Vacation and Computer problems
Well, I have been back since the 11th of August (as I promised you all), but I really do have a valid excuse for my absence from this site. My computer went on the fritz at the absolute worst possible time. I had a 25 page course final thesis due on the 11th at 7pm, and by the 9th of August, I had it all complete and revised, ready for printing. I figured I would print it once I returned from the beach.
Let me tell you how wrong I was. My computer developed an "unmountable boot volume" error as well as an innumerable number of "hard errors" that I could not seem to fix. My files were unextractable, even in Safe Mode. I wanted to cry (to tell you the truth, I did a bit); but I sucked it up and wrote the whole damn paper again from my notes. Three and a half hours and 25 pages later, I had the worst pile of shite I have ever handed in to a professor. I was both proud of myself for finishing, and embarassed to hand the thing in.
I just took my computer in for a fix and just got it back today, so I'm back. No worries.
So thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
