So, I've rapidly gone from owning two computers to owning zero, effectively. My desktop is still at the repair shop, employees of which keep saying they're going to call me back. So far, all communication for the last six weeks or so has been initiated on my end, and I'm getting just a little sick and tired of it.
And, in the meantime, I wiped my laptop and re-installed Windows Vista, only to find out that the problem was, as expected, with my hardware. The new hard drive should arrive within two business days; until then, I'm reduced to using the computers at work in-between clients. I mean, I could re-install all the drivers and key programs onto my broken hard drive, and then figure out how to let it back into my wireless router, but that's just a bit more work than I'd like to do. Especially since I'm going to have to do it all over again on Friday.
So it'll probably be silent running here for a couple of days. Just imagine I'm trying to avoid the Reavers or something.
