Troubles with Microsoft
Yes, it's everyone's favorite time of year... or month... or week... It's Microsoft OS reinstallation time! For reasons that are... you guessed it... Microsoft's fault! Installed a bad Windows Update download that effectively gutted my video driver. That's what I get for staying up to date. So I'm ditching my copy of XP (good riddance!) and reinstalling 2K Pro, which, to the best of my knowledge, is bulletproof. Thank god.
Thankfully, no code was harmed in the incident--CVS is a lifesaver. Unfortunately, I make it my personal goal not to commit VC++ project files to CVS (it's not code and it doesn't DIFF very well). So those will have to be rebuilt, and I'll have to redo all my cute little tricks, defines, project settings, and things like having the VC environment build and edit my QuakeC. Oh well. All good things must come to a... reinstall.
