My computer started acting weirdly on Friday. For two days I played with it, ran diagnostics and virus software and couldn't figure out what was wrong. Monday we took it to RNS computers at Northpoint (testimonial: if you live in the Peoria area and need an awesome computer repairman, take it to Ron). On Tuesday one of the technicians called to say the hard drive was hosed. I just purchased this new Dell so I was pretty upset. Jeff said since it was under warranty, they could ship it back to Dell for a replacement hard drive. All my software is on this computer - Studio, CorelDraw, Elements, Microsoft Office, MTC, Design Studio, Outlook, iSkySoft. Luckily, I learned from the last disaster and I keep all of my files on an external drive. I just keep my software on my laptop.
It could be several weeks before my computer comes home and Mike starts work on the bathroom on Monday so I might take a break from actual card making and just catalog.
