Slightly, but not entirely shocked

You scored as Carrot Ironfounderson. You are Captain Carrot Ironfounderson of the City Watch in the greatest city on the Disc - Ankh-Morprok! A truly good natured, honest guy, who knows everyone, and is liked by all. Technically a dwarf, but only by adoption. You'd rather not be reminded that you are the true heir to the throne, but that does explain why people naturally follow your orders.

I seem to have fucked things up

I installed the latest ATI drivers, having previously uninstalled the old set.

What I hadn't bargained on, was that the old set were Omega drivers - produced by a 3rd party, and thus there seems to be some kind of horrible incompatability going on.  The two main symptoms of which are a "Cannot load low level device driver" error on startup, and Half Life 2 crashing intermittently on me.

I'm now going to spend an hour playing with it, before deciding that it's just fucked and reinstalling Windows.

Phew - all working again

I uninstalled all of the various graphics drivers I seem to have managed to install, deleted any left over folders, and then reinstalled the bog-standard ATI ones.

And now it all works.

I _hate_ it when things don't work.  It's one of my biggest neuroses - I get very tense when things aren't doing what they're supposed to.

TV Request

Is anyone recording "50 greatest documentaries" on Channel 4 tonight?

If so, can they get me a copy?  I can accept VHS, DVD or MPEG format...
