drive because she needed to store a PowerPoint presentation for a class. After the class, she returned it to me and I popped it into my laptop to move some of my stuff on. I noticed some funky files on the drive folder when it opened, and before I knew it my laptop was going six levels of crazy. I yanked the thing out of there and, in a moment of poor judgment, popped it into the family desktop to quickly format the drive before anything else could happen. Too late.

I had just infected both computers.

I fired up the recovery console on the desktop because it got hit the worst. I managed to save all our files, but it would take a while to reinstall everything else and tweak the settings to our specifications. It was almost 2 AM and I had work in the morning. I took my laptop with me and tooled with it during the downtime despite being chewed off by my supervisor for bringing it along. I thought I was making progress, but alas. My laptop fell. I would have to reformat it.

I had spent the next couple of days after work restoring the desktop. Today, my day off, I spent practically all morning and afternoon reformatting and reinstalling drivers on my laptop. I'm thankful that I regularly backup my data to an external hard drive, but this shit is just so time consuming! My God!

The whole situation completely bummed me out. You just don't want to have to put up with this kind of mess. I had planned on writing up another couple of blogs, but they had been pushed aside to work on the computer mess. I finished up the desktop and have only restored my laptop enough to work on these recaps. I still got a bunch to do. I was supposed to put up a new Off-Brand Games piece up, but I don't think that's happening. Maybe tomorrow, if I'm lucky.

With that off my chest, let's get down to business. I'm feelin'... hmm... Don Bluth-y today.
