Well, it didn’t take long. Just an extra ten days or so. Princess the PMSing Laptop is thisclose to being sold for parts, I just need to talk to my PC Guru again tomorrow afternoon to get the whole story. I finally got it and my EHD to my Guru yesterday, because they still weren’t talking. The EHD is fine, the OS hard drive is fine, the hard drive with all the files on it is toast. Not expecting that. I am so pissed I could spit nails and breathe fire. The computer is three years old and this will be the SECOND time I would need to replace that hard drive. I’ve already done both hard drives once, the DVD/CD tray, and the motherboard because the POS got so hot things melted. Yes, melted. Guru smelled smoke when he opened the case. Everything was still under warrantee then, so a PITA, but no prob.
Remember? Warrantee expired a week and a half ago. I did not renew.
We leave in 36 hours for several days in Iowa. I will be computerless, which means I will be frantically writing posts for NaBloPoMo in advance. I will not fail at that because of my POS laptop. Tom is on a business trip until tomorrow afternoon, I should be packing and prepping for the trip. Instead I’m writing, pricing out new Macs, and checking out the black market going rate for kidneys.
So! A poll!
Ahh…technology. Designed to make our lives easier and failing miserably.
