I hope everyone is having a good Christmas. I wish you all the best. Take care.

What happened? Nov. 8th, 2007 @ 02:40 pm
My laptop quit on me very suddenly and apparently, permanently. I was just picking it up and it unceremoniously went black, shutting off completely. I try pressing the power button and... nothing. And it appears that the warranty/service plan has lapsed. The one extremely good thing about this is that I have just about everything except emails backed up on an external hard drive.

So it looks like I'll be purchasing a new laptop and putting my prospective Christmas money toward that rather than a new couch. Ugh. Not that either item is essential, and not that I don't have the money for both if I really wanted. Just... ugh. New computers are great fun, but not as much when their purchase is due to the failure of another one.

So, if you would be so kind, please send me a message with your email address/messaging program name or email address/whatever else I would need to know about you that has most likely gotten lost since I no longer have access to my Outlook Express address book. Thanks.

What should I do? Mar. 7th, 2007 @ 10:14 pm
I am most likely going to have next Friday & Saturday off. I haven't had two days off in a row for a long time. Because of this, I have almost no clue what to do.

I want to do something fun with a certain special someone. This could involve taking a short trip (as in Madison, Chicago, etc.) and/or staying overnight somewhere, or it could just involve staying in Milwaukee and visiting a few interesting places around here. So if you know of any places, indoors or out, that are fun, adventurous, romantic or just plain worth seeing, please let me know!

Phishing email alert! Mar. 6th, 2006 @ 11:12 pm
Wow, they're getting better with these things! I just got an email that looked VERY much like it was from Amazon.com (in the email properties, urls and everything) saying my bank had contacted them and there had been some unauthorized charges/listings on my credit card linked to Amazon.com and would I please click on the link and provide info or else my acct. would be deleted. Of course I'm ever the suspicious one, but this one really had me wondering. It looked real enough for me to be concerned that somehow someone had gotten a hold of my credit card info and/or Amazon info and gone nuts. So I called up Amazon in a panic and the nice Indian fellow on the other end quickly confirmed that this was indeed a phishing email.

Long story short: don't click on the url, don't provide info, etc., etc. Even if the mofo looks real. Contact the source (via phone) first to confirm that it's indeed legitimate.
