When I graduated from DSU, I purchased my Tablet PC for $900 and had been using it as my regular computer ever since then, until January when I took it to Las Vegas. While staying at Planet Hollywood, the laptop contracted a virus of some sort and had become so infected it barely worked at all.
I e-mailed DSU to see if they would do repairs on it, and sure enough, they were nice enough to take a look. I sent in my hard drive, they fixed it, and sent it back. It sure does work like new! Too new, in fact. Somewhere along the lines, unfortunately, I missed out on the part where they would be erasing everything from the hard drive! I had almost four years worth of files on there, not to mention a ton of software, that is gone forever. Lauren also lost a year’s worth of files. I had all my photos backed up, otherwise everything is gone. I don’t think it’s really hit me yet that everything I’ve done the last four years is gone. I can’t really blame DSU; I should have known to take precaution when sending my hard drive in for repairs.
On the bright side, though, is the fact that I have a computer as good as new aside from a malfunctioning sound card.
We’ve also been hitting up the gym at least four times a week. We have both received comments that it looks like we’ve lost weight. I am down to about 259 according to our scale at home, a loss of about six pounds. I’m running for at least 30 minutes on the elliptical machine, then doing some weights for ten minutes or so. Not a huge workout, but gradually I’m sure it will increase.
In other news, Lauren and I have a very busy Saturday. Supposedly between 8 and 10, Comcast will be at our apartment to install cable and internet. At 11, I need to be 55 miles northwest in Buffalo to take pictures of an event center for a website I’m building. At 3, Lauren and I have a wedding cake tasting. And at night, we have tickets to the Darius Rucker concert at Treasure Island in Red Wing!
