I changed over the hard-drive of my primordial Acer (which I drag to work for the particularly-inert Saturday night "Sweet Spot" shifts) from Kubuntu to Crashbang Linux. It's a lovely little beast that comes with a lot of the nifty shit that you have to laboriously install on Ubuntu-family OS's already provided, plus it just looks fuckin' ultraboss.

The dark side to this happy tale?
In the process of puddling about with the Crunchbang .iso file I thought it'd be jolly horrorshow to add it to my main laptop as well ... & hilarity was NOT what ensued. My ineptitude with partitioning led to the sad scenario where my external HD got ganked via pissing about with RAID arrays & such sundry ugliness that inevitably transpires when you stubbornly insist on doing a full-bore DIY install, even though you know fucking well you're more or less a blithering nitwit in the realms of everything to do with actual hands-on Computer Science.
A 500 mother-loving gigabyte drive: pooched.
The grim reality:
Years of patient meticulous accretion of prurient libido-nutrients, all instantly & unknowingly gone, like adorable butt-naked sand through the hourglass of time. Needless to say I've been steadfastly gleaning what surviving residuum I can from my collection of thumb drives ... but the losses have been as heinous as they are sudden. Merely contemplating the net attrition of Ariel Rebel (gee, that could just possibly be NSFW) videos causes my Inner Child to speedload its Pampers with a vengeance ... & the lovely lady voted "Montreal's Most Sexy" is but one MIA among many.
How I know my OS rabies is dire is that ... despite my grief ...
LOL, I REGRET NOTHING.
PS: Because of Crashbang's defaults this here is my first ever post submitted on the sexeh Iceweasel browser.
