Well, my computer is currently in the shop getting a little fix. I had a problem with it rebooting for no reason every so often, especially after long periods of having it shut down. So far, the computer guys say it's just dirty inside and are removing some spyware and will do a RAM test tomorrow. My computer is three years old, but very good and this is the only problem I've EVER had with it. I've never had it freeze, and I've never had it do the "blue screen of death," so that's good. It's just getting it a little check up and cleaned up. They said the rebooting problem was possibly due to the dust causing some overheating, but if I let it keep doing that, it would damage the system. Sooooooooo, hopefully I'll have it back tomorrow before I go to work, and when I get home from that, I can join in all the fun at the porn party and what not. 

In other news, I have updated my IYFG post to reflect my secondings. All that remains now for seconds is Songs of Faith and Devotion for Best Songfic/Poem. 

I suppose I should go and work on some stuff, especially considering I don't have any real computer access until tomorrow (Hopefully). I'm using my dad's new computer, and it's nice, but I miss mine!

Anyways, when I get my computer back, I'll look through the remaining nominatons and make a few seconds, I suppose. I hope all of you have a good day and I hope to see everyone at the porn party---even if I'm LATE..

Until next time,

I'm trying to keep mine out of the shop. Rawr.

I'm just glad mine doesn't seem to be an "uh-oh" fix. It's more of a preventive of the "uh-oh."

I'm on an ancient computer, one we have lying around after the new computer was brought in. The other one lying around is now named, I think appropriately, Fuck Face. He acted like the internet wasn't there. It's a Compaq, and I HATE those more than I hate Dells. My computer was built by a local computer genius, literally. He built the new one my dad just got, too. That's why when the little "what the hell are you doing rebooting like that" happened, I brought it into him and I'm getting it taken care of right away.

I guess I'll just have to use this crappy thing until then.

Our first computer together was an old IBM Aptiva, my first computer actually. Upgraded to a box built by some dude with a computer store. Dad got an HP, and afte Mom bought a new one for my sister, Dad let me have his.

SO the current computer is a mishmash of two computers-motherboard out of the HP, with two HDs, and the case is from the builder.

I think I fixed it though, and one can always use up to date backups.

My first computer was a shitty 1.2 GIG that worked great until we put Windows 98 on it. It went from Win. 3.1 to 98 and did NOT like it. Then I had a 9.5 GIG on 98, and now I'm on a 40 GIG XP system. It cost me thirty bucks for the clean up and all that, so it's all good!
