So, I am typing this from my phone presently. I ended up having to completely restore my P.C., new operating system and all.
I am glad it held up as well as it did for as long as it did, and seeing as it was a gift from my father, I’m glad I didn’t have to trash it.
Nonetheless, having to do the restoration was totally frustrating. Thankfully, I had a good distraction while it was doing it’s thing, I hung out with my wife and we watched old episodes of Rescue 911.
