First, I got my computer back. Whoo!
But then, said computer was COMPLETELY wiped. I mean, I knew it was going to have lost stuff, but... I lost everything, almost. Pictures, especially. Pictures from cons and family vacations and things that I didn't have backups of. Doujinshi and fandom pics. All my icons. My music seems to be safe, but that leads us to bad thing #2- there seems to be something wrong with my sound drivers. I've had to reinstall them twice tonight. While sound is less essential than some things, I kind of like having the option.
I was able to salvage my bookmarks, but... that's about the one highlight right now. Well, that and it cost about half what I was expecting. While it's far from perfect, I still couldn't buy a new comp for what this repair cost. And then I'd have to deal with Vista.
So, anyway, flist, my day has averaged out pretty crappy. And I have no pretties to cheer me up.
