I thought I was going to make it through GCC without a hard-drive crash, but no; I didn't. My computer would not start up yesterday, so I brought it to the TLC and when I asked the girl who was staffing the desk what caused the malfunction, she said simply, "It's a senior computer."
I guess it's just supposed to break down.
Besides happening in a hectic two weeks, however, my computer chose a good time to quit working, for it gave me the opportunity to get a brand new hard-drive in my last few weeks of school. The whole process was pretty painless--until I got back to my room and found that the new Word and Outlook were loaded on my computer instead of my beloved old suite. I hope it's easy to figure out.
