Luckily, computers, unlike people, can be re-formatted when things go awry. So after some back-up hell (apparently NTFS filesystems are read-only for Macs, and Windows does not allow large partition to be formatted using FAT32), and a little over two hours of installation (I have Tiger installation discs and a Leopard update disk so it took longer), Nish is detoxified and squeaky clean. Of course now I have a bazillion gigabytes of software updates to download.
Wouldn't it be great if we can just reformat ourselves? We would still be the same person - computer specs don't change when we reformat, after all - but we get a fresh start again, and this time we know better. Like this time I will really try to stop fiddling with Nish's filesystem in search of system registries for downloaded games (and I don't need to because I already know how to crack them! hah!), and I won't install applications I won't really use, and I'll get my stuff organized and shiz.
Anyway, the truth is right now I am seriously seriously uninspired to work - I have lost all the willpower to excel, and to do more than what is expected of me, which, I would like to believe, is how I was before. There was always the "Well, I've done it, but I think it would be better if I did this too." Now it's just "I would like to get this done and over with." It's hard working with really low morale - whereas two years ago I get an adrenaline rush out of work; now it just drains all the energy from me. I wonder where I can get an installation disc for myself.
