1) I bought a copy of XP, since I couldn't find a copy locally. I've been stealing from MS for years now, and I love this OS so much, it was worth the $200. This also means my compute ris fixed, by the way.
2) I had the most wonderful conversation with an old friend tonight. You go Jesse ;)
3) Thanks to Liz and Rogue for calling me and putting up with me while I'm sick. I appreciate it :)
