 My brain is mush. Restoring the hard drive and software is still underway. However, system images are the best backups - one stop backup of files and software.  I am using Macrium Reflect - the free version. Grab it folks and start making a weekly backup to an external hard drive and your fear of hard drive death will diminish.

My new hard drive is fucking with me however. After install, it failed the Short Drive test. Then passed. Then failed. Then passed.  The computer's extended service warranty expires in a few days, but the hard drive is warranted for another 30 days. So I will keep using Macrium Reflect to make system images.

The tech was helpful, also blew out 3 years worth of computer dust with my compressed air. To my horror, he gets rated on the entire service experience  - from the moment I made the call to the support center to him installing  the hard drive.  And if he gets anything less than a 9 out of 10, his supervisors will call me to find out why.  Since he did a good job I gave him 10, but the initial phone calls t the support center were not as good. 

Did I say my mind is mush.....

Dr Who started up again on BBC and I like the new companion.

From Dreamwidth's recent post:

".... I'd like to take a moment and ask: if you're able to (and only if you're able!), please consider donating to the Russian LGBT Network/Российская ЛГБТ-сеть. They not only do excellent work across the Russian Federation, but are currently mobilizing to help evacuate LGBT people in Chechnya who are in danger of detention or death. (EDIT: If you're outside Russia, you can donate through All Out; the Russian LGBT Network website won't accept donations from outside Russia.)

To our friends in Russia who are LGBT and those who are against the mistreatment of anyone because of their sexual orientation: We stand with you. Please stay safe above all else, but if it would be safe for you to post that link, the LGBT Network is asking that as many people as possible publicly share the information that the LGBT Network is ready to help. (They also ask that you do not contact people in Chechnya directly to let them know, as there are reports the authorities are searching people's phones and computers for evidence of sexual orientation.)"
