Life is (sort of) GOOD!!!!

Problem: No working laptop and 70 pages worth of papers due in the next 15 days.

Solution: Whip out credit card, go to store, and buy AWESOME SHINY NEW LAPTOP!!!!

Ignore: $1,000 credit card bill that will be coming eventually and the fact that I'm not going to get any work done today due to shopping for said shiny new laptop and likely spending the rest of the night configuring it so I can work on it (Forget moving music and the like. I'll worry about that later. But there are some things I have to do just to use it like, say, install Office).

Reaction: Jump up and down in all kinds of excitement.
Feeling: YAY!!!!
Exploring: Dining room table with SHINY NEW LAPTOP
Listening: hum of SHINY NEW LAPTOP


What's Taters, Precious?

Hooray for shiny new computers. We can be new computer buddies. ;)

Hooray for shiny new computers!

I really don't think that can be said enough :-)

How are you going with breaking in your SNC and making it really feel like it is yours?

Have I told you I adore these new colors?

What's SNC stand for? I own this computer already. Can't imagine having worked on anything else. I'm loving being able to have an IM screen open next to a Word doc or my browser, or having two Word docs spread out. Widescreen monitors are a writer's dream. :)

Thanks :)

LOL. I was just too lazy to type Shiny New Computer/Laptop again and too excited to call it anything but shiny and new.

The screen dimensions on this one and my old one are about the same total but completely different in widths and lengths since this one is a widescreen. I'm totally digging that! I've been working in two documents with one on top and one on bottom with some of my research over the past few days and the side-by-side is so much cooler! It does mean the keyboard is a bit bigger so the keys are spaced differently. I'm making more typos than normal because I'm not reaching far enough. But I love this thing and I bet within two days, tops, I'll be flying along like always.

Oh, LOL. I'm apparently stupid when it comes to initials. gilpin25 said "VPL" for visible panty line the other day in relation to the boxers or briefs debate, and I had no idea what she was talking about. Context clues don't help me out. Or else I just don't think to look for them...

WOOHOO! Yayyayyay! Maybe this one will behave.

Now I want a shiny new laptop, even though mine is just a year old. When the hard drive crashed on this, taking everything with it a few months ago, and they installed the new one, all of the setup and structuring of a Sony (if that makes any sense) was gone and it was like a Dell, which continues to drive me batty. I much preferred the Sony setup, and I have no clue how to get it back that way. I want my Sony back. Hee.

Mine was 2.5 years old and hadn't had any problems until this power disaster. I'm hoping my dad will be able to fix the old one in a more lasting fashion and then I'd have 2 laptops. As if I don't have enough tech already ;)

Sorry you can get your configuration the way you want it. I'm going a bit batty with this one and will be until I have the time to really play with it. I spent most of this evening setting up the major stuff and tomorrow it's back to the HW so everything will have to be on hold until Dec. 20.
