Good News Everyone!

Yes, and unlike the Professor in Futurama, I actually have good news! My laptop has been returned to me. I am so glad to have it back. After weeks of the tough book, it seems so big! The screen appears massive and the keys are huge. I will miss the tough book. It was so portable and the battery life was fantastic. Anyway, the good news about my laptop is that it has a new hard drive, has windows vista (which I wanted after trying it out on Pinky's laptop), the missing buttons have been replaced, a lot of my missing files and photos have been recovered and it didn't cost and arm and a leg to fix. In fact, it was a very painless transaction for the pocket. The not so good news is that I miss having Microsoft office (boy, how I miss it!), and I am missing some documents that weren't recovered from the hard drive - most notably two book outlines with first chapters and several short stories I was working on. In Search of the Moon, Til the Moon Fails, Mungo's books and Seven Days in Hell were also missing, but I was able to find them (or versions of them) saved on various memory keys. I have learned my lesson from this episode and have backed all my files onto a memory key. This is a valuable lesson to learn and has worked out well before I had something really important that I couldn't afford to lose because I had to make a deadline to a big publisher.
