Computer stuff  
Today...we bought a new computer! Here's the story...

We went to the computer store (my mom and I). We found out from a very helpful tech guy and a very unhelpful salesman that once we buy a new hard drive and paid for the service charges and the data transfer and the new virus protection software we might as just get a whole new computer for a little more money. So we bought a new computer that's basically like our old one, but with more storage and memory, a better CPU, and a better CD/DVD drive (which was also in need of replacement on the old compie), and a different brand. We left it at the store for them to try and transfer the data from the old computer, and then once we take it home I can connect it to our old moniter and install the brand-new virus protection package and microsoft office and everything...

Yeah, apparently the anti-virus software we were using before was pretty bad...

And I'm really not upset to say goodbye to the old computer. It had wayyy too many issues.

And...if I get more issues, all you mac users can say "I told you so."

They are wicked expensive, true. But, it pays for itself in lack of virus issues, fewer repairs, and love.

Well, I'll probably be getting a laptop within the next couple years, and at that point I'll definitely consider getting a mac.
