On the All Is Balance side of life, the harddrive in my laptop is misbehaving to the point of non-operability. So I'm using the back-up Gateway laptop and missing all my easy bookmarks. And the fact that it seems that this machine does not have the office suite on it. Have yet to find a word processor or spreadsheet, which will make getting homework done today all but impossible.
The Spousal Unit plans to pick up a replacement drive on the way home from work, so by tonight I may (assuming successful file transfer) be back up to productive work.
In the meantime, I guess it really is past time I became familiar with Windows. It's been about a decade since the last time.
