Having somehow managing to completely muck up my desktop in the process of trying to remove some particularly nasty malware, I have finally been told that the blessed replacement is shipping. So… just as soon as I get it I can stop with this ad hoc, jury-rigged back-and-forth between the laptop and the netbook. Of course, I’m going to need to get all of my stored files – both the creative writing material and the game saves – out of the hard drive without infecting my new system, but one step at a time.
I should also probably buy both an external hard drive for the computer, and an external CD-ROM drive for the netbook. Suggestions?
PS: I also look forward to playing Dragon Age: Origins on a system that does not render it as being one step above stop-motion animation.
