I gave up smoking many months ago, but this is one of those times when I really wish I had a cig.

My computer has gotten further along the backup process this time, and hasn’t crashed yet, but I’m chewing on my fingernails hoping that this situation continues. Currently, it’s estimating the job at about 4 hours. I have a somewhat slower but still acceptably fast Wintel desktop that I just fixed a few days ago that I can use instead.. although the focus on the monitor is nowhere near as good as the laptop – I wish that my super-hyper-excessive video card had a DVI port..

I may have to go computer-parts-shopping this afternoon. I’m really unhappy about this – I really didn’t need this today. The question is, do I deal with blurry video that will hurt my eyes, or do I go buy a fix?
