HALLELUJAH! It's alive!!! It's ALIVE!!!!

ahem....i got my laptop back. it seems to be fully functional now. haven't run it through the full gammet yet, but so far so good. it found my cd/dvd drive on the first boot, then again on the reboot. i have it playing sleepy hollow right now, to see if it'll make it through enough of the movie to be functional. i'll try making it skip aftier a few minutes into it, just to triple check. praise the gods....

this will be a one time request, because i'm sure some of you are sick of hearing about it: go vote in the webbies. while i may not completely like the idea of LJ becoming the focus of national media (national media = attention here by many americans = more members who are probably AOHellers and the like who don't grasp the beauty of what LJ is, they only bitch when something like the directory doesn't work...), i want to see the site win an award and gain the recognition it deserves. vote for LiveJournal, address www.livejournal.com; the categories to vote for it in are Personal Site, Community, and Services. while the Community vote isn't likely to win us an award, we are currently in the lead in both the Personal Site category (ahead of Blogger by about 4%) and the Services category. if we win the services category, Brad and Insomnia already plan to share the award with PayPal (since they are core to how we gather money). see the following for more info: here, here, here

*grumble* i got another of those damned crushlink things. whoever it is that thinks i linked them, i didn't. i'm flattered that you have a crush on me or that you think i have a crush on you, but the fact of the matter is that i despise crushlink. so if you happen to be that person, let me know please. that is, unless you really have a crush on me, in which case you don't necessarily have to tell me, but it'd be nice. :)
