when they say be careful doin something its a good idea to be careful lol

Ok now to explain thjat subject line lol. I finaly got everything except my modem to work and me being he nosy type, allways trying to find out how things work well i was playin around in the system tools and i did something and it asked if i was sure i wanted to do this. well i have seen similar things to this before and nothing has been too serious. wellllllllllllll it wiped out my hard drive. so i spent a good 3 hours trying to put windows back so i cld get online. if i had the right modem i wld just have installed mandrake in by itself. but thats not the point lol. this is basically a reminder than when the nice puter says be careful its a good idea to do just that. I came close to using my computer for target practice today. lol but tomorow is another day and i will more than likely reinstall mandrake and start allll over again
well i am gona go for now and take a bottle of ibuprofin for this headache i gave myself.
have a great day

Don't know about target practice, but I've wanted to use mine as an artificial reef from time to time....
