My laptop crashed yesterday and did not allow me to say goodbye to my post-backup files in the data drive. Our IT guy recommended buying a new (and bigger-capacity) HDD. And guess what, while I was thinking of buying an external disk drive to supplement my 40G ibm disk space, it was suddenly granted - company paid. =) He called our officemate who's in Singapore right now (since it is much cheaper daw getting one over there), so I expect having the hardware by next week.
For now, I reformatted my old disk which I did for the second time in only 2 months. So far, nothing wierd has happened, and all I need to install are Windowa, Outlook, Anti-virus and a Web browser in order to survive until the weekend.
