Apparently my computer couldn't handle all the comments you showered me with the past few days because it DIED. You killed my computer.
But get this. When I called my friendly HP support person, Bob (I'm thinking his middle name might be Habib or perhaps Kumar) either way, "Bob" informed me that the warranty on my computer expires tonight at midnight. Can you believe that? My computer died on the last day of its warranty. So, I have to thank you for killing my computer in time. As it is, "Bob" is sending me a box to ship my precious baby away for service. In the meantime I am using its evil, unreliable cousin, Old School Dell. Old School Dell likes me to wait a few seconds in between typing words. He likes to randomly stop my mouse in mid-scroll and then go real fast around the screen. Old School Dell has problems.
Please wish my precious baby Slimline HP a speedy recovery. In lieu of flowers, comments will be accepted.
