Labor Day plans

I’ll be out for a week, which is good because my personal laptop on Thursday crashed with a corrupted registry hive.

It’s funny. I always seem to come down with a cold or something when I finally take a break from work. This time I’ve got a sick computer.

After spending a few hours unsuccessfully mucking around with XP’s system recovery console, I figure I’ll need at least another day to make it right. There’s also a good chance I’ll kill it and need a few days to shop for a new one.

Then I’ll really need a vacation.
