Computer Blues

My computer is toast. It turns out the motherboard is fried -- something I didn't know could still be done! But somehow I managed it. Why must I be so special?

Naturally this throws my online course into a bit of a tizzy. I'm trying to recover. The Best Buy Geek Squad actually recommended that I buy a new PC!

What's a new PC run?
And how soon does the course require your attention?

Re: What's a new PC run?
I've been using my mother's computer at night. I can't even think about how much a new one would cost -- it kinda wasn't in the game plan! I've always had more know-how than money, so while I lusted for Alienware and other such power machines, I made do with the UBid.com auction winners that cost me $300 or so. My current victim was an HP Pavilion, and my last victim was a Compaq Presario. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do. There's a laptop I could use, which desperately needs a battery. I may just buy the battery ($100) and get a DVD backup of my hard drive ($90) and take it from there.

I'm in the class NOW. My final paper is due in two weeks, and my instructor INSISTS that I rewrite another paper by next week. They're both on various aspects of the original Frankenstein novel. I've been feeling pretty monstrous, so I should be in the perfect mood--!
