Frankenputer went into the light.
It's okay, I've momentarily resuscitated him-unfortunately I didn't really fix anything so much as jiggle things and press the same commands three hundred times out of desperation...so he could go back to that big Intel in the sky at any point now. Why is this good news?
Becaaaaaaaaaaaause...since Frank is now officially the undead zombie computer Hubby says that I can get a laptop on the 16th! Thank GOD there are 5 paychecks in October, right? And of course, thank GOD that I have the most amazing Hubby in the world who would let me get a laptop rather than do responsible stuff like save money and buy new socks.
I want to get a Dell Insprion 15. It's a good fit for me. True, it's not the MacBook Pro I wanted, but hey-I get to keep all of my organs. The other option I posted about was the Toshiba A500 and, to be honest, I just can't live with that kind of battery life. What can I do online in 2.5 hours? Practically nothing! So, I'm pretty sure I'm going to get the Insprion 15....the hard choice now is which of the rainbow colors do I want?
Speaking of rainbows (do you like that segue? I do!) guess what we saw today? DOUBLE rainbows! Right there, in front of our house! I couldn't get great pictures of the double rainbow, but I did get a good one of the single, stronger rainbow in a nice sun shower picture.
MMMMMMMMMM-fall, laptops, sun showers, rainbows....give me a kitten and I'm a walking cliche of happiness.
