About a week after I posted that everything was fine and dandy with Provo, I discovered that was not that the case at all. My slave drive, Pillar, ended up being the culprit. My friend took it out and we both went back to the place I had my computer built. I told the customer service people there that the hard drive suffered from failure, and they gave me a new one with no drama.
Today, my friend installed it in the computer, and I decided to name the bugger DFMA = Don’t Fail Me Arsehole!
Really, if I have one more computer issue, I will seriously suffer from an aneurysm and curse the all mighty deities of whatever religion to the Andromeda galaxy and make them stay there.
Actually, I really hope I don’t have any more problems. The computer dudes told me that if this hard drive gives me problem, then I should lug Provo the Monster back to them. Ugh. I hope it doesn’t come to that point!
