Jesus, I have lost my desktop computer a hundred times and have back ups to bring it kinda back. Stay away from porn and you will be fine in the future.  Schit happens but be prepared next time also stop with the porn. Naa that is stupid thing to say.  Stick with the porn but have back ups!

Divide your time between the green bar crawling across your screen, binge-viewing your favorite series on Netflix (or Prime or whatever), and refills of your favorite drink.

And if anyone tries to interrupt you, you're "desperately trying to salvage your data".

It was totally unrelated to that, and it wasn't a virus issue. It's a MIDI issue with one of my controllers that Ableton Live just stopped talking to.

This is actually a Mac I'm working on, so I've got it all backed up.

Masturbate furiously.

But you seem to have that covered already.

Butt stuff.  Even if you are alone.

Download Clonezilla, read the F Clonezilla manual. Use it.

Cobra Kai starts on Netflix today I believe, so good place to start.

Hopefully you have a good backup subby. That you test from time to time. Remember, if you don't test your backups you don't even really have backups.

Buy or borrow a PS4 Pro and play Ghost of Tsushima. You will forget about your PC for 32-50 hours in the first play-through.

I was going to suggest Animal Crossing. It makes the hours melt away.

Don't forget to save your bitlocker key in multiple locations. Thumb drive, printout of it locked in a safe, note on your phone, tattoo on the inside of your eyelid, etc.

That used to take a full day and involve inserting many floppy disks and CDs.

Now it's a few hours and can be mostly unattended.  Watch a movie and you'll be almost done.

My wife plays AC more than I do. In hindsight, she should've been the mayor.

No, this is on a Mac, but I had a current enough backup.

Damn amazing site for installing commonly used, free programs of various types. Download one little thing, run it, and it does all the work for you. Highly recommended for reinstalls or even program updates.
