Time vs. Curiosity, or, How I re-installed my OS and all software without ever knowing what was wrong

Written by , Posted in General

Last week my computer locked up and, after a fair amount of research, I determined that I needed to re-install my OS. The fun part was that I’m still not sure why I needed to do so; I know just enough about computers to know it had to be done but not enough to explain why. Other time constraints made devoting a lot of time to this problem difficult, but last night at about 3:15 a.m. I restored the system to the state it was in before the mystery problem occurred.
