Well, semi good news on the laptop front! I was able to pick up my computer from the nerds, um, technicians on Saturday evening. It's working and I'm using it right now! My files were saved! And I'm backing up all my files. Actually, I was going to back up my files the morning my laptop crashed!
The computer techs had some bad news. Unfortunately, my hard drive is failing, because it's old, and I need to replace it soon. So by the end of this week, I'm heading back to the geek shop so that my laptop will get a new, bigger hard drive. But the good news is, I still have my Windows XP cd that came with the laptop, and I can use it with my new hard drive! I don't have to worry about buying Vista and having it eat up a lot of my computer's resources.
So, why haven't I been around this weekend? Well, I've been busy with life and what not. Anyway, I'll be visiting y'all soon at your blog houses. And I'll try to catch up on postings. It feels so good to have my own laptop again, because I'm not at the library where I worried about the germs and filth--on the computers and the people who were in the library. I swear, a few of those people kept hacking all over the computers and book shelves!
