Long time

So I called MS tech support and turns out my problem was fixed in other cases by reinstalling. So I did, and now I have to reinstall about 10 hours of install programs again.. luckily I burned my Warcraft III savegames so I can keep on smitin'. Excellent. I bought another hard drive the other day and I'm going to set up a RAID array, I think. I've never done it and I wonder if I'll notice any improvement in performance.
I just got back from the lab about 45 minutes ago and I'm going to leave to return in about 10. My experiments are 9 hours long today, unfortunately. My boss told me that everyone's leaving the lab next year so I'll be the most senior person in the lab (or the 'boss', as he put it). He said that everything wrong in the lab will become my fault, but it would be worth it just to get my desk space moved from out of the UV transilluminator closet.

This new graphics card rocks. I almost need my glasses to read the text at 1280x1024 resolution. Well, I'm excited but I haven't reinstalled Norton so I'd better get offline before my computer curse hits.
