Due to a number of problems I'd been having recently, I wound up wiping his brains out and restoring him back to square one. This means before Novell, and even before Office Depot.
Unfortunately, I was unable to back up RO before I did this.
Downloading RO has always been a pain in the ass, and this time has proved no exception to the rule. My first attempt failed after about seven or eight hours. My second attempt "succeeded" after seven hours, forty-two minutes, and twenty seconds. It was only a success in that I managed to download all 700 MB, and not a success that enabled me to install RO. The file turned out to be corrupted and useless.
... last night I had a dream that I was playing a TaruTaru on FFXI.
