Apophis…not the false god

Apophis is the name of one of my computers. I was having problems with it this past week. I was having trouble pinpointing the problem until I looked at the Event Viewer and saw that the DVD-ROM drive was throwing out read errors. I decided to be lazy for the interm and just plug a SCSI controller in the computer and hook an external 16x CD-ROM drive. All that work just to keep from having to open both sides of the case to take the bad drive out seemed easier than fooling with moving the computer from where it is located right now. It just sucks a great deal that I will now have to one day purchase another DVD drive for that computer. It currently acts as my graphics/sound editing and gaming machine. My main machine still can do all of the above but I am trying to seperate duties of each computer.
