So I brought my computer to have the HDD’s exchanged (Yeah, yeah, I’m stupid when it comes to this shit, don’t need to tell me) 2 weeks ago.
My HDD was dying. You know when it’s a cold winter day, you try turning the car engine on and it makes sort of like a wheezing kinda sound as it tries to turn on? Well, that’s the sound my HDD was doing on a daily basis. Not constantly, mind you.
So I bought two new HDDs, one as my main drive & one to be my data drive. Big ups to the Rusky Russian_Gear for finding me the hard drives. Russians are good for some things, I suppose.
I tell him, “Put drive 1 as the main drive, put drive 2 as the slave drive. Remove the old one but don’t throw it out. Install Windows XP and an anti-virus.” and he tells me okay, no problem.
The guy is a friend of my dad, so he does it for free, which is cool of him.
Only problem was… It took him from Thursday two weeks ago to Saturday the 8th to do that.
But whatever, I got my comp back, I’m happy.
As I’m about to open it up, my dad tells me, “Yeah sorry, the reason it took so long was because it took something like 6 six hours to copy everything on the new drive.”
But I didn’t want anything copied, I just wanted Windows XP and an anti-virus…
Whatever, all my settings are still there & I won’t have to re-install anything I guess.
I open it up, and it’s still slow. I figure it’s because my main drive is all filled up with videos & music, so I transfer all of it to my data drive. Takes something like 7 hours, but my main drive is empty and squeaky-ish clean. I go to sleep.
The next day, I open the comp back up and it’s still slow.
Whatever, don’t sweat the details yet, I got my comp back, glad I can re-start scanlating shit again.
And then… Early in the afternoon… I hear that wheezing sound, the same wheezing sound that I complained about before I sent the comp to get the HDD changed.
So I go find the extra HDD that I stored away, and I look at the online bill for the two HDD’s I bought.
The fucking technician forgot to install my new HDD & kept my old one inside the computer.
In the words of the late, great, immortal George Carlin…
What are you, fucking stupid!?
And so, here’s a new release.
Holyland 113 (!Holy113)
Next release will be something we started working on in mid-March, but stalled because when I was supposed to typeset it, my dad stole my PC and another group started working on it.
Since I don’t like wasting my translator & editor’s work, we’ll release it when it’s done regardless of whether or not the other group finishes it. (It’s one volume long.)
