Divide by Null - undefined

Infinitesimals

Voicemail has its uses, for example, when one won't be able to pick up the phone for awhile, but needs to relay a message immediately, or when other forms of communication are not possible, i.e. e-mail or texting is inconvenient or irrelevant.

However, I still usually end up ignoring it, thus rendering most of the pros as moot.

On the subject of high school friends, just because you're different, doesn't mean you can't be friends.

Pi is wrong.

Well, actually, maybe it would just be better to use what is currently known as 2*pi. I've always thought it would be easier if sine and cosine had periods that were just pi, not 2pi.

So should pi be 6.283185...? Should pi be the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its radius, instead of diameter? If so, it would take about 50 years for this to gain any momentum in the mathematical community.

Crash! Good-bye data

So let's start with the background information. I decided I wanted to restart my computer. I thought I might as well do some windows update right before, because that way I can save myself some restarts. It goes through that and in the process, the computer crashes. There's the irony: the computer crashed while performing an update. This is probably the part that is the direct cause of the end.

I restarted and it crashed once more, after another hour or so. However, this time, it wouldn't start back up. I used the XP CD to boot windows back up, and to my surprise, it said that the C drive was unable to be found, invalid, gone.

Yeah. No. Ugh.

To put it simply, all of my data, aside from anything stored online or on my flash drive is (apparently) gone. Tomorrow, I'm going to dedicate quite a bit of time to determine if the data can be salvaged. I'm not going down without a fight.

In conclusion, I'm really annoyed. Angry. Unhappy to a high degree. Srsly.

I'm now relegated to my laptop and I think I'm going to start to spend more time examining Linux. I need to learn how to get that working.
