Default So, I got a new phone.. On the other hand I crashed my system

Haven't been on in a while (couple days) Because of a "hal.dll" file problem..

Had to do a reinstall of my computer because of it.

It all started because Ubuntu was not starting (I had it dual booting with wubi install)
Which of course uses the boot.ini file which apparently uses the hal.dll file.
I was getting an error about the <system root> \WINDOWS\hal.dll.
Yet Windows Xp could start just fine..

Any one know a reason for this?

But anyway.. Ended up with a bad hal.dll and crashing the system...
When I screw up, I'm going to screw up well




Also as the title says, I got a new cell phone today.
Verizon plan. (1400mins, unlimited messaging)
I ended up with the enV3 in blue.

Meh, you were using ubuntu with wubi?
Both are notorious for spontaneously getting random FS errors, and dirty systems after installing applications.

Havent figured out why, as debian is amazing for me.

Dual install?
I think it's just because of the whole wubi installing into windows factor.

Hm. Ok. Well it's sort of like psst unless you haven't heard that one either


You sound it out, for example "pssss" would be the sound you usually try to get someones attention quietly.

EDIT: For got a definition lol, it mainly means "Yeah OK!".

Well that is what it was designed for.

Everyone who knows what they're doing generally will do an ISO or network install, though I have now moved into the realm of IMG installs, as it will eliminate burn errors.

Why did you use wubi?!
