RJ and I met Alan for a couple of drinks in The Museum Taven at lunch time. Came home via Treadwells and The Lyceum Tavern.
Just been running scandisk on the deaded HDD... Seems OK. Hmmm.
Good job this pc is working.
I can't find my XP bootdisks.
Need to switch this machine off now and retry the HDD in the main machine... This could be a long night.
