I am so sick of stuff not working on my stupid computers. Now my secondary machine, the one I use for storage of music and old data I care about, is all frotzed. It won't boot at all, it says that one of NT's system files is missing or corrupt. And I can't repair or upgrade NT on it, apparently, because NT Setup can't even find any hard drives. I had to stop trying, because if I don't take a break I'll probably end up taking a pickaxe to the thing.

This is the direct result of a power outage of about three seconds, which happened last week, hot on the heels of a whole slew of DSL connection problems. Add in the perpetual file transfer failures of unknown cause, being forbidden to send email from my main address using anything but webmail, and the black cloud of haplessness surrounding tmbg.net for the past few months, and it all totals up to a very frustrating digital experience overall. I swear, the Amish lifestyle has never looked so appealing.

you can always hook the drive up to another system and see if you can at least recover the data from there. maybe use that to reinstall NT on the drive, too.

So far I've been trying to avoid hardware tinkering, as I don't have much experience with it. But maybe it's not as onerous as I'm expecting.

What I really need is to get the NT Setup CD to recognize my drives, so it can repair the installation. The BIOS knows they're there, and in DOS mode I can use the partitions on the master disk (but not the slave, which worries me). There has to be a way to get Setup to see them too. It needs drivers, but I don't know where to find the right ones. Hopefully today I can find out.

On the bright side, I figure that even if I can't get any of the files back, I'm still only looking at about 10-20% data loss, because of backups. But restoring from the backups will take several days, and does nothing to fix the server itself.

I am new here and I was wondering if you could tell me why my account keeps logging out? Is this normal?

Les prix de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier location[/url]ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle chute d’au moins 10% sur les douze prochains mois, suivi de nouveaux replis de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
Aprcs un premier repli de 3,1% en 2008, les prix de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier achat[/url] neuf pourraient accuser une nouvelle chute d’au moins 10% sur l’annee suivante. Et la reduction devrait se poursuivre les annיes suivantes si l’on se fie aux scיnario les plus pessimistes avancיs par la Fnaim.
D’aprcs une יtude publiיe ce matin, la Fיdיration nationale des agences [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url] rappelle en effet que la baisse s’est fortement accיlיrיe en fin d’annיe… Aprcs avoir enregistrי un recul de 2,9% au cours du 3cme trimestre, les prix des logements anciens se sont effondrיs de prcs de 6,5% au cours du seul 4cme trimestre de 2008.
La baisse des taux enclenchיe fin 2008 ne suffira donc pas r renverser la tendance et r relancer la demande r court terme. Plusieurs raisons r cela. Depuis quelques mois, les agences immobilieres constatent que les nיgociations sont de plus en plus tendues entre vendeurs et acheteurs. « Surtout, malgrי des taux qui repassent en dessous de la barre des 5%, il est r craindre que les banques ne desserrent pas facilement leurs conditions de crיdit dans les mois r venir. Pour l’heure, les exigences d’apport personnels restent toujours trcs strictes : autour de 10 r 20% en moyenne », observe Renי Pallincourt, prיsident de la Fיdיration nationale des agents immobiliers
Face r ce constat, la Fnaim prיfcre donc parier sur une stabilisation du marchי r horizon 2012. « Une nouvelle baisse d’au moins 10% est encore nיcessaire pour rיtablir la solvabilitי des mיnages et permettre de relancer le marchי [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier achat[/url] » note Renי Pallincourt. Compte tenu de l’יvolution incertaine de la crise יconomique, la Fיdיration s’avance meme, pour la premicre fois, r יvoquer de nouvelles baisses de prix au cours des prochaines annיes. La Fnaim anticipe ainsi un repli de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
