My new computer arrived today.  Hubbie is setting it up as I type.  He found a sweet deal on a Dell that was special ordered, but never shipped because, for whatever reason, the buyer flaked out at the last minute.  I now have 600 gigs of download power,  a far cry from the paltry 200 I've been working with for the past couple of years.

It is made of win.  And it arrived just in time.  It seems I downloaded a Vundo virus from somewhere and its been particularly hard to remove.  Now, I can just transfer my data files and leave the virus behind.

Yikes, too bad about the virus! I just ordered a new computer myself, from Dell. My old one completely died out on me. I couldn't even salvage anything from it, since it won't boot up. I'm hoping whatever I've got coming my way will be awesome enough to outweigh the bill! ;)

OMG! That is my worst nightmare. I have spent years downloading anime and manga that if I lost, I would probably never get back. There are some hard to find things in there that I spent many long hours scouring the internet for back when I had the time to do so. Plus, all my stories.

I hope you can somehow salvage from the old one. If you take your old harddrive and put it into the secondary port in the new computer, you should be able to get to your files. That is, unless the drive itself is busted. Good luck!
