So, it'll be just one more day. That's all - I promise. You know how I said I'd have a working PC by this weekend? That got bumped up to tomorrow. It's my PC from the airport - I left it there when I took off, 'cause my home PC was about the same specs. Besides, my brother-in-law was taking over the job, and I figured he could use it to play WoW or something on the job. :D Well, he has a laptop that outstrips it, and he's going to be in the city tomorrow, so he's bringing it by. I'll be slapping the old HD into it, transferring over a few components here and there, and consolidating the RAM so that I wind up with better than I started with. :D
On the bright side of all this, it HAS enabled me to noodle through comic stuff. That's a good thing. Well, in my opinion anyway. Let's just say... I have plans. *cue stereotypical evil laughter*

OKAY. Time for an update on this, as I've finally started getting actual ducks into rows. First off, it would appear my hard drive is, in fact, in perfect working order. Finally got it all hooked up in Liz' beast, and verified all the data was there. Tonight, I back up everything onto a DVD, and copy the source files back over to my laptop so I can get some work done. In the meantime, I should be able to get a working desktop machine back up by this weekend - so wish me luck. :) And also, I'm going to be taking some steps to ensure that computer outages will never again cause Real Life to be in jeapordy. Trust me on that one - I have a plan. :)
So, don't hold me to this 100%, but I'm fairly sure we can have a new comic up tomorrow. :)
When it rains, it pours....directly into my computer, frying something.

Any of you watch "My Name is Earl"? Well, if not, you should. It's funny as hell. But let's just put it this way... I think it's time I started up my OWN list. Karma's out to get me.
I guess I'll just be out with the bad news first - no comic tomorrow. Possibly no comic friday, and hell... I don't really know when I'll get things back up. Why? Is it because school is kicking my ass and I can't get it together? No.
It's because no less than two weeks after I had the GALL to move my comic files off of my laptop and onto my PC... my PC dies. Not sure what's wrong with it yet, but it's no crash or anything... this is hardware death. Could be the Video card, could be the CPU or the motherboard, might even be the power supply for all I know (I've only known them to either work or not work - but hey, maybe there's some kind of gray area where it'll turn on but not power all your devices. Long story short, I push the button, the machine powers up, but never even posts. Don't get a video signal, but ALSO don't get a beep at post, or sound from when it loads into windows, which leads me to believe this is not a video card problem. Basically, shit's BROKE.
It's a... hell, SIX year old computer. I guess it was about time. But it really cramps my damn style. I'm going to have to tear out the HD and slap it in Liz' computer (from whence I post) to see if the HD still works - if IT'S dead, suffice to say there will be a large amount of ranting, raving, and breaking things, followed by a week of binge drinking, rounding off with a nice bout of good old fashioned depression.
No money to repair it at the moment, so we'll see what happens. If I can save the files, I can get things rolling on the laptop again in the next day or two. But DAMN does it suck to have my machine die on me. This is really not what I needed this evening. *sigh*
