Alright then, here’s a brief update on my computer apocalypse situation.
Through sheer determination and stubbornness, I managed to crack into my laptop and make an updated backup of all of my documents, including Chapter 5.17 and the handful of pictures I’d already taken for it. Woo!!!! That’s the good news.
The bad news is that my laptop is evidently about as functional as a wooden glove on a foot. I’ve tried everything I (and Google) could possibly ever think of; including biting the bullet, wiping the entire thing, and doing a full reinstall of Windows using the recovery disk, but still NOTHING. I suppose the fact that the setup ran like molasses on a completely flat surface should have been an indication that there was no hope, but again, I’m stubborn, so I waited it out…and the thing still crashes/won’t start up/gives me a big old middle finger. What the ever living–*incoherent spluttering*
Well FINE computer, FINE. *breathes heavily* Here is my white flag. EAT IT!!! >:O
Anyway…..*sighs* Clearly, I need to buy a new laptop before I can get posting again, so after I’m done writing this I’m going to go browse the web for recommendations/good deals. If you guys have any to supply as well, I’d be more than happy to hear them ^_^ I suppose I’ll also go look up what the most nutritional cereals are too while I’m at it since I’ll probably be living off it for a while…har har har.
Ah well, at least I know that my REAL friend–my beautiful AMAZING external hard drive–has everything ready and waiting to be placed on my lovely NEW laptop when I finally obtain it. *POINTED GLARE AT THE BARELY THREE YEAR OLD AND EXPENSIVE HUNK OF USELESS PLASTIC AND METAL LYING ON MY BED* I TRUSTED YOU!!!!!!
*breathes again* *smiles* Hope you’ll all continue to be patient with me! Trust that I’m trying to get back as soon as possible. ….*kicks laptop* ….. 😀
