Fight
And she put sweet nothings in all my .conf files.  It'll take me forever to get X working again.
Title text: And she put sweet nothings in all my .conf files. It'll take me forever to get X working again.

Explanation

The boot sector of a hard drive is where the information for operating systems is stored, which tells the computer what operating system to boot into. If it is overwritten, an operating system stored on the drive can't be booted into.

The .conf files of Linux are where all the settings for various applications are stored. Since all the configurations were replaced with sweet nothings, none of the programs work as they should.
