Finally used my brain..

…woo hoo. A small part of it anyway. Windows Vista allows you to do a full system backup, like you would get on a restore CD when you buy a computer, except this has all of your shit in it. My DVD burner is in the HTPC, so I save this one to it’s own hard drive, figuring that if my system goes down, at least one of the hard drives will continue to function. It doesn’t let you exclude stuff (like my 50 gigs of music) so it’s pretty damn big anyway. It would probably take about 25 DVDs to back up. I really need to get some of the 8 gig DVDs to start backing my system up to.

As often as I do something stupid to my system, it will be nice to just restore it without having to go through the reinstall of all of my apps.

Still feel like shit today. I have a nasty cough and my lungs burn. Damn I wish I could stay in bed, but no, I have to go to work where I can potentially infect several hundred people with the Creeping Crud.
