It's all part of my "Anger Management" scheme to back off, especially if 
overt violence would serve no useful purpose (ie: useful anger is 
getting worked up and red-faced to start a flooded lawnmower). Otherwise 
I'd smack it with a ten-pound hammer, in John Henry fashion.

I just tried my Maxtor 200 gig SATA drive on this crappo hardware pile 
and the board refused to beep. SOB, I hope I didn't brick the damn drive 
too when the MB gave out. Anyone know how to get a Maxtor drive's little 
pc board replaced?? If I could tolerate alcohol, I'd get smashed. Way 
too much PC-woes drama lately for my short fuse. :) Ric
