    Computer!

    In October, I went away for a weekend. My computer was broken and I thought I could fix it easily. But, I was wrong. I couldn't get it to fix with just the Windows Repair console, and then i tried reinstalling windows. Neither worked. I let a week go by, to figure out what to do, and afterwards, I made the decision to call dell. Now, dell ran me through many steps, one of which was a hard drive diagnostic. I ran thi, and in 5 minutes, I knew what the problem was. Drive 0, my hard drive, failed the diagnostics test. The dell agent then told me he could ship a free hard drive to me, and it would be covered by my warranty. I asked a few questions, wary that it was "free" and finally agreed. It got here 3 days later, and my dad picked up the mail from the Post Office. When he handed the box to me, he asked very catuiously what was inside, but I replied nothing. 2 Days later whne both my parents were away, I started to replace the hard drive. Of course, just like my luck, my dad came home early in the process, and asked what I was doing. He immediatly saw the hard drive, and a fuse blew in his head and he yelled at me louder than I had ever seen him before. (Yes, louder then last year when I got bad grades) He told me he was going to ground me for a month to let me think about what I had done. Mod-November came, and I was un-grounded. I was about to replace the hard drive, when lo and behold... there was a bill with the new hard drive. Of course, my dad blew another fuse, and decided to ground me for half a month and hire a technician to replace the hard drive. The day that the hard drive was replaced was yesterday, as was when my ground was lifted. Now, im ground-free with a brand spanking new harddrive.


    So, that is the story of why I have not been on now. I want to make a few more comments:
    -I did not recieve the laptop I thought I would, but the computer ended up getting fixed in december anyways.
    -I will be as active as possible from now on, no guarentee though with my luck recently ;P
    -I know this doesn't excuse anything, and I will talk to a few of the people who may know what im talking about.

    I did re-install WoW this morning, and I am going to D/L MSN right afterwards for any of you who would like to talk to me, if any of you even remeber me

    Thanks for reading this far, although you didn't need to,
    Hallowsend

    That is probably the most true sentence I have heard in 2 months.

    By the way, I have not seen your name before. Are you new? If so, welcome and gratz on mod.

    Yea, Dell is out to get me. I am suprised they didn't try to stall it even more until my warranty ran out so I would have to pay for even talking to them.

    Nice to meet you too risker, and congratz on mod, since I suppose I am a bit late O_o

    Well, you were appointed to moderator status before I welcomed you, so I figured I would save a line of text and say them both together
