Public Service Announcement

Two words: back up. Back up your computer files. Back up your photos. Back up everything on your computer that is difficult or impossible to replace. Especially back up pictures of your young children when they were babies. Failure to do so could result in long lectures from your husband with suggestions on ways to save photos, all of which are obvious and easy to implement. All of which are also all that and more of what you have already been lecturing yourself.

Back up your computer. Your sanity, and marriage, may depend on it. This has been a public service announcement.

As me how i know.

As you may guess, our home computer has crashed. A .exe file is missing or corrupted. An apparently invaluable file, that is essential for Windows. Our only hope is to take the whole tower to geek squad and see if they can pry our pictures out of the hard drive with the virtual equivelent of a screwdriver.

Today, it is all about the system32\ntoskrnl.exe file.
