Anyway, they put a bullet in it about a month ago: gutted it and gave it a new hard drive. Things have been working swimmingly since then. I had to restart for some reason right before I went to lunch. It shut down fine, but on the restart I got an error message that said something like “MM32.vxd is missing. Windows has stopped. Press CTL+ALT+DEL to restart”.
It doesn’t fill me with much confidence that these guys can’t keep a computer running for more than a month. Do I just ride my computer hard? What does this mean for the future of this internet company?
