So, I'm happily listening to my new Gladiator soundtrack, and reach across to turn off the printer/scanner/copier/coffee-maker (an HP psc 1215). At which point the gentle strings turns into a harsh buzzing, and Windows bluescreens.

Well, I suppose I should restart my computer soon anyway to finish installing the latest patches, but, but, but, grrryyaarrrrrgghh!!! I will reboot my computer as and when *I* want to, not when some two-bit driver written by some utter moron decides to scribble over the system tables and make Windows explode messily. Yes, I'm looking at you, HP. And you, Microsoft. All I did was turn the bloody printer off!

Now I have to go and pick up the pieces of the two programs I was working on, hope that I have saved any changes I made to them, tidy up the playlist for XMPlay and re-add the music I just added, and generally work out what I was doing and get it back to the state it was in.
