Like a prodigal child who has been wondering the streets of the big city, my PC has finally schleped it home after spending the better part of the month in the seedy dustbins of the local Best Buy Geek Squad headquarters. I'm doing my best not to shout names like "tramp" and "harlot" when I walk in the room. After all, she did return, albeit to have her entire system wiped clean and XP reloaded. I feel like a distraught parent that had no choice but to send their child to one of those mind-cleaning boot camps in hopes that they would return to once again be the child they knew long ago.
I not so much got the old child, but a totally different one! She has such potential! (beam)
