AHW MAH GAWD IT IS DEAD

My computer is dead. Well, the hard drive is, anyway.  (*Note: This is not my computer that I'm on right now)

One day I get up, see this big old hard drive error on my screen. I get to reinstall Windows XP and reformat it. Yay. :|

I KNEW I should have backed up that last digital commission I had on there. But alas, there it goes.  Sayonara.  I was in the process of restoring everything.  About a week or two later, hard drive is slow. So I think "hey, let me defrag it."  That would have worked if the computer hadn't surprise restarted itself...

Or maybe it wouldn't have.  It had an error the first time, it likely would have had one again.

Now, I have 3 options:

1) Because I can't install Windows XP on this big external hard drive I got (blah blah blah legal stuff), install Linux. :\

2) Sell big external hard drive, buy new internal hard drive (It's a laptop so it shouldn't be too outrageously priced and I can install it myself).

3) Do #1 while waiting for #2.  Format hard drive when sale is made.

HMMM...

I would do number 3. Linux is pretty awesome and it will keep you going for awhile. I am sorry to hear about that though :(
