I think my laptop is finally calling it quits. I can get it to turn on every once in a while...but it refuses to admit that the internet exists...so even then it's fairly useless.
Needless to say, this puts a bit of a wrench in the works as far as posting is concerned.
And please note: If your computer starts to sound like it's brewing coffee...know that it's not long for this world. And if it starts to smell like melted crayons...say your goodbyes.
