My ex is sitting here, not speaking to me. Fine.
Yup, got a new computer. A shiny new desk top that Chaco built. The old one, she had been fading for a while.
Perhaps the worst thing was that, one by one, all of my USB ports shut down. Not only would they not respond to devices plugged into them, but the mere act of plugging anything in caused a plethora of error messages and then *CRASH* followed by very colorful language. ahem
For several weeks, I worked around it, thinking, "Boy, sure would be nice if I could upload photos / sync my ipod / copy files / etc." But a big bummer was that I could no longer do online tutoring. No more webcam, no more microphone, no more Wacom. Sigh.
I discussed this with my IT department (Chaco), and he... er... the department concluded that the ex was beyond repair. I needed new hardware.
He ordered. He built. I paid.
Today, I went to visit my online classroom and...
Although, it's pretty lonely there right now.
And in the meantime, my ex sits here. There are a few files I want to get off of her, but... well, she won't speak to me. I need to get with the IT department for a cable or two. But he... er... the department isn't here right now.
I know help is one the way, though, because Chaco says he's got plans for the ex.
Wait... didn't he say it was beyond repair...??
