Ladies and Gents,

I proudly announce my return.  Why the long absence?  Well, where do I start?  Let’s start with the fact that my laptop was dead, that’s right D-E-A-D.  The NVIDIA chip in it fried my motherboard, many of you have probably heard of the NVIDIA debacle.

Either way, I sent it to HP and then some jumping back and forth started.  For the first month HP was out of motherboards.  Imagine that.  Anyway, after many phone calls, I managed to get it sped up and have my laptop repaired before some other people. Bitches.  Well either way, they repaired it, sent it back.

I live in Kentucky for those of you who don’t know, well to the point.  I got my laptop back with a brand NEW SPANISH KEYBOARD?  Yes.  That’s right bitches.  I got a new motherboard, and a Spanish Keyboard.  Well as you can imagine, I sent it back.  Waited about a week and got it back. Worked like a charm! Well, it worked…for three days.  After three days it started shutting down randomly.  Yet another repair service call.

Well after waiting for a while, I get my laptop back again.  This time, with an upgrade, oh yeah bitches.  Got a New CPU ( went from 1.6 to 1.8 ) and a new Harddrive.  Well, there were minor hitches and glitches when I got it back, but it was all software related.  Nothign yo daddy couldn’t take care off.

I believe that I am back now.  I’ll post another update tomorrow, to catch you guys up with how my summer has been.  There is much to talk about, and very much time to tell them!

Enjoy the stay ladies.

Absence and FireFox 3.0

Those of you who have been here before will notice that I haven’t updated my blog for quite some time.

The best reason I have is the fact that my laptop is in Texas, I am in Kentucky. See the problem? It was supposed to have been fixed a long time ago, but fucking HP keep pushing the date back, and I am starting to lose my cool! How fucking hard is it to replace a damn motherboard? From my past experience it’s not that fucking hard.

Every time I talk to HP they give me some bullshit excuse, and I am starting to get fed up. If my laptop doesn’t arrive by the 17th (as agreed upon) I will be royally pissed. They are trying to convince me it’ll take them another 2 weeks (making it a total for 4 weeks) to fix the laptop. Bullshit. I want my fucking laptop back HP!

On a brighter note. For those of you that don’t know what else is happening on the 17th I’ll be more than willing to enlighten you.

June 17th, 2008 is DOWNLOAD DAY!

What’s download day?! It’s the day you get your sorry ass over to http://www.firefox.com, and download FF3. Do it. Don’t ask questions. Just do it.

It’s worth the time. Free yourself from the evil hands of Microsoft and Apple, and set yourself free with FF3!

Well that’s that, a quick update. I am sure I’ll be back bitching some more because my laptop isn’t repaired.
