    Corrupt Folder

    My HD in my old computer went kaput so I had to replace it. No biggie, but now I want to see if I can pull any info off of it. I bought a HD/USB cable, hooked it up and can access the whole drive EXCEPT for the My Documents folder...which just so happens to be the folder I want to retrieve...

    Computer Problems

    Out of the blue, my wife's computer stopped booting, coming up with a "error loading operating system". Anyone know how to fix this? I tried reinstalling Win XP Pro, but get the same error. Any ideas? If not, I'll have to hit up the Geek Squad this weekend.

    I've done it...I've joined the Dark Brotherhood...

    That's right, I now have a Wii :) I had to buy a used one since I haven't been able to find a new one around here at all. I went out today and purchased the little doohickey that lets me connect to the internet with a wired connect. It's pretty neat so far. Anything I should know...

    Left Behind Games

    Looks like the game was FAR worse than even I thought it was... At its peak (Nov 7 of last year), Left Behind Games' stock price was $7.44 a share. Today, the price sits at 18 cents a share. Were these guys in a cocoon when they designed this game or what? According to the article...

    Selling my Xbox & GC...what should I ask for?

    Well the time has come to say goodbye to my Xbox and GC. I'm planning on getting a Wii for the family, though they're still hard to find at this point. I'm going to offer them as a package deal to friends and family first (that includes everyone here if you're interested), but I'm not sure...

    Do we really need Blue Laws?

    On my drive home today, I heard this story on NPR: Do we really need these Blue Laws? Are they outdated, meant for a time that has since passed? Do you have any laws like this where you live? I'm not THAT old, but I...

    Help me find something...

    Let's go back in time...several Christmases ago. There I am, walkinging through Walmart, when I see the coolest Christmas thing ever. A line of eight or so elves, each holding a bell and a hammer. The unit selected a song at random and the elves would hammer out the tune. Unfortunately...
