Today, one of the hard disks in my work computer decided to take a dump. It's the only SCSI drive on the system. And now, even with that drive removed, the machine refuses to boot, since apparently the NTDETECT program is hanging because it can't find that drive, even though I have the BIOS set to boot off the IDE C:\ drive. *shrug*

Anyone have a spare SCSI drive they would be willing to lend me for a few minutes to see if I can get the machine to boot? LOL!

So, it looks like I will be working off my work laptop until I go to Chicago at the end of the month. Hopefully, there isn't anything too critical on my desktop that I can't work without... I don't think so. I'm in the process of FTPing some work files down to the laptop from the network across the VPN, which is somewhat painfully slow, but necessary.

I am spoiled... I will miss the dual-monitor setup and speed of my work desktop. I am spoiled... I have both a desktop and laptop for work.

Hmm... maybe I should just look into getting a docking station and larger monitor for my laptop... and an external enclosure for the other IDE drive. That would certainly make things a little more portable.

On the plus side, though, that's one less computer that's running in my office, so there will be that much less heat being generated.
