Computer problems: update

The computer trouble I talked about on January 18 has not become better. Rather worse. Computer hangs most of the time, particularly if I try getting online. The harddisk's bad sectors are unfortunately (also) in the area where the OS sits. And the swap space I presume. I tries moving everything, but that didn't help - I just got more bad sectors ;)

Good news is that I bought a portable harddisk and managed to backup *most* of what I absolutely want to save. So, now I am going to rebuild the computer's harddrive and see if it will run for a while longer, if I put partitions so that the known bad sectors are not included.

The computer is getting pretty old, so I will eventually buy a new computer and replace it. But it would be great if I could get the current one to run for just a little while longer :)

Anyway, this means that I am probably not going to be much online until I get this fixed.
