Zoom! Zip! Dash!


See that streak of lightning flying by? That's me with my newly reconditioned laptop! It's sleek! It's speedy! It's not crashing!! Whoa, that's important enough to repeat - with lots of exclamation marks!! It's!! Not!! Crashing!!

And who says service is dead. The IT guy gave up his entire Saturday to keep working on my machine so that I wouldn't have to miss today and tomorrow as work days. When I told him I hoped he was getting a lot of overtime pay he said no, it was all on his own time ! (I'll be sending a VERY nice thank you note with a cc to both his boss and mine.)The ridiculous part of all of this is after spending 2.5 straight days (yes, I said DAYS) working on this machine, its lease is up at the end of June, at which time it will have to be replaced by a new one. I'm surprised he didn't just try to patch it up a bit, but no, he did a major league (and mucho needed) overhaul.

It's great to be back. I had serious withdrawal - I think I was starting to get the DT's!

Fabulous--nothing like losing touch with the internet to make you feel like a blogging junkie. I don't think I'm addicted until I can' get to my laptop.
