the day the music died...

so maybe not the music, but the computer. so it's been a bit of a crazy week as far as computers go. my main computer, lets call him compy, crashed last week. :( to make matters worse, it crashed during the first webcam chat we've had with stan (my dear sweet adorable husband who is deployed overseas) in two months...

picture the scene... happy family chatting on the webcam. then the screen goes black. there are two girls crying in the hall and mom is trying to get it started again. 5 system restores and a back up to the external hard drive while in safe mode later... i unplug compy and take him into the repair shop. 4 (buisnes days... 6 actual days) pass, and i get compy back... plug the web of cords in, turn him on and... SYSTEM FREAKIN' ERROR!!! aaaarrrrggg! at least the computer guy guarantees his work! so compy will be making the 20 minute trek back into town tomorrow. he must have gotten car sick on the way home today. :(

the silver lining is that stan told me to go get myself a laptop... (what a guy!!!) so i am typing this post from my new macbook. so far so good! my parallels program arrives tomorrow, so i'll be able to install windows xp on my mac, and then photoshop. so i'll be back in business then! :D

anyway, just thought i'd share my week of computer craziness... may your computers run better than mine! ;)

I know how disappointing those can be...the webcam sessions are so special (especially for the kids, who want to see daddy). Our computer wasn't that bad, though...I sure hope they get it all fixed!

Yikes! Sounds like fun. Enjoy the new laptop though!

Well that was just bad timing on compy's part. Glad you got a new macbook to keep you going though. Can you get another webcam visit in soon? Hope so!
