Okay.

I just reformatted my whole hard disk, got rid of Windows altogether, and installed Ubuntu as the sole operating system.

Staring at the Blue Screen of Geeky Diagnostics was not how I'd planned to spend my Saturday, but I'm back in business (knock on wood) as Sunday tiptoes in. I'm restoring about 20 gigabytes of My Documents right now. So far so good.

I hate computer problems, but I'll say this: deciding at 10:00 p.m. on a frustrating Saturday to just chuck the whole damn operating system (which, by the way, accounted for something like $200 of the cost of this computer...grrr...piece of crap...) had a damn-the-torpedoes feeling to it that was kind of exciting.

Thank goodness. This reminds me of your 'cleaning out' project in a way.

Funny you should mention that, because I almost put a Project Empty tag on this post. The experience feels very similar.
