i'm barely out of the country, and the stock market crashes -- twice!
my laptop is having the same problem. it won't start up. the error message is "file is missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys
soooooo... i doubt if i can get it fixed in hong kong. maybe over the next few days (in bankok?). if not, my ability to communicate via e-mail or blog could be severely degraded.
it's ok, though... breeeeeeeeeeeathe.
