Calm, Happy Thoughts. So my spouse kindly swaps out the video card in the system upstairs, thinking that it would help the monitor problems. And does something else, something mysterious, "to keep the system from overheating."
Well, gosh darned if I didn't get a good half hour of work in before I tried to save it. And gosh darned if the f^#*@^% thing didn't lock up. And double gosh darned if it wasn't locked up when I sat down. And triple gosh darned if my kindly spouse didn't mention a word of it on his way out the door this afternoon. Well, gosh darn me for not trying to back up right away then, eh?
