The people I stay with (who have been mega-wonderful) have offered to let me use one of their pc's and their adsl while I am discomputered. I hope to have a replacement pretty soon though, because I have plenty of deadlines that need typed submissions!
Interesting - the pc is running Ubuntu. I've not worked with Ubuntu before and I wonder if God is saying something.
I'm not in a hurry to go back to Vista, although I haven't found it as bad as some say. Also netbooks use Ubuntu. And they are kind of cool.
I thought I had lost a major portion of my masters thesis. BUT my daughter had that chapter on her pc where she had checked through it for me. I will have to redo a small amount of work. The worst though is that I am on a tight schedule and cannot afford to lose this time.
Hopefully the post hasn't lost my phase 1 assignments, because my only backup was on my pc!
My worst loss is my feeds and my favourites - especially stuff I had favourited for future use in my masters, but if that is the worst, I can live with it.
