So, after Babe tried, it was determined that Lappy is dead! :(  He ordered a new recovery disc and is going to buy a new hard drive and see if he can repair it (we'd replace Dino with it if it works).  But, because I am spoiled he found a great deal at work, I gots me a new computer. 

I'm still mourning the loss of my other computer (we bonded over too many words of fic), but I have high hopes for this one (after I get use to Windows 7).  So today is going to spent doing the epically annoying task of transferring the saved files, downloading everything from iTunes to GIMP, finding a pretty desktop background, and trying to scramble around and remember all my saved passwords, etc.

(And let's not even start on how this computer doesn't have a word processing program so I have to use Open Office and none of my Works files are converting over.  Thank goodness that Dino has Works and I'll covert them to word docs.)

Let's just say that today is one of those days I wish I drank coffee. :P :P

ETA: I'm already on my way to geekifying my laptop. It's all about Halo, baby!

ETA2: And now I realize that I've lost all my fonts. Dude.

Windows 7 does take some getting used to. Open Office isn't a bad program though, I like it a bit better than word for some things, although I found out during NaNoWriMo it greatly exaggerates your word count!

So be careful on that!

Thanks for the heads up with that. I remember someone talking about that over at [livejournal.com profile] yuletide but I kind of blew over that post because I was like "Heh, I don't have to worry about that." Oops...I found that Google Docs is pretty accurate (I love the ease of using it, but not the auto-save feature. :P )

I've never used Google docs so I wouldn't know about that one, lol. It was a definite ego buster when I realized how inflated my word count was with Open Office. :p

Ugh yeah, I remember having to DL all my fonts again, because transferring them didn't work *sigh*

But windows 7.. oh man, it is AWESOME!!!! :D

Hope it won't take too long hun, transferring it all and making it ready.
