I am moderately dismayed by the news, but I'm trying to be positive about things. Any amusing suggestions on putting things in perspective would be appreciated. I was going to be pragmatic about it, but then I remembered that most people think of pragmatism the same way Dennis Miller does: that it means you think everyone's an *sshole except yourself.
Laurel's spending the weekend with her paternal parents and I got the CD-RW drive installed on the other computer... now if I could get it to format the one CD-RW disc I have (I have a couple spindles of CD-R discs, but you should expect that of me) I'd be able to quickly transfer this month's photos to my box. Argh. (:
