Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder...

15 days... It's been 15 days since I last blogged. Editor's Note: Not that anyone's noticed. Here's why:

Two Monday's ago my computer (a 2005 Mac Powerbook G4 laptop) threw a little tantrum and stopped doing work (son). So I took it into the stop to get repaired the following day. Since their are no Apple stores in South Carolina, I tracked down a local business that repairs Macs. Based upon a recommendation from a friend and my cousin, I took my machine to Wegener Media. They told me that it would take 1-3 business days to diagnose. It took 7 regular days. They told me that I needed a new Logic Board (motherboard for you PC users) and DC-in board (something to do with getting power into the computer). After they told me the price for the repairs (frown), I (and by "I", I mean my mom) took a few days to get the money together and then went ahead with the repair. My computer was returned to me this past Friday. But over the weekend, I noticed that its speakers were malfunctioning. Editor's Note: This made my weekend viewing of Dead Like Me on Hulu very confining. You know... because I had to use headphones... So I wrote an email to Wegener to explain the situation. They wrote back and told me to bring my machine in and they would take care of the repair!

I now have my computer back, and all systems are go! (If you're in the Columbia, SC area, and need Mac repair, I would highly recommend Wegener Media.)

So, starting today, blogging resumes as normal. Boo Yah...
