Machine_Check_Exception

Heh.

The one thing I really didn't need to see this morning was a blue screen with the words...

Physical Memory Dump Complete

...when I was checking blogs and submitting a comment.

Now I believe I'm facked, and not in a good boom-chikka-boom-way, but in an "Oh My God, I've Lost All My Files" sort of way.

I suspect one of the pc guys was fiddling with my machine last night. Either way, I'm gonna be kickin' ass today to get a new computer.

Please leave good juju, mojo, chants, and charms that I can back up my files before all hell breaks loose. "...complete hardware failure" my lily white butt....

[sigh] ... This is why backups should be a proactive action, not a reactive one.

Speaking as a "pc-guy"....

Good luck, Mona!

I learned my lesson on backing things up the hard, sad way.

Chanting for your new computer.

Gah!!!

Boy, it does sound bad, doesn't it? But then, to me, the completely tech-impared person, it all sounds bad.

I'll send all the good karma thoughts I can, for all the good it'll do. Actually, how about if I send good 'spanking new computer' thoughts?

Jay: Thanks, man!

Gordo: Our overnight computer operator's nightly processes are supposed to include backups. I say "supposed to". Yeah. Sometimes the guy forgets. For a long time.

Meno: Our home computer crashed hard a while ago and we thought we lost years worth of photos we'd never backed up. I bawled my eyes out til Sergei found 'em. Now I'm compulsive about it. 'Cause I never know when I'll need that photo of my butt I took to see just how big it really is.

Diana: I'll take the spanking! Er...I meant to say...the spanking new computer. (Hello, Dr. Freud?)

Blue screens on computers are such an ugly sight. funny how just a simple color in a given situation can turn your stomach...

new computer, new computer, inordinately large screen to go with it, inordinately large screen to go with it, new computer, new computer...

'Complete hardware failure' and your 'lily white butt' on the same line! That sounds naughty.

Mark my words, computers will be the death of us all!
