What is your worst computer story?

Crash on Thanksgiving just before I left to drive to see my parents in CT. Bright side: found out that I need a whole lot less of the stuff I thought I couldn't live without on my computer.

My worst story is mundane: my drive failed (yes, there's a metaphor there, too).

In any case, I saw that Guardian article; impressive how far MS will go for a billion dollars. But they're so incompetent that in a year, Chinese using MSN will probably be using their alphabet's equivalent of "fr**dom" and "demo_cracy" to get around the filter's rules.

The Killa Mozilla solved 95% of my invasive vermin problems.

One day back in the bad old IE times, I took down my firewall for a couple of minutes to test an incompatibility issue with another piece of software, and BLAM, my entire web profile and interface was turned into porn, porn and more porn. Took forever to root out all the nastiness.

Heretik, can I ask a question about Internet Explorer??
