crushed

My computer crashed this week...or well I downloaded Java to fix a Shockwave error and inadvertently download some other stupid piggy back thing and as I tried to remove it fucked up my computer and I don't have the reinstall disk that I need to fix the issue. I'm pretty sure I got rid of the disk awhile back.

My computer is a decade old. She runs just fine for the most part, which why I've not bought a new one yet. but if I can't get her fixed (since apparently MicroSoft doesn't support XP anymore) I guess I need to get a new one. I don't want to. I like my old faithful computer and it's not really in my budget.

Thankfully I'd been moving a lot of things over to my external hard drive so I didn't really lose anything important other than all my settings and the many web pages that I had favorited. Decisions, decision. Hopefully I hear back soon from the gentleman who fixed my computer last time and he can fix it quickly.

In other news, it's winter and a blustery below zero day. I'm off, but I have a package I need to drop off at FedEx and at the Post Office so I'm forced to leave the house today. Yay!!! There will be many layers. I figure this is just prep for my trip to Chicago next week. I've already decided I don't really plan to leave the hotel but to eat (and have just about every meal planned out). I'll just nap and relax the rest of the time away.

Man that sucks they dont offer support. Fingers crossed repair is easy and cheaper than a new computer. Windows8 suuuuuucks.

Oh I'm sorry about that :( Maybe you can find an affordable netbook at Target or Walmart? I've found pretty good deals there :)
