So my weekend was spent backing up the Franken-computer at home so I could reformat and reinstall Windows to see if it would help with some performance issues I was having. Not sure it helped with performance, but I got rid of a lot of crap collecting on the system.
Took most of Saturday and a good chunk of Sunday to get all the essential software installed off CD or downloaded, along with moving a few things back and forth between drives so the backup files weren't fragmented into a billion pieces (and thus causing everything else to fragment into more chunks on that drive).
Still have a few things that need to be re-installed, and stuff from the PDA that needs to be restored to the computer. Should have the computer back to a usable state after today.
