Crash n’ Burn!
Fighting through a major computer crash. Everything was running far too good to just leave it alone. So, like an idiot, I downloaded and installed Yahoo Intellesync yesterday so I could access my Palm schedule online. The program overwrote several files critical to Windows and cut off my cable modem connection (I’m posting this entry via the dialup connection that we keep on my wife’s computer as a backup) and my computer has been a trash heap ever since. Windows won’t even re-install itself. I think I’m going to have to do a low-level fixed disk re-format which means I’ll lose all my data. The icing on the cake is that I have no backup. It’s going to be a long fight back up.
I hereby damn Yahoo and all it’s manifestations to Hell. I will no longer be using Yahoo Messenger or any other Yahoo service that I can reasonably avoid. I will also be deleting the Appliantology group as soon as I am able. I will re-direct all email to my hotmail account and my Yahoo mailbox will soon cease to exist. I will curse them with every breath. May Yahoo find itself being slowly squeezed to death by its more worthy competitors, AOL and MSN. May a thousand viruses and DoS attacks infest their servers so they can have a taste of the extreme hassle they’ve caused me. Die, Yahoo! Die!
