I connect computers, humans, and narrative.

I'm always looking for interesting projects, especially if they involve Lisp/Clojure, Python, or JavaScript. I am in the process of relocating to Seattle to join the team at Amazon. I write about technical thoughts at http://stronglyemergent.com along with a co-author, and I have a GitHub page that I'm gradually populating with projects as well as a CV/résumé at Stack Overflow Careers.

Especially since an XML parser knows what XML is supposed to look like and can show exactly where the error is without the trial-and-error of refining a regex for the specific case.

comment How does one make Windows XP auto-reconnect network drives upon reboot?
I can't believe this stayed a problem in Vista and Win7. That's a decade-old OS wart, what the heck.

Ah, I didn't see it in that light. Thank you. Yeah, might need to be closed, then. I freely admit that I was a bit desperate when I asked.

It overlaps a little, but I think that this question is a lot more specific and answerable than that one.

That's a decent recommendation. What part of MS should I call? It's not like they have just one phone number, and searches for "licensing problem" and the like tend to turn up lots of not-so-useful results.

We were having a very similar issue, and that command helped in our situation. Thanks.

Chkdsk got stuck on file N out of a few hundred thousand for 16+ hours, so I'm calling that a failed drive, I think. :(

No it is not - so if chkdsk is capable of that, as you imply, I'd better try it.

While that's interesting, that's not really an answer.

This is a machine that had been running fine for a year or so, so I doubt that it's a driver issue, and I don't think that the BIOS settings have been changed - I looked through them while troubleshooting. Couldn't hurt to look again, though.
