and another one gone, and another one gone...  
My laptop (my main computer) is fucked all to hell. I'm not even going to go into what all is wrong with it. It's an eMachine. That's its problem.

I'm sending it in to eMachines to be fixed. It's a known defect, so it's all for free, so yay. But that means I'll be without my computer for a couple weeks, probably.

In a stunning burst of coincidence, Rob dropped his laptop, and the screen is fucked. So. We are now down to the desktop, and fighting each other for access. :) I may not be around much the next couple weeks, depending on who wins the daily wrestling match.

I want a new laptop. But dude, I have no job. So no new laptop for me. *sigh*

The job hunt is ongoing. I got some not-great news on the field I want to enter, and managed to restrain myself from blogging my fit of despair. Those posts always make me feel stupid when I get better. I have two meetings this week with others, and we'll see if there's hope. If not... well, I'll have to go in a different direction. I'm not sure what that is, but I'm trusting God, the universe, and everything to work something out so I can do good things.

Also? Karin Lowachee rocks. Gay space pirate geisha assassins! Things don't get any cooler than that, y'all.

Also also, I am in the middle of mountains of laundry (yay!) and signed up at the gym, though I haven't gone yet. Tomorrow I will! Gym and laundry tomorrow, and possibly ironing! I am the most productive lazy ass of all time!

Argh. Fighting over one computer is NOT fun! Come on over, camp out with me a few weeks. We've got a half dozen or so computer scattered about. Ken's a computer geek and never gets rid of anything that's still breathing. You might end up in Windows 3.1 or DOS, but well, hey!

I am not going to the frozen north. It's too damn cold up there! Ice and snow! I mean, down here I woke up to 40 degree weather and barely made myself get out of bed. Hee. :)

Although if I came up, I could snag a few cups of your sourdough starter. Ooooh...

That was me, up there.

I was wondering who that masked poster was!

*holds out sourdough starter as lure* You knooooooow you want it!

Do you have any spare monitors? Maybe plugging an external monitor in the laptop will make it usable. . .

Sadly, no. :( We got rid of everything extraneous before the move. Although that's an idea; we can maybe pick up a cheap monitor for the notebook. Hmmm.

To state the obvious, check it out with the desktop computer's monitor before you actually go to the trouble of locating another monitor. . .
