Survived Christmas...

Well Xmas is over, finally. We spent a quiet day at home and I do mean QUIET. My computer crashed on Christmas Eve so we made a mad dash to Best Buy to get a new hard drive. Drove 20 miles or so to get one, come home, find out it's the wrong type. Get in truck. Drive 20 miles back to Best Buy to exchange it for right kind. Finally get home and as I try to partion and format the drive, I forget the most important thing. You have to reboot completely after you partion!! Yea, yea, I know, dumb me. Took me three days of figuring with the dang thing to finally dawn on me, DOH! After that, it was a snap. Got the new 250GB hard drive installed with the OS. Moved files over from my second drive, reformatted that one. Then I got this brilliant idea. Let's reformat the old drive, if possible, and use it for the second drive. Now that I remembered HOW to do it, that was a snap. I now have 400GB of drive space on here between two fixed drives. How cool is that? I'm so proud of myself for fixing it by myself. FDISK and FORMAT are not two things a novice should ever mess it. Computer classes seemed to have paid off, eh? Happy Late Merry Christmas!
