Gather Round Children ...

So ... I was all set to go to Florida for March break with my kids (around March 10th). And my computer started acting wonky (and yes, that is the technical term). No big deal, left the computer at home. After the aching loss passed, I spent time beside the pool, at Disney, at a horse show with blazing sun and no shade. Then I used the kid's laptop to surf LJ.

Got back from Florida, computer officially NOT working.

No problem, I gots warranty. Bring computer in, nice man says he'll fix it, all is good. I can always check LJ at work, right? Wrong, the stupid VPN firewall blocks all "social networking" sites. Okay, not so bad, will check email. Wrong, Google says "What email?" Hmmm, maybe I've misremembered the password. Knew I shouldn't have gone with the auto-fill-in thingie. This is not good.

Get computer back ten (working) days later. Yay! Fixed! Except, not. I still have no gmail. Send gmail a "I've forgotten my password" note. Get back a "You don't got no account" note. I am puzzled, perplexed even.

And then ... my computer proceeded to eat itself. Complete meltdown, not even a blue screen of death, just died ... ded ded ded. I must say, I was not happy with the guy who fixed it before. He knows that now. He said he'd get it back to me as soon as possible, which ended up being three days before I moved.

They've resurrected my baby. She works okay now. But I gots no gmail and I doubt I ever will. They maintain I never had an account. Except ... I emailed my account and it didn't bounce back. Argh! And I lost most of what I had saved on the hard drive. Including the thousand words and outline I had written for Big Bang.

So, to make a short story long ... I have been without MY computer for much of the last month and a half. Oh, I could surf boring shit at work. And I could use the kid's computers to check my email (if I could get gmail to admit I had any). But I have been without porn, people. This is just wrong.

Please, tell me what I've missed. Link me to stuff, rec stuff to me, Sweet Jesus, I need to catch up!

Oh, and if you need to get a hold of me, try me at kradey at hotmail dot com. I just don't have the energy to go changing my profile right now.

A judge is giving Brittney more time with her kids and Brooke got booted off American Idol.

My poor, baby!! I would call you and console you (or talk dirty... which ever), but your home number seems to have been disconnected and your cell phone isn't on.

Glad that you are back on line, though.

Eeek! I'm sorry you've had so many tech woes, and that gmail thing is just bizarre. I wish I could offer up links, but this was been a 70-hour work week month, and I haven't had time to read much myself. Welcome back online, though!

I swear you have the worst luck with computers. Do you bathe them or something? There are apparently software programs that can recover data from damaged drives. I've recently heard good things about this one. I think you might be able to download a trial and use it to see if data is recoverable, then purchase the software to actually recover it.

Wasn't aware, of course, that you've changed phone numbers and email addresses. You know where to find me should you ever want to talk again.
