a blank canvas...
heh. windows sure is finicky.
was having so much trouble with the visual basic IDE lately, that i finally bit the bullet and decided to reinstall windows. that worked, but then the internet didn't
. so i dug out the manual back from when i first went on broadband, made sure all my settings were correct, still no net. reinstalled the drivers for my ethernet card. no dice. swapped out ethernet cards. nope. booting into linux the whole time, confirming that it was indeed a windows only thing, as the net worked fine from there.
finally decided to really bite the bullet and format c: drive.
for whatever reason, i now have internet back. sigh.
oh well, on the bright side, i now have a spanking clean windows install to mod with.
