frustrated....

The tech never showed today. He called while mom was out so I got his number and tried to get to mom at sister's house but they all went out. When they all came here, I told mom what he said and she was able to talk to him. He was routed somewhere else and they were going to get us a different tech but everything was confused, which was good in itself since we were talking to the first guy for the past week or so and if the other tech came out he might be very snooty... like he might not really "want to" watch over our shoulder as we install Java and Works 2000, at least, nor show us through XP.

Now we have to wait until Friday....

Watched the Animatrix all the way through this evening.

The only one I didn't get was Matriculated...was that the one with the machines being "in the Matrix" instead of the humans? It seemed more like Terminator 2 with the humans having a machine or two on their side fighting the other machines but with the difference of letting the machines choose instead of reprogramming them.

But I don't get it beyond that, it seemed to have no plot and seemed to be just some kinda fancy "look what I can do with all these pretty colors and special effects" type showcase thing with everyone running around in some funky "non-Matrix but also non-real world" type place with avatars that seem to be out of Cybertown and/or Blaxxun Contact's avatar studio....

Did I miss something?

Re: removal
I posted it awhile ago, but now I deleted it last month. It was for people who never posted comments.

Oh yeaaaah.... I think I posted a few comments in a post or two since you removed me but since then I had serious computer problems with a capital S, C and P. My Compaq (which is about 4-5 years old) crashed on me one evening at least a month ago and it looked at first to be the same type of crash that happened about 11 months before but it wasn't. Instead of the HIMEM and other major files suddenly being deleted, I discovered by checking things out in DOS that the Windows directory had...get this....

One icon file...and one extremely big 75 M file with very funny text for a name, dated in August of 1975!! My uncle said that it could have been a virus but anyway he restored it because last year, we had Best Buy do it and then it kinda messed up again so we took it to my uncle for him to network up our computer to his and he did Windows Update... Anyway this time he did restore for us because he could be trusted a little more than Best Buy. This time though, I wasn't there to watch and he did some stuff after restore and never told us exactly what he did and he did stuff we didn't like but he thought was better for us and assumed that we knew how to change it back if we wanted. We forgot to ask too... so when we discovered that the thing we use to install our AT&T dialer wasn't where it supposed to be, I went through a backup Juno account to get the latest dialer and discovered that it, like all other providers, switched to MSIE and didn't give a choice of browsers...so when I told my uncle what changes we didn't like and aksed him for help, he told us how he disabled the "Online Services" folder but by then it was too late because we just couldn't really delete the new dialer to put up the one that we wanted.

Then between that time and the time he was available to take care of it, the CD ROM gave out so we had to take care of that too...then my uncle discovered that we needed cables so we had to go to his house to mess around with his spare cables...but no matter what we did, the CD ROM still wasn't working so we decided to try and get Best Buy's help but between that Monday and that Saturday, he thought he got the CD ROM back but by the time we got to his house, it wasn't working again. (that one Monday night we got it to work...and went to do the reformat and restore, then the CD ROM gave out again after formatting and then later on it worked again and uncle was able to restore Windows)....

Then we discovered that our warranty through Best Buy wasn't expired yet so we used that because we were covered and we got a new motherboard but that didn't help...so that tech decided to order a new CD-ROM and a new A: drive because he thought it was a lemon (it's also a SuperDisk but I just thought the few that I bought were lemons, not the drive itself) so we waited for a week or two for him...meanwhile I came home after he did the new motherboard to find that A: drive wasn't working either so I was pissed....

then all of that got taken care of and we had to wait another week or so for another tech to come out and set up our new Dell....and do data migration...

So you see within the past month or so I've been so super busy to comment on much of anything...but I'm ready now.

Can you add me back pretty please?? Sweet and beautiful and dear gyaru lady with the sweet heart?
