Oh, I am sooooo glad that I bought the 3 year warranty for my laptop! While it is being repaired I have a great loaner... basically the same m0del I have, but a newer version. I could just keep this one. Really, it is pretty much identical except this one has Windows 7 and I have Vista (damnit!).
So, now perhaps I can get busy. Computer problems are such a time suck.
I am way behind on moving my studio crap.
BUT, above all I am happy that it is warmer and I am alive and spring is getting closer every day!
It's all good!
