so last week, my faithful fully loaded bible of a laptop started SMOKING. I don't mean it developed some personification like qualities and picked up a cigarette. I mean smoke was billowing out of the motherboard. sonofabitch. I don't know yet if the hard drive is smoked or salvagable. luckily I purchased a 2nd laptop from my ex bf a year or so ago. not as powerful or nice but a good back up. however, said back up had a buggy keyboard so I couldn't type. After hours of research I found a fix/work around and I can type on it now.
So...I am doing side work for a friend...graphics and flyers and what not. so all my ...everything was on the other laptop. everything. (thank god for over sharing photos on facebook because...yeah. ) so I had to figure out how to download my graphics program that I purchased legit in 2009 onto this new laptop. I managed to get that to work. and downloaded a free trial of adobe something (that lets you convert PDF to doc files. nevermind) and regular adobe acrobat. so I manage, after ALL evening, to get everything singing and I get the flyer made and I go to print it as a PDF. in adobe. and its crap. garbled crap.
so I download a free PDF printer. one I have used for years. and voila. perfect PDF. WTF, Adobe?
If you are lost, it goes like this...computers are a pain in the ass...especially during MERCURY EFFING RETROGRADE!!!
So now that I have this computer de-bugged and all kinds of stupid ass annoying add ons and virus wannabes removed I feel like maybe it will function for me. I miss my STUFF. I had a lot of STUFF on the other one and I hope the hard drive is salvageable. ergh.
In other news, I am turning my attention to documentaries this week because cartoons are...well ...not playing right now.
Its not 12:30 and I was planning to hit the hay at 10. hahahaha!!
ok. here endeth the most boring technical rant EVA.
