    Default might not be on tomorrow (3rd)

    hey chums, hope you all had a good new year!

    Just letting you know that on the 31st my laptop power cable adaptor thingy stopped working - even after i poked it and made it spark!
    Ordered a new one and even now it's winging it's way to me - unfortunatley new year got in the way so i'm not sure when it will arrive.

    If it doesn't come by tomorrow, please raid as normal (assuming we have the numbers).

    Hopeing i'll definitely be back on by monday, and to see everyone then

    Akee

    There is some sort of conspiracy against the raid leaders!

    Awesome numbers are looking a little low so I am sure that you can organise a Awesome/Win collaboration if neither has a full team.

    I will probably be around at invite time so should be able to put something together.

    Just shove some wires into the toaster and then into the hole on the laptop and push the toaster down, i'm sure it'll work!

    I will wait for you with baited breath... Always <3

    Looks like the hardware gremlins have affected me too. Last night Windows would not start and the grinding noise seems to point to a hard disk failure. I'll need to poke around inside to disconnect the faulty drive. If it's a drive with the OS it's a complete rebuild but if I'm lucky it's one of the other drives and I will be able to recover.

    Looks like I was lucky and it was the backup drive that failed so it wasn't a rebuild after all. This does mean that the c:\ disk is the oldest now and more likely to fail so I am going to put a new 2TB drive in and transfer the c:\ to it then use the old drive as a backup drive. Should all be done over the weekend.
