Yesterday when I got home all I saw on my screen was the standard "Failed to
find Harddrive 0 No boot device found Press F1 to retry or F2 to enter setup"
(something like that you get the point) and all I heard was CLICK, CLICK, CLICK,
..., CLICK. My hard drive had failed. Just great!! Luckily most of my data
was stored on my file server so I didn't lose everything. Just my email for the
past few months (so if you have emailed me in the last couple days an
are expecting a reply please kindly resend your message) and my
programing settings. I used to actually setup my profile to run from my server
but I got lazy the last time I installed my system. Needless to say I won't make
that mistake this time.
I looked up my warranty for my Dell system and it just expired last month,
well crap. So for the time being I transfered the files from a secondary drive
in my server and I'm using it for now. So I'm mostly backup and running now with
a few exceptions.
I was putting off installing .NET Framework 2 beta 2 because I had to go
through the pain of doing all the uninstalls but now since I have a fresh system
I figured I would go ahead and install it along with C# Express
Beta 2. Of course that would prevent Run++ from running, because it was built
running .NET Framework 2 Beta 1. I opened up my project in C# Express
Beta 2, which worked fine and I must say I like it better so far.
However the project no longer compiles. Once I got some references straightened
out I only had 2 errors and 98 warnings to go. Most of the warnings are things
that are becoming obsolete, including a bunch of stuff that was just added in
Beta 1, go figure. At any rate I'm working on getting Run++ up and running on .NET Framework 2
beta 2. I will post more about my transition from beta 1 to beta 2 after I
finish the process.
Also as I have mentioned in previous posts I have started running as
non-admin on my machine, but there are a lot more problems to deal with when you
have a fresh install verses an already installed machine. Right now I'm trying
to work out an issue with an application that is failing to register a dll
Fun, Fun, Fun!
