Yeesh. I thought I knew the issue with my CD-ROM [me stupidly deleting some drivers], but apparently, that’s not the case. Nope, the IS guys think that it needs to be replaced.
This must make the fourth CD-ROM this machine has had since it’s sat in my office. That’s been about, oh, a year or so now.
Why does this worry me greatly? I swear, it’s not anything that I intentionally do …
Oh well, at least I’m not stuck in the middle of anything meaningful here at work. That way, when the IS guys come in, I’ll power down lickety-split and help him take it all apart and put it back together again. Woo.
