Well, a few days silence, while I shift operations back to the desktop. Gecko's awaiting delivery of a fresh hard disk, and I have a new amusing paperweight in the form of the old one. The only data casualty I've noticed so far is a cache of emusic downloads which I'd forgotten were being stored in a random folder somewhere.
