In your face, blue screen of death!
My laptop is back and better than ever, thanks to some help from my new best friend, Neil the Dell Guy. After putting it off for quite a few days, I have this very evening installed a new hard drive, drivers and almost all of the software I had before (minus iTunes, but that will soon be remedied). I'm even wireless again. Soon I'll be back to writing from my back deck and I barely missed any summer during my down time.
Everything's comin' up Millhouse!
