Awwwwwww!!!! You all are so wonderful!!!
I operated on my comp Saturday, fixed the CD tray, and the power supply died when I turned it back on! (You shoulda seen the dust inside of this computer. UGH. It's a miracle the whole thing didn't fry). Anyways, I took this "old" thing to Best Buy (where I bought it), paid $30 for 30 minutes of diagnostics, only to have them tell me they no longer carry the power supply I needed!!
Being a holiday weekend, my hands were tied. In order to avoid having to deal with Compaq, I waited until this morning to dive into the Yellow Pages and call local computer repair companies in search of a power supply. HA!! NO ONE had one. In desperation, I stopped by a tiny little repair shop--that did not even have a number in the phone book--after work today. Guess what? They just happened to have what I needed!!! I bought it, had it installed, and brought it home. Under $100 total. I am one happy little camper! :D
Anyways... I really missed all of you. People have told me that you can't have "real" friends on the internet, and I say "WRONG". I do love you guys, and you are honestly some of the most decent people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Thanks so much for thinking of me, cuz I'M BACK!!!!
Oh. A tip from me: Buy a can of compressed air twice a year, and blow the crap outta your comp!! Saves lots of headaches!
(Oh, yeah. One last thing. I came home with the computer and told the kids that I couldn't find a power supply. I lasted about 5 minutes before I confessed. <evil grin> Well, it WAS April Fools Day!! *wink*)
See you all tomorrow!!! *smootch!!!!*
