What do you get for 60 quid*?

your computer back EXACTLY the same as when you dropped it off.  Ooooh wait you also lose all of your backed up files on your external hard drive.  I’m soooo glad I spent all that money!  One good thing to come from this entire affair is that my house is CLEAN people.  CLEAN!!  I actually let a stranger into my bedroom.  I wouldn’t have done that a week ago!  I know you’re wondering who I let into my bedroom.  Computer dude that’s who (whom?)!  I get the stupid thing home and try to connect to the internet (oooooh internets how I missed you!)  only to find that I can’t.  So I called him and he came out and fixed my wireless router problem.  I don’t really know what the problem was but he fixed it and didn’t charge me anything so I’m happy.  Well as happy as you can after spending 60 quid for nothing.

So folks I’m off to read blog, catch up on news and Flickr my heart out.

just in case you were having Squidge withdrawals.

*I use quid instead of the GBP sign because my keyboard is a US one and I’m too lazy to look up and remember the ascii code for the pound sign.

    I’ll take your £60 and do nothing – just let me know next time!

    BTW £ = Alt 0163
    use the key pad and type numbers while holding down the Alt

    Yikes! I’m taking my Mac in on Saturday. Fingers crossed it will be less painful that your ordeal. And that it will work!

    Glad you are back!

    Thanks everyone, I’m so happy to be back!

    Maria- no my internal hard drive is on it’s last legs, that’s why my computer is sooo slow and locks up all the time.

    Amy- you have a Mac, it will be infinity better than my experience. We’ve decided to buy a Mac I just don’t know which one to get- an iMac or a MacBook. An iMac sounds like the way I should go because I don’t have to travel with it but I like the idea of being able to if/when I need to
