I'm sorry bb I feel your pain take away my laptop and it won't be pretty. Hope everything looks better for you soon and I will wait patiently for the update because your story was very entertaining and crap a cliffhanger.
Hang in there it will get better, no worries about the wait I will always wait for a good story, see you when you get back into it.
Thanks for the support. It means a lot.
I hope they'll be able to fix your computer soon.
Dude that sucks, as a fellow computer addict I fully understand your pain and withdrawl. But on a plus side it gives the creative jucies a chance to stew and such. See there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and hey this time its ot s train!!!
Hopefully my current anxiety won't affect my creative juices. If it does, I fear my characters will be very unhappy indeed.
I'll definitely try it, though I'm still not so sure what's going on. My antivirus software is doing a full scan. I didn't think it would take very long, so I decided to stay up until it finished. Well it's been almost seven hours now and it's still going. I've been up all night. I have officially been awake for over 24 hours.
Sorry I'm ranting like this. I get rambly when I'm tired.

I'm sorry. :(
I'm on my computer nearly as much as you are, and when I had to have it serviced (damn, that sounded dirty) and didn't have it for almost 3 weeks, I nearly died. I hope you get it back soon!
The last time I was without my computer for a long time, I actually stared going through withdrawal. No one wanted to be near me, I was so pissy. Pretty much every negative emotion I experience manifests itself as anger. I only express it when I'm around my family, though, so it's like months of repressed, concentrated anger is (are? You know I'm tired when I am doubtful about grammar) comes out. About 80% of the time I'm with my family, I'm incredibly explosive. Why do they love me, again? I apologize for all of this, by the way. I get rambly when I'm tired.
It's been almost EIGHT HOURS. How is my virus scan still running?! Granted, I do have a shitload of stuff on my hard drive (I have about 8 gigs of space left), but this is ridiculous!
my husband makes sure the computer gets turned on when he gets up. Every moment I'm not involved and even during the moments I am involved in stuff I'm constantly on the computer. I have a laptop but it's so old it can't be plugged into anything so I have to use wireless and that screws up my desktop.
You can make it.
I hate wireless! It's so slooow. It takes me about 3-5 minutes to download an episode of a show using my college's wired internet. I get home, and the same file takes me two hours to download.
Last summer my laptop battery was so dead that my laptop didn't even register it. I bought a new one, and now the old one is a paper weight.
Anyway, thanks for your support! I'm sorry for the wordiness of this reply. I tend to ramble when I'm exhausted.
Dude. I so get this, my family tried to stage an intervention because they thought I had an unhealthy relationship with my computer; if my laptop was broken ... I dont know what I'd do, although I am leaning towards ritualistic suicide. I hope things get better soon.
I'll try to keep this short, but I haven't had so much luck so far. I get very longwinded when I'm sleep deprived. If you look at all my replies to the comments on this entry, you can tell exactly how tired I was when I wrote them. They just get longer and longer and longer...
My computer has only been problematic for 10 hours or so, so suicide hasn't entered the equation yet. I have a process for situations like this, kind of like the five stages of grief. Actually, pretty much exactly like the five stages of grief.
1. Denial and Isolation.
I've been through 1 and 2. I'm in the middle of 3, at least until my virus scan finishes. Depending on the results (I'm actually hoping I get a hit because I know there's something on there, and if my bitchin' antivirus software doesn't pick it up, then I know it has to be really nasty), I may or may not enter into 4. Maybe instead, there will be much rejoicing.
And 5 just won't happen. Ever.
Okay, I think I'm gonna go try to sleep some. Maybe (hopefully!) the scan will be done by then.
Well I will certainly tell you I still want it, but I'm not going to bug you about it. Just remember just because I'm not bugging you doesn't mean I don't want it badly.
I understand your addiction because I myself am probably on it anywhere from six to ten hours a day and thats days that I work, we won't go into the twelve hours I'm there when I'm off.
Hope things get better for you soon.
Thank you for understanding. My anxiety level is slowly creeping back up, unfortunately. I hate feeling this anxious. It sucks.
i hope it all will get better soon! ^__^
Sweetie I can totally relate. Following Hurricane Ike I was without internet or cable for 4 weeks!! I made it a week before I packed up my laptop and headed to a friends house to use their internet. Basically showed up on their doorstep and said hi before hiding out in their room to use the internet.
I can also relate to the dog fiasco. Nothing like being woken up at 3 AM to clean up a mess or having to roast sweet potatoes and buy ground turkey because the food order is going to be late.
Hang in their kiddo. It can only get better.
You know, I actually left town to go back to school only a few days before Ike hit. I was pretty lucky in that respect, but my parents still got caught up in it. My house didn't have power (or plumbing) for a week, and they didn't get internet and cable back for quite some time after that.
Good news is my computer is better now~! My antivirus program found a trojan horse and was like, "BAM, bitch. You're done!"
Peace in my world is now restored.
I feel so bad for you! I feel bad for me too, because I love your fiction**am selfish, but contrite** Hang in there! And here is a big raspberry to anyone that is mean to you:
**TBTTTTT** (I think that is a raspberry!)And I am sending a big hug and a non-exploding can of dog food your way!!!
Thank you! My antivirus program found the problem and kicked it's ass, so my computer is better. Now the only thing keeping you from reading more of my fic is my own laziness. Feel free to bug me about it.
YAY! Everything is fixed now.
Oh, sweetie! That's terrible I really hate the people that think it's fun to screw up other peoples' stuff!! Just take lots of deep breaths and know that we'll be waiting when you get back. Okay, I didn't mean that nearly as stalkerish as that came out. :)
Yeah, I totally don't get that either. My dad got a virus on his computer that changed the subject line on all his emails to "Sorry. I can't write emails right now because I'm stuffing a pig." Only my dad...
The good news is that my computer is all better.
And don't worry, you didn't sound stalkerish!
I recommend McAfee once your pc is back to normal. I CANNOT STAND IT when my system is messed up, so please download it if you can afford to.
In the meantime, take care of yourself sweetheart.
Thanks for the suggestion, but my antivirus program is actually one of the best on the market. As evidenced by the fact that it found a trojan horse and kicked the crap out of it. My computer's all better now!
