Well, I have my new comp, and all my files but my music libraries made it. The music is rebuildable (even if work), so.

The new comp has a bunch of shiny features, which are... cool, if not necessarily Actually Useful. Though I suspect once I get used to its existance, I'll appreciate having a numpad again. The scrollpad is making me a bit hissy for now, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to love the added functionality on it once I get used to it. (It zooms like a touch screen, and also it's huge.) The audio jack is unified i/o, so I'm probably going to need a splitter for that one.

I'm still in the process of tweaking everything Just So. The rule of "if I don't remember it, it wasn't just important" is going to apply. Firefox is mostly sorted out, as is the desktop whatsapp client and antivirus, but other programs still need find-and-install.

Guess who had her comp's harddrive throw up a catastrophic failure, and her backups are out of date?

...yeah.

And risk assessment indicates buying a new comp over just getting a diff drive installed.

I'm not happy about any of this.
