Okay, so. Here I am, but I don't know how much I'm going to be online for the next, like, ever. There was a (very brief) power outage last night around midnight, and when the power came back on, I think there must have been a power surge that fried the insides of my poor computer. I can turn it on, but it doesn't go beyond the "Scanning for IDE drives..." part of the startup thing. Running setup doesn't work, nor does attempting to start in safe mode, so I think something important is missing/gone.

As most of you know, I'm looking for work right now and don't have much money, so I can't really afford to have it repaired myself. So unless my parents (who generally hate how much time I spend online and are constantly bitching about it - I think Mom might actually do a happy dance when I tell her the damn thing's broken :-P ) are wiling to pay for it, it might be a couple of months before I'm up and running again. Even if they do, it might be two or three weeks, I haven't really looked into repair times yet since I know I can't pay for it.

Right now, I'm on my dad's computer, because he's not home during the week. But, he is coming home tonight. Another problem with this computer is that it's in the room next to my parents' bedroom, and they go to bed super early. So I don't know how late I'll be able to stay online, if I'm allowed on up here.

So Sunny, I might not see you again for a while, happy graduation and try not to cry or kill Puggy when Alias ends. :-P

Puggy: just try not to cry when Alias ends. :-P I'll get to you with an HAEHAJUDJXHG sort of angry email about plotlines at some point. :-P (BECAUSE DIXON IS A FIELD AGENT AND A SINGLE PARENT, DAMMIT :-P )

All HC people reading this: I'll try my best, but I don't know if I'm going to be able to get any more tasks done, because I don't know how often I'll be here. Yubs or Mi: Would one of you let the board know? even though you two are the only ones really doing tass anyway. :-P I don't remember the address and my bookmarks aren't on this computer.

Yubs: I lost the ship meme. :-P

Han Solo would cry at this news!!

Seriously. I'm gonna miss my Tessie!

Also, HAH about CSI ahead of time.

And also, I totally called the crawling Tessie thing without even knowing it was raining in New Brunswick.

I don't think I should be proud of that, though.

I'm waiting to watch CSI with my sister, because I know she'll spaz.

And hee, I thought of crawling Tessie when the power went out, how sad is that?

If I was there, I'd repair your computer for free. :-p

As it is, I think that the only thing that might be broken is the hard drive. What's bad is that generally this means that everything you had on the hard drive is gone. The good news is that hard drives are cheaper than some of the other parts of the computer (like the motherboard). The fact that you can start it and that it's looking for the hard drives means that the motherboard still works. Looking on, you can get a decent hard drive for around $50 and just try to replace it yourself if you want. Newegg doesn't ship to Canada, but you can probably find a decent and somewhat cheap hard drive if you look around. They're not hard to replace, either. :-p

Heh, well, thanks for the thought anyway.

It actually turns out that we have a hard drive here from my sister's old computer, and Dad's going to try and transfer it over at some point. It's kind of cool, actually, because its 60 gigs larger than the one I killed. :-P

Hee at your icon! I'm here for a while, so I'll try and reply ASAP.

Yeah, parents generally do do the happy dance when the computer goes out, which is totally uncool.

:-( I hope you can get it fixed.

Well, I've been talking to you on IM, and if everything works out, I might actually be back by next week or the week after. And it's not like I'd see you a lot in that time anyway. :-P

What will I do without my Tess to be insane with? And trade crack!

I'm here, and the crack is here, for limited periods. :-P I'm currently on Dad's work laptop, which means no badfic, but I can handle tasking. And maybe a few crack trades. ;-)

You realize you're going to get clung to, right? :p

If we're ever online at the same time. (I can't get onto Yahoo from this laptop, so I'm only on AIM - I can't figure out how to work Yahoo's web messenger)

It will happen eventually. I'm at Riverview-home right now, so I'm only on YIM right now. I get back to Sackville-home tonight though. :p

*huggles Tess* Given that I just lived through it, I know how much "no internet at home" sucks.
