I pride myself that I don't scare too easily, with one exception:

After a recent clean install on my machine (A Dell desktop), I thought it's a good time to run Dell's update utility. It gave me the dreaded message: "Your BIOS needs updating"! I do understand a little about BIOS systems and what can happen if you write a new BIOS to the main board and the process gets interrupted or fails for any reason. In many instances you can kiss your main board goodbye!

So with trembling fingers I told Dell Update to proceed, eyes glued to the main monitor. I blush to disclose that I may even have uttered a silent prayer - my first in a long time. Things did not seem to go very smoothly. The machine must have restarted about 5 times. At this stage my nails were gone!

Finally after many minutes, the machine restarted a final time and I was greeted with the running cursor as Windows loaded. I breathed out and collapsed behind the keyboard. What a hair-raising experience! OMG | :OMG:
