(I changed my header. And I think it looks pretty cool.)
The laptop works but not as well as it should. We took it to a local repair shop not too long ago when it wouldn't restart. The guy couldn't get the C: drive to work so he simply loaded a version of Windows to the D: drive. Less of a fix and more of a work-around I suppose. And now the audio is kind of funky and everything is a bit slower. I've moved all of my music and photos to an external hard drive that Paige bought but for some reason iTunes won't load for me anymore. That's a lot of favorite podcasts that I've been missing lately.
The good news is that Paige is going to Boston soon to spend time with a friend and go to a Bon Jovi fan club show. Her friend knows her way around these things better than us and I hope that Paige will return home with a laptop that does more of what I want it to do.
In other music news, I was pleased to glimpse in Google Reader that there will be new Tom Waits in April. A second glance revealed that it's just a new Tom Waits bio that's coming out in April. Cool enough, but I'm getting impatient for new songs.
