I've been busy at work, and neglecting to update this page. I'm taking over the tech service desk, which is daunting, but flattering considering how new I am at the company. I've been collecting data recovery tools and utilities, as well as every flavour of boot disk to make my life easier. I'll post a good list of my essentials when I have the chance to play around a bit more with them. Knoppix 3.7 is definitely there - that and a 2.5" notebook harddrive enclosure for hooking up laptop HDs when the laptop won't start. Mine arrives by UPS any day now.
For those of you with xboxes, go here
and get a free replacement xbox. Could save yourself from a housefire, and why not get Microsoft to courier you something on their dime?
Tip of the day: if you want better service in retail, brush your teeth.
