Well, I managed to find something to take up my free time.
When you need something to do, just screw up your computer! It worked for me!
Yeah, well, there's a decent chance that I might lose all the data I worked on in the last couple months, but that's not the end of the world. In the meantime, though, I'm learning alot about fixing computers and recovering data from a hard drive that I screwed partitions and boot records on.
