    Doc Trust me, I'm The Doctor. V.I.P.

    I'm sorry to everyone, but I can't be around very much for the time being. Both the motherboard and CPU died today in my desktop. My laptop doensn't even have any shift keys, I'm using caps lock to make capital letters. I have a hard time just getting one topic to open right now. I'd have a very hard time trying to keep up with the amount of posts we have right now. I need, at minimum, $240 for the parts to fix it. You all know that my van's transmission just died, too, and I have to pay for that.

    I also need a vehicle for work and won't be able to work until the van is fixed (my father is paying for it and I have to pay him back asap) or another vehicle turns up that I can drive. If that doesn't happen within a week I'll lose my job. If I lose my job I stop paying child support and my daughter's mother will see to it that I won't be able to see my daughter again. So, yeah, after that bit of back story I have to say that I don't have the money to spend to fix my computer, nor am I willing to borrow it.

    I'll still have internet access on my laptop with AIM/MSN and I'll check my e-mail. For now I have to take an unknown amount of time away from the forums.

    you could hook a regular keyboard up to your laptop that way you can have some shift keys, sorry to hear that you won't be around for a while, It's going to be super boring without you.

    I'm trying to get the laptop up to speed. It took me ten minutes just to get FF to open.

    512 ram and 2.0 P4 running XP pro. I think its the Dell crappyness and not the hardware itself. Well, I'll see you guys around.
