The drive gave up the ghost about a week ago; maybe the "phrik kee noo" pepper (translation: "spicy sh*t of mouse") chilified electrons in the Thai electricity was just too much for it after 4 years of constant guzzling.

Two days later, after the usual tearing of hair and clothing, in states ranging from paresthesia to paranoia, a 1 terabyte WD Blue was installed, Win 10 installed, and ... you know what comes next ...

The excruciatingly tedious tribulations of restoring, reinstalling, reregistering, driver downloads, Win update after update, sucking the backup honey down from various clouds.

Lost some good stuff, including parts of a code library for geometry functions I intended to publish here ... darnit; just after i had coded for finding the foci and perimeter (using a Ramanujan approximation) of ellipses. Contents of GDrive partially bolloxed, some OneDrive stuff transmogrified into hexadecimal teratomas.

I hear what you are thinking: in my defense, let me say I was about to do my weekly full image backup.

Here's a strange thing: after all this foofaraw, suddenly, when using Skype, the built-in laptop camera now renders my ugly mug in full color, instead of fifty shades of gray.

May you be ever free from such afflictions !

cheers, Bill
