the nice young man at the computer store told me to expect to hear from them about what was wrong in about four days. he also said that getting it back repaired was likely going to take ten days. tat was wednesday. today is saturday.
i picked it up repaired yesterday afternoon and it has been sitting on my desk since then getting all its data restored, a process which is it nearly halfway through.
so do i have photos of my snohaus construction from this or any other year? pictures from the geocaches i went to? screenshots of the games i've been playing? any of the videos leftover from the end of glitch?
in a word, no.
meanwhile, why don't you both go read this blog? it's a big favorite of mine.
