Hello, Hello Hello fellow forumites!
Indeed, you may all groan in abject irritation, because THE D is back on the 'net!
Having finally re-assembled my computer, or rather, the frakenstinian creation of various not working computers and wwwwwaaayyyyy to many external hard drives, followed by three day of tinkering with the wirelesscard, then two days of messing with drivers, internet options and requiring the help of about four different housemates
THE INTERNET FINALY WORKS AGAIN!
Good to be back.
I actually was unaware that you could have too many external drives...
