Larry is now rebranded Cranky Larry. Spent most of my evening recovering from a bad driver install. Admittedly that was partially my own fault. I sloppily picked the wrong driver for me Ethernet card. But I shouldn't need to be reinstalling the thing.
About a month-ish ago my wireless stopped working. I do not think it is a coincidence that this was also about the time I last had to re-install secure remote (which hacks your network settings), which bombed.
Spent almost an hour frantically backing up data from the C partition (OS partition) to the D partition (where data should be). Then spent about 3 more recovering my network connections.
