After two weeks and one day, I have my work-computer back. Huzzah!
I'm still trying to get things back to normal, and re-install all of my illicit software. Oddly, all of my Mozilla bookmarks showed up after I installed it. Really makes me wonder what all is being stored in my roaming profile. Although this would probably explain the several hours of hard disk thrashing that goes on every Wednesday.
Best of all, they got everything working again just in time for my vacation. Whoo hoo!
