Next year is Philadelphia which the SCQueen has wanted to visit anyway. Look for us there!
Instead I'm home playing PC repairman. The SCQueen's PC gave a sudden last gasp today and now it won't boot. Some of the best advice ever, may have been from the notebooks of Lazarus Long, was "Make sure she has her own desk and KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF". Today this translates to "Make sure she has her own computer and etc..."
She was thinking she has a virus. Could be, but I took the drive out and ran virus scan on the drive from another suspected clean machine [do we ever really know?] Nothing found.
My first guess was a bad power supply. Fortunately I had one in stock. No dice. Tomorrow we'll try a new processor (also in stock) and failing that, a different motherboard (also instock).
Update: Swapping the motherboard fixed the problem and she's back up and running. But I can't get the genuine windows validator to run and it seems awfully slow...
