So I had a really crappy day yesterday. First off, I woke up at 8 a.m. despite not having class till 3p.m. I couldn't get back to sleep either, so it was not a good way to start the day. Next I went to go pick up my books from the bookstore, only to find out that not only was my order not ready, it didn't even exist. As far as the bookstore seemed to have been concerned I never ordered any books. I went back to my dorm and went online to check my transaction history for my credit union, which showed that I had made a 130$ transaction with the bookstore, and did indeed fill my order out.
I was annoyed, but didn't feel like going back to the bookstore yet since I would have to do so later that day anyways, so instead I fired up L4D2 to blow off some steam by blowing up some zombies. L4D2 crashed. In fact, it crashed my computer entirely. So I restarted, but the computer wouldn't start up. After reseating the memory and graphics card, as that usually solves problems, I fired it up again... and got a disk read error. "Well fuck," I thought. I didn't have a way to test my hard-drives in another computer at the time, so I figured I would basically just have to rely on my netbook for the day.
The rest of the day proceeded as normal, and I didn't get back to the bookstore like I thought I would.
Now today. I woke up at 11:00 today, which is when I actually wanted to wake up. I figured I would just go ahead and fire up my computer, doubting anything had changed if it was a disk-read error. Quite wrong, the computer appears to have fixed itself. One thing down.
I went to lunch, and afterward went down to the bookstore, prepared for a nice long battle with the clerk there. Instead she looked up my named, said my order was ready, and brought it out to me. I guess they just looked up the wrong name last time I went to pick them up, or something along those lines. Second problem solved, and as you can see, my problems solve themselves.
TL;DR - Life sucks, except mine.

Better backup your files, your HDD may be approaching the ends of its life time.

They are, I wasn't worried about losing files, just the annoyance of having to reinstall my OS and programs.
Can I have one of them?
