Rats are cute... Depending on the kind of rat, of course. But I guess they're mostly cute.

I remember when I had my rats. They were so cute and cuddly and soft and every time one of them passed away I was so sad ;___;

I do hope your little one gets better. I hate it when pets die ;_____;

I had a really huge fight with my little brother two days ago and he still won't talk to me.

Two days ago during the fight he called me names and he said that I never treated him nicely and always thinks negatively of him, which is true, and it does made me realize that, but I do have a reason--- he used to be really violent against the rest of the family and how he joked around with me is usually triggering my trauma of being bullied by some guys at my school back then. But I still felt terrible over it and regretted why am I scared of him. I really love him as a brother, and it hurts me that he didn't talk to me anymore. I curses myself for being too scared to talk to him right now......

....Lately I even thought that my family would work well without me, since compared to my brother I'm really lazy doing house chores and I do way more half-assed studies. During times I thought that maybe if my brother is the only child, everything would be better.

Response/AdviceShow
I have a younger sister and I have gone through a similar yet different experience. My advice is that you patch things up with him. Having a sibling (especially one close to your age) is a wonderful thing because more than likely, they will be able to relate to you more than parents will simply due to the generation gap. Sure, friends may be able to fulfill a similar role, but a family bond is special.

As for your self-esteem issues, I really don't have any good advice to give other than to think more positively about yourself. Everyone has their good qualities (even if they themselves may not always realize it); focus on these and you will come out the better for it.

Well, my paycheck hasn't come in yet. And because I get paid monthly (as opposed to biweekly), it's not a good feeling. Especially when I'm currently broke... And my tax returns may not come in for another two or three weeks. Once I get both of those, I will be fine, but right now, I'm really feeling the squeeze. -_-

So yesterday, I had an amazingly frustrating day for various reasons.
Things beyond my control went wrong and I was just acting badly...but then I told myself to stop acting like a little biatch and bought myself an ice cream.
I calmed down afterwards and enjoyed the rest of the day

Don't worry about your PC, if you are careful everything should be okay.
It's just that I wasn't really careful, basically I haven't done anything with my Windows for couple of years..
Even though It's not a bad idea to backup all your files and format + reinstall Windows once in a while...
or do some other stuff, like reg-clean and de-fragmentation plus a little memory clean-up.
Well you reap what you sow. I should have saved my docs on other HDD.
Or made partitions or something...

But thank you anyway Jello.

I think a stressed exec is a scary exec.

Anyways, note to everyone on Windows: if it stops updating, you stop depending on it.
ALWAYS backup, backup, backup. Backup anything that matters to you. 1T Hard Drives are pretty cheap nowadays. I even got a 64GB Flash Drive for less than $8.

All I hear is noise, noise, and even more noise, and I am trying to concentrate to get this work done. I need a breather, but I felt I have taken too many. Just when I wanted to get back to work, in the middle of it, I hear the same noise again. When will it stop? Do they even know that there's someone here who's trying to work. At least I try my best to be considerate and look over my actions to see if I am in the wrong. But maybe this is just me getting stressed out. Maybe I do need another break, even if I had taken too many.

A couple of days late, but I can relate.

Do you know if it was a mechanical failure vs. a logical failure? If it's a mechanical failure, there's very little you can do, other than find a a data recovery company in your area.

For those that live the United States and have money to spend, I recommend DriveSavers. The computer repair shop I've worked at has recommended them, and I recently contacted them about an issue where I work now. They are entirely professional in the industry, but be prepared to spend a little on their services which start at $700 and go up from there depending on how damaged/corrupt the hard drive in question is. The good thing about them is that you can send in your hard drive for a free evaluation, where they discern the damage to the hard drive and can give you a better quote on recovery costs. If you decide against the recovery process, they'll send your hard drive back at no cost.

If Windows was simply borked, and there's nothing wrong with the drive mechanically, you can attempt to save much of the data by formatting the hard drive, reinstalling Windows and running Recuva. The only caveat is that if there were files in locations on the hard drive where the new Windows installation is installed, you won't be able to recover those files since they will have been overwritten.

As for your other points, I would like to point out that partitioning on the same hard drive is only a safeguard if the hard drive hasn't suffered a mechanical failure.

I've never really understood why so many people recommend reinstalling Windows every so often. It seems to me (from my own experience fixing customers' computers) that many people get there computers screwed up because they clicked on, downloaded, or installed things they shouldn't have. Using common sense and being a responsible user will avoid most issues when it comes to maintaining a clean Windows environment. Most of the problems I have encountered on customers' computers were unwanted toolbars or other adware that got installed along with what they were actually trying to install. The simple remedy to this is to carefully read each step in the installation process before clicking "Next". If there are check boxes that are pre-selected, read the choices to double-check that's what you want.

As far as registry cleaners and other programs that claim to speed up your computer, most of those are likely scams and will probably do more harm than good. Especially if the programs include superlatives like "super", "max"/"maximum", or "pro" in them. If the programs are trial-only and require payment to use, they are most likely scams. Search for them on Wikipedia; if they don't have an article, they most likely aren't reputable. If the programs are free, check the Internet to see if they are reputable. A few of the websites I use that list free software are Gizmo's Freeware, Bleeping Computer, and Technibble.

CCleaner is pretty safe when it comes to basic cleanup for most users (those who don't add their own custom registry entries; i.e. computer geeks).

As far as testing memory and hard drives for integrity errors, Memtest86+ (download links are further down the page) is good, as is Western Digital's Data Lifeguard Diagnostics. WD's Data Lifeguard comes in both DOS and Windows flavors. I would suggest using the DOS version of the Data Lifeguard program since you can run it off a disc and it won't impact your hard drive while testing it. MemTest86+ is designed to be run off of a bootable disc by default.

As far as external storage, that's always a good idea. But if you're okay with trusting your data to another company, there are several online storage services available like Dropbox, Microsoft's OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive), and Google Drive, which all offer a free storage option (Google Drive offers the most at 15GB), and monthly plans for more storage. I haven't used either Google Drive or Dropbox, but I have used OneDrive at work, and you can even set it up so that your online storage appears as another partition on your computer.

By the way, I apologize for the wall of text. I typed a lot more than I originally intended.... ^^;
