The hard drive in my work laptop is in the process of dying. That is to say, it has died (bluescreen: kernel inpage error) but has occasionally spun up enough to boot Windows.

Just long enough for the backup software to load and start a backup, not long enough for the backup to finish.

On the bright side, Support has sent me a new drive, and it's an 80GB: a 20GB upgrade from what I had. So I should have enough space now for some of the virtual machines I've been meaning to create.

Unfortunately, I still haven't finished installing my software on the new image (so far going on 4 hours of work). The only reason I have email is because OWA actually works through Firefox on Linux. Whoda thunk?
