Man, I have the worst luck ever...
I just hate this, today while trying to straighten my rim (done it before) I overdo it and my rim is now bent to the inside and completely whack.
I just hate when stuff like this happens, the ugly part of the sport, damn, I'm so pissed off now.

Your sub-conscious mind is serious wanting a new wheelset isn't it?
I've been riding for years, and of all the DIY stuff I do, wheels still go the LBS. So don't kick yourself too hard. I'd probably done the same.
Go to your LBS, they might be able to "True" Your rim.
I don't think its "trueable" and in any case I prefer to buy a single economic rim than have a weakened old one trued.
Well, look at the bright side, I'm now almost forced to buy a new bike, I'll get my old bike serviced for optimal use and I just got new gloves! (Black Specialized XC Team Long if anyone cares).
For me, the only thing that goes to the lbs is my fork. I have vowed never to work on it myself again
