Topic: I hate computers!
Well, not really, but I hate computer hardware. 10 years ago, computers hardware just worked. The problem back then was software. These days, the situation is the reverse. Software works most of the time, but computer hardware fails all the time.
The reason for my rant is that my main harddrive failed the other day. Thankfully, I had a fairly recent backup. Anyway, I went out and bought a new harddrive and that worked for a few hours. Then the drive just started disappearing on and off. Sometimes, when I boot into Windows, it's there, but then after an hour, it just vanishes. Sometimes it isn't even there when I boot. I've checked the cables and connections and I don't think that's the problem. To make a long story short, I get fed up with this crap and ordered some new hardware. My current setup sounds like a 747 during take-off anyway, so I figured what the hell. I probably won't get all the parts until sometime next week though.
