If anyone out there cares, here is an 'update' on my situation 9_9
Well, Poser is still semi 'dead' (the program itself is still on a seperate hard drive, but as i said before most of the stuff I was using recently still needs to be reinstalled).
Still don't know what the problem is/was with my main C drive; but every time I reinstalled the OS on it, about three days later it gave me the 'blue screen of death' on each reboot attempt.
I'm now using a smaller drive that works just fine as my main drive, and the previous drive solely for storage.
I've got about 30% of the old files restored, and I'll probably do a test render or two next week sometime.
On other 'news', with "Captain America" coming out next week, I've pulled out my old PS2 (since my XBox also burned out recently, dammit!!!). I'm playing Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, and this time I'm going to keep playing until I finish it, I promise :-)
One final thing, on my 'cynical' side (maybe due in part to the death of poser): Has anyone out there ever seen the movie "Idiocracy" by Mike Judge (creator of "King of the Hill" and "Beavis and Butthead", ironically)?
Its an interesting comedy set in a Post Apocalyptic future ruled by, well idiots ^_^. The first 10 minutes of the movie are the best, and seem to describe the stuff I'm dealing with perfectly :-):
