As for what to do about my computer:

rowena524 is having a going-away party in Dallas tomorrow evening, and I plan to drive up. I'll take my computer with me and have youngvanwinkle look at it. If he can fix it, great; if not, my mom insists I should buy a new one from a store. We'll see how that goes.

After that, I plan to spend the night in Dallas, and drive back home on Sunday.

New computers are nice. My last three Dells have been reliable, the only problem has been the somewhat-noisy fans.

I like Dell's desktop machines a lot. I warn people away from their laptops, though.

It strikes me that your mom's solution to any sort of mechanical failure is to buy a new one. ;)

Same with my wife. I think it's a woman thing

And it explains why men are broke.

Speaking of "broke", see my latest post.

Well, my mom was okay with things for a while, but then the number of times Mintaka (youngvanwinkle) had to drive down from Dallas to fix stuff started growing.

Also, see my latest post: the system is so far gone that even Mintaka recommends I buy a new one.
