2010/01/30: Failure Of Common Sense? You ain't seen nothin' yet!
(Actually, more of a "failure of paying-attention-to-what-you'redoing, but.) So, for those of you not paying attention to my Twitter, not only did I stupidly get another virus, I accidentally ran a quick-format on my external hard drive (the one with everything important on it). Fortunately, there are tools to deal with this, and I've picked one which recovers directory structure.
In the past 5:41:24 it has recovered 9.20 out of 102 GB. I've gone back and adjusted the settings (unchecking stuff I don't need or can easily replace, i.e. stuff on Steam) so that what's left would now be less than 58 GB and started where I left off.
