Computer decided to go titsup again, Windows unable to boot with standard "well, it could be anything" symptoms. Shitty piece of software. I swapped out the defective memory with a piece I had lying around from the last time my memory died. (This is the third piece of memory to go titsup in this machine. I am beginning to suspect that I radiate some strange hardware killing field. This does of course fit with being water aligned (fire being the element governing most things technical.)
Packing started on so sense of panic receding slightly. I'd better go off and do some more though.
