Earlier today I received two very annoying bits of news. The first came from Ben, our fears were correct, the hard drive is corrupt so his computer is screwed. Later that day I go to work on my computer and...black screen of death. This means I need a new computer which thanks to Ben I will be getting soon. It will be the cheapest thing we can find but at least it will work. Of course I insist on paying him back, which will take months, so that is frustrating.
If all goes well the wait won't be too long, I hope you don't forget about me while. I am weathering this trying time.
