The Trojan War

I lost a battle in the Trojan War last night.  It was to me what Gettysburg was to Pickett. 

I don't know how it happened, but I know it occurred after I accidentally unplugged my computer.  No big deal there, that's happened before.  Then I turned it back on and got about 500 alerts and warnings saying my hardrive was about to explode or something.  RAM memory was imploding.  Nothing was on my desktop.  "C:" was gone.  Ran my McAfee Total Protection anti-virus scan; it found four viruses and one trojan horse.  It was like watching a mute HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyessy:  "My mind is going, Dylan.  I can feel it.  I can feel it. I can feel it." 

But before it started singing "Daisy," I managed to recover the system that was auto-saved two days prior. In the end, I succeeding restoring everything but personal files, which were great in number and immeasurable in importance to me. 

At least I no longer need to de-fragment my computer, as there are no more fragments.  Of anything.

P.S. Unless you were ever so bored that you actually watched 2001: A Space Odyessy all the way to the end, you will have no idea what I am talking about.  So watch this.
