You wouldn't know it, because I'm still posting from the desk, but I do have my laptop back now. I'm probably going to have to start transferring files to the Toshiba soon, because the keyboard has issues, but at least I can start getting something done about all these patterns I've been promising.
The next project is to get the scanner working again, that's always touch and go. Plug and Play, my ass. More like Plug and Pray. Cause sometimes it works. And usually it doesn't. At least not the first try. But I've gotten it working before, and have no intention of unplugging it once it's set up this time.
