Are you wanting to fry the operating system as well? Is there only one drive in the computer? It's rather typical these days to leave the operating system and the programs on the C: drive and keep the data on the D: or other letter-named drive. In which case, formatting D: would leave you with an otherwise functional computer.

A favorite old Tupperware container committed suicide this evening when I opened the freezer and it slid off of the shelf and landed on the corner of it's flat self and shattered. It was originally sold as a container that could hold ~ two pound packages of bacon; I've used it for all sorts of stuff, everything EXCEPT bacon over the last 30+ years. I will miss it, and I'll go see if the Container Store has something along similar lines. I liked it for saving things like enchiladas that were baked in a foil-lined pan and then I could put the foil-wrapped contents into the Tupperware and freeze them for later. It was good for cookies, for various other small things that there weren't a lot of. RIP, faithful old Tupperware. Most of the rest of it has been replaced and given away (except the nesting three color bowls with lids).

I repaired the strap of a shoulder pack (it's a tear-shaped single-strap pack) in which the padding inside the strap had slowly slid down, wadding at the bottom. I pushed and tugged and massaged the padding back up to the top of the strap them used the sewing machine with the walking foot to zig zag a couple of rows of stitches across that. Works like a dream and the bag is going to feel better to carry around.

This evening I'm finishing a holiday letter and some work to do with the eBay listings of some masks. The algorithm involved in searching there doesn't let my distinct sale name turn up, it only confirms it is the correct sale if someone can find it. Search engines work after a site has been crawled and indexed, and I don't know how long that is taking these days.
